As resident bad girl Charity Dingle, Emma Atkins has been a part of some of Emmerdale’s most significant stories over the years. Now, she has thought back on some of her favourite co-stars from her 23 years on the programme.
Lawrence Robb and Jessie Elland, who respectively portray Mackenzie Boyd and Chloe Harris on the show, are Lawrence and Jessie’s coworkers on it today, and Emma has revealed that she’s ‘having a ball’ with them.
The three of them have been a part of a major plot thread in which Chloe gives birth to Mack’s child as the couple frantically tries to hide the paternity from Charity.
It is good to know that everyone gets along after spending so much time working together, albeit Emma has said that she has a soft place for everyone at Emmerdale.
On this show, “there is nobody that you don’t enjoy working with.” She spoke.
Emma was able to identify one cast member that stood out as she reflected on her outstanding time spent on Emmerdale: the late Leah Bracknell.
I really enjoyed working with Leah Bracknell. She disclosed. I miss her; she was incredible.
Between 1989 and 2005, Leah portrayed Zoe Tate. Emmerdale’s first lesbian character was a veterinarian and businesswoman who had an affair with Charity in 2001.
After a three-year fight with lung cancer, actress Leah sadly died in 2019.
When the actress’s passing was reported, both soap opera stars and fans expressed their love for her on social media.
Patsy Kensit, who portrayed Sadie King from 2004 to 2006, was another co-star with whom Emma spoke about her experience on set.
Patsy Kensit’s scene in which Charity breaks her neck was wonderful. With that, lady of the manor competing, we had so much fun. That was great; it reminded me of the Dynasty.
In a recent cameo on the rival soap opera EastEnders, Patsy played the mother of Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold), Emma Harding.
