Max Parker from Emmerdale has joined the cast of a future Netflix project.
The Corps, which follows the tale of homosexual high school student Cameron (played by 13 Reasons Why actor Miles), who enlists in the Marine Corps alongside his closest buddy, stars the actor who portrayed Luke Posner in the ITV serial opera.
Max will play the role of homosexual marine Sgt. Sullivan, who prepares Cameron for life after boot camp because he recognises a little of himself in Cameron. The 10-part dramedy, which is set in the 1990s, also stars Zach Roerig from The Vampire Diaries and Vera Farmiga from Bates Motel as the lead character Cameron’s mother.
Max is best known to viewers for playing Luke Posner in Emmerdale from 2019 to 2021. Since leaving the ITV series, he has also starred in Netflix’s Vampire Academy and the historical drama Blood, Sex, and Royalty, which is a retelling of the Henry VIII story.
The 31-year-old, who is dating his former Emmerdale co-star Kris Mochrie, made the decision to depart the show in May 2021, and his farewell scenes were shown in September of the same year.
At the time, a source told The Sun that “Max was never going to stay on the soap for years.”
He’s bright and driven; he’s already applying for new opportunities and is enthusiastic about the future.
Max’s persona After it was discovered that he had been catfishing Ethan Anderson (Emile John), Luke was caught up in a major storyline at the time of his departure.
Luke revealed what really transpired with his ex-boyfriend Stephen when he told his mother Wendy (Susan Cookson) about what he’d done.
He acknowledged that the bond was “intense,” and at one point he even had plans to introduce Stephen to Wendy before his bigoted brother Lee, portrayed by Mochrie, learned about it and assaulted him.
