James Redmond joins Emmerdale


Former CASUALTY actor James Redmond is set to join the cast of Emmerdale.

The secrets of the past come home to roost for Emmerdale’s Ruby Haswell (Alicya Eyo) when her ex-boyfriend makes an appearance in the most unlikely of circumstances.

James Redmond, who is also known for his role in Hollyoaks, will play Seb who re-appears in Ruby’s life as she struggles with mounting debt and unsuccessful attempts to become pregnant and have a much yearned for baby with her partner, Ali (Kelli Hollis).

Consequently Ruby applies for a job as a carer who looks after an elderly gentleman, William, who just happens to be her former boyfriend’s father.

Veteran actor, Dudley Sutton, takes the role of William, who with his old fashioned attitude, initially makes things difficult for Ruby.

James and Dudley will be on screen from the end of February.

James said: “Having taken a 5 year break from acting to concentrate on stand up comedy I am really looking forward to getting back on the horse. It will be great to join the cast of Emmerdale and Seb will be my first time playing a northerner!”

Kate Oates, Emmerdale Series Producer says: “We’re delighted to have Dudley and James filming with us. Their wealth of acting experience makes them great additions to the show.”
