Who did Louise Marwood play in Emmerdale?

Back in 2010, Louise Marwood played a minor role as Fiona Heath before going on to star as Chrissie White from October 2014 to late 2017.

The character was killed off in 2018 after her troubled son Lachlan White (Thomas Atkinson) caused a car crash, which also killed his grandfather Lawrence White (John Bowe).

Speaking about leaving the show at the time, Louise said: "I am very sad actually, because we have become really close.

"Myself, Ryan Hawley (Robert), Tom Atkinson (Lachlan) and John Bowe (Lawrence) all came into the show at the same time. And it feels like Emily Head (Rebecca) has been here all the time too, as we've become so close.

"Obviously we'll stay friends forever, but I'm not going to see them every day, so that will take a while to sink in. It's everybody else in the building too, like the crew. It's amazing team of people - I have never met a team like it in my life and I may never again, so that's incredibly sad.

"I am going back to London now, so who knows what's next? It's that thing of going to auditions. It was the right time to leave, as three years is a good stint to do.

"It's very tempting to stay, but my life is in London, so it was time to go. It's a hell of a gamble to take as you never know what is around the corner, but that quite excites me."

Where is Louise Marwood now?

Louise recently joined Coronation Street as Camilla, the former wife of Phill Whittaker (Jamie Kenna).

"She is set to cause chaos as Fiz and Phill’s wedding gets closer.

"But what does she want? And will Fiz be able to deal with both Camilla and future mother-in-law Mimi misbehaving?"
