Established actor Jonathan Wrather has joined the cast of Emmerdale as Pierce Harris.
Unknown to Pierce, his wife Tess (Nicola Stephenson) is having an affair with Emmerdale’s long serving vet Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt). But with Pierce now on the scene, is it only a matter of time before their clandestine secret is exposed?
When Paddy and Tess first met she was open about being married but Paddy never expected to come face to face with her handsome husband. His arrival is set to be a dramatic one and he will first appear on screen mid February.
Jonathan has a wealth of television and theatre credits to his name and is best known for his roles in Coronation Street and Silent Witness.
Jonathan said: “I am thrilled to be joining Emmerdale. It’s a great opportunity to be offered the chance to create a new character in one of TV’s most popular shows and I’m very excited to be working with such an outstanding cast and team.”
Emmerdale airs weeknights on ITV.
