Actress Emily Head has joined ITV serial drama Emmerdale to play the character of Rebecca White, the feisty sister of Chrissie and aunt of troubled teen Lachlan.
Rebecca’s entrance is set to be dramatic and she will continue to raise tensions within her family and in the village for months to come. Best known for her role as Carli D’Amato in The Inbetweeners, Emily will be first seen in the role in October.
Speaking about joining the cast, Emily said: "I am really looking forward to joining the Emmerdale cast, and so excited to be the one to put a face to the name Rebecca White. I can't wait to see how the village reacts to her arrival."
Series producer Iain Macleod commented: “The character of Rebecca is a brilliant addition to the village. She's funny, feisty and flirtatious - she might turn your fella's head but, importantly, she has a good heart. Emily couldn't be more perfect for this role and we're delighted to have her aboard - the chemistry between her and our regulars is already electric."
Stay tuned to see what lies in store for the wayward sister's return and the entire White family this Autumn.
