It has been announced that former Waking The Dead star Wil Johnson will join ITV 1 soap Emmerdale as a regular cast member.
Johnson will play mechanic Dominic Andrews a single parent, accompanied by his wayward teenage daughter Gemma (played by 14-year-old Tendai Rinomhota).
“I can’t wait to get started. I am looking forward to an exciting journey. I’ve been told anything could happen with my character.”
I have watched Emmerdale on and off throughout the years and to my knowledge the 40 year old soap has NEVER cast a black family before, so it will be interesting to see what storylines the script writers come up with and if the characters last longer than six months.
Congratulations Wil and Tendai.
