EMMERDALE stalwart Mark Charnock, who portrays fan-favourite Marlon Dingle in the ITV soap, has spoken out about his character’s future.
For the past 26 years, Mark Charnock has portrayed Marlon Dingle on Emmerdale, and this year, the ITV soap opera has placed a lot of emphasis on the character’s difficult stroke plotline. In subsequent scenes, the wedding of Marlon and his fifth wife, Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry), will take center stage. Mark has said that he “assumes the worst” when contracts are being extended, despite the fact that he will be a part of the soap opera’s “sensational” 50th anniversary storylines this fall. The 53-year-old actor and Zoe were asked if they would like to participate in the 60th-anniversary celebrations in a decade when they were speaking to Express.co.uk on the Emmerdale set. There is no tolerance for complacency in this profession, or in any employment today, according to Zoe.However, “we work very much on a year-to-year contract basis and I don’t believe anyone feels like they are here for the long haul.” The actress, who has intermittently been on the serial opera since 2001, expressed how “wonderful it felt” to be married to Cain Dingle actor Jeff Hordely.
Mark also said “Assuming the worst is the best course of action will keep you alert since you must constantly give your all.
“And because it’s been a great work, never take anything for granted.
I feel like the 40th anniversary was just yesterday; that decade has flown by so quickly.
Mark, a Bolton native, joined Emmerdale in 1996 after making two Coronation Street appearances.
Mark hinted that the impending stories for Emmerdale’s 50th anniversary in October are “nothing short of fantastic.”
The actor was allowed to talk about his character’s marriage to Rhona, despite the fact that he was unable to provide any specifics at this time.
Next week, Marlon will make a heartfelt entrance down the aisle in a significant development in his ongoing recovery.
Fans of Emmerdale will be aware that Marlon suffered a stroke in March and has been working hard in his rehab sessions to walk down the aisle.
Mark responded, “They have this lengthy chart of history, they have already been through so many bad times, they sort of have this rich soil this family can develop out of, which is why Marlon and Rhona get along so well. ” The fact that they are both still there bodes incredibly well because they have been through things that may ruin friendships, much alone relationships. Zoe teased, “I love this question, because you can wax lyrical and go, ‘Yeah, I think they’re soulmates,’ but in two years’ time one of us will be dead or with someone else,” implying that their relationship would not endure forever. I don’t say it lightly; I simply mean that the present moment is what you need to play.But who knows? “In that episode and in the scripts we’ve been working on for the past few months, in my head I’m like, ‘This is the appropriate time and they’re soulmates. Mark highlighted that although their relationship “might fail next week,” “right now they are as strong as a couple can be.”
