To celebrate a magnificent year of drama in the Dales, Inside Soap rounded up some of our favourite actors to canvass for your votes – and gave them the star treatment…
Zoe Henry was the first of the cast to arrive, and enjoyed taking a break from Rhona’s painkiller-addiction woes to dress up in a stunning vintage frock for our Downton Abbey-inspired shoot. “I’d wear this as a wedding dress,” grinned the actress, who’s married to Jeff Hordley (Cain) in real life.
Next up was bubbly Michelle Hardwick, who ditched vet Vanessa’s green overalls and looked pretty in pink. Down-to-earth star Laura Norton (Kerry) was a world away from trashy Kerry in an elegant sequinned gown, and we enjoyed chatting to Gaynor Faye about everything from alter ego Megan having a roll in the hay with Cain (we wish – don’t tell Zoe!) to tips on apply Dancing On Ice-style fake lashes and glitter (remember, she won the show in 2006).
Representing the Dales fellas, Adam Thomas (Adam) looked dapper in a sharp suit and was amusingly coy about his nomination for Sexiest Male. He also recalled filming a sexy scene with Sammy Winward (Katie) this year. “Somehow she got away with keeping her clothes on and I had to take my top off!” he chuckled.
