Emmerdale Faye actress Jane Gurnett’s life off air – from famous ex and ‘miracle’ baby to rival soap stint
Faye, a recent addition to Emmerdale, has recently been introduced to the ITV soap opera as Mary Goskirk, portrayed by Louise Jameson, potential love interest. They have been seeing each other and getting closer.
Following a succession of bad dates for Mary, Faye, played by actress Jane Gurnett, made her debut in the Dales back in January.
But as the two have grown closer in recent months, viewers have come to believe that Faye’s entry is connected to a much larger ongoing plot, and some believe it may be connected to last week’s revelation that Caleb is Nicky’s father.
But while we wait to learn the real identity of the newcomer Faye, we have closely examined Jane Gurnett’s life off-camera.
Here is what we know about the soap opera star outside of public view.
