Rosie Bentham age: How old is Emmerdale’s Gabby Thomas star?
Rosie is best known for her role as Gabby Thomas on Emmerdale, the late Ashley Thomas’s daughter and Bernice Blackstock’s.
The actress was initially cast in the part in 2016, replacing Annelise Manojlovic, who had previously played the part for 14 years.
The actress has worked on the ITV soap for six years, yet it doesn’t appear like she’s aged a day. Viewers may be startled to hear that she isn’t as old as they might believe.
How old is Rosie Bentham, a star of Emmerdale?
Viewers may be excused for assuming that Gabby was much older given her newborn boy and Kim Tate (Claire King) demeanor.
Rosie plays a character that was actually born on December 25, 2001, and is 20 years old, while acting much older than that.
But since Rosie was born on July 29, 2001, she won’t turn 21 until the following week.
Rosie doesn’t have to act older than she is since even though she is several months older than her alter ego, there isn’t a significant age gap between the two.
The soap star celebrated the event last year by enjoying some cocktails with her friends, according to a photo she posted on Instagram.
The young woman posted on social media while wearing a red dress and holding a glass of gin to mark her special day.
The actress simply wrote “20!!!” as the image’s caption, but she hasn’t yet revealed how she plans to celebrate her 21st birthday.
Since she was 14 years old, Rosie has been portraying the character of Gabby, who was her first big break in the profession.
Because of this, fans have witnessed her develop on-screen even though she had a much younger desire to become an actress.
Rosie joined The Television Workshop in 2013 when she was 11 years old, and there, she appeared in several productions.
When casting for a new version of Gabby—someone who would take on more mature storylines as the character—producers contacted the acting agency.
Prior to being hired for the role on Emmerdale, Rosie had to participate in four callbacks. She made her debut in January 2016.
Since then, she has made numerous other television appearances as herself on the CBBC network, the BBC’s kids channel.
The actress has appeared on programs like Saturday Mash Up in October 2021 and Crackerjack in January 2020.
She has no other accomplishments to her name, though, and it appears that she intends to remain in Emmerdale for some time.
Since she was raised by her mother, Marianne Bentham, and father, John Bentham, Rosie has frequently discussed her early years.
Rosie talked about her earliest memory and what it was like growing up “The noise level in my home was always so high!
“As the youngest of four children, we all had a variety of interests, so somewhere was always being visited.
She said, “As the little one, it was a great place to be, it was just so hectic.”
John, Rosie’s father, passed away from a pulmonary embolism when she was 18 years old, one month after her significant birthday.
The actress has said that losing her father was the deepest pain she has ever experienced, but via her portrayal of Gabby, she has continued to honor him.
When talking about her lifetime accomplishments, Rosie said: “to pursue a career in the field that I do.
“It’s very challenging to enter, and I know a lot of people who have attempted to do so. I’m genuinely grateful.”
The actress also spoke on the finest and worst traits she has acquired as she has aged, saying: “I tend to overthink a lot.
“I consider every circumstance carefully and am concerned with others’ opinions. My best quality is that I make a decent conversation partner.”
