What happened to Emmerdale’s Dawn Woods and where is Julia Mallam now?
Who was Dawn in Emmerdale and how did she die? Here’s what we know…
Fans of Emmerdale will be familiar with Dawn Woods because she and her husband Terry moved to the Dales in 2003.
Before her untimely death in 2006, she spent three years on the soap opera and was a part of various significant storylines.
But who actually played Dawn Woods, and who was she? This is what we do know:
Who was Dawn Woods?
Fans of Emmerdale were originally introduced to Dawn as the estranged daughter of Bob Hope and Terry Woods’ fiancée.
Her most notable plots were the birth of their son Terry Junior and her marriage to Terry, a man who was 27 years older than she was.
After Terry had a stroke shortly after TJ was born, Dawn and Terry separated up.
She then started dating her stepbrother Scott Windsor before starting a relationship with Danny Daggert.
How did Dawn Woods die?
After dying at the King’s River display home in July 2006, Dawn was eliminated from Emmerdale.
In accordance with Sadie King’s instructions, Cain Dingle purposefully damaged the building, damaging the gas pipe.
Jimmy was aware of the damage, but he didn’t want to delay the opening of the King’s River housing project.
He hastened the repair work in an effort to avoid any delays, with the intention of fixing it correctly afterwards.
Dawn was injured in the explosion that followed the malfunctioning gas pipe, but although first appearing to have just minor wounds, her condition quickly deteriorated and she eventually passed away from internal wounds.
The explosion also claimed the lives of estate agent David Brown and Noreen Bell.
The 2007 British Soap Awards’ Spectacular Scene of the Year award went to the explosion.
Where is Julia Mallam now?
After her role in Emmerdale, Julia co-starred alongside Sherrie Hewson in the spring 2007 episode of Soapstar Superchef.
They advanced to the championship round but fell short to Hayley Tamaddon and Mathew Bose.
She had an appearance in an episode of the police drama The Bill the same year, and in February 2008, she played a variety of characters in the children’s television series Captain Mack.
She has also appeared in Tyrannosaur (2011), Doctors (2010), Casualty (2009), and That Day (2012).
The previous ten years have seen Julia, who is now 39, avoid the spotlight.
