Emmerdale star Louise Jameson, who was previously known for her role as Rosa di Marco on EastEnders, recently swapped Mary Goskirk on the ITV soap. The EastEnders legend expressed her displeasure about the way she was written out from the show. Additionally, the reports previously revealed that Louise has had her Emmerdale contract renewed. The deal means viewers will see Mary on screen until at least the start of 2024. But what actually ‘annoyed’ her about EastEnders’s exit? Let us find out!
Emmerdale: East Enders Legend ‘Annoyed’ Over Her Exit
Emmerdale actress Louise Jameson has shared her dissatisfaction with the way her exit was planned from EastEnders. Louise plays the character of Mary Goskirk on Emmerdale. Previously, she was featured as Rosa di Marco in EastEnders for two years after her debut in 1998. In a conversation with the Inside Soap, she revealed, “I was annoyed about the way it was announced.” She continued, “I was only told the night before it appeared in the papers. I thought they could have run it by me first so I could tell my family. It wasn’t respectful.”
Prior to playing Rhona’s mother, the 72-year-old actress was a member of the East Enders’ Italian Di Marco family. They were referred to as the “family that would rival the Mitchells” by the media. Marcos were known for being introduced and then forgotten. However, Beppe and his son Joe lasted longer than Rosa. A few years back, EastEnders makers planned on “making Rosa racist,” which Jameson objected to and doubted whether that contributed to her departure. The Emmerdale actress said, “When you’re in a soap, people identify you so strongly with the character you’re playing, so I didn’t want to appear racist.”
Louise Plans To Reside In The Dales For A Couple Of Years More
In Emmerdale, Mary explored her sexuality and dated Faye, a con artist who leaked intimate pho tographs to avenge her discovery. Jameson believes Mary likes the village and feels supported despite her problems. She stated, “She belongs nowhere else. Her husband and best friend died. She’s mostly made peace with her daughter Rhona. Where else should she be than with Marlon and the grandchildren?”
According to reports, the former Doctor Who actress renewed her Emmerdale contract. Mary will appear onscreen until 2024 under the deal. When discussing her new Emmerdale contract, she stated, “I signed for another year, so I’ll be there until January 2024.” Maybe a couple of years after that, maybe three or four years.” So, are you excited about her presence on the ITV show?
