Amanda (from Bad Girls, LA Law and Frasier) will be joining the Emmerdale cast at Christmas.
She'll be playing Natasha Wylde who moves to the country with her husband Mark, played by Maxwell. (Remember him? He played Michael Carrington in Grease 2 alongside Michelle Pfeiffer and was in Casualty a few years ago.)
Series producer Anita Turner says, 'I'm thrilled to be welcoming two actors of such high calibre to the cast.'
Emmerdale bosses aren't giving anything away about the storylines the couple will have, but they have said they will be at the centre of some gripping TV next year. We can't wait!
