Early Emmerdale Heartthrob - Ian Sharrock on playing Jackie Merrick - Part Two
Ian Sharrock played Jackie Merrick - Emmerdale Farm's early heartthrob and poster boy. He joined the cast in 1980, eight years into the show's run. Having some young blood in the show was something of a revolution and he quickly became popular with both fellow cast members and the public at large. In a special two part interview, Ian reflects on his Emmerdale days and working with some great actors including his close friend Stan Richards who played Seth. Across the two programmes we also touch on the rest of his career including working with the likes of Danny Kaye, Jodie Foster and David Niven among others.
