Emmerdale’s Zoë Henry addresses the lack of scenes with her real-life husband Jeff Hordley

Emerdel Star Zoe Henry has spoken about how, despite working with husband Jeff Hurdley on the same show, she didn’t get to see him in action much.

The actress plays the role of Rona Guskirk on the ITV series, while her other half plays Cain Dingle.

These characters don’t get a great deal of crossover due to their appearance in different social circles, but sometimes – like Rona’s marriage to Marlon – writers bring them together to share scenes.

Talking about what it was like working alongside her husband, Henry told pass: “[The wedding] It was actually a great two weeks of filming, so it’s really good to see Jeff.

“It’s the day job, it sounds really boring but it’s cool we had to travel together and go home together (for the wedding photoshoot). It’s a boring answer but it’s just our job, I think sometimes you dread those long days.”

“I probably won’t see him for two years unless one of us dies,” the actress joked.
