During the years since Brrokside was axed some of the actors have not been seen on television. What has happened to them. I know Claire Sweeney and Jennifer Ellison is still doing well and also Raymond Quinn. Tina Malone has been very successful in Shameless. Whatever happened to Diane Burke, Alex Fletcher & Tiffany Chapma to name a view.

Also Sarah White who played Bev was really funny and Karen Drury who played Susannah was a very good actress. They could use her in soaps.

Richard Fleeshman's real life Mum played Jackie Corkhill in Brookside and she has been in Emmerdale and in Coronation St.
The woman who plays Pearl in Emmerdale has been in Coronation St and in Brookside.
That Jed Stone character whom Tony Gordon killed (or did he?) in Coronation St was also in Brookside.

Give me a while longer and I'll see if I can think of any more.

And yup; Fair City is muck.

I've seen Steven Pinder who played Max Farnham in a few things since Brookside ended and Gabrielle Glaister who played one of his onscreen wives has also been onscreen quite a bit. There are actually quite a few of them still around it just seems not many have high profile roles.

I really liked both of those actresses too. Various ex cast members have cropped up in Family Affairs and Shameless. Phillip Olivier's been in a few things but there are quite a few (like Alex Fletcher and Dean Sullivan) that I havent seen in anything since. I think I read on here that the guy who played Mike Dixon is now a driving instructor.

Oooh yes, you're right he did. I had forgotten about that. He was a fireman friend of Ben Davies wasn't he? If I remember rightly, the actor also changed his name didn't he?

That girl who played Rachel also appeared in Emmerdale as a nurse for Donald de Souza

Jackie Corkhill (Sue Jenkins) is in a daz advert with Julie Goodyear.

I often wonder what ever happened to Jackie Dixon! She was a good actress

I don't remember her either! The only other role I remember her in besides Edna Birch is Rose in Keeping Up Appearances. It must have been very early Brookside when she appeared

I seem to recall that Leon Lopez (Jerome Johnson) was in the Hollyoaks spin-off and recently spotted Louis Emerick, who played his on-screen dad Mick, in an episode of Holby City. Jack McMullen (Josh McLoughlin) is currently appearing in Waterloo Road.

Louis Emerick played Mike Bateman in Casualty (Tess's husband). Like Sue Johnston and Ricky Tomlinson (who later went on to The Royle Family), Louise Emerick and Suzanne Packer were also onscreen husband and wife in Brookside.
