Why is it you never see former Brookside actors on tv any more? I'm thinking of the actresses who played Rachel Jordache, Jacqui Dixon, Bev McLoughlin, Katie Rodgers. They were all good actors and in it for years but I haven't seen any of them in anything since! Where are they now?

Rachel was in one of the Insurance adverts a while ago.
Jacqui has been in a few things.... someone the other day mentioned about her being in an episode of Doctors. Quite a few of the others have appeared in various things too.

but for such big characters you'd expect to see them pop up in other roles - Casualty, The Bill, Holby City etc - not just a tv ad etc. They're decent enough actors and with their long track record in soap you'd think someone else would've snapped them up. You rarely even see people like Dean Sullivan (Jimmy) or the girl who played Nikki Shadwick in anything.

The girl who played Nikki Shadwick (can't remember her real name) was in the Bill a few weeks ago; I was surprised to see her.

Jennifer Ellison has been in Chicago in the West End for a while.

They're all youngish women, maybe they have young kids and are spending time with them?

Jimmy Corkhill was a great character, wish Brookside was still on TV.

I used to love Diane Burke who played Katie - she had such a mournful face!

Max was in Casualty@Holby when they did that donor episode where viewers decided who got the heart transplant. If I remember correctly he was in Emmerdale as one of the lawyers during Steph's trial. My mother also tells me he was in Crossroads during the 1980's.

Indeed he was. He played a character called Roy who worked at the Crossroads garage. he later bought the local shop and had a tempestuous relationship with beauty queen Anne Marie Wade who was played by Dee Hepburn (of Gregory's Girl fame!).

I've thought of a few more:

David Easter (Pat Hanock) - Family Affairs as Pete Callan
Annie Miles (Sue Sullivan) - Family Affairs as Maria Star
Meg Johnson (Brigid McKenna) - Emmerdale as Pearl Ladderbanks
Robert Beck (Peter Harrison) - The Upper Hand and Emmerdale
Nicola Stephenson (Margaret Clemence) - Holby City, Clocking Off, Superstorm and The Chase (to name a few)
Kazia Pelka (Anna Wolska) - Corrie, Heartbeat, Family Affairs
Leon Lopez (Jerome Johnson) - Hollyoaks in the City, Soapstar, Superstar ....

Phew, Brookie really helped a lot of actors (some more successful then others )
