Between 1997 until 2006, Where the Heart Is, a television series based in the fictional Yorkshire community of Skelthwaite, aired.

In the ten seasons of Where the Heart Is, a group of district nurses and their families who live in Skelthwaite were followed.

Several of the cast members have gone on to become well-known TV personalities since the conclusion of the programme, frequently appearing on Emmerdale and Coronation Street throughout the years.

Express.co.uk has tracked out the cast’s current whereabouts.

Lesley Dunlop

In the ITV series, Lesley portrayed Anna Kirkwall, one of the show’s most well-known characters.

After the drama was over, Lesley went on to star in two episodes of Silent Witness and one episode of the BBC soap opera Casualty as Angela Hartshorne.

But Brenda Walker from the ITV soap Emmerdale is perhaps her most notable performance.

Chris Chittell, who plays Eric Pollard in the television series Emmerdale and frequently appeared with him, is Lesley’s husband.

Christian Cooke

Christian, who portrayed the young Luke Kirkwall, has now gone on to appear in other high-profile films in pivotal roles.

He co-starred with Damian Lewis in the 2013 adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, and he also made an appearance in the Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant film Cemetery Junction.

Christian then went on to play the lead in popular TV programmes as The Royal, Doctor Who, Echo Beach, and Doctors.

Sarah Lancashire

Sarah featured as Ruth Goddard in Where The Heart Is from 1997 to 1999 before going on to become a national treasure for her riveting and magnificent performance in Happy Valley.

Over the course of the three seasons of the BBC series, her performance as Catherine Cawood, in which she co-starred with actor James Norton, has received praise.

Sarah has also appeared in films including Yesterday, which imagined a world without The Beatles, The Accident, The Last Tango in Halifax, Kiri, and more television shows.

Between 1987 and 2000, she also played the recurrent roles of Wendy Farmer and Raquel Watts/Wolstenhulme in Coronation Street.

Jason Done

Jason played Stephen Snow in the BBC series between 1999 and 2001. After leaving the show, he was best known for his six-year stint as Tom Clarkson in the school drama Waterloo Road.

Additionally, he has appeared in the dramas Casualty, Four Lives, Time, Suspect, and Vera.

Early in his acting career, Jason appeared in the 1996 film The English Patient with Kristin Scott Thomas, Colin Firth, and Harry Potter actor Ralph Fiennes.

Jessica Baglow

Jessica has portrayed a variety of roles in a wide range of TV and film genres since terminating her tenure as Lucy Snow in 2002.

She played Emma Fairbank in Emmerdale before transitioning to Karla Bentham on Waterloo Road.

Jessica can be recognised by Gentleman Jack viewers as Hemmingway in the show, which also stars Suranne Jones.

Tony Haygarth

Vic Snow, played by Tony, was undoubtedly one of the most identifiable and renowned characters in the entire series.

Before moving on to portray some other beloved characters, he appeared in the show from 1997 to 2002.

Tony appeared in a number of television series, including The Royal, Casualty, New Tricks, Wild At Heart, and others. He also briefly played a villager in Emmerdale.
