Who did Louise Marwood play in Emmerdale? Who is Chrissie White?

Louise played a character called Fiona Heath in Emmerdale in 2010 before she was cast as Chrissie in 2014.

Chrissie moved to Home Farm with her dad Lawrence, son Lachlan and fiancé Robert Sugden.

She quickly realised Robert had a life in Emmerdale before meeting her.

Robert went on to have an affair with Aaron Dingle.

However Robert ended up having a one-night stand with Chrissie’s sister, Rebecca, which resulted in Rebecca falling pregnant and giving birth to a son, who she called Sebastian.

What happened to Chrissie White?

Towards the end of 2017 Lawrence made plans to move to Australia with Chrissie, Rebecca, Lachlan and baby Seb.

As they were about to head off, Robert kidnapped Seb while Robert’s sister Victoria acted as a distraction.

Robert took off in his car with Seb and soon Rebecca, Lawrence, Chrissie and Lachlan realised what happened and chased after him.

Chrissie was driving the car and Lachlan, who was struggling after Chrissie convinced Belle to break up with him and had suicidal thoughts, was in the passenger seat.

He grabbed the steering wheel and drove into the path of an oncoming lorry.

Chrissie and Lawrence died in the crash, Rebecca had serious head injuries and Lachlan survived.

However he went on to kill his best friend Gerry and kidnap Rebecca. He is currently in prison.

Coronation Street usually airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV.
