Emmerdale: Mark Charnock talks about working with Amelia
However Mark has revealed when filming the scenes, Amelia, who is 13, made him cry.
When asked if he was impressed with Amelia’s performance and if it’s been lovely working with her, Mark told Entertainment Daily and other media: “We did a scene by Donna’s grave a few weeks ago, that is the scene where Marlon has just found out. She made me cry in the scene.
“At the end of it I just looked at her, she just sat there, she just done yet another brilliant scene and I just went ‘you made my cry. If you’re this good now, how good are you going to be when you’re 20?’
“She’s so modest you know. Her parents have done a great job. She is so down to earth and normal.
Mark added: “She’s just a talented a very young actress. She’s great to work with, she’s always on it. She’s such a professional. I’m very lucky to work with her.”
