Emmerdale fans recognise Ellis Chapman's dad Al

Michael has appeared in many TV shows and films

Emmerdale fans have recognised Ellis's dad, Al Chapman, who made his first appearance last night.

In Tuesday's episodes of Emmerdale (August 13 2019) Ellis went to meet a potential investor for his and Billy's personal training business.

However, Ellis got a huge shock when his dad Al, played by Michael Wildman, turned up.

Ellis returned home to April's party but Al had followed him and wanted to talk to his son properly.

It was clear that Ellis didn't think much of his dad and that Al hadn't been in contact with him in a year.

However, viewers were too busy trying to figure out where they had seen Al before.

I swear Ellis's dad has been on something else, but I can't picture it.

So what has Michael Wildman acted in before?

Michael appeared in the Harry Potter film series as Magorian, leader of the centaurs.

He has also made appearances in Casualty, Peep Show, Family Affairs, Primeval, Silent Witness and Midsomer Murders.

More recently, Michael appeared in Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One alongside his on-screen Emmerdale son Asan N'jie.
