Who did Amy play in Emmerdale?

Born in Blackburn, Amy became a household name when she appeared in ITV soap Emmerdale.

From 2000 to 2005 she played Chloe Atkinson, who immediately landed a job at restaurant Chez Marlon when she first came to the village.

Throughout her time in the soap, Chloe became involved in several torrid relationships.

First she dated Scott Windsor but then slept with their lodger, Syd Woolfe.

After her relationship with Syd, she moved on to Carl King who was already in a relationship with Chastity Dingle.

In a bid to keep hold of Carl, she told him that she was pregnant… but it was a lie.

When Chastity found out, all hell broke loose and the two had a memorable fight, which ended with Chas dunking Chloe’s head in a fountain.

Afterwards, Chloe left the village in disgrace.

What else has Amy been in?

Amy has enjoyed a varied career, and has appeared in all kinds of dramas after her Emmerdale days.

Moving On, Hotel Babylon and The Musketeers have all featured appearances from Amy.

But her biggest post-Emmerdale role was in ITV’s smash hit period drama, Downton Abbey.

Amy played maid Ethel Bryant, a young woman who hated the life of service and always dreamed of something else.

She had an affair with Major Charles Bryant and eventually had a son with him, although he sadly died on the battlefields of World War I.

Amy has also recently starred in series two of ITV’s Liar.
