Meet the Barton boys: Emmerdale announce new cast

Wednesday November 6, 2013

The Barton family is expanding. Actors Anthony Quinlan and Joe Gill have been cast in Emmerdale as two new members of the clan, Pete and Finn.

The characters are the sons of single father James Barton (Bill Ward) and brothers of troublemaker Ross (Michael Parr).

"The Barton boys are tremendous: feisty, strong-willed and a lot of fun to work with," actor Bill said of his new co-stars.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed the scenes we've had together thus far and look forward to an awful lot more bad behaviour in the future."

Former Hollyoaks actor Anthony said of his casting, "I'm really excited to be part of Emmerdale as it's an iconic serial drama.

"I'm privileged to be working with such a great cast and crew on a fantastic production."

His co-star Joe added, "I'm very grateful for this opportunity.

"The cast and crew have been class with me so far and the fact I'm able to learn from these experienced professionals everyday is just brilliant.

"I'm hoping that my character can contribute to how amazing the show is doing at the moment."
