James Sutton has revealed he is to bow out of ITV soap Emmerdale later this year. The actor plays mechanic Ryan Lamb in the Yorkshire soap and joined the cast in 2009. Sutton is the latest high profile actor to announce his departure from Emmerdale – over the past year several actors have left the series such as Amanda Donohoe who played Natasha Wylde.
“I’ve massively enjoyed the last two years playing Ryan and been blessed to have worked with a group of such talented and supportive actors. I feel that Ryan’s storylines have drawn to a natural conclusion and, although I’ll be sad to say goodbye, I’m excited about what the future holds. Having trained in theatre I’m looking forward to getting back to my roots and exploring new opportunities” – James Sutton on the official Emmerdale website
The actor will bow out of Emmerdale later this year as will co-star Kim Thomson who plays Faye Lamb. Prior to joining Emmerdale Sutton was best known for his role of gay teenager John Paul McQueen in Hollyoaks. His portrayal of John Paul won him legions of fans and much critical acclaim.
