The Bartons Back Are Together Once Again

The Bartons are back together once again as former Corrie star Bill Ward joins the Emmerdale cast as James Barton, the brother of Moira’s late husband. This will bring a boost to Emmerdale as Bill Ward is a popular guy and handsome at that. Expect a brand new story line with plenty of twists, surprises and drama as James Barton gets involved with the family once again.

The Bartons

There’s a new Barton in town when Moira receives an unexpected visit from her late husband’s brother James Barton to be played by actor Bill Ward.

Farmer James Barton is a single father to 3 grown up sons. He was John’s older brother, although the pair had a rift that wasn’t healed before John’s untimely death last year.

Bill will start filming in September and will be on screen from late October. Bill has a wealth of television and stage credits to his name and is best known for his role in Coronation Street, Cold Blood and the West End musical Spamalot.

Bill says: “I’m really looking forward to it. The Emmerdale team are a very talented bunch indeed and I’m extremely chuffed to have been asked to join them.”

Kate Oates, Emmerdale series producer says: “I’m delighted to welcome Bill to the show. The Barton family have always been extremely popular with our audience and the arrival of James will be the start of a new era for them.”

Emmerdale is produced by ITV Studios and appears on ITV Monday to Friday at 7pm with an extra episode at 8pm every Thursday.

Bill Ward is happy to be on the Emmerdale team and is looking forward to the role. The personality he is characterizing, James Ward, will satisfy many Emmerdale fans and perhaps bring in some new ones. I’m just imaging the story line that will develop, but it could go in any direction.  I’ll have to watch to see. How about you?
