Emmerdale fans saw Nate Robinson (played by Jurell Carter) set foot in the village tonight (Friday, May 3). ITV soap fans last saw Nate chatting up Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) during Emmerdale’s ‘Big Night Out’ episode on Thursday, April 25 and a revelation surrounding the pair is soon to send shockwaves through the village. Here’s why Emmerdale viewers may recognise actor Carter prior to his debut on the ITV soap.
Who plays Nate Robinson on Emmerdale?
Nate on Emmerdale is played by stage and screen actor Jurell Carter.
Emmerdale viewers will see more and more of Nate as he arrives in the village to help out Moira Dingle (Natalie J Robb) on the farm.
Not everyone on the ITV soap will be too pleased with the character’s arrival, however, as what happened between him and Rhona on a night out will be revealed.
Carter’s character is bound to ruffle feathers with Rhona and her partner Pete Barton (Anthony Quinlan).
The ITV soap isn’t the only big role on Carter’s CV, however, as fans will undoubtedly recognise him from some of his previous parts on-screen.
