Emmerdale star Mike Parr announces new job after moving to America | The Sun

FORMER Ross Barton actor Mike Parr is headed back to where his acting career began.

After a five-year stint in Emmerdale, he will be starring in a new project on stage.

ITV viewers may remember Ross for his many relationships in the Dales, where he settled down in 2013, which include an affair with Debbie Dingle as well as an illicit relationship with her mother Charity – which led to the birth of young Moses.

During his time in the village, he was at the centre of many more dramatic storylines, notably involving a violent robbery at Home Farm and a horrific acid attack which left him badly scarred.

The character left Yorkshire in 2018 for a fresh start in Liverpool alongside Rebecca White and her son Sebastian.

Since then, Michael Parr has kept a low profile although TV fans may struggle to forget his other appearances on the box which include Hollyoaks, Casualty, Inside Men, Good Cop and even medical drama Doctors.

But after gracing the screens of many, Mike has decided it was time for a more drastic change of scenery.

The actor revealed he will be starring in the comedy Rita, Sue & Bob Too, returning to St Helens Theatre Royal in Merseyside.

This will undoubtedly bring back many happy memories for Mike as it's where he performed as part of the Blood Brothers cast in the beginning of his career, in 2005.

Mike has often appeared on stage before moving on to the screens and has many theatre credits to his name.

At the time of his exit in Emmerdale, it was announced that Mike – who holds both US and British nationalities – was ready to take on more projects across the Atlantic.

"Being back here, it really does feel like things have come full circle, it's a wonderful feeling. I can only hope that I can inspire someone the way I was [inspired] all those years ago."
