Marc extends contract

Marc Silcock has confirmed that he has extended his contract to remain in the show until spring next year.

The actor, who portrays Jackson Walsh, told Digital Spy that he was pleased to know that he will have spent at least a year in the Yorkshire soap.

“I’ve just been extended, which takes me through until spring next year, which is fantastic,” he said.

He continued: “At the moment, I know I’m there until early next year. I’m there for the first couple of months of 2011 which will be great as it will see me through a year.

“What happens after that is completely up to the bosses but all I know is that.”

Emmerdale‘s executive producer Gavin Blyth praised Silcock and said that it would have been “silly” of the soap to let him go.

“Marc’s performances have been absolutely fantastic,” he said. “So we would be silly not to keep him and enjoy more of Marc and Jackson.”

He added: “We’ve actually just extended his contract a little bit more into 2011 which is great. The chemistry is so good and the story has proved phenomenally successful.

“We’d be daft to break that partnership up.”


  1. That is promising news. Maybe A&J can start to develop a less stressful relationship.

  2. “daft to break that partnership up”
    Too right you would be! Jackson and Aaron are too good together.

  3. Him leaving soon would only mean the end of AarSon. So glad he’s sticking around longer. I don’t know what I’d do without AarSon. I’ve grown so fond of him. Love his character. Marc is doing a great job playing Jackson.

  4. YEAHHHHHHH i’m still wondering whos guna die tho in emmerdale ??? hummmm lolzzz MARC IS FANTASTIC HE CANT LEAVE NOW hes so cool 😛 xxx

  5. I dont think he’ll be the one to get injured, i think’ll be Paddy or Marlon. He’s exteneded his contract which could mean we see Jackson and Aaron have a strong relationship.

  6. Neither Aaron or Jackson die as Marc silcocks contracts has been extended till spring 2011 and Danny miller has said in an interview that the Aaron/Jackson relationship carries on till the back end of next year! 😀

  7. Glad he’s sticking around, too. I’m just concrned the way they are portraying Aaron. Never has acivil word for anyone; sarcastic all the time, and they show absolutely no affection to each other. Other couples on the show do, why not them? He has to lighten up at least part of the time, or elsr Jackson will be history.

    • Oh, I think Aaron’s attachment disorder is played really well by Danny – you see they can never fully trust and this makes for some great writing and performing if a little frustrating for us viewers.
      I always thought Aaron would go and work for Jackson and get away from the manipulating Cain …

      Its such a frustrating show with high quality drama one minute and terrible overacting the next.


  8. Spring 2011 – er thats not that far off, I was more hoping it would be extended by at least another year. Once the Aaron/Jackson story ends, I hit the off button

  9. Boo! We already knew he would be on until spring 2011. This isn’t news. Didn’t this blog post something about his being on until at least Feb/Mar?
