Why did Louise Marwood quit Emmerdale?

Louise began playing Chrissie White on Emmerdale in 2014, but in 2018 she made a shocking exit after her character was killed off in a huge car crash.

Speaking about her departure from the show, Louise explained that she decided to leave because her life was in London, while filming for Emmerdale takes place in West Yorkshire.

She said: “It was the right time to leave, as three years is a good stint to do.

"It's very tempting to stay, but my life is in London, so it was time to go. It's a hell of a gamble to take as you never know what is around the corner, but that quite excites me."

Louise also revealed that her exit from Emmerdale upset her, saying: “I am very sad actually because we have become really close.

"Myself, Ryan Hawley, Tom Atkinson and John Bowe all came into the show at the same time. And it feels like Emily Head has been here all the time too, as we've become so close.

"Obviously we'll stay friends forever, but I'm not going to see them every day, so that will take a while to sink in.”
