Rosie is 19 years old and lives in Nottingham with her mum, Marianne, and siblings Alice, Henry, James.

She has been acting since she was a child and while Emmerdale is her first major credit, she has also played parts in smaller stage productions. She also appeared in one epiosde of CBBC's Crackerjack last year.

While learning to act, she played roles in local productions of Oklahoma, Fiddler on the Roof, Sound of Music and Annie.


Rosie has played a part in Emmerdale since she took over Annelise Manojlovic, who had played Gabby since birth.

The same year she was long-listed for the Best Soap Newcomer award at the TV Choice Awards.

Gabby was a member of The Television Workshop in Nottingham when they were contacted about putting forward students to audition.

The Television Workshop trains youngsters interested in acting for film and TV.

Its other notable alumni include Line of Duty actress Vicky McClure and Skins star Jack O Connell and This Morning’s Alison Hammond.

When Rosie first started acting professionally, her parents would act as her chaperones on set.

Tragically, her father John died suddenly on 6 August 2019 from a pulmonary embolism.

Emmerdale bosses have recently announced that Gabby's new links to the Tate family will spark a huge new storyline this year.

In the coming weeks, Gabby will discover that she's pregnant after a one-night stand with Jamie, which sparks major repercussions at Home Farm.

“The pitter-patter of tiny feet won’t just be knocking on Tracy and Nate’s door.

“We’ve got another new arrival that is set to send shockwaves through the village as Jamie learns he is going to be a father for a second time, after a night with… Gabby.

Emmerdale producer Sophie Roper said: “Gabby is no stranger to life at the big house, but as Kim discovers there is going to be a new heir to the Tate throne, a fight for power up at Home Farm will very quickly ensue.

“But as Gabby finds herself at the centre of a family at war, will she succumb to the manipulations at Home Farm? Or will she end up being the one that pulls the strings?

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7 pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8 pm on Thursdays.
