Zoe Henry is a British actress, who has had roles in the three main soap operas on British TV, Coronation Street, EastEnders and Emmerdale.


Henry won the Manchester Evening News 'Best Actress in a leading role' title in the Manchester Metropolitan University School of Theatre's production of Pygmalion for Eliza Doolittle in 2002.[1]

Henry's early career began with a small role in the first episode of Cold Feet, as well as playing the character Emma in Grafters. She also starred in Dalziel and Pascoe, before securing a role in as the new vet, Rhona Goskirk in ITV soap Emmerdale. Henry played the character for a month in 2001, before returning for 8 months in 2002. After her departure from Emmerdale, Henry went on to feature in minor roles in dramas, including The Bill, A Touch of Frost, Casualty and Doctors. She landed a leading role, of Beth Caffrey, in the BBC drama Conviction. After this, Henry appeared between March and September 2007 in another ITV soap, Coronation Street. In this she played Casey Carswell, the unhinged and child-abductoring friend of Claire Peacock.

She later went on to appear in EastEnders in 2009 as police officer Detective Constable Deanne Cunningham investigating the discovery of already established character Trina Johnson's decomposed body.

It was announced in early 2010 that Henry would be reprising her role of Rhona Goskirk in Emmerdale. The character returned, and immediately rekindled her relationship with character Marlon Dingle. However, as the character has developed, it was revealed that Rhona will give birth to a child born with Down's syndrome. Henry stated she was really looking forward to this storyline, stating "over the years I worked with adults and children with Down's Syndrome. It was great fun and I'm sure it will help with filming".[2]

Henry married her long-term partner and Emmerdale co-star Jeff Hordley in 2003.[3]
