Joanna Page is to play a mother in a new sitcom. The 33-year-old actress, best known for playing the lead role in Gavin and Stacey, is to star in The Gates, a sitcom which follows the rivalries of different parents on the school run and has already been praised for her “incredible” performance.
Her co-star Tom Ellis revealed to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: “She is incredible, just such a sweet, kind-hearted woman.
“It’s sort of based on a family and I play the dad.”
While Joanna has landed the role in another sitcom, she has previously revealed she would like to turn her hand to acting in a soap.
The Welsh beauty would be particularly keen on joining her husband James Thornton in Emmerdale, in which he has played farmer John Barton for two years.
She said: “It could be quite good fun because James says it’s just gorgeous filming out in the fields.
“I’d be able to do a good northern accent if I was in Emmerdale.”
Joanna thinks James makes a convincing farmer and loves tuning in to watch his performances.
She added: “I think he was born to play the part of the farmer – he looks amazing and it’s nice having a really young family, who are all really attractive as well.
