Profile from former official site
Played by Dominic Brunt
A Huge Big Thank you to Paul Berridge who has made various profiles and photos availabe to me. They were previously on his Beckindale site (that is no more). The following is one of those profiles - although the coloured boxes and additional information from 2001 onwards on this page have been added.
Brunt arrived in Emmerdale in early 1997 as Paddy Kirk, to help out Zoë
Tate at the vets surgery.|
He says "Being a vet is something that I'd love to do but I wouldn't have the stomach for it. I sometimes lie in interviews and say that I spent two weeks preparing for the role as Paddy, by working alongside real vets. "
|Dominic has just bought himself a dream home. The house which is located in Yorkshire, was the home to the infamous Cottingley fairies in 1917, when Elsie Wright and Francis Griffiths fooled the nation with photos of cardboard cut-out fairies in the garden of the house, which they claimd were the genuine article. It was the house's historic credentials which attracted Dominic in the first place.|
than Emmerdale he has had parts in: EastEnders, Soldier Soldier, 2.4
Children, The Bill, Morse, a couple of films and lots of adverts. Before
that he was a welder for three and a half years."|
He names his best friends among the cast as, Mark Charnock (Marlon), Lisa Riley (Mandy), Nicky Evans(Roy) and Tim Vincent (Adam)."
|Dominic, a Millwall supporter, has read all the Harry Potter books. He thought they were brilliant! He is also into motorbikes and has a Hayabusa 1300 GSX.|
|Dominic's favourite comedian is Eric Morecambe. He says "I've got a lot of his stuff on video - it makes me laugh, but also makes me sad that he's no longer with us. It's amazing that there was someone like that on this earth."|
|Dominic Brunt says if he got married in real life, he would invite Liam Gallagher to his wedding, because he loves Oasis.|
