Win two tickets to Emmerdale Studio Experience and a ‘meet and greet’ with Tom Lister who played Carl King – This competition is now closed.
On Saturday 30th March, Tom appeared at the Emmerdale Studio Experience and Karen Harper won two tickets to the 5pm tour to meet Tom to grab an autograph and a selfie on the Woolpack set.
Tom Lister joined Emmerdale in February 2004 as the first of the King brothers to appear in the Soap as they take over Tate Haulage. Despite being married, Carl has an eye for the ladies and his list on conquests included Louise Appleton, Chloe Atkinson, DCI Grace Barraclough, Lexi King and Eve Jenson. But his recurring, if somewhat turbulent, romance was with Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter).
Their chemistry was undeniable and Carl even declared his love by wing-walking. However, when Chas discovered Carl was having an affair with Eve Jenson, she proposed to him and started planning their dream wedding – while in reality she was pocketing the money and getting ready to jilt Carl at the alter on Christmas Day in 2010 (in one of the best ever Christmas episodes by Jane Pearson in our opinion).
Then in the first ever live episode to mark Emmerdale’s 40th anniversary, Carl King met a grisly end when he was murdered by the garage. Fans were devastated – and may still be bitter of the end of one of the shows greatest ever characters.
Since his departure from the Dales, actor Tom Lister has been mainly working in musical theatre, most recently earning award nominations for his fantastic role as Julian Marsh in the West end revival of 42nd Street.
Thank you to everyone who entered this competition.
