In February 2016, Isobel Steele arrived on our screens and has been wowing fans since in her role as headstrong Liv Flaherty.
Isobel has surpassed expectations by playing the first-ever asexual character in a British soap. Over the years, Liv has had her fair share of dramas in being unfairly imprisoned for murder, diagnosed with epilepsy, and dealing with an alcohol addiction. Let''s look back at the amazing young actress...
1.Isobel Steele began acting at the age of 8 years old.
Isobel, a young brother, who has always been her greatest supporter, was born in Salford, Greater Manchester, on the 28 December 2000. However, Isobel admits that her brother prefers playing on his Xbox rather than watching her on a telly!
Isobel isn''t her first acting job, she was only 8-years-old. Between 2008 and 2010, she appeared in a variety of commercials including Park Foods, Iceland, Harveys Furniture, and Bernard Matthews.
Isobel played Barbara in a mini-series, appeared as Chloe in a short film titled, and featured in an episode of a children''s drama.
2.Danny Miller is like her big brother
The cast of these people are often confused as being one happy family, and Isobel is pleased with Danny Miller, who plays her onscreen baby Aaron as a real-life brother.
Danny revealed how to organize her scripts so she can learn her lines quicker and spend time with her backstage before she set out for their scenes.
During a conversation with ITV''s, Isobel said, "We''re really good friends. I think when someone comes into the program and they''re new it''s nice for them to find a mentor," and Danny is excellent throughout his career. He has taught me everything and is such a great friend to me throughout his time - on and off screen. We are literally besties."
3.She''''s a gifted singer and songwriter
Acting is not only Isobel''s only talent, she''s also an amazing singer, who writes her own music and lyrics. The star has released her own EP called ''Sounds from the Lounge''.
During the lockdown, cast members kept fans entertained with live performances from The Woolpack Sessions that showcased their vocal abilities. Isobel''s contribution to the collection was a spine-tingling version of the ABBA classic Winner Takes It All.
Isobel said: "It''s something I have always done." When I first learned about piano, I thought I might as well share them. From the start, Adele loves singing and writes her own songs.
4.She''''s an award winner
During her time at the office, Liv was involved in several issues-led lines, and Isobel''s remarkable, well-designed performance has earned her no less than 12 award nominations.
Within months of her screen debut, the young actor was in the running for Best Newcomer at the 2016 British Soap Awards. Isobel lost out that year, but triumphed in 2018 with a double hammy, claiming the spot for the Best Young Actor at the British Soap Awards and Inside Soap Awards.
5.She holidays with her Emmerdale co-star
Youd think that with their long hours together filming, the actors might take a break from each other when they go home. But Isobel loves spending time with Eden Taylor-Draper, who plays Belle Dingle, so much that they go on holiday together.
The girls enjoyed a European holiday - traveling to Zagreb in Croatia, enjoying the culture of Ljubljana, Slovenia. A few summers back, Isobel and Eden have also been tourist sites in Copenhagen and spent a weekend in Paris, delighting fans with Instagram snaps of their mini-breaks.
And in September 2020, the besties took a tour to Bamburgh, Northumberland, taking the opportunity to sample the stunning scenery and enjoy some delicious G&T''s.

6.She''''s not a fan of the red carpet
While Isobel has revealed that she loves going to big awards with her co-stars, she does not like shivering up and walking the red carpet.
"It''s not my thing at all, I feel more comfortable in joggers," she said of Inside Soap magazine (opens in a new tab): "It''s not my thing at all, but I''m more comfortable in joggers. It''s all good fun though. When you see people at these dos, we all have a good time."
7.She''''s got an eye for photography
Isobel''s Instagram is filled with stunning, stylish photos of every day objects she''s taken and shared with her 125,000 followers.
From loved ones in her life to stunning landscapes and her photographs from her abroad adventures, it seems the young actress has a real interest in knowing what makes a fantastic picture.
