Bill Ward

Bill Ward can currently be seen playing Baltus van Tassel in the UK tour of SLEEPY HOLLOW. 

Bill is however best known for his work on two of the UK’s leading soaps. Most recently he spent three years on EMMERDALE playing the well meaning but pretty hopeless farmer James Barton. Previously he took the role of the rather nasty builder Charlie Stubbs in CORONATION STREET also for three years for which he won many awards. 

Other recent credits include Channel 4’s BEFORE WE DIE and Netflix’s AFTERLIFE.
