Kyle Winchester from Emmerdale has been in the spotlight this week after confessing to killing Al Chapman, but thankfully, the actor’s real life is much calmer.
Fans of Emmerdale have dubbed young Huey Quinn the “best child actor” because of his portrayal of 10-year-old Kyle Winchester.
Kyle admitted to killing Al Chapman by shooting him; as a result, his father Cain, who was defending his young son, was put in jail.
Kyle might have to appear in court and possibly spend time in jail if he confesses to the police because in the UK, 10 is the legal age of criminal responsibility.
In 2013, when Huey was still a baby, the young actor began playing the part.
It was previously portrayed for only one month by infant twins Molly and Isaac Ainsworth, who also achieved fame in Waterloo Road.
What about Huey’s life outside of the soap opera, though? Here, we look.
His first big break came when he appeared in commercials for the department store giant John Lewis in 2017. However, Huey’s mother also uploaded a cute collection of family videos to their YouTube channel, in which Huey can be seen opening presents.
Kyle, who will turn 11 in December, is the same age as Huey at 10 years and 11 months.
After Kyle’s touching confession to his mother Amy, many Emmerdale viewers have praised him as one of the show’s best ever child actors, taking to Twitter to acknowledge his talent.
Huey Quinn, who portrays Kyle, was praised by a viewer as being “the best child actor I’ve seen in a long time.”
Who knew Huey Quinn, the actor from Emmerdale, was such a hidden gem? What a talent, as someone else commented.
Others agreed, exclaiming, “Hopefully this storyline will get Natalie J. Robb and Jeff Hordley some awards next year!” for the young actor. They certainly merit some. Huey Quinn the little, too!
However, Natalie Ann Jamieson, who plays Amy Wyatt, acknowledged in a direct interview with The Mirror that there was “lots of crying” on set during the emotional scenes.
Huey, she admitted, had provided her with script cues all along: “It’s so funny… He would remind me of the lines I had forgotten.
“Why do you know my lines? I would ask. You have enough on your plate already to learn.
We shot it in one day, with just the two of us present on set, the actress continued. It was exhausting because there was a lot of crying.
Huey had a lot to do in that episode, so I was incredibly proud of him.
