Where are all of the old favorites from the Call The Midwife cast?

Emerald left Call The Midwife after series six and has been in demand ever since.

Her starring role as Camilla Parker Bowles in The Crown brought her worldwide fame.

But 35-year-old Emerald was also busy behind the camera.

In 2018 she wrote the second series of the BBC thriller Killing Eve and just last week received an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Promising Young Woman.

Elsewhere, she gave birth to a son in 2019 and announced at the Oscars that she was pregnant with her second child.

Comedian Miranda became a fan favorite with her first serious acting role in Call The Midwife.

When she left after the fourth series, she returned to her comedic roots with Miranda touring and TV specials: Morecambe & Wise and me, Comic Relief, and Miranda’s games with showbiz names.

She also wrote a children’s book in 2017.

Despite being a popular character in Call The Midwife from series six through nine, Jennifer decided to call it a day in 2020.

And since the pandemic, things have been quiet on the Kirby front. However, her career on stage and her appearance on Call The Midwife certainly prepare her for a brilliant career.

Pam was another of the original cast and already a familiar face on television thanks to roles in The Darling Buds Of May and Rosemary & Thyme.

But her appearance as the no-nonsense sister Evangelina revived her career.

Seventy-two-year-old Pam has been quiet lately – the last viewers saw of her was the Tolkein movie and the Sky Arts comedy series Urban Myths.
