Dr Liam Cavanagh (played by Jonny McPherson) first entered Emmerdale back in 2014 as the ITV soap’s new GP. Liam was married to Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) at the time, after the death of his first wife Lara in the years before he debuted on the soap. Lara’s death has remained somewhat of a mystery with Liam rarely discussing his ex-wife but now finds are keen to know more about who the GP was married to.
Emmerdale fans never got to see Liam’s wife Lara on-screen with the character dying in the years before he entered the village.
Liam and Lara’s marriage has rarely been spoken about on the ITV soap.
However, Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles), Liam’s new girlfriend, has become more inquisitive about their marriage.
All Emmerdale viewers know about Lara so far is that she died during her and Liam’s marriage and that she’s the mother to Leanna Cavanagh (Mimi Slinger).
Bernice’s curiosity surrounding Liam’s past could come back to haunt the pair if spoilers for next week’s episodes are anything to go by.
