Emmerdale fans might recognise Noah star from Hollywood role with Russell Crowe

Soap fans might know actor Jack Downham as Noah Dingle in Emmerdale – but did you know the young star once had a major Hollywood film role?

In 2010, Jack played a young Robin Hood in the blockbuster film of the same name, with his adult counterpart played by Gladiator star Russell Crowe.

Along with Russell Crowe, the film also brought Jack into contact with other huge icons including The Lord Of The Rings star Cate Blanchett.

Jack looked completely unrecognisable as a young Robin, with the actor recently sharing a number of sweet throwback snaps on his Instagram account.

The photographs showed him attending the film premiere, looking adorable in a pinstripe black suit with long flowing blonde curls.

Captioning the post "Robin Hood – 2010", his fellow Emmerdale co-stars could not help but comment on the sweet snap, with Vanessa Woodfield star Michelle Hardwicke saying: "Oh my god," followed by a series of love hearts.

Sarah Sugden star Katie Hill also added: "Aww baba Jack."

While Robin Hood is Jack's only major film role, the young star has also appeared in hit TV series including Heartbeat in 2009.

In the same year as his Heartbeat appearance, the Emmerdale actor took on his now famous role as Noah Dingle, where his character has become involved in some of the soap's biggest storylines.

This included his recent jail sentence for stalking ex-girlfriend Chloe Harris, and most recently, standing by Amelia after he discovered that she is pregnant.

Amelia and Noah became close after she began visiting him in prison, but viewers are yet to discover if Noah is actually the father of Amelia's baby.

Tonight in Emmerdale though, Kerry looks determined to split the couple up and enlists the help of Noah's mum Charity to help her.

However, when Noah and Amelia suspect that Kerry's olive branch of a job offer might be too good to be true, will Kerry's plan backfire?
