Former Hollyoaks stars Claire Cooper and her boyfriend turned fiancé Emmett Scanlan have launched their new American TV show together.

The lovely couple, who got engaged last Christmas, appeared on the red carpet premiere on 1st April this year. The love-duo happily posed with each other to celebrate the start of their new show in NBC “A.D. The Bible Continues”.

Actress Claire Cooper looked absolutely stunning in her new avatar. Unlike her loud-mouthed character Jacqui McQueen, who is known for her heavy make-up and high ponytail with huge hoop earrings, Cooper rocked the red carpet with more elegance and beauty. She looked fabulous in a strapless black jumpsuit which she accessorized with a gold statement necklace. The 34-year-old, who rose to fame in the British soap, looked glamorous at the premiere of her new American TV show ‘A.D. The Bible Continues’.

Outgrowing her Hollyoaks alter-ego, Cooper tied back her hair in elegant fashion and wore minimum make-up to keep her look natural. Adding extra glamour to her feature, she wore a simple waist belt. Less make-up and a sophisticated sense of style made her look simply beautiful.  

The hot actress was accompanied by her lover cum fiancé Emmett Scanlan, who will be appearing in the show alongside the beauty. The couple plays characters Herodias and Saul in the new series. The show follows on from popular US show The Bible and is set in the aftermath of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Emmett looked smart and handsome in a blue suit where he flaunted his over-grown beard, most probably for the new series.

Emmett shared a picture of himself and Claire from the event on Instagram, writing: "Suited and booted in my favourite city in the world NYC, with a perfect 10 by my side, promoting our new epic show AD, airing this EASTER Sunday on NBC… #BeautyAndTheBeast #Believe".

The couple who met each other at the set of Hollyoaks started dating in 2011. The Irishman, who garnered fame and critical acclaims by playing villain Brendan Brady in the show has also starred in the sci-fi flick “Guardians of the Galaxy” and hit television show ‘The Fall’. The handsome hunk proposed his ladylove on Christmas Eve last year after a long romantic affair.

The handsome Irishman also made his name on the popular soap by playing villain Brendan Brady, and has since gone on to star in the hit television show The Fall.

Emmett and Claire went public with their relationship in May 2011 after meeting on set of the Channel 4 soap, and got engaged on Christmas Eve last year.

After the engagement the actor took to Instagram to share the happy news along with a picture of himself and his fiancé, writing, “There are over a million ways to ask the question, but only one real answer… #WorldsLongestHangoverStartsToday.”

Claire Cooper is an English actress who rose to fame as Jacqui McQueen in the show Hollyoaks has also appeared in several other TV shows like Walking Dead, The Coronation Street and Waterloo Road. She was also a British champion gymnast for 10 years during her high school.

She is an avid animal rights activist and a vegan. She has been very actively advocating animal rights on Twitter and Instagram.

We hope that the lovely couple would create magic in their new show and also give us the good news of their wedding.
