Jamie Lomas is a British actor who is best known for playing Warren Fox on Hollyoaks and Jake Stone on EastEnders.
Along with his work on various British soaps, Lomas has also appeared on shows such as Dream Team, Blue Murder, Heartbeat, and Casualty. From where he was born and raised to being related to another soap star, here are five fast facts about the actor.
Who Is Jamie Lomas?
He was born on April 21 in Manchester, England, where he was also raised. Before becoming an actor, Lomas appeared in shows such as Heartbeat and Casualty.
Prior to being cast as Warren Fox in Hollyoaks in 2006, Lomas appeared as Jeff Durkin in Coronation Street in 2005.

After leaving EastEnders in 2015, Lomas returned to Hollyoaks and has been on-and-off the show for the past three years.
Being a soap star must run in the family, as Lomas’s half-sister, Charley Webb, is also on a soap. Webb was cast as Debbie Dingle in Emmerdale in 2002 and has been on the show ever since. Lomas also walked Webb down the aisle when she married her Emmerdale co-star Matthew Wolfenden in 2018.
