Trudie Goodwin (born 13 November 1951) is an English actress best known for playing Sergeant June Ackland in the high-profile British television police drama The Bill from 1984 to 2007, and Georgia Sharma in the ITV soap Emmerdale, from 2011 to 2015.
Goodwin had appeared in The Bill since its pilot, "Woodentop", which was part of the storyboard plays for Thames TV in 1983. However, in February 2006, Goodwin announced she would be leaving the serial drama at the end of the year. She also took a sabbatical from the show lasting several months in 2005 in order to pursue other interests which included charity work in Nigeria with CBM. Her last episodes aired in March 2007, making her not only the longest-serving member of The Bill cast in the programme's history, but also a world record-holder as the longest-serving actor to portray a police character. When the show was cancelled in 2010, she told the BBC saying she'd "been in a state of shock all day because [she] honestly thought [it] would go on for forever, and [she was] very very sad that it isn't going to." In a later interview with Angela Griffin, she said she felt ITV bosses "messed about" with the show unnecessarily, causing its cancellation. Goodwin shared her memories of her time on the series in a feature-length edition of The Bill Podcast in 2017.
Goodwin has been married to Kit Jackson since 1979. They have two daughters together; Jessica (born 1982) and Elly Jackson (born 1988), who is lead singer of the British electropop band La Roux.
