Genesis Walker - Storylines


Genesis, normally known as Gennie, made her first appearance in Emmerdale when she was injured when a car, driven by Ross Kirk, knocked her off her moped. She had been on her way to the village to meet her biological father Shadrach Dingle (Andy Devine) for the first time.

After the crash, Gennie became friends with Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt), who was with Ross, when he visited her at the hospital. In late April 2008, Paddy invited her to Eli Dingle’s (Joseph Gilgun) birthday party, and while there, she realises that Shadrach is her father. After initially running out of the house, Gennie and Shadrach talk. He tells how he had come looking for her, following the cot death of his godson Daniel Thomas. Shadrach had planned to leave his wife for Gennie’s mother, Shirley Pascoe, but she died in child birth. Feeling unable to take her home with him, he gave her up for adoption.

Gennie soon became close to her father and the Dingle family, although her half-sister Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) was initially resentful of her presence and the attention she got from Shadrach. Gennie tried proving she was a true Dingle, and finally did so when she stole a client from Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell), making money in the process. She also helped Eli and Sam after they burned down Pollard's factory. After growing close to Eli, they shared a kiss until he told her he was not attracted to her and she insisted she wasn't attracted to him.

Soon, Gennie moved in with the Dingles, something that deeply upset her adoptive mother, Brenda Walker (Lesley Dunlop), who was concerned about Gennie not having a job and her change in character. Chas convinced Brenda that Gennie was working at the vets, and for a short time, she did work there. When going to a call out, she ran over and killed a sheep. She and Eli were arrested for stealing the vet’s drugs, but released when the locum vet, Josh, explained that she was taking the drugs to the farm. After this incident, her mother again tried persuading her to come home, but Gennie refused, saying she felt she fitted in at the Dingles.

In August 2008, Gennie got a job as a machinist at Eric Pollard’s new factory, while Brenda started working for Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) at the village post office/cafe. Gennie was not pleased as it meant Brenda would visit more often. She has, since, become close to many residents and is even learning to tolerate her mother's presence. Gennie became concerned that Brenda was falling for Bob while his wife was away, and helped convince her to start a relationship with Terry Woods. In late autumn 2008, Brenda and Gennie moved into the vacant flat above the post office/cafe.

In November 2008, Gennie joined the church's choir after Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) heard her beautiful singing voice. Gennie was nervous about singing in front of other people, especially when she learned they would be entering a choir competition to help save the church from closure. She could only sing from another room where the choir couldn't see her. Finally, the group decided to have Gennie stand offstage while Val Lambert (Charlie Hardwick) mimed to Gennie's voice, but at the moment of competition, circumstances forced Gennie to take center stage. They won a prize, but afterward, Gennie was still too self-conscious to sing in front of anyone else.

Gennie found out she had feelings for Paddy, and her sister Chastity encouraged her, even though she knew Paddy was more interested in her. Gennie sent him a Valentine, which served only to make him think someone was making fun of him. Soon, Paddy and Chas got together and a hurt Gennie learned what her sister had done.

In March 2009, after Gennie told her nephew Aaron that Bob was borrowing money from a cash and carry to help keep his the business afloat, Aaron, Zak, and Shadrach stole the money to pay for repairs to Debbie's house. Bob's credit line was ruined, as he was suspected of taking the money himself. Bob blamed Brenda for distracting the man the money was stolen from, and they had a bitter quarrel. Gennie soon put the pieces together and begged her family to give the money back. They refused, and Gennie was devastated that even her own father would not support her. Within a few weeks, Gennie managed to patch up her differences with the family.

In spring and summer 2009, Gennie began to develop a crush on Bob, in spite of his marriage to Viv Hope (Deena Payne) (who was then serving a prison sentence) and his working relationship with her mother. Their bond was strengthened as Brenda moved in with Terry while Bob and the twins moved into the flat with Gennie. Bob was shocked to learn of her feelings and Gennie tried to get over him by going out on dates with various men, all of which ended badly. In mid-July, Gennie tried to console Bob as he had erroneously assumed Viv wanted to end their marriage. Bob shared a passionate kiss with Gennie before sleeping together. The awkwardness between them the next day was only compounded when Viv, who had tried to tell Bob of her early release, unexpectedly returned to the village. Gennie and Bob ended their relationship.

Gennie got a job at the Sharma brothers sweet factory. She started seeing Bob's son Jamie (Alex Carter), who also worked at the factory. Gennie and Jamie soon fell in love and in May 2010 they decided to move to Newquay where they had both been offered new jobs. At their leaving party in the Woolpack, Bob tried to say farewell to Gennie and kissed her on the forehead but Jamie saw them and assumed the worst as they had been out of sight from everyone else in the pub. Jamie accused Gennie and Bob of restarting their affair. Viv then found out about their affair when Jamie told her. She threw Bob out. Gennie later found Jamie sitting on the veranda of his camper van. He told her that he still loved her but could not be sure he could trust her or whether there was still a relationship between her and Bob. Eventually Jamie decided that although nothing had happened between them, he could never forget their affair so he left the village and went to Newquay alone, leaving Gennie heartbroken.

Gennie later visited Viv to convince her that nothing had happened between her and Bob and to take Bob back but Viv slapped her and threw her out. Brenda also supported Viv and told Gennie she was disgusted with her behaviour.

In July 2010 Gennie was further devastated when Shadrach died. She felt guilty about the fact that she had never got used to referring to him as "Dad" and only calling him by his name.

In 2011, Gennie is promoted to PA at Sharma Sharma. However, she is later offended when she works out that Jai (Chris Bisson) and Nikhil Sharma (Rik Makarem) only employed her because, she was a person that Jai was most unlikely to sleep with. Despite this, Gennie continues to work there and starts to fall in love with Nikhil and she is later jealous when Nikhil was romancing Chas. After a few weeks, Gennie finally confesses her feelings for him to Chas, which leads to a scuffle. However, Chas comes around and she finshes with Nikhil so that, Gennie can have a chance with him. She finally manages to pluck up the courage to confess her true feelings for Nikhil but he angrily rejects her. Gennie is heartbroken.

Gennie is flattered when local vet Nicky Pritchard asked her out. After a few dates, they start a romance, which initially goes well until Nikhil becomes jealous and realises he loves Gennie. He starts to make accusations about Nicky and they come to blows in The Woolpack with Gennie furiously telling Nikhil to stay away from them. Their relationship comes under further strain when Nikhil spots Nicky with another woman and assumes that he is having an affair. It later transpires that Nicky was trying to get Gennie another job after she has had enough at Sharma Sharma.

After another confrontation, Nikhil declares his love for Gennie and he apologizes for his behaviour. Gennie forgives him and confesses her love for Nikhil. They end up passionately kissing. She later ends her relationship with a furious Nicky, who later leaves the village. With Nicky gone, Gennie and Nikhil start a relationship, despite the disapproval of various village residents. Gennie later discovers that she is 18 weeks pregnant with Nikhil's baby, who has on numerous occasions voiced his dislike of children. She gets increasingly worried about his reaction. After weeks of persuasion from Chas, Gennie decides that she must tell Nikhil the truth but when they sit down to talk he misreads her signals and thinks that she is breaking up with him. To save embarrassment, he ends it first; even though he still loves her. When Nikhil arrives home he explains to Charity why he ended the relationship, and Charity tells Nikhil that Gennie's secretly carrying his baby. The following day he arrives in the office and proposes to Gennie, who accepts still unaware that Nikhil knows that she is pregnant. When they arrive home she tries to tell him about the baby but he tells her he already knows. Gennie believes that he only proposed to her because of the baby and says that she cannot marry him, for this reason. Nikhil soon realises that he must prove that he wants Gennie and the baby so he arrives at her house and plegdes his love for both of them. He proposes for the second time and she accepts.

After performing double bridesmaid duties (for Katie Sugden and Chastity Dingle) in October 2012 Gennie goes into labour at Chas and Dan Spencer's wedding reception and with Nikhil by her side and help from local vet Rhona Goskirk, she delivers a daughter. On 22nd October 2012 Nikil's mother comes to visit her new Granddaughter and they all agree that the baby girl needs a name so decide to call her Molly Sharma.
