Lyndon Ogbourne and Oscar Lloyd are both leaving 'Emmerdale'.
The actors - who play screen siblings Nathan Wylde and Will Wylde respectively - are both set to leave the rural ITV1 soap later this year, after deciding not to renew their contracts on the show.
Lyndon, 27, hopes to focus his attention on different projects, but has hinted he believes his alter-ego could be brought back again in the future.
He told dailystar.co.uk: "'Emmerdale' has been such an incredible experience for me and the final act of the Wyldes' drama will be so gripping. I've had great fun and learned so much from creating one of the most love-to-hate 'Emmerdale' characters. But my personal ambition and excitement for future projects has led me to feel this is the right time to leave. But I believe this won't be the last you've seen of devilish Nathan Wylde."
With other Wylde family members Maisie (Alice Coulthard) and Natasha (Amanda Donohoe) also set to bow out from the show over the next few weeks, 13-year-old actor Oscar decided it was also time to leave.
A spokesperson told DigitalSpy the youngster's departure was his own decision and will coincide with his castmates.
