NAME: Josh Stevenson
FAMILY: Georgia Stevenson (Mother), Tom Clarkson (Father)
ARRIVED AT WATERLOO ROAD: Series 5, Episode 1
PORTRAYED BY: William Rush
Josh is a fairly average lad. He grew up with his mother Georgia and their status as a single-parent family has made Josh fiercely defensive of her, perhaps rendering him a little over-sensitive to ridicule.
Josh rejects more macho pursuits like sport and football in favour of music and is a capable, if not utterly dedicated, student. He carries a secret chip on his shoulder and can't help but feel resentful towards the father he believes abandoned Georgia when he found out she was pregnant. But he is about to discover that his absent father is closer to home than he thinks.
