Spoilers: Fiona Wade teases huge Priya fight with Al’s secret woman in Emmerdale
It’s fair to say that Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade) hasn’t had the best of luck in the romance stakes and Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) looks set to be yet another love rat set to break her heart.
However, with fans of Emmerdale set to discover the identity of Al’s mysterious secret love interest this Christmas, Fiona has warned that we might see a tougher and fiercer Priya emerge as she won’t take this lying down.
She told Metro.co.uk: ‘She is definitely not a walkover, she is a strong woman. She is a single working mum who helps run a business. She has been hurt before – she’s been through it, it’s not new to her.
‘She will be heartbroken but we shouldn’t underestimate her. She won’t take anything lying down – you might see a different side to her.
‘You’ll have to wait and see but yeah, I can’t say too much. It’s definitely going to be different and unexpected. Priya is a strong woman now, whatever happens – it will be dramatic.’
Priya sure knows how to pick ‘em and there have certainly been plenty of signs that Al may not be trustworthy – including a warning from the man himself.
So what is it that has kept Priya with him?
Fiona mused: ‘I think at the beginning, Priya hadn’t been with someone for a couple of years. When she met Al, he’s handsome, good looking, powerful – she likes a challenge and he was that in the beginning. She just felt it was what she wanted, whatever his past is, not that she could change him – tame, maybe.
‘They were a good fit and she saw the good in him despite everything he has done before. She was with Rakesh who had also done terrible things – she has this understanding of people doing bad things out of desperation or for other reasons.
‘Al is a strong and powerful man – she fancied him and I think despite everything, she is brave and when she wants something, she goes for it. This is what I want, it’s going to be fun. She is headstrong about what feels right.
‘Her family warning her against her made her want to do it more. They have always told her what she can and shouldn’t do. Their intentions are good but she wants her independence and to have her in mind.’
She added: ‘With work or men, the family are always there. They’re strong and close – she wants to prove she can run a business and have a relationship and be a good mother.’
And while Priya and Al are heading for troubled waters, Priya couldn’t be happier with the scenes she has worked on with co-star Michael.
She enthused: ‘Michael is such a dreamboat to work with – he’s an absolute professional every day. He’s become a great friend. He’s just brilliant, great energy, wonderful actor. I wouldn’t say it lightly.’
