The Emmerdale actor Michael Wildman has already been cast in a new Netflix drama and has teased fans with the identity of his new character.
After leaving his role as Al Chapman on the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, actor Michael Wildman has shared information about his new character. After spending three years in the Yorkshire Dales, the actor will star in a new Netflix drama.
On Tuesday’s episode of the ITV soap opera, Michael made his final appearance as the cunning Al.
His character was fatally wounded by a bullet after a fight with Cain Dingle (played by Jeff Hordley) and a shotgun.
With the streaming juggernaut, another position has opened up where one has closed.
He declared, “My character is a bit of a wide boy but he is not a villain,” before taking on his new role.
It’s a pretty dark piece, but I’m really looking forward to it, he continued.
I’ll be able to return to my bed every night because the drama is being filmed in London. Additionally, my wife will be able to take on more projects herself,” he added to The Mirror.
In the upcoming drama Baby Reindeer, he will play the bar manager, and his character’s friend will be stalked.
The Watcher, the most watched show on the platform in the UK last month, appears to have served as inspiration for the new plot.
However, the 47-year-old actor will have to wait for the drama roles because he has more pressing matters to take care of first.
My biggest concern right now is picking up the pieces for mom because she’s going to be sobbing uncontrollably, the celebrity joked.
However, I don’t believe that many others will be devastated by Al’s passing.
Al’s killer is still at large, but Cain was apprehended after being discovered at the crime scene.
Michael’s farewell letter to ITV soap opera viewers addressed the contentious nature of his character.
Following his final scenes, Emmerdale shared a video of Michael saying goodbye to his 619,000 Instagram followers.
He declared in the video that Al Chapman should proceed. I’ve relished every second of portraying this cunning, nuanced character.
Before teasing: “Keep watching, there’s more to come,” he said: “Thank you to the 95% of you that absolutely hate him, and the 5% of you that actually love him.”
Fans and members of the actor’s cast flocked to pay tribute to the well-known performer.
Eden Taylor-Draper, the star of the film Belle Dingle, started the tributes with the words “My favorite man” and an emoji of a crying face.
“Adore this utter gent X,” continued Mark Charnock, who this year won a National Television Award.
In response to the countless comments, actor Ash Palmisciano who plays Matty Barton said, “Lovely guy.”
