Sally Dexter, who plays Faith Dingle in Emmerdale, has revealed that two restarts were required during the filming of her final scenes.
Fans of Emmerdale were inconsolable as Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter), who had made the decision to end her life while battling a terminal illness, passed away peacefully next to Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley). Sally revealed to thesuns.info that although the heartbreaking scenes were expertly performed, filming Sally’s dying moments in a haunted house didn’t go exactly as planned.
Cain was by Faith’s side as she passed away after the mother-and-son reconciled their tumultuous relationship.
Chas Dingle, Faith’s daughter, played by Lucy Pargeter, was not present.
Fans of Emmerdale will recall that Chas (Michael Wildman) spent the night in a hotel with Al Chapman and returned the next day to find her mother had passed away.
The moment Chas entered the room where Faith was lying to bid her farewell, a heartbreaking scene ensued.
At the Inside Soap Awards, Sally revealed that two times, production had to be stopped due to some unusual activity.
“I’ll tell you an odd thing that happened when Chas first came in and discovered me dead,” Sally said.
She arrived and knocked on the door but was unable to enter.
“She knocked on the door once while we were filming, and there was an answering knock.”
She continued, “Now, we were filming this in a house that was intended to be haunted.
“So, I was dead after this happened twice. I wanted to say, “Come in,” but that would have completely ruined the moment because I was kind of drifting off into some sort of subconsciousness when I heard the answering knock.
Anyhow, after having to stop and start twice, Lucy asked, “Did anybody else hear that?”
“And we all affirmed it. It was truly amazing. Take what you will from that.
In the meantime, Sally, the star of Faith, addressed the Emmerdale cast regarding King Charles’ unexpected video.
At the National Television Awards, he stunned the celebrities by praising the award-winning soap opera in a video.
Sally praised the new King after saying that the message was “wonderful to hear.”
He seems to be doing pretty darn well, according to what she said, and is speaking the right things.
“I’m delighted to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Emmerdale and I’m afraid I’m so old I can remember when it was called Emmerdale farm owned by the Sugdens,” Charles said in the special clip.
The fact that it has since grown to be such a significant British institution and a major British export with hundreds of thousands of fans from Scandinavia to New Zealand is a testament to the dedication of its production team.
Emmerdale is unique because it has stayed true to the goals of its creator, Kevin Laffan, who wanted to show that farming is more than just a job; it’s a way of life.
“Emmerdale continues to show what life is really like for those who work the land and preserve our priceless countryside on a daily basis.”
It also brilliantly emphasizes a point that greatly worries me: the long-term viability of the way we produce our food.
“Therefore, it is only fitting that the National Television Awards recognize the significant impact Emmerdale has had. I also hope that those who are watching will join me in sending warmest congratulations on the show’s 50th anniversary.
“And wishing it an even more prosperous future.”
