The EMMERDALE actor Jeff Hordley has spoken on the departure of his co-star Sally Dexter, stating that his character Cain Dingle is responsible for it.
Since the show’s inception in 2000, Jeff Hordley has been a mainstay as the shady technician Cain Dingle. Although Cain has been the focus of numerous dramatic storylines over the years, ITV fans infrequently get to witness the more vulnerable side of the Dingle favorite. Fans have recently seen Cain struggle to cope with his mother Faith’s (Sally Dexter) cancer diagnosis.
After Faith revealed she was dying, the two, who have never gotten along, appeared to put their differences aside.
The actor who plays the villain, though, addressed up about his co-departure star’s in a recent interview.
The mechanic is responsible for Faith’s departure, he said, hinting to his impending plot.
The exact timing of Faith’s final scenes is unknown, but Emmerdale executives have confirmed that they will take place during the soap’s 50th anniversary special.
“At the beginning of the month, we will be focusing on our Faith storyline, which is a significant storyline for us right now,” executive producer Jane Hudson stated.
My character is connected in the Faith plot, Jeff continued to the Liverpool Echo.
“While I’m personally heartbroken by the passing of the amazing Sally Dexter, it will make for some fantastic future stories.
“That’s all I know, and I look forward to doing that.”
The Faith storyline, which is a major one for us right now, will be the focus at the beginning of the month, according to executive producer Jane Hudson.
The Liverpool Echo quoted Jeff as saying, “My character is involved in the Faith tale.
“I’m personally devastated by the passing of the amazing Sally Dexter, but it will provide us with some fantastic stories in the future.
“I look forward to doing that, and that is all I know,” the speaker said.
With ITV show Lorraine last month, Jeff discussed the departure of his on-screen mother.
He said to the host: “But I’m so sad that Sally Dexter is gone.
“A few actors enter the scene, and it’s impossible to look away from them and what they do.
She’s a wonderful person, and I’m sorry to see her go.
I’m glad I was given the chance to offer viewers a chance to see another side of Cain since these episodes are beautifully written and fantastic to act in.
Sally recently revealed that this would be her final plotline and expressed how saddened she was to be departing the program after five years.
Regarding her departure, she merely stated: “It’s awful.”
“I believe [the plot] is fantastic. I haven’t read the death scenes’ scripts. I just hope it’s as good as it can be.
“This is a larger family story, not just a story about cancer.”
The nice thing about dying, she said to TV Times, “is the thing that happens before it, that thing called life, and all the love that goes with it.”
