Emmerdale's Dean Andrews wants to fool fans with villainous character

Share article:

Dean Andrews is proud when "Emmerdale" fans can't separate him from his evil character.

The 55-year-old actor joined the ITV soap earlier this year as villainous Will Taylor - who has been stalking his former wife Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) and remains resentful over her role in sending him to prison - and he admitted he embraces a tough reaction from viewers.

After appearing on "Loose Women" to boos from the audience, he said: "I think we kinda hope that we've made them believe that we're like that...

"Most kinda hard guys or actors, [the character's] usually not like they are in real life.

"If you've made an audience believe that you're not a nice fella and that you could do some damage, you've probably done your job right."

This week on the soap, the storyline - which has also involved the Will's estranged daughter Dawn (Olivia Bromley) as she helps her father with his revenge plot - is set to hit "a crescendo" with a confrontation set between Will and Harriet.

Teasing viewers with what to expect, Dean added: "It kind of comes to a crescendo, all the stuff that Will's been doing. They come face to face in the church, have a bit of a debate about what went off a few years ago. It all gets a bit much for Will, and he pounces, not in a good way."

He said: "To work with those two in my introduction to "Emmerdale" has been a joy, it's been great."
