Some acting gigs are easier than others – and being an antagonist to the love story that is Robert Sugden and Aaron Dingle ranks as one of the more tricky tasks. Dr Alex is currently in a relationship with Aaron and while he is a perfectly decent seeming character by all accounts, there is only one person that most fans want to see Aaron with in Emmerdale.
With Danny Miller explaining that Alex is the opposite of Robert and presents Aaron with an opportunity to try and move on from the destructive nature of his previous relationship, it certainly sounds like they are going to go for it.
Asked whether it was daunting coming between Robron, Steven Flynn, who plays Dr Alex, told Metro.co.uk: ‘Obviously it’s such a popular story. I didn’t know exactly how it was going to go but yeah the story is that he is dead in the middle of this power couple. You’re going to get all sorts of stuff said – it’s been interesting to see how people react to Alex.
‘I was only going to be in for ten episodes and then it got pushed back a bit. I didn’t know where the story was going but it was nice to stick around a little longer.’
However, Danny Miller also pointed out that Aaron’s heart would always sail right back to Robert. He explained: ‘I don’t think he’ll ever stop loving Robert. If you go back to those scenes where they offloaded to each other and Aaron opened up to Robert about his dad and it allowed him to find a new chapter in his life. Regardless of what Robert does, Aaron will always love him.’
Asked who is the better kisser, Danny laughed and coyly replied: ‘Oh I couldn’t tell you that! They’re both so different. They’re both my boys!’
Well, to be fair, both Ryan and Steven were sitting beside him at the time!
