Emmerdale star Emile John shares more on Ethan's shock new story

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale actor Emile John has explained a bit more about Ethan Anderson's shocking new storyline on the ITV soap.

Emile recently told Digital Spy exclusively that the previously by-the-book lawyer would go rogue in upcoming episodes, and now further details have started to come out.

Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, he said: "A certain situation is a catalyst for Ethan completely having his life implode on him. In the beginning it's out of necessity, he has to do certain things to get himself out of trouble.

"But I do wonder if he started taking a liking to being a bit more of a bad boy... I'm looking forward to filming that! ...As much as I've loved playing Ethan so far, it's been kind of the same vibe, so I'm looking forward to playing something different.

"As humans we're multi-faceted, so it'd be really nice to play a darker side to Ethan."

But whatever happens, Emile hopes that this storyline doesn't lead to Ethan losing his well-dressed lawyer job, "because I would be sad not having to dress up every day. I really love getting suited and booted with the tie."

On-screen recently, we've seen Ethan share some scenes with Rhona Goskirk, played by Zoe Henry, and he's keen to work more with other actors he hasn't had much to do with so far.

"I'm hoping it will lead to more scenes with Marlon, because I think Mark [Charnock] is an incredible actor. The times I've been on set with him, I've got invaluable advice.

"I'd love to tread the boards with him in a scene. I think I could learn a lot from him. And aside from that, he's just a really lovely person, so I'd love to have a bit more time with him."

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
