I'd never thought Aaron could be gay - he's probably the most unlikely person in the village to be gay. I saw it as a challenge and said yes, but I was still quite anxious about it.

Actor Danny Miller, who plays Aaron Livesy in Emmerdale, will this week come out when his sexuality secret comes to an end.

Miller, who is straight, spoke to People magazine and discussed the moment he found out the direction his character was taking. "The producer called me in to discuss the direction he wanted to take the character,"

"Being a straight actor and having to kiss another lad, I'm not going to lie, I was a bit worried about it, because it's a great test of your acting skills.
"And I wasn't expecting it.

I'd never thought Aaron could be gay - he's probably the most unlikely person in the village to be gay. I saw it as a challenge and said yes, but I was still quite anxious about it."
The audience first saw Aaron attempt to kiss his best friend Adam Barton and be taunted for his actions. Now, he has met someone new, Jackson Walsh, played by ex-Hollyoaks actor Marc Silcock.
The pair met in a gay bar and their relationship is about to grow as they are soon to share a kiss. Talking about the moment the young actor spoke of his fear, "I was nervous, but I'd only done a couple of scenes with Marc before we had to kiss, which I think was better really,"

"It meant I hadn't had a chance to get to know him and become friends with him first. I found it a lot easier not knowing him that well. I think it would have been hard if we'd become mates and then had to kiss."

Miller, had to pull out all the stops as he prepared for his heart wrenching performance this week, when he comes out about his sexuality. Finding himself in the correct emotional state, his thoughts went elsewhere.

"I think about terrible things happening to my family and imagine how I'd feel.

"The sad thoughts got mixed with the words I was saying in the script and then I cried for real. The first couple of times it was hard to switch off straightaway and I carried on crying a little bit after we'd finished the scene. It was emotionally exhausting and it does drain you."

Emmerdale is on ITV1, Mon, Tues, Wed and Fri, 7pm, and Thurs 7pm and 8pm.
