'Emmerdale' Dominic Power: 'Cameron is imploding'

By
Emmerdale star Dominic Power has admitted that his character Cameron Murray is being "completely irrational" as he decides to have an affair with Chas Dingle.

Cameron and Chas (Lucy Pargeter) are about to embark on a secret romance which has been tipped to last for some time. Their antics could eventually tear the Dingles apart as Cameron is already in a serious relationship with Chas's niece Debbie (Charley Webb).

Power told Lorraine today (April 12): "[Cameron's] not thinking! The last five months for the character have been extremely difficult, with Debbie and Andy having a saviour sibling, the way they went about having a saviour sibling behind Cameron's back, and he's come to very close blows with Andy since then.

"We've been waiting for Cameron to explode or implode, and I think this is how it's happening now. I think he's acting completely irrationally, and I think his initial attraction to Chas came when he ended up accidentally staying at the pub.

"He was just in a friendly environment for the first time in a long time, and I think that's when he first started to have feelings for her."

Asked about the long-term implications of the plot, he replied: "As you know, in soap we get our scripts once a fortnight and we genuinely don't know what's coming. I don't think the affair is going to end any time soon, but when it does, I think it's going to be a case of fireworks."

Power said that he feels fortunate to be at the centre of storylines with the Dingle clan.

He explained: "I lucked out really, because I joined and the character was with Debbie Dingle, so I was immediately in the middle of the show - because obviously the Dingles are Emmerdale.

"So it's been brilliant. I've had loads of really good storylines so far, and they're just getting better and better."

Emmerdale airs weeknights on ITV1.
