AN episode of Emmerdale will be filmed at a local location.
Character Paddy’s quest to find out the truth will see some of the cast of Emmerdale leave the Dales for special scenes to be filmed in Northern Ireland in the coming weeks.
We have been asked to keep the local location tightly under wraps but it is within our area with extra scenes shot in Belfast.
For fans of the ITV soap, the plotline will centre around Paddy’s search for his father.
When Mandy Dingle returned to Emmerdale she delivered bombshell news which left Chas and Marlon reeling and with a huge moral dilemma. After much soul searching they risked devastating Paddy by revealing his real father could be a wrestler called Bear Wolf.
Bear Wolf is a professional wrestler who, despite his age, is still doing his best to pursue a wrestling career. The role will be played by Joshua Richards whose previous work includes many appearances for the RSC and feature films including Panic Button and Troy.
In light of this news Chas and Marlon will convince Paddy to attend a wrestling convention in order to confront Bear Wolf and find out if he really is Paddy’s dad.
Emmerdale producer Kate Brooks said: “It proves quite the adventure when Paddy and Marlon track Bear down in Belfast as Paddy’s life is turned upside down by boisterous Bear. However, Bear isn’t the only familiar face our villagers find in Belfast…”
Viewers will see Bear Wolf on their screens from mid February.
