Emmerdale viewers have been gripped by a blockbuster TV soap whodunnit this week after the murder of Graham Foster.
The ITV show’s first ex-SAS soldier and self-styled James Bond met a grisly end at the hands of one of the villagers.
Actor Andrew Scarborough, who played him for the past two-and-a-half years, claimed murder was the way for Graham to go.
Andrew, 46, said: “Graham’s exit was fantastic. It was the only way he could leave.
“He was very complex and riled a lot of people – sometimes mistakenly. He was misunderstood.
“But he was also quite violent, cheerily violent. So this was a good way to go out.”
Graham rubbed many up the wrong way, and Claire King’s character Kim Tate is one of the prime suspects because of their on-off relationship.
Andrew admitted one of his highlights was working with Claire, who he had a crush on as a teenager.
He said: “I first met her when I was 14. She was the manager of my sister’s first boyfriend’s rock band. She walked in to the room – this amazing 25-year-old rock chick with shoulder pads, because it was the 80s. I remember going wow!
“So it was amazing when I ended up working with her. I told her about the teenage crush in quite crude detail but she liked that.
“The reason Kim is in the frame is jealousy. She thought he was finally finding happiness with someone else. They did love each other.”
Even loveable chef Marlon Dingle is a suspect given Graham and Rhona – mum of his son Leo – were planning to go to France and Marlon was determined to stop them.
Andrew said: “Nobody would want their child going off with an assassin. People believe Graham was going to destroy their lives.”
