Emmerdale star reveals struggle to film stunts while pregnant
Emmerdale star Anna Nightingale has revealed that she threw herself into as many stunts as she could during the huge week of danger in the soap.
The actress, who is pregnant, has explained that care had to be taken during the intense scenes as Andrea is central to them.
But she was thrilled to be a part of the experience.
She enthused to Metro.co.uk: ‘So obviously being pregnant I had to listen to my body, doctors, and the experts on what it was considered most safe to be a part of.
‘Myself during non-pregnant times would dive into opportunities like this with full commitment but I took it day by day and consulted with those around me to make sure I could safely undertake the parts that I could in the story.
‘We’ve been working with an incredible stunt team and I built a really amazing friendship with the incredible stunt performer who was taking lead on the parts I couldn’t.
‘I’ll forever be grateful to her for not only her work but also for looking after me and teaching me so much. Thank you, Belinda.’
Describing the atmosphere and the filming experience overall, Anna was full of priase for the team and clearly loved every second.
She shared: ‘It’s been an incredible experience, I feel really fortunate to be a part of such an epic level of production. These weeks are mega and it’s everything you hope for as an actor. There are special effects, different locations, and gadgets that my inner geek gets giddy about.
‘When you initially read the scripts it blows your mind to comprehend how it will all come together. There are some amazing people involved in all departments and everyone works so hard together to deliver the absolute best they can, it’s a huge collaborative team effort.
‘The atmosphere has been electric, there’s something about travelling to different places and locations all set up for special episodes that raises everyone’s energy and adrenaline levels.
‘Even at those times when you’re getting tired, there’s a challenge or something really exciting around the corner that motivates you to carry on and do the best you can for yourself and the group.
‘When there are ‘dangerous’ stunts or special effects the team spirit is high and keeping everyone safe whilst doing the story justice is at the forefront of everyone’s minds.’
