Emmerdale’s Adam Thomas on drug plotline
Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas, who plays Adam Barton on the show, has been discussing his role in an upcoming drugs storylines involving his on-screen sister Holly, who’s played by Sophie Powles.
Viewers have seen Holly using drugs over the last few months, and last week, Aaron took care of Holly when she overdosed on cocaine.
Her family are not yet aware of the severity of her drug use, but in future episodes, the family will learn that Holly’s using heroin.
Speaking to What’s On TV magazine, Adam said, “[Adam’s] trying to keep the peace, but it will get to a point where the only option he has will be to tell them [his parents]…
“Holly’s problem is getting serious and there’s no way he’ll be able to cope with it on his own.”
“He’s having to lie to his mum and dad, which he hates. It’s horrible for Adam but good for me.
“I’m enjoying being part of this storyline and getting my teeth into something.
“And it’s going to get a whole lot worse before it starts getting better.”
