Lyndon Ogbourne's 'brutal' Emmerdale scenes
Emmerdale's Lyndon Ogbourne found it ''brutal'' to film prison scenes where his character Nathan Wylde is wrongly arrested for the murder of his father
Lyndon Ogbourne's has revealed he found filming the scenes where his 'Emmerdale' character is thrown into prison "brutal".
The actor, who plays troublesome farmer Nathan Wylde in the ITV soap, believes the plot - where his character is arrested for the murder of his father Mark Wylde (Maxwell Caulfield), even though his mother Natasha Wylde (Amanda Donohoe) is guilty - show a more emotional side to his character.
Lyndon explained: "There are some really brutal emotional scenes which were exhausting to film. It's the first real time you see a very vulnerable and emotionally shattered Nathan but his time inside just makes him stronger and more determined to make his plans work."
However, Lyndon believes prison will only harden Nathan's evil character.
He told the Daily Record newspaper: "This makes him up his game and a new level of madness and evilness ooze from him."
The actor does get abuse from fans, but he thinks of it as a "reward for doing a good job."
He said: "I get quite a lot of abuse. I went to Glastonbury festival and I was getting a fair amount of abuse, saying I was a nasty b*****d and to leave off my mum. People love to hate Nathan and I love it. He's one of the most evil characters in soapland and it's great to be given the chance to play him."
Despite this, Lyndon has vowed his character is not going anywhere for now.
He added: I'm sure a lot of 'Emmerdale' viewers will be waiting for him to get his comeuppance and when it comes it will be horrific. But he's got a more twisted winding path to beat in the Dales so my excitement for the role and the show is still massive."
