Ash Palmisciano’s Emmerdale nightmare

Ash Palmisciano’s Emmerdale nightmare

Ash Palmisciano has been having nightmares about an ‘Emmerdale’ live episode.
The 29-year-old actor – who plays Matty Barton on the ITV soap – dreamt he had to say the opening line in a future live episode, but after missing his cue he had to climb through the window of the programme’s fictional pub, The Woolpack.
He wrote on Twitter: "Had a dream last night we were doing a Live Ep of Emmerdale I had the opening line,all I had to do was walk in the pub door but I missed the que & the guys were waiting in silence,so In panic climbed through the pub window,army crawled behind the bar & popped up!All on camera (sic)"
Ash recently admitted it is important for viewers of the ITV soap – which last aired a live episode in October 2012 to celebrate the show’s 40th birthday – to see the "highs, lows and vulnerability" his character Matty is going through to become himself.
The character – who was previously known as Moira Dingle’s (Natalie J. Robb) daughter Hannah Barton – is to undergo gender reassignment surgery, and Ash is hopeful the audience will learn a lot about his alter-ego in the scenes.
Ash – who is also transgender – said: "It’s extremely important for the audience to see the highs, the lows and the vulnerability it takes to become yourself.
"I hope they learn about his inner courage, and how he pushes himself to face his fears."
