“The thrill of winning never wears off!”
The Dales’ Aaron is adored by hubby Robert, sister Liv and mum Chas – and Danny Miller, who plays the Dingle fella, has proved himself equally popular with Inside Soap readers, as he steps up to collect our very first Soap Superstar award!
This brand-new category is dedicated to the stars you love to love – so we asked you to nominate your favourite soapies and tell us why they’re your top telly talent. Our
Danny garnered comments ranging from, “His portrayal of Aaron has given hope to people facing issues in real life,” to, “He’s the best crier on TV” – and more than a few saying, “He’s fit!” And it’s clear that Danny is thrilled to have been voted to win the prize…
Congratulations on being one of the first winners of our newest award!
Thank you! I saw the category on Twitter, but didn’t know about it before. I find it very overwhelming people have been voting for me. Being lucky enough to win is still a thrill – the novelty never wears off!
It’s not the first award that you’ve won – where have they all ended up?
My mum usually takes them off me! But she’s started slyly giving a few of them back… They never go in a box not to be thought about again, though. I’m really proud of these things.
It’s also not the first time you’ve made it along to the Inside Soap Awards after-party…
There’s nothing I don’t like about the Inside Soap Awards! It’s very relaxing – all people really want is to celebrate the performances and a year of working hard. It’s a good night out, and spirits are lifted here!
Are you missing your former co-star and good mate Adam Thomas (Adam Barton)?
Yeah, there’s no one for me to party with, ha ha! I’ll just have to grab hold of Quinny [Anthony Quinlan, who plays Pete Barton] and persuade him along instead…
What do you reckon has sparked your – and Aaron’s – popularity?
Four or five years ago, when Aaron was embroiled in his really dark years, was a time when mental health wasn’t spoken about as much as it is now. Plus, Aaron coming out was a story ahead of its time. I think that people could relate to that, and it’s something people could rewatch.
Are there any other Emmerdale characters you’d like to play?
Graham Foster. Andrew Scarborough, who plays him, is a magnificent actor and a good lad. He makes it look easy. He’s so good at playing sullen, considering he’s not moody or sullen at all. He has this great laugh, which I love! He’s brilliant.
