When vet Vanessa heads to Hotten for a night on the tiles she’s delighted to attract the attention of a handsome young gentleman. She’s kept us guessing about which way she swings after her infatuation with bezzie mate Rhona, but she shows no hesitation in taking this fella home with her.
The mood is shattered though when her willing and very fresh-faced date Kirin (played by Adam Fielding) admits he’s only seventeen. Shocked at his age but also staggered he’s Rakesh’s young son, suddenly it is all too close to home for Vanessa. But will Vanessa’s heart start to rule her head where Kirin is concerned?
Actor Adam Fielding said of the new role “I am thrilled to be joining Emmerdale as Kirin. He’s only seventeen but he’s a cool and confident guy and isn’t going to let his age stop him where Vanessa is concerned.”
Adam will first appear in Emmerdale from the 21st August as a regular character.
