Illegal immigrant plot for 'Emmerdale'

Illegal immigrant plot for 'Emmerdale'
Emmerdale producers have cast a Swedish actress to play a new illegal immigrant character on the soap.

Carolin Stoltz has signed up for the Yorkshire-based drama and is to appear as stowaway Olena, The Sun reports.

It is thought that Olena's first scenes see her arriving in the village after sneaking on to one of the King family's haulage trucks following a business trip in France. She then meets young characters Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) and Will Wylde (Oscar Lloyd), who attempt to hide her away.

An insider said: "Olena's story about why she's run away will be revealed in the next few months. She's very grateful that the children are so kind to her but she's obviously scared and begs them not to tell anyone about her."

Olena's presence is expected to be revealed to the rest of the villagers in the New Year. She is then said to cause a stir when some residents decide to support her and others do not.

Stoltz has previously had minor roles in BBC medical drama Doctors and ITV's Clash Of The Santas. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
