Emmerdale celeb Emile John reveals Ethan’s conflict over racism case

Emmerdale viewers have been fascinated by the storyline about the outcome of the racist attack on Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle), which has left Ethan Anderson (Emile John) conflicted ever since.

He has been called upon to defend the racist attacker, Jordan (Jack Parr), and he decided to continue with the case for the sake of his career despite deep reservations.

Emile John told Metro.co.uk: “The stakes are extremely high here. He’s worked so hard to climb the ladder in his field, he loves practising law, it means a lot to him. But this particular case, there’s a real push and pull.

“Ethan is a black man, a black lawyer, and I believe Ethan has probably been a target of racism at some point in his life, but the conflict lies in the fact that he has to be able to maintain an air of professionalism and not bring his own bias towards it.”

Emile says that Ethan is aware that there isn’t much support for his stance among fellow villagers.  

“The firm have given him a lot of responsibility and it’s the first time he’s actually representing someone, so the stakes are high here,” Emile says. “He has to be able to conduct himself in a professional manner and if he was to back out it just wouldn’t bode well for his reputation.”

He eventually does decide to withdraw from the case.
