Emmerdale Heartthrob Faces a Deluge of Naughty Messages from Fans
Lewis Cope, the dashing actor known for his role in the popular ITV soap Emmerdale, is finding himself inundated with steamy messages from enthusiastic fans.
Since joining the cast as Nicky Milligan last year, Lewis has become a pin-up sensation, but some admirers are taking their affection to another level.
Unconventional Fan Interactions
Sharing his experiences with the Daily Star, Lewis mentioned that he receives a substantial number of messages from fans on social media, particularly on Instagram. However, the content of these messages often leaves him taken aback.
He noted that some messages and pictures are quite different from what one would typically expect, even going so far as to say, “They’re not things I’d show my mum.”
These messages range from topless photos to unconventional proposals like, “Will you marry me?” Despite the unexpected nature of these messages, Lewis doesn’t view them as genuine marriage proposals.
Lewis’s Relationship Status and Outlook
Lewis clarified that he’s not actively seeking admirers because he’s happily in a relationship with his girlfriend, Rachel Maya Lopez. However, he maintains a good-natured attitude toward the flirty messages, finding them amusing rather than irritating. He expressed, “It’s funny. I don’t mind.
I don’t find it irritating or anything like that, I’m not easily embarrassed. But I don’t reply to any of them.”
Fans in Real Life
Interestingly, when fans encounter Lewis in real life, their interactions are less saucy. Lewis shared his appreciation for fans who recognize him and approach him for photos, emphasizing how surprised and pleased he is when people call out his name in public.
He values the support of viewers who watch the show and genuinely enjoys these encounters.
On-Screen Relationships and Bonds
Lewis recently discussed his off-screen bond with Rosie Bentham, who plays Gabby Thomas, his on-screen ex-fiancée.
He reflected on the storyline in which Nicky tricked Gabby into marrying him upon arriving in the village, eventually revealing his true feelings and the fact that he had a boyfriend all along.
Building Friendships Behind the Scenes
When asked about his on-set relationships, Lewis mentioned a particularly close connection with Rosie Bentham, stemming from their extensive on-screen collaboration.
Despite the challenges their characters face, Lewis remains optimistic about the possibility of Nicky and Gabby becoming friends, believing that circumstances and manipulation have hindered their relationship.
On-Screen Family Bonds
Lewis also spoke highly of his on-screen dad, William Ash, who portrays Caleb Milligan.
He described Ash as “super helpful and absolutely brilliant,” highlighting the positive camaraderie within the Emmerdale cast.
