Emmerdale star Olivia Bromley reveals what’s next for Dawn after she killed DI Malone

Malone had been terrorising Dawn's family for months

Emmerdale star Olivia Bromley has revealed what’s next for Dawn after she killed Detective Inspector Malone.

In last night’s episode (Wednesday, August 20) Harriet and Dawn were left stunned after the vicar attacked Malone, leaving him unconscious.

But the real plot twist came when Malone woke up and attempted to attack the two women. In an attempt to defend them, Dawn grabbed the dodgy copper’s gun and shot him three times, killing him.

Harriet and Dawn managed to get Malone’s body to Harriet’s car before Will came back home. But just how will Dawn cope knowing she’s killed someone?

When asked how it feels to be playing a murderer, Olivia responded saying: “Well it’s been a very intense time at work, that’s for sure! The storyline is such a dark one; it’s been great to have that challenge as an actor, even though it’s difficult to get into that headspace sometimes.

“But it’s self-defence rather that cold-blooded murder. I’m obviously on Dawn’s side. I empathise with her and what she did.”

Speaking about how Dawn will cope with her guilt, Olivia continued: “I don’t think Dawn will cope well at all. She struggles to keep on top of her emotions and be level-headed at the best of times.

“After everything she has worked for to get her life on track, such a dark secret weighing on her conscience could see her spiral into self destruction. She is prone to self loathing and rash decisions.”

Speaking about whether Dawn and Harriet should be worried as DS Wise has his eye on them, she said: “Very worried!

“A senior police officer is missing and Dawn made a formal complaint about him just days earlier.

“It will be very hard for them to prove it was self-defence.”

What will happen next for Dawn and Harriet?

After killing Malone, Harriet told Dawn they needed to get rid of Malone’s body at night.
