Kevin Mathurin, a star of Emmerdale, paid homage to Eddie Osei after learning of his abrupt and unexpected departure from the program.
As fans are aware, Eddie played newcomer Victor, the father of vicar Charles Anderson, who had just recently been introduced.
After a shocking narrative turn revealed that Victor’s imprisonment had been caused by Charles’ failure to give him an alibi years ago, he was freed from prison.
To Charles’ dismay, who was sure that his father hadn’t changed at all, the convicted felon, who was battling a brain aneurysm, was desperate to win back Claudette’s (Flo Wilson) devotion.
But on Tuesday, August 29, events took a startling turn when Manpreet Sharma’s (Rebecca Sarker) jewelry, which Rishi Sharma (Bhasker Patel) had gifted to her, ended up in Victor’s hands.
Victor fled quickly after being horrified by what was happening; Charles subsequently discovered him at St. Mary’s church. But a second jolt made it clear that the figure had passed away.
A heartbroken Claudette cried in Charles’ arms as she lamented the loss of her adored husband, “Not my Victor!”
After the aforementioned scenes, Kevin, who has portrayed Charles on Victor for over three years, posted on social media to say goodbye to Eddie, the show’s star.
He stated on Instagram, “Last night saw the conclusion of Victor performed by the amazing spirit that is Eddie Osei.”
Thank you very much, Eddie, for making the set such a happy place. I’ll never forget how much you made me laugh by portraying Victor as such a scheming character.
You are a fantastic person, and The Andersons will miss you very much.
Quick to post comments, fans wrote things like, “Ahhhhhhh gonna miss another fantastic actor.
Another said, “Last night crushed my heart.” I felt it was fantastic to include Charles’s father. He had so many opportunities.
Wednesday, August 30 at 7:30 p.m. on ITV1 and ITVX, Emmerdale resumes.
