    Emmerdale’s Anna Nightingale reveals she struggled with panic attacks while filming the soap due to anxieties about balancing work and being a mother


    Anna Nightingale has revealed that she suffered from panic attacks while filming Emmerdale due to her anxieties about balancing work and being a mother. 

    The actress, 30, who plays Andrea Tate on the soap, has one daughter, Autumn, with fiance Darren Dixon and revealed she was expecting another when she was filming her final scenes. 

    She was recently killed off the show during their super soap week, and has said that when she firsts started she struggled with working 60-hour weeks which led to her not seeing her daughter from Sunday to Friday.

    Anna told The Sun about the time when she forgot her lines in a scene with 20 people in which then led to one of her worst attacks. 

    ‘I couldn’t breathe, I didn’t know what I was doing and I couldn’t remember any of my lines. It was like a nightmare because it was so public. 

    ‘It’s a different thing when you suffer anxiety when you’re with your family, but this was in front of people I worked with and I cared about their opinions. I just couldn’t recall the script.’  

    There was added pressure on Anna during these scenes because she wanted to get them right, but also had to be weary of hers and her child’s health.

    She told of when her mental health really started to deteriorate, and that social media had a hand in that.  

    She went on: ‘Then my mental health went. I started to feel lonely, like I was a failure. Then social media reared its head. I had an invitation to join a Facebook group called Everything Wrong With Anna Nightingale’s Face.’ 

    Recently, Emmerdale has reportedly seen two cast members fall out with one another while filming scenes. 

    A source has told the publication that Matthew Wolfenden and Isabel Hodgins locked horns when they were shooting a huge stunt scene. 

    Anna said of this that there is a lot of pressure on you when filming scenes of this sort and that people are emotional because of their hard work. 

    She then went onto say that her strong work ethic comes from her mother being her role model. 

    Anna wanted the same for her own daughter, and attributes her hard working spirit to setting an example for her young one. 

    She revealed that she now wants to explore different career paths, and that Emmerdale has given her the confidence to this. 

    She told the publication that she would ‘love’ to start writing and getting ideas out there.
