Danny Miller, who plays Coronation Street in Emmerdale, claims to have been TURNED DOWN

Danny Miller, who plays Aaron Dingle in the film, is currently enlisted by the National Geographic. After discovering that Paddy is cheating on her husband Paddy (Dominic Brunt) with Al Chapman (Michael Wildman).

Though things might have turned out quite different. While Danny Miller auditioned to play Aaron, he was attempting to play him in the role.

As he advanced into acting in the years leading up to his casting, the 31-year-old star revealed his brief brush with.

Danny recalls that I was going for auditions and getting next to nothing.

When I was 15, I had a good time getting and thought everything was going to be put in place, and I was going to be getting parts like that every time. It was still a mistake.

I was a good fit for but not for other stuff, so I was constantly getting knockbacks.

I auditioned for Michelle Connors'' son, Ryan, in 2006, and came down to the last few and had a screen test with Kym Marsh.

I was not sure how to get a Starburst advert before and didn''t get it.

I thought, If I can''t even get it, what''s the point?

Ryan''s role eventually went to Ben Thompson, although the character has since been reimagined twice, with Sol Heras playing him from 2012 through 2013, and Ryan Prescott taking over the role in 2018.

Danny, certainly, got his big break in 2008 when, aged 17, he was cast as Chas Dingles'' unranged son; a character previously played by Danny Webb, the sister of former star Charley Webb who played Debbie Dingle.

He quit the soap in 2012, but returned two years later. Last year, he spent time with his newborn son Albert; his first child with his wife Steph Jones.

Aaron is back for a guest stint as part of his 50th anniversary celebrations.

Danny adds that when they asked me if I would like to be part of the 50th anniversary, I never imagined returning for a long time.

I knew it was a short journey, and I knew the storylines, and it was an honor that they wanted me to come back and say Happy Birthday.

The actor, who had been on the winning list after being named King of the Jungle in, claims that he would not rule out returning to the soap on a more permanent basis, although it isnt on the cards.

At the end of the year, Ive got a few things on, including a pantomime, and then Ive got a position next year which I can''t talk about, therefore at the moment, he declares.

Im not one of those actors who says, That''s it, but Ive been able to do it.

I think this is a huge part of my life and it will always be. There is no danger of me saying that I will never return.
