Emmerdale star unrecognisable in new role two years after quitting soap

EMMERDALE star Ryan Hawley looks unrecognisable after returning to television two years after quitting the soap.

The Robert Sugden star left the ITV soap in 2019 hoping to go on to bigger and better roles.

Last night he finally made his comeback with a guest appearance in Silent Witness – but many didn't even realise it was him.

He appeared in the two part season finale as Michael Robson.

But viewers took a while to realise who he was owing to his radically different look.

One fan wrote: “Almost didn’t recognise #Emmerdale Robert in tonight’s #SilentWitness!”

A second said: “Robert from #Emmerdale hiding under that beard?”

Another added: “It’s Robert Sugden. How have I only just realised that.”

Meanwhile it was revealed earlier this year that actor Ryan had become a father for the first time.

He welcomed a baby with wife Daisy Prestes de Oliviera.

Actress Isobel Steele spoke about wanting her on-screen brother-in-law to return but doesn’t think it will happen due to the happy edition to his family.

"Me and Danny [Miller] spoke about this the other day, actually,” she told Digital Spy.

“We do miss Ryan a lot. We were really close when we filmed together. 

“When you're filming every day, you become really good friends. 

“We do miss that dynamic and I know that the fans do as well. 

“Hopefully they convince him to come back! He's just had a baby, so I don't know how soon he'd be coming back, so fingers crossed."
