Louisa Clein, who has played Emmerdale’s Maya Stepney since last year, hit out in view of her 3,759 Instagram followers this afternoon. The actress appeared to be travelling home after a day of filming on the ITV set, when a fellow passenger left her urging him to “shut the f*** up”. The 40-year-old spoke out in a story on the picture-sharing app after returning to work this week. She slammed the traveller in four separate posts, revealing her frustration as she seemingly headed south for the weekend.
Louisa started: “I am not on the quiet carriage but please can the man in front shut the f*** up.”
She included a gif of Leonardo DiCaprio shouting “shut up” with her upload, before continuing.
The star went on: “I literally know all about his whole life. And you know what… it’s boring.”
It came just hours after she admitted she was “nervous” while again appearing to share a post of her train view.
“That IS locked right? #nervous,” she asked, before being inundated with comments.
“We’ve all been there,” one user replied, with many believing she was in a toilet cubicle.
Two other added: “I wouldn’t take a chance,” and: “Well if not, you might be about to be unveiled like a prize on the Generation Game.”
It has been a busy week for Louisa, who enjoyed a night out away from Emmerdale with Ash Palmisciano, who plays Matty Barton.
“Such a brilliant night at @rockyhorrorofficial at Manchester opera house with @ash.p.x We danced the night away…” she said.
The duo were seen beaming away in a cheeky selfie while holding a programme for the musical.
Louisa spoke of “sad farewells” on her first day back shooting as Maya on Monday, with a gloomy view of a train station.
She added: “And it’s back to reality. Early starts, dark mornings and sad farewells… but also to still twinkling lights, massively exciting important stories to tell and who knows what else.
“Hello to 2019!!! Hope everyone has great Monday! #commutetoleeds #kingscross #emmerdale #monday #backtoschool.”
Her alter ego’s storyline is currently focusing on teenager Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) who is desperately in love with her – a schoolteacher – despite her being double his age.
But it appears to viewers she will not stop at anything to get what she wants.
Christmas Day even saw the pair sharing a steamy kiss at Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) and Jessie Grant’s (Sandra Marvin) wedding, but they were interrupted.
Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
