New look at Waterloo Road reboot as Adam Thomas poses with co-star and niece Scarlett as filming wraps | The Sun

WATERLOO Road star Adam Thomas shared a first look with co-star and niece Scarlett after filming wrapped in July.

Former Emmerdale actor Adam, 33, returned to the BBC drama as Donte Charles, while his niece Scarlett, 13, joined the programme as his on-screen child Izzy.

Adam shared a clip of the pair on set, with Scarlett dressed in the iconic Waterloo Road school uniform.

He then asked the youngster what's the best thing about working with her uncle.

The pair showed off their quirky handshake and then posed for a photo together in the fictional school car park.

Last month, Adam told fans that filming had finished for the series reboot.

He wrote: "Can’t believe we have finished series 1 already!!

"What a blast it’s been…can not wait for you all to see it!! You're in for a treat. 

"Had the best time on this job so far, and met some amazing people … it genuinely means so much to be back here and reprising the role of Donte Charles once again."

Scarlett is the daughter of Adam's older brother – former Coronation Street actor Ryan – and his ex, fellow Corrie and former Waterloo Road star Tina O'Brien.

Appearing on  Monday's Morning Live back in February, Adam said: "I can't believe I'm saying this, I feel like I'm working for Marvel as I can't say too much about what's going on but what I can tell you is that my little niece Scarlett Thomas is going to be joining the cast of Waterloo Road."

Host Gethin Jones asked how it was going to go working with his niece and Adam replied: "I really don't know, but if you're a fan of the show Donte and Chlo had a baby called Izzy many moons ago and she's now grown up and my little niece gets to play her.

"My brother's daughter gets to play my on-screen daughter."

Co-host Kym Marsh then asked if he had given his niece any tips and Adam replied: "To be fair she doesn't need it."

Scarlett will star alongside fellow newcomers Adam Abbou as Danny Lewis, Priyasasha Kumari as Samia Choudhry, with Noah Valentine joining as Preston Walters.
