Actor Shaun Thomas said he was upset after finding out his character in Emmerdale would be killed off.
Thomas, 20, first appeared as Gerry in January 2017, when his character was introduced as Lachlan's cellmate in a young offenders institute.
Gerry had been lured to the risky building by his best friend Lachlan White (Thomas Atkinson) who had previously confessed to him that he deliberately caused the vehicle crash in which his mother Chrissie White (Louise Marwood) and grandfather Lawrence White (John Bowe) died.
In Thursday night's double episode, viewers saw former convict Gerry die after the roof of the B&B collapsed on top of him.
"I was only meant to do two episodes in the prison with Lachlan and I ended up staying for a year-and-a-half", the actor told RadioTimes.com, "so I got used to being around everybody and making a connection so to be told that was coming to an end was pretty upsetting".
Emmerdale’s Gerry Roberts died in Thursday’s double episode after the B&B ceiling collapsed on him
Pretending he'd asked Gerry to help move some stuff around the Grange while repairs were being done on the unstable structure, Lachlan had murder in mind as he deliberately kicked away the temporary joist holding up the ceiling knowing it would come crashing down on the unlucky teen - silencing him permanently.
Thomas revealed filming the death scene took days to complete.
Nervous Gerry's final lines of dialogue were still full of his trademark comedy quips even as he lay dying, knowing the person he thought of as a brother was about to end his life.
'Lying on that floor for three days was quite uncomfortable, so that alone was a challenge in itself. "Whatever situation he's in, he always finds the chance to make someone laugh or smile". "But working with Tom (Thomas Atkinson, who plays Lachlan) and the director and all of the guys, they were all just brilliant and they made it so comfortable and made it a lot easier for me to do my own thing".
