Just days later, he was taken away from Emmerdale by staff having arrived on set to discuss his fate.
The 25-year-old, who was said to have gotten “down on his hands and knees to plead for a second chance”, looked weary following talks with bosses as he bundled into the car with a female former colleague.
Execs saw no other option but to terminate Asan‘s contract after he caused shockwaves with his explosive outburst.
Asan was escorted out of the Hilton Hotel in London’s Park LAne by security staff and was fired from his role after an emergency meeting to decide his future.
In a clip of the bust-up, Asan can be heard screaming: “Do you think you are a f***ing big man? I’m going to f***ing kill you.”
According to the Mirror, he then added under his breath: “I’m going to f***ing knife you.”
The young actor’s career is now in tatters as a spokesperson for the show confirmed he had been given the boot.
The Sun previously revealed that the two men fell out over money, with one of Asan’s pals in a financial dispute with Jamie – his former agent.
Since joining Emmerdale, the unidentified actor has befriended Asan, who has learnt of his financial disagreement with Jamie and when the two came face-to-face at the TV Choice Awards he allegedly decided to goad his mate’s former agent.
Our source revealed: “Asan went up to Jamie and started goading him, saying things like, ‘Alright, Jamie big b*****ks’.”
The next minute, the pair had to be pulled apart by fellow stars.

“I am devastated, accept full responsibility for my actions and I am determined to learn from this.”
