So far, Hollyoaks has been a dream come true! When I was a little kid, I put on shows in my front room for my family and ever since I wanted to be an actor. So, for it to be really happening is crazy!
It’s so much fun! They’re both so funny and talented, and make the scenes we do together such a laugh. I’ve learnt so much from them already, and it feels like an honour to act alongside them.
Romeo’s mindset is very much like the actual Romeo, he’s a hopeless romantic. He sees Lily and instantly he falls in love, more so as he gets to know her. The fact that she’s married and he can’t have her, won’t stop him trying. He knows they’re meant for each other.
On Romeo’s surface, there is a cocky, confident young lad full of bravado. No matter what happens, he always knows what to do. However, if you were to delve deeper, you would find a completely different side to him, one that nobody has ever seen before.
In an ideal world, Romeo would knock on James’ door and say, “Hey, by the way, you’re my dad.” However, after experiencing a childhood of hurt and trauma, Romeo has his guard up constantly. He’d love to have a relationship with James, but he’s so scared of being rejected.
He’s had to look after her for most of his life, caring for her whilst she’s been in all kinds of states. It’s been hard for him, but he loves her and he understands it’s his job to look after her. He knows she loves him too, even if she doesn’t show it.
It won't be the first time he’ll have had to deal with the police, so it doesn't faze him. He’s educated himself so that he can be protected by using his knowledge, and beat people who think they’re above him.
He will be furious! He has people to pay back, someone who would cause serious harm if they don't receive their money.
Romeo has the gift of the gab, he’s a natural money maker and could sell ice to an Eskimo. He understands what people want, and he knows how to impress them. The raves are only a start to his money making schemes...
Is this the end of Romeo's raves? Keep watching Hollyoaks all this week at 7pm on E4 to find out!
