Hollyoaks: David Tag would love to play rival Liam Donovan

David Tag would like to play ‘Hollyoaks’ love rival Liam Donovan.
The soap star – who plays Sylver McQueen on the show – has opened up about the ongoing drama as Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) is sent off the rails by her romance with Liam (Jude Monk McGowan), and admitted he would enjoy the chance to take on a different role.
He said: "I’d like to have a go at playing Liam! It seems like he’s a fun character to play because he’s just so bad, through and through.
"He doesn’t need to think about any consequences, and I’d find it quite fun to act aggressive towards people, even though the audience may not like him as much.
"I think acting wise it would be quite a good challenge."
Sylver has spotted that Liam is a bad influence on Mercedes, as she starts to enjoy wild parties and take drugs with her new fling.
He turns up to take her children – Max and Bobby – away for their safety, and warms their mother to get her act together for their sake.
However, David still hopes the couple can have a happy ending – although he’s not sure it will be a ‘happily ever after’.
He explained: "To a certain extent, yes. I think there will be very happy times to come because I don’t think Sylver will ever give up on Mercedes and he’ll keep striving.
"Similarly, Mercedes also has a lot of love for Sylver, but forever… I’m not sure."
