James Gaddas has promised a "huge showdown" for his character on ‘Hollyoaks’.
The 60-year-old actor – who plays Cormac Ranger in the Channel 4 soap – is set to go head to head with Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood) and Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas), but has hinted it could be the end of his character, as he admitted there were some "dramatic aftermaths" in store for the trio.
Of the upcoming scenes, he teased: "There is a huge showdown and the consequences could be huge. He’s not in a good way – I actually can’t say what goes on past this but we can see that the stakes are high and what happens beyond that, there will be dramatic aftermaths and a lot to deal with. As for Cormac’s fate, that’s in the hands of the writers who will decide what is right for this particular story."
And James admits it was tough filming a socially distanced fight, owing to the coronavirus pandemic, but praised his fellow actors for guiding him through it.
Speaking to the Metro newspaper, he added: "For a start, it is the first socially distanced fight I’ve ever taken part in. Everything on that set is so careful – the way they shoot is run has one way systems and it works to keep us all in health but it’s a challenge for directors. It was fascinating how they pull it off – Richard and Jamie took a large role in explaining to me, as I say, it was great to have their input as they’re more used to it. It was great to film as an actor, really collaborative. Jamie is a scary man and yet a teddy bear when the camera stops rolling. He’s so good."
