I’m very loyal, if I had affords whereas I used to be there I’d say no as EastEnders was my precedence. I had a good time and so they determined they’d cease the character once they did, In equity, I used to be additionally at a spot the place I wasn’t positive how rather more we may get out of Vincent; I all the time consider you must depart a state of affairs earlier than folks want you to. The way in which it was beginning to go for me, I knew it was taking place a highway the place I didn’t know the way rather more we may get. So I assumed possibly it’s for the most effective as effectively.

Within the two years since I left, I did a number of performs that allowed me to shake off Vincent and to discover my id as Richard – then as an actor once more. Felix is way extra humorous than Vincent was.

“When Vincent was bouncing off Kim, she was the joker and he would end the joke by being the straight man. What I like with Felix is that he’s harmful, however he’s so humorous; switching between the 2 feels good. One minute you’ve received folks laughing, and I’ve received that comedian timing from stand-up, however when it’s time to get critical or emotional, I can present Felix as a rounded character. That’s the massive distinction for me as Vincent was fairly a closed ebook.”
