A Q&A with James Sutton of Hollyoaks (Contains spoilers)

Next week on Hollyoaks: In Dublin, Brendan is in turmoil when his ex refuses to let him see his children over Christmas. But as he waves his family off at the coach station, another lost soul, John Paul, is also waving goodbye to a loved one. The pair inevitably gets chatting, but where will it lead?

James Sutton

Who do you play?
John Paul McQueen

How would you describe the character you play?

Are you anything like them in real life?
(see above)

If you could play any other character, who would you choose, and why?

How long have you been in Hollyoaks?
I was here for 3 years and after a break, I have returned - couldn't stay away from the place ;)

What's been your favourite scene to shoot in Hollyoaks?
Probably one of the ones I shot with Emmett in Dublin when I first came back. There's certainly a lot of fun to be had with Brendan and John Paul - tune in!

And your worst?
I once had to dance to a Spice Girls song. It haunts my dreams.

Have you ever given anyone a Hollyoaks calendar as a present?
I have. I'm a cheapskate, but they seemed happy with it.

Do you ever use your job to jump queues for bars, clubs etc?
I do not.

Do you ever get sent any weird fan mail?
I've been sent some pretty explicit letters. Those are always a treat - I couldn't possibly divulge what they said!

What's your favourite joke?
Did you hear about the scarecrow that won the Nobel Peace Prize?
He won it for being out standing in his field...

Who's the worst for forgetting lines?
That would be me. Forgetting them or making them up.

What's the best thing about being in Hollyoaks?
The variety of topics that the show covers, it's great that is reaches so many people.

What's the worst?
Early mornings.

Hollyoaks: weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4,
with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
