Former 'Hollyoaks' actor Kyle Pryor has been standing in as a body double for his former co-stars Jamie Lomas and Adam Woodward on the Channel 4 soap, to ensure his real-life partner Anna Passey can act out some intimate scenes amid the coronavirus pandemic
Kyle Pryor has been standing in as a body double for Jamie Lomas and Adam Woodward on 'Hollyoaks' amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The former 'Oaks' actor – whose character Laurie Shelby was killed off in August 2019 – has returned to the village to take on the role to ensure scenes involving Jamie and Adam's characters, Warren Fox and Brody Hudson respectively, are more intimate alongside Kyle's real-life girlfriend Anna Passey's alter-ego Sienna Blake.
She said: "We've been so lucky to have my real-life other half, Kyle Pryor, come in an act as a double – and luckily, he can get away with doubling for both Jamie and Adam."
Anna admitted Kyle was more than happy to head back to the village for the body double role, because he was able to catch up with old friends.
She added to Inside Soap magazine: "Kyle's very happy to help and because he was in the show before, he was loving being able to have a catch-up with everyone."
Kyle recently joked his day rate as a body double was "probably not as much as it was being an actor on the show", but he insisted any money to share a kiss with Anna was a bonus.
He said: "To be honest, any amount of money to go in and kiss my partner is fine by me, it's an easy day's work.
"It was a very unusual request to go in and do that. I think everyone is having to dodge and move in the current climate.
"It was fantastic to go back. Obviously, I played Laurie on the show prior to that."
