'Hollyoaks' actor Billy Price will "trust the writers" when it's time for his character Sid Sumner to leave the soap
'Hollyoaks' star Billy Price will "trust the writers" when it's time for him to leave.
The 20-year-old actor – who has played Sid Sumner on the Channel 4 show since 2019 – has opened up after his character made a shocking return on E4 last night (17.03.21) after he was stabbed earlier this month.
He told Digital Spy: "I feel like Sid, in a sense, he's a very relatable character, you know. He's been through quite a lot.
"There will be people who can relate to some things, and people who can relate to others. So, I've put me mark on the show.
"I've done my little bit, so whenever it's time, whenever they want to flick me out, that was my time to go! I trust the writers and they do a great job. Whenever they want me gone, I'll pack me bags and I'll go."
Sid's friends were shocked in the final moments of last night's episode when he revealed himself and that he'd been watching drugs boss Victor (Benjamin O'Mahony) get taken down as part of the soap's County Lines storyline.
There had been some hints Sid wasn't actually dead after the stabbing, and now Billy is excited to delve more into his character after the coronavirus pandemic impacted the story the soap was telling.
He explained: "From the stuff I've been filming now… he's done the deed and tried to take it into his own hands to finish what he started, in a sense, with the County Lines.. Now, we'll go back to him living with a disability. I feel like that will be quite nice.
"With COVID, we kinda rushed the recovery time and what it's actually like to live with a disability and the challenges you face with it. We kinda go back and start again.
"What it's like to live with a disability. What dreams he wants to do next, where his life will go with that. It will be quite nice to explore that bit."
