James Farrar has hinted his 'EastEnders' character Zack Hudson will embark on a relationship with Walford returnee Nancy Carter, and he admitted many of his scenes are with the Carter family
'EastEnders' newcomer James Farrar has hinted Zack Hudson will strike up a relationship with Nancy Carter in the coming months.
The former 'Hollyoaks' star made his debut on the BBC One soap earlier this month as Sharon Mitchell's (Letitia Dean) long-lost brother Zack, and he is set to get close to Maddy Hill's returning character Nancy.
He said: "There's a certain blonde who is returning that I have a feeling there might be some friction with.
"Considering a lot of my scenes are with the Carters, I'm sure you'll be able to guess who that is."
James admitted he would work with Letitia every day if he could, and he will thank the 'EastEnders' legend until his "dying day" for how welcoming she has been since he joined the soap.
He added: "I also just really look forward to working with Tish every day. If I could work with her every day, I would. I don't know how much you know about Tish but she is incredible. I will thank her until my dying day for how she has treated me.
"We text, we call. She was the first person who text me after my first appearance, saying, 'You stole the show, you were a sight for sore eyes.'
"I really look forward to doing more stuff with her."
James recently admitted he "can't wait" to explore the depth to his "unpredictable troublemaker" character.
He said: "I’m thrilled to be joining 'EastEnders'.
"As a born and bred Londoner myself, I can’t wait to bring my experience of a place I love and know to such a well-respected long running show, with such iconic characters.
"Zack certainly has a very complicated past and there is a real depth to him that I can’t wait to explore."
