'Hollyoaks' star Jamie Lomas is grateful to have been offered the opportunity to reprise the role of Warren Fox 18 months after viewers were led to believe he had been killed off the Channel 4 soap
Jamie Lomas is "grateful" to have been given the opportunity to reprise his former 'Hollyoaks' role.
The 30-year-old actor - whose character Warren Fox made a shock return to the Channel 4 soap 18 months after viewers were led to believe he was killed off - admitted after having unsuccessfully attempted to break into the Hollywood movie scene, he is pleased to be back on the show.
He explained: "After leaving Hollyoaks I did go over to Hollywood for 10 days and had lots of meetings with management and I'd definitely consider going back.
"But for now, I'm just grateful I've got the work, and I'm really glad to be back."
The 'Hollyoaks' bad boy - who recently announced he is expecting a child with his fiancee, 'Coronation Street' star Kym Marsh - thinks he made the decision to leave the soap at the wrong time, as the recession made it difficult to secure auditions.
Jamie added to the Manchester Evening News: "Every industry has been hit by the recession, and you only have to look at the Hollywood actors coming over here now to do TV work to see how tough it is.
"When I came out of 'Hollyoaks' there was just nothing being made, I literally had 10 auditions in 16 months, whereas normally you'd be having that in two weeks."
