Jody Latham says his nasty role in 'EastEnders' has given him a taste to play more villainous characters on TV
Jody Latham loves playing villainous characters.
The 29-year-old actor - who recently had a brief role in 'EastEnders' as bad guy Rob Grayson, leading Whitney (Shona McGarty) into the dangerous world of prostitution - only wants to take on nasty parts because they are the ones who are always remembered.
He said: "I always say it's better to play the bad guy - everyone remembers the bad guy. They get the best endings.
"I had an absolutely great time on 'EastEnders'. It was a breath of fresh air. Everyone was laid back and everybody gets on so well. It's very friendly."
The former 'Shameless' star is hoping he could return to the show follow his exit after just two months as the door has been "left open" because he was not killed off.
He told OK! magazine: "Judging from the way it was left, the door is wide open, so you never know. I would love to come back and cause some trouble."
