'Hollyoaks' star Emmett Scanlan has revealed his alter-ego Brendan Brady will have an "epic" on-screen exit in March, but won't confirm whether he lives or dies
Emmett Scanlan's 'Hollyoaks' exit will be "epic".
The actor's alter-ego, bad boy Brendan Brady, is set to make his on-screen departure from the Chester-based soap in March, and the 33-year-old Irish star has teased that his character will have an action-packed, nail biting exit.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "It's going to be epic. I was doing some stunts today and I'm looking forward to filming the last bits. I can't wait for everyone to see it. I think it's going to be a good pay-off for the fans."
Emmett - who joined the Channel 4 soap in 2010 - wouldn't reveal whether his character would meet his maker, however, but admits it will be "touch-and-go".
He explained: "I'm not going to tell you whether I live or die because that would ruin it but it's touch-and-go a couple of times. 'Hollyoaks' is balls-out telly. We take risks all the time - we do crazy storylines, major stunts. We don't film soaps like any other soaps.
"With Brendan's exit we're going to do some stuff that's never been done before."
The actor also said that he will shave off Brendan's trademark moustache when he finishes shooting his final scenes, adding: "It's going as soon as I finish filming!"
