Ralf Little wants to return to 'The Royle Family' but says writer Craig Cash has found it impossible to re-introduce his character Antony
Ralf Little wants to return to 'The Royle Family'.
The 33-year-old actor last appeared as Jim and Barbara Royle's son Antony in the 2010 Christmas special of the hit BBC sitcom, and he admits he was disappointed when show co-writer Craig Cash told him there was no place for his character in last year's one-off episode, and he doesn't know if he'll be asked back again.
He said: "It's a tricky one as the co-writer, Craig Cash, rings me up every year and says, 'I'm sorry, I can't get you in it.'
"It's simply because my character now has his own wife and kids - and as it's always Christmas specials they might not fit into the storyline."
Ralf has most recently been seen in 'The Cafe', a comedy set in Weston-super-Mare which marked his writing debut alongside Michelle Terry - who played his on-screen ex-girlfriend - and he was overjoyed when Sky 1 recommissioned the programme for a second series.
He said: "Sky are making it their business to fund and back new British comedy and they're not afraid to take a chance on something that might not work.
"Obviously for somebody who's just started writing that's music to my ears, and it was wonderful they recommissioned us. We'll just hope series two goes very well now and we'll go again."
