'Hollyoaks' star Kieron Richardson says he misses Emmet J. Scanlan and feels his departure has left a "big gaping hole" on set
Kieron Richardson misses former 'Hollyoaks' co-star Emmet J. Scanlan.
The 28-year-old actor - who plays Ste Hay in the Channel 4 soap - admits it's "weird" not finding scenes between his character and Emmet's Brendan Brady - who left Hollyoaks village last year - when he flicks through his scripts.
He said: "I can't lie about it - there's a big gaping hole in each day! It's weird to pick up a script and not see a Ste and Brendan scene. Whenever I'm filming and there's a Brendan moment, I think , 'Oh, I wonder if Emmet is watching?'
"I do get a little message off him now and again and I'm proud that he's doing so well.
"It's surreal to see him without his moustache, though!"
Kieron has been involved in numerous dramatic since joining 'Hollyoaks' in 2006, but he says his favourite is the assisted suicide storyline featuring Ste's mum Pauline (Julie Hogarth).
He revealed to Inside Soap magazine: "It was really draining emotionally and I had to push myself into quite a dark place and use stuff I'd gone through in my personal life to get there. It was kind of traumatic and it's disturbing to watch back because I remember how upset I was during those scenes. But I felt really pleased with it all."
