Matt Di Angelo has revealed he had a "massive argument" with 'EastEnders' boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins over the direction of his character, Dean Wicks
Matt Di Angelo had a "massive argument" with 'EastEnders' boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins over a storyline.
The actor has admitted he clashed with the soap's executive producer due to an undisclosed plot twist involving his character Dean Wicks.
Appearing on Channel 4's 'Sunday Brunch', he explained: "I had a massive argument with my boss when he told me what my character was going to be doing in my storyline. I was just like, 'What? Really?' We had a tiff almost.
"I get on really well him, and then he was like, 'You can do A storylines or B storylines. You can do regular stuff and boring stuff and just go for a pint in The Vic, or you can do what I'm offering you and show people ... make people aware of that situation and go through that. What do you want to do - do you want to get your teeth into it?' "
Matt recently reprised his role as Dean, after taking a six-year absence from Walford, and the actor reveals it wasn't too difficult to slip back into the hairdresser's shoes as he's "not a million miles away from the character".
He explained: "The thing with soap is to shoot so many pages a day, if you were some obscure, completely different character with a crazy accent and mannerisms, to do that 12 hours a day, six days a week, and then get so many pages coming through, I think you'd be shooting yourself in the foot a little bit."
