Wallis Day has admitted that while she misses her former 'Hollyoaks' stars she is pleased she quit her role as Holly Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap
Wallis Day "misses" her former 'Hollyoaks' co-stars but is pleased she left the show.
The 20-year-old beauty quit her role as Holly Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap last year and while she admitted it was disappointing to depart the programme, she insists her exit came at the "perfect time" in her career.
Speaking at the DISARONNO wears VERSACE launch party at One Mayfair in central London last night (30.09.14), she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It was sad to leave but at the end of the day I knew that I had to make it as a career choice.
"I'm not dissing soaps because they're fantastic but I never wanted to be in a soap forever.
"At 'Hollyoaks' because they're so nice I felt so comfortable I could've just done that for years. So I felt like last year was probably the perfect time.
"I wanted to keep the ball rolling, I wanted to travel and do all the things I've done really. So I don't regret leaving but of course I miss them.
"I've been travelling and everything since. It literally hasn't stopped."
Wallis has landed a role in forthcoming film 'The Boy with the Thorn in His Side' and admits she is particularly looking forward to filming some of the upcoming scenes in Liverpool, where 'Hollyoaks' is shot, because she is going to use her spare time to meet up with her former co-stars.
She added: "We're filming some of the scenes for my new film in Liverpool soon and I'm going to go up and spend time with my old directors and the cast. I can't wait to see them all again.
"I'm so excited for it. I'm going to see the lovely Step and some of my other friends from the cast. Hopefully we're going to have a good time.
"It'll be something like a Hollyoaks-style reunion party, yeah."
