Cameron Moore: Hard not to take abuse personally
Cameron Moore has confessed playing Cameron Campbell in 'Hollyoaks' can be difficult because he sometimes mistakes criticism of his character for criticism of him because they share the same first name
'Hollyoaks' actor Cameron Moore finds it hard not to take abuse about his character personally.
The actor, who plays Cameron Campbell in the Channel 4 soap, admitted it's sometimes difficult playing someone with the same first name as him as it's harder to separate negative comments about his character from comments about him.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he shared: "Yeah that is one thing I would possibly change. When you get a bit of abuse it's hard not to take it as personally when people are actually calling you Cameron."
The soap star claimed he had people shout insults at him in the street after it was revealed his character killed Danny (Stephen Billington) and Sam (Lizzie Roper) Lomax in a hit-and-run accident.
He continued: "Just sometimes when you walk down the street - it was after the Danny and Sam stuff - and they'd be like, 'Murderer! Killer!' And I was like, 'No, no. It's just my job'."
Cameron also confessed to being slightly disappointed that female viewers don't see him as eye candy in the same way as colleague Danny Mac, who plays Dodger savage.
He added: "I don't think they fancy me. They've been telling me at work that they'd like me to be their dad ... Much to my horror. I'll leave that to Danny Mac and I'll just stick to killing people's parents and gangsters."
Meanwhile, Cameron admits he was "absolutely chuffed" to be shortlisted for the best newcomer prize at next week's National Television Awards.
He said: "I'm absolutely chuffed, it was a lovely phone call to get. I'm still enjoying it really and enjoying all the buzz about it now."
