Things might be hotting up between Keanu Taylor and Sharon Mitchell as their affair takes hold, but EastEnders star Danny Walters, who plays lusty Keanu, has admitted the scenes can be tricky to film.
With Sharon’s husband, Phil, away in Spain, the path has been left clear for Sharon and Keanu to get it on.
After weeks of smouldering looks and flirty banter, the pair bonded over their plight to save Sharon’s son, Denny, from the grip of a local gang.
And before you know it, the pair were jumping into bed with each other.
But the actor has told Bang Showbiz that steamy scenes with long-serving Walford actress Letitia Dean aren’t alway easy…
“Doing those sorts of scenes can be awkward and hard, but we’ve had such a fun time. I’ve been lucky to have the opportunity to work with Letitia.
Doing those sorts of scenes can be awkward and hard, but we’ve had such a fun time.
To have that storyline with anyone in the cast… I’m a lucky guy to work with Letitia because she is so experienced, she is such a joy to work with.”
But Letitia isn’t the only co-star Danny has enjoyed working with. He’s also full of praise for Steve McFadden, who plays the legendary Phil Mitchell…
“Steve is great. Every time I work with him I’m learning. I’ve learnt so much just from working with him.
He comes onto the set knowing what the scene requires so you can’t ever question him.”
EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
