On a video posted on the Hollyoaks website the actor talks about his first days of shooting.

“My first day was really mad, I was cast on Monday and was shooting scenes on Tuesday morning, so I had about five minutes to meet everyone and then we were shooting scenes...there’s no messing around,” said Mr Vye.

His character will get trapped in a a steamy love triangle with his girlfiend Liberty, played by Abi Phillips, and one of the show’s stalwarts Theresa McQueen, played by Jorgie Porter.
