Lewis Butler will be written out of the soap, according to actor Aidan O’Callaghan.
A BBC EastEnders actor has announced his departure from the show. And he claims that his final scenes have already aired, leaving fans devastated.
Lewis Butler will be written out of the soap, according to actor Aidan O’Callaghan. “It’s a huge emotional week in terms of the story,” he said.
“This is Lewis’s final episode, as far as I know. But the door hasn’t been completely shut for me. All I have to do now is wait for my phone to ring.”
He continued: “On the one hand, it’s been extremely rewarding because you get to play so much drama and this really intense arc, but on the other hand, it’s a very difficult arc to carry through in terms of redemption. It’s a dark, intense story.”
Aidan studied pharmacology at Trinity College Dublin and is now a qualified pharmacist away from the Walford-based soap. “I joined a theatre company in secondary school,” he told the Irish Examiner.
We participated in theatre classes. It was a pastime. Cillian Murphy and Graham Norton were the only two people I knew who worked in the industry. I hadn’t considered it.
“I went to pharmacy school.” After that, I pursued a master’s degree at the Royal College of Surgeons. That was the path I was taking. I relocated to London to study pharmacy. “I took up acting again as a hobby and enrolled in some classes.
” And as I was working as a pharmacist and taking classes, I thought to myself, ‘you know, I like this.’ I began the audition process. Keep knocking on those doors, and some opportunities will present themselves.”
