Over the past few years we have seen a number of British actors and actresses heading over to Hollywood to try to prove themselves among the best that the world has to offer, with quite of few of these stars coming from the British television show Hollyoaks. We have already seen both Nathalie Emmanuel and Roxanne McKee in Game of Thrones, while actress Emma Rigby is also working hard in Hollywood.
With these three already proving that you can make a name for yourself in Hollywood after leaving Hollyoaks, actor Ricky Whittle is the latest actor to follow the trend. Ricky has been working hard to prove himself in Hollywood and now has a role in the new television series The 100. While talking about his new role, Ricky opened up about filming the torture scenes for the show.
Whittle was talking to Collider when he said, "It was tough. It’s torture. It’s brutal. There are some nasty things going on, and these are essentially just kids, but they’re doing it for a purpose. They’re trying to save one of their own. If he had just spoken from the beginning, none of this would have happened."
Meanwhile, Ricky Whittle then went on to try to give fans an idea of the mind-set of his character, admitting that his happy life has just been interrupted in a very big way. Ricky also says that there is more to his character than people first get to see.
Whittle added, "I’m just chilling, relaxing and loving a nice summer, and all of a sudden, these aliens come from outer space and start having sex and killing each other and going crazy. I’m like, 'These guys are crazy. I need to get rid of these boys. They’re nuts.' In my eyes, I’m good people. You thought Bellamy was evil, in the beginning, but there are so many different layers to him. You see Kane get really emotional. There’s so much depth in all of these characters."
The 100 airs on The CW on Wednesday evenings at 9/8c.
