Hollyoaks bosses have revealed who Susie Amy will be playing in the show.
Susie will be playing Luke Morgan’s secret wife, Scarlett, in a storyline that will reunite the actress with her Footballers Wives‘ co-star Gary Lucy. The soap has also announced that Aedan Duckworth has joined the cast as Luke’s estranged son, Oliver.
Unable to cope with Luke’s drinking and fearing for Oliver’s safety, Scarlett disappeared with their son without trace over 8 years ago. Since then, Luke has reunited with his old-flame, Mandy Richardson and they’ve moved back to Hollyoaks, but Mandy is unaware of Scarlett and Oliver’s existence.
Darren Osborne is the only person who knows about them after finding out from Luke during the Hollyoaks High School explosion. Meanwhile, Luke and Mandy’s relationship is finally back on track, with a potential engagement on the horizon, but can Luke track down Scarlett and get a divorce before he becomes a bigamist?
“I started two weeks ago and it was in at the deep end I had to spend my whole second day crying! It has been fantastic working with Gary Lucy and Susie Amy and I am looking forward getting to work with more of the cast and settling in properly next year.” – Aedan Duckworth
Aidan, who has previously starred in The Five for Sky1, was scouted as part of a Lime Picture’s casting initiative.
Scarlett and Oliver can be seen in the soap from next month.
