“Walter believes he is the ‘man who does no wrong’. He is very strict with his family as he only sees in black and white, and genuinely believes he knows best. Since joining Hollyoaks it’s been a whirlwind my feet have hardly touched the ground… what with family back in London, learning the pace, and meeting lots of new faces.” – Trevor A Toussaint

“Joining Hollyoaks has been a rollercoaster of a ride so far but it’s been a lot of fun and the whole team have been so welcoming. I have a huge respect for Hollyoaks actors and I’m proud and grateful to currently be one. I’m not sure our amazing viewers know how much hard work everyone puts into each and every episode from both actors and the crew. It really is “Acting Athletics” but I love it!” – Imran Adams
