Actor Charlie Clapham said goodbye to Channel 4 teen soap Hollyoaks earlier this year, in emotional scenes which saw him shed real tears.
After four years playing lead character Freddie Roscoe, he left on a cliff-hanger and now Hollyoaks’ loss is Hollywood’s gain. Charlie swapped his home town of Leicester for Los Angeles, to fulfill his dreams of becoming a movie star.
He’s already partied with Will Smith and Jim Carrey and ignored Russell Brand at the urinals, as he reveals to Brits In The Wood on this week’s podcast. He also explains to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant his secret skill… how to perfectly pierce a nipple. Ouch.
