James Alexandrou (Martin) Live Chat
James Alexandrou (Martin) dropped by for a chat
Why killing Jamie Mitchell was a bit of a laugh.
Angie: Your surname doesn't sound English. Where does it come from?
I'm half Greek, my dad's a Greek Cypriot. I've got relatives in Cyprus but lots of relatives in London too.
Andy: What's it like to act a scene which involves hitting someone with a car?
Martin Fowler
It wasn't as great as it looks on screen. We were shooting for a week and you shoot little bits and pieces of it. It was good fun though, getting to bomb around Albert Square in the car! There was a stuntman for Jack and me ... they both had dodgy wigs on.
Alex: Have you got any major roles other than EastEnders coming up?
Not planned no, I'm happy in EastEnders and I've got some good storylines now. It's good to be part of it and we'll just see how this goes.
Lorlababe: Which acting school did you go to?
The Anna Scher Theatre in London. Natalie Cassidy went there too. It's not a full-time drama school, it's more a group after school but it's very respected. I was about eight when I started. My mum put my name down to get me off the streets really.
Bethy: What has been your favourite scene so far during your time in EastEnders?
Apart from the stuff at Christmas, it was the drugs storyline with Nick Cotton. When you take drugs, you become a different person, so it was nice to get away from Martin a little bit and do something slightly different.
Laura: Do you live in London? Are you a typical Londoner?
I live in North East London. I used to live in Hackney which is proper East London. What's a typical Londoner though? I suppose I am.
