He is currently playing the character of Kris Fisher in the Soap Hollyoaks. Kris is a young man who's in touch with his feminine side and his fondness for women's clothes means he demands attention everywhere he goes. With a caustic wit, he can crush people with a few choice words and rarely comes off second best in an arguement. However, beneath the flamboyant dresses lurks a deep-seated insecurity which is only revealed to those close to him. Kris is a fiercely loyal friend but with his outrageous style and brash personality, people can often take an instant dislike. He has recently embarked in a turbulent on-off relationship with fellow student Jessica.
