MEET Holly Weston, the new Hollyoaks star that is joining the cast tonight. The blonde actress plays Ash Kane, a rebellious party girl who has had a hangover or two in her time.
C4 says: “You’ll never find her spending a quiet night infront of the telly – well, unless it involves lots of alcohol, heavy metal and ill-advised flashing of body parts.”
We say: “It sounds definitely sounds like our student days… if we could remember them.”
Here we get to know seasoned actress Holly a little bit better with a few quick-fire questions.
Most lusted-after holiday destination?
“I really like Greece. Anyway in the Mediterranean really. I really like Italy but I haven’t been for ages. I love the food. That’s it, that’s a big factor in where I go on holiday.”
Any current Hollyoak star you would like Ash to hook up with?
“I’m really enjoying Ash being really independent and not being tied down. I like that there seems to be a lot of little romances going on and I really like that she doesn’t go in for all that, she’s just out to have a laugh and be round her friends.”
What’s it like working with the new cast?
“Oh brilliant, it’s so cool that we’re all going in together because we’re all new at the same time and they are all so funny and we have such a laugh, they are such great guys and we all get on really well. It’s brilliant. We have such fun on set.”
Fail-safe movie choice?
What designer would you rock on the red carpet?
“I really like Missoni. I always love their stuff.”
Have you ever danced on a bar?
“Yes! Loads of times. I’m sure I have.”
Ever thrown a drink over someone?
“No. Have I? No. Not that I can remember anyway!”
Pin-up movie star
“James Franco. I love him.”
