West End actor Sam Tutty has joined the cast of Hollyoaks as an employee of dodgy gangster Fergus Collins (Robert Beck).
Sam, 23, won an Olivier Award for portraying the titular role in the West End production of Dear Evan Hansen.
He will make his debut in the Channel 4 soap next week, where he will play computer wizard Timmy Simons – a young lad who has been groomed by Fergus and pulled into the seedy underbelly of the crime world.
The character will uses his unique skills to look after the technical side of sinister Fergus’ dodgy dealings, and will work with him on the mysterious operation bluebird.
You might think Timmy to be harmless at first, but rest assured there is a lot more to him than meets the eye!
Actor Sam will be filming scenes alongside actors such as Robert Beck (Fergus), Jamie Lomas (Warren Fox), and Richard Blackwood (Felix Westwood).
‘Working at Hollyoaks is an absolute delight,’ said Sam upon joining the cast of the Channel 4 soap. ‘Everyone has been so welcoming and have been very supportive whenever I have had any questions.
‘This mainly goes out to the wonderful Robert Beck who plays Fergus, Timmy’s terrifying overseer.
‘I feel so privileged to play a character like Timmy, he is clearly terrified of those he works for.
‘His poisoned moral compass has led him down a treacherous path and I’m very excited to see what’s at the end.’
Timmy’s first appearance will air Wednesday June 2 at 7pm on E4.
