EastEnders star Bobby Brazier details tough scenes on BBC soap which left him in tears



Bobby Brazier was left in tears after some tough scenes on EastEnders.

The actor - who is the son of Jade Goody and Jeff Brazier - will tackle a tricky plot in the coming weeks, which will see his character Freddie Slater battle with some bad memories from his past. When Jean Slater says something to him about being stupid, he is triggered by what happened between him and a teacher at school and goes back to confront them.

Bobby admits the scenes were very difficult to film, and he was left in tears after them. He explained he was glad to see Freddie giving some emotion as well as he's usually got a comedic element to his character.

He said: "I was filming with Freddie's Nanny Jean and we were sat on the sofa afterwards, and it took us a minute to shake off the tears and sadness. It's interesting as I've mainly been doing comedy, but soon we're going to see some emotion from Freddie."

Bobby also explained how there will be some twists in the storyline.

"Freddie used to get called 'thick' at school and made to feel stupid all the time, so what Jean says really hurts him. It forces him to confront things from his past and give the teacher who was horrible to him a bit of a talking to," he added.

"Freddie feels good for doing it, initially, but this is just the beginning of the story."

When Freddie arrived on the Square, bosses teased that he would cause quite the drama when he turns up. He was described as a "modern day lad" with a "sensitive soul" - but there was also promise of "chaos and mischief" too.

Speaking about his new role, Bobby said: "I’m really excited to be joining the cast of EastEnders - so far it’s been perfect. Everybody has been so beautiful to me and made settling in easier than I could’ve hoped.

"Stepping into the acting world has always been a vision of mine and doing that with EastEnders as a Slater is a blessing, I'm very grateful. Loving every minute of Freddie so far and can’t wait to see what’s in store for him in Walford."

Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer, added at the time: "Freddie Slater is a chaotic 18-year-old with a sensitive soul. A modern-day lad who’s in touch with his spiritual side. He’s philosophical, accepting, but full of mischief and makes mistakes. Bobby is an amazing young addition to the EastEnders cast who brings heart and humility to the role of Freddie Slater."
