From a play­boy in El­do­rado to scorned lover in Easten­ders

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR MOVIE PLANNER -

When Sharon Rick­man made her re­turn to Al­bert Square, she was a woman on the edge af­ter flee­ing from her fi­ancé, but what sort of man could strike fear into the daugh­ter of Den­nis Watts? When the shad­owy fig­ure of John was re­vealed, Sharon’s an­guish was un­der­stand­able: here was a man whose idea of re­venge for be­ing left at the altar was to kid­nap a de­fence­less child – looks like Shazza def­i­nitely had a lucky es­cape. This isn’t the first time ac­tor Jesse has por­trayed a bad boy. In the ill-fated 1990s soap El­do­rado he played Marcus Tandy, whose sharp suits and flash apart­ment were funded by his dodgy wheel­ing and deal­ing on the Costa Del Crime.
