Scanlan: I wouldn't change Brendan
Emmett Scanlan enjoys his alter-ego's darker side
Hollyoaks star Emmett Scanlan has insisted he wouldn't want Brendan Brady to lighten up.
The actor, who picked up the best villain gong at last year's British Soap Awards for his portrayal of the bad boy, said: "I don't think there's much interest in Brendan walking down the street, going into Price Slice and buying himself a packet of Jaffa Cakes.
"He's not that normal nine to five kind of guy. He's always got this darkness to his character and that's what makes him interesting."
Emmett admitted he did share some similarities with his evil alter-ego.
"You bring elements of yourself into every character. There are little pieces of me in there I guess - definitely as a family man, and there's the loyalty there. But I've never murdered anyone with a hammer!" he joked.
He said of Brendan's on-off relationship with Ste Hay: "Everything's a game to Brendan. Everything has an element of power, control and possession. No-one plays with Brendan's toys except Brendan himself. That's not to say it isn't love, of course it's love but it's a different kind of love to anybody else's.
"He'll do whatever it takes to get possession of Steven and to be with him. I don't know how that would work, for the relationship to blossom if they were publicly just going out with each other. But nobody gets in Brendan's way. He's got this skewed kind of moral code and he will do whatever it takes and get rid of whatever obstacles are in his way."
