Wood flattered by Kazinsky comment
Robert Kazinsky was impressed by Jake Wood's acting talent
EastEnder Jake Wood has said he is really touched that ex colleague Rob Kazinsky called him the best actor he has ever worked with.
Rob, who played Sean Slater in Albert Square but is now a hit in LA with a new role in TV series True Blood, paid Jake (Max Branning) the compliment earlier this year.
According to The Guardian he said: "I've worked with Oscar-winners and Golden Globe-winners but the best actor I've ever worked with is still Jake Wood."
Jake told Inside Soap: "I contacted Rob after I read that interview to thank him for it. It's nice to hear stuff like that.
"I'm so proud of Rob and the work he's doing in America. He's a lovely young man and it's great to see people move on from EastEnders and do well."
But Jake says breaking America is not top priority for him at the moment.
He said: "I'm happy here. I have a young family and I'm fully committed to the show. They give me plenty of good stuff, so there's no reason to move!"
