Gilet enjoys 'Jekyll-and-Hyde' character
Actor Don Gilet admitted he enjoys the “Jekyll-and-Hyde aspect” of his ‘EastEnders’ character Lucas Johnson.
Having already let his drug-addict wife Trina die after pushing her onto a garden rake, Lucas is now set to get rid of his love rival Owen, his new partner Denise’s ex-husband.
Talking about Lucas, Don said: “Every actor enjoys playing a character who’s flawed - but how long can Lucas continue to hide the dark side of himself before the cracks start to show? I think a lot of people reckon the clock might be ticking.”
“This story has shocked some people! I was getting fan mail where people were saying what a nice guy he was – and, of course, now they know he’s not.”
Speaking about the current interaction between Lucas and Owen, he added: “They’re locking horns. These are guys with chequered pasts and an intense mutual distrust of each other.”
Lucas first appeared on Albert Square in early 2008.
