Marc Elliott Defends Plot

Marc Elliott says his Muslim character's gay affair in 'EastEnders' mirrors real life.

The actor defended the BBC soap storyline which has sees his soon-to-be-married Muslim alter ego Syed Masood embark on a passionate secret affair with Christian Clark saying he's received much support from the Muslim community.

Marc said: "I actually got a letter from a gay Muslim who had the same situation as Syed 10 years ago. He told his family and now they've accepted him and his partner. I have lots of lovely letters and, surprisingly, no bad feedback at all."

Marc warns that he doesn't think there's much chance of a happy ending for Syed and Christian however, and that his character will carry on living in denial with Amira Shah.

He said: "He's confused. He's being driven by lust but he also wants to be a good Muslim and make his family proud.

"He wants to marry Amira and have children because he thinks that's what he should do."

I think that syed should end up with christian the one he really loves. you can tell that syed loves christian back just as much, so if he doesnt end up with him i might end up crying for christian's sake because he is my favourite character along with syed, which is why i was so happy when they both admitted they loved each other but then i almost died when syed said he would marry amira, i want it to all end well for christian as you can tell that he really loves syed <3 x
love Danielle x

There would be no Chryed without Christian and Syed, these two are perfect together. I wanna see a gay wedding and a happy ever after and where all families learn to accept one another, and i would love to see it happen. They have both said i love you to each other what more could they ask for apart from each other.

Love Kathryn Xxx
