Steve McFadden: Phil Mitchell is never boring

EastEnders star Steve McFadden has said he will never tire of playing Phil Mitchell - because the character has undergone so many changes over the years.

The 52-year-old actor has played the character for over 20 years, and in that time has faced some dramatic story lines including battling alcoholism and drug addiction, having a string of flings and surviving being shot.

And speaking to Inside Soap magazine Steve said, "I had some time to sit back and reflect over Christmas, because I was off doing panto.

"It's my 21st anniversary in the show, and all these year later, I'm still involved in the biggest, hottest and most exciting stories.

"I always say that I've played many different characters during my time in EastEnders," he added, "they've just all been Phil Mitchell!"

Steve added that he would love to see Phil get back together with Sharon who is returning to the show after a six-year absence.

He said: "I think Sharon can touch a place in Phil's soul, and open a doorway that never got completely closed.

"So there's every chance that Letitia and I will be working together, and that Phil will see in Sharon something that he misses."
