Ben says EastEnders kissing scenes 'are a doddle'
The actor who has been cast as the latest incarnation of Peter Beale in EastEnders told The Sun he wasn't shy about intimate scenes.
He said: "This is my first telly role, but I've done countless kissing scenes in the past. The last play I did, I was naked, simulating sex. So for me a kissing scene on EastEnders will be a doddle.
"I've got my first topless scene coming up. I won't be stepping out the shower yet, it's more taking my T-shirt off to help a young lady. That's all I can say."
Ben has also been enjoying getting stuck into the EastEnders fight scenes by going for Joey Branning, played by David Witts.
He said: "We went for it. You don't want to go too far, but if you don't go far enough it's rubbish."
Ben will soon be seen taking alcoholic teen and ex-flame Lauren Branning on a date, not realising she is a problem drinker.
He is encouraged to take her out by her mum Tanya who thinks he will be a good influence, but things quickly turn sour when Peter realises the extent of Lauren's problems.
