EastEnders actor injured during scene

EastEnders actor Ricky Champ has revealed that he was injured during the filming of a dramatic scene for the soap.

Champ, who plays Stuart Highway, tweeted, “Fractured my metatarsal in my foot shooting this scene” in response to a video clip. The clip shows Stuart reacting in anger to an argument with his friend Mick, played by Danny Dyer, taking his rage out on his own belongings by destroying them. Viewers watched as Stuart smashed photographs, kicked and threw furniture, and even used a knife to deface pictures of himself and Mick together.

“Choreographed every beat and every smash,” tweeted Champ in response to questions about the scene.

Champ has received praise for his acting during the scene, with one responder to his tweet calling it “Scary”.
