EastEnders Adam Woodyatt revealed that Ian Beale will not be able to return until 2020 at the earliest
Oriental actor Adam Woodyatt revealed that his character Ian Beale will not return to the screen until 2022 at the earliest.
The 52-year-old actor is taking a short break and appears in the tour of “Looking at Dead Objects”, which may now last until next year.
The production was originally scheduled to start in January, but was postponed to July due to Covid.
Adam hopes to reschedule the missed performance time to early 2022, which means that his rest time is longer than fans expected.
When asked about his return on “A Show” tonight, he said: “I don’t know. The tour lasted until the end of October, and then my daughter got married in the United States.
“The tour may continue until early next year, so if the tour continues, I won’t be able to return to EastEnders until 2022 at the earliest.”
In January, the last time he appeared on the screen was his character. Ian was in a daze outside Walford after Sharon, who had been converted from family and friend to wife, tried to murder him. .
Adam travels wildly around the UK in an RV and plans to use it on tour because “he doesn’t like hotels”.
He explained: “Because I have been on this theater tour, I don’t want to stay in the hotel, so I am not a big fan of it.
“I have many friends who spend a lot of time on the road, but I just think,’I’m going to drive home.
“‘I can drive across the country.'”
Adam is the longest serving actor in EastEnders, joining after the first soap opera in 1985.
