After last’s week’s revelation that Eastender’s Ben Hardy (Peter Beale in the popular soap) is leaving Walford for a plum part in the next X-Men movie, it seems that Mick Carter’s boy, Johnny, is hot on his heels.
The rumour mill went into overdrive when the news came that actor Sam Strike had landed a leading role in a Blockbuster Hollywood movie but it seems we were all wrong. According to ‘The Wrap’, the 21-year-old actor will play the role of Jackson, the teenager who grows up to become Leatherface, the deranged killer of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie franchise. The horror prequel is being directed by Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo.
Strike is also lined up to appear with his former screen dad, Danny Dyer, in the crime flick Bonded by Blood 2.
