The storyline in question draws in a number of the show’s youths, including Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey), Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) and Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby).
Speaking about the actors who portray the aforementioned mainstays, Iain had nothing but praise, teasing that they’ll be at the centre of the soap with ‘months of story.’
‘They are phenomenal is the simple way to describe them,’ he told Metro.co.uk.
‘Whether they’re playing the more synthetic characters or they’re doing that with incredible heart and believability and nuance and those who are playing the less synthetic characters have embraced that and gone at it with a professionalism which would be a credit to actors who have been in the business for years and years.
‘The performance level most importantly is incredibly high, I guess when you’re telling a story that albeit that does draw in Roy, Abi and Kevin and the older cohorts and the heritage characters, ultimately it’s routed in an incident or a series of incidents that occur within this younger group of characters, therefore they are carrying a huge amount of responsibility with this story.
‘They are just outstanding across the board, I hope you will agree when you watch it, I feel like the younger cast involved are pitch perfect.
‘I suppose were they not would we have thought twice about telling this story or thought slightly differently maybe. But the moment you see them act you just think yes.
‘ These guys have got this and it will run and run and run this story. It is one of those things where a really shocking in sighting incident triggers months and months of story with these younger cast at the centre of it.
‘Everything I am seeing was just knockout, honestly they are so good. I couldn’t be more proud.”
