In a recent interview, Bobby said he was “overwhelmed with emotion” during the filming of his first scenes EastEnders.
“There was sadness, there was anger, there was a lot of emotion, Freddie was overwhelmed,” he said.
“Before we shot it, I had prepared myself, but I hadn’t gotten into the emotions. At lunch I decided to lock myself in my dressing room and get the emotion of Freddie and really understand the emotion of the scene and I feel like I crushed it. I was so overwhelmed with emotion I was shaking.”
