Last week, EastEnders bid goodbye to gay teen Ben Mitchell, leaving only engaged couple Syed Masoodand Christian Clarke as the gay citizens in Walford Square. But soon there won’t be any gay folks left in town as actors Marc Elliot (Syed) and John Partridge (Christian) will exit the soap in November.
But before fans cry that the show is trying to degay the long running UK soap, that isn’t the case. It was the actors choice to leave, at least in one case. Reportedly, Elliot decided he wanted to leave the show after three years in the role of Syed Masood. That led to Partridge being written out as well.
EastEnders isn’t the only soap to lose its gay characters. Thore Schölermann, who plays Christian Mann onForbidden Love is bidding goodbye to the German set drama, but the actor will reportedly return to the show. Schölermann is merely taking a four month break from the show while he tapes the reality show The Voice of Germany. No word on how the actor will be written out of the show, but since Christian has so little storyline anymoreone wonders if anyone would notice if he left for a few months.
So Marc Elliot and John Partridge from eastenders are leaving and so is Thore Scholermann from VL (chrolli). honestly, I am not surprised, i’m sad about it but the writers haven’t been doing anything for these actors to want to stay. I don’t see why John has to leave given the gay banker will be there but I suppose given the fact they are now engaged (syed and christian) it would be hard to find another way to end things like that. however, I’m glad Thore is not leaving officially ( I hope) but they haven’t written anything good for these actors (imo).
Oh the days when chrolli was all firey
Christian and Oliver | Verbotene Liebe
hate to say it. sorry guys but I miss when Chrolli used to be all steamy.
