Chris Charles joins HOLLYOAKS as series regular Nate
Hollyoaks has revealed the casting for new character Nate Denby.
Chris Charles will play stall-holder Nate and become a new roommate for Grace and Ripley.
Nate becomes fast friends as they work together in the marketplace, but their living situation gets complicated when he also develops romantic feelings for Grace.
Yet, there are questions over whether Grace can trust him, or whether there's more than meets the eye to the friendly new flatmate.
"I'm absolutely thrilled and honoured to be joining such a legendary show and staple in British television," Charles said.
"Words can't describe how blessed I feel or the level of excitement I have to get started and bring Nate to the village for all of our amazing audience. Let the drama begin!"
