Young actor Gabriel Clark has joined the cast of Hollyoaks taking over the role of Ollie Morgan, the Channel 4 soap has confirmed.
Clark, 22, previously appeared on the soap as one of the victims of child abuser Buster and also had a brief part on Coronation Street last year as a friend of footballer James.
"I'm so excited to join the cast of Hollyoaks," Clark said in a statement. "Two years ago, I was part of the Buster storyline, so to finally be here, playing a lead role in Hollyoaks, it is very surreal.
"When I was younger, I did a few CBBC shows, but mainly theatre."
Clark's first scenes will air this month.
