Hollyoaks introduces two new Asian characters

Hollyoaks producers are introducing two new faces to Hollyoaks village – brother and sister Ravi and Leila Roy.

Cheeky jack-the-lad Ravi, played by Stephen Uppal, has already made his first appearance, while budding artist Leila will first appear late in June.

Ravi lands himself a job as doorman at The Loft. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get off to the best start with fellow resident, Nancy (Jessica Fox). She takes an instant dislike to Ravi and even accuses him of trying to abduct baby Charlie!

But far from being upset, Ravi appears to like the spark he’s struck with her.

Leila is completing a summer Art Course at HCC. Desperate for some student digs, she quickly bonds with Kris and Elliot and is overjoyed when they offer her a spare room in halls, pending her cooking skills.

Stephen said: “Ravi certainly makes an impression when he arrives at Hollyoaks. His cocky attitude gets him a job as doorman at The Loft and he certainly wins over resident bad-boy, Warren, with his cheek. There’s also some chemistry between Ravi and Nancy, but if Nancy likes him, she’ll have to get her skates on before man-eater Mercedes beats her too it!”
