Steve reveals he plays a soldier called Stephanos in Hercules: “I had some amazing scenes with some pretty amazing actors, some English actors, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Reece Ritchie, Rufus Sewell, some of your finest in film and I got to share a bit of screen time with them, which was amazing.”
But his experience on Hercules hasn’t turned his head towards Hollywood. In fact, he doesn’t see much difference between working on a big-budget spectacular and a soap opera.
“The only difference is film is a lot slower. The quality of Home and Away and something like Hercules is really the same. It’s just that you just spend a lot more time on a film like Hercules than you can on something like Home and Away.
“I love film. If they keep giving me time off to do films I can’t see why I can’t do [films and Home and Away].”
Herclues opens at UK cinemas on Friday, July 25.
