RICKY Whittle has promised to help former Hollyoaks co-star Jamie Lomas with his US ambitions.
Jamie, who is engaged to Ashton actress Kym Marsh, recently bowed out from his role as Warren Fox on the Channel 4 soap, and has often said that he would like to secure Stateside acting work.
His former co-star, Ricky, who used to reside in Billinge, is now settling down in Los Angeles to focus on his US dreams.
He recently had a small part in film Austenland, alongside actress Jane Seymore, and hopes to introduce Jamie to his contacts.
He said: “I’m going to introduce Jamie to some people while he’s here and I’ll help him find a car.”
Meanwhile, Ricky told the Liverpool Echo about his near misses.
He said: “It’s been a couple of months of frustrations because of visa problems, so I’ve missed out on playing a killer in CSI: Miami and a role in NBC’s comedy Up All Night.
“It’s very frustrating because I was in Las Vegas when I got offered CSI. So when I got a copy of my visa to them it was too late.
“But I got three of my last four gigs and my agent said if all of his clients did that, he’d be a rich man. I’ve got my green card coming through and I’d like to apply for American citizenship.”
