EastEnders: Departing star Matt Lapinskas eyes Guy Ritchie movie role
Ritchie – who was formerly married to pop star Madonna – famously directed cult movies Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Revolver and RocknRolla.
While speaking to Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox, Matt said, “My ideal job? I’d love to go off and do some great films.
“I’d love to work with Guy Ritchie, that’s putting it out there.”
However, Matt also revealed that he’s keen to try his hand at reality TV shows, and would consider following his former cast co-star Kara Tointon – who played Dawn Swann – and compete on Strictly Come Dancing…
He said, “That would be an absolute pleasure. I love shaking down and whacking some moves out.
“It’d be good trying to do the classical ballroom and stuff.”
And finally, Matt – who’s dating co-star Shona McGarty – said of his time in Walford, “It’s been a great year. Obviously I’m leaving in a little while…
“I should be on screen until about September time – but I’ve loved my year there.
“There are fantastic actors and actresses there.”
Here’s a reminder of Matt’s arrival on the Square as Anthony…
