Hollyoaks star lends a hand at classes

WANNABE actors attending a Sheffield workshop were delighted to find themselves being trained by none other than Junade Khan, pictured. What do you mean who's that?

He's the hunkiest Hollyoaks star to ever come from our fair city.

The 28-year-old, who played Ash Roy in the soap after training at The Sheffield College, turned up at the Stand By Method Acting classes where he offered expert tips and shared his experiences of small parts in Coronation Street, Walking The Dead and Pants Off Dance Off.

"He's an old friend from college," said Louise O'Leary who runs the sessions at the Victoria Hall Methodist Church in Norfolk Street. "It was exciting to have him giving his experiences of the industry and talking about his craft."

Judane, who now lives in London, says he is excited about his post-Hollyoaks future.

He is looking to get into films after last year starring in Brit flick My Dangerous Loverboy, a short by Sheffield-based director Virginia Heath about human trafficking, drugs and sexual slavery.
