EastEnders Lacey Turner is joy to work with as Theo star gushes over actress
EastEnders star William Ellis gushed over Lacey Turner as he opened up about acting opposite her on the BBC soap.
Back in April, the actor joined the cast as Theo Hawthorne and the character quickly became infatuated with Stacey Slater. Things took a dark turn in October when Theo broke into Stacey's home and attempted to rape her.
It is likely he would've succeeded had Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) not accidentally stumbled upon him about to commit the crime. But their relationship couldn't be more opposite away from the soap as William couldn't speak higher of Lacey when asked about her at the Inside Soap Awards.

He exclusively told Daily Star: "She's amazing. Most of my stuff has been with Lacey and I've learnt a lot from her.
"She's the most humble person you'll ever meet in your life, she has no idea how good she is." The soap star continued: "She's extraordinary, the way she just turns up and just does it in the moment.
"It's been an absolute joy to work opposite someone of that skill level and as good as her. He went on: "I don't think we would've seen the same Theo if it was a different actor so I have to thank her for being so brilliant."

EastEnders fans are just over one month away from finding out who is murdered at Christmas and several fingers have pointed at Theo being the victim. Although this would mean an exit for his character, William admitted it's a privilege that viewers believe it could be Theo.
He said: "The fact that people are thinking it could be Theo again is a privilege because it just shows that as an actor, I've made an impact and people are talking about it. But also you're working with Lacey and these other wonderful big actors. It's awesome and you're treading in their pool. It all feels like a gift and a real privilege."
Last month, William paid tribute to his late son Dash to mark Baby Loss Awareness Week. In 2017, the TV star and his wife Alice were devastated when their baby boy passed away at just one week old. Taking to Instagram, William shared a black and white photo of himself and Alice cradling Dash, who was born prematurely at 25 weeks.
William captioned the post: "This week is Baby Loss Awareness week, and ends with a Wave of Light on Sunday 15th when we – as a family – light a candle in memory of our wee boy, Dash, who we lost in 2017." He continued: "It’s important for us to keep his memory alive and in doing so wear our grief visibly at times, for that allows us to remember it mattered. Sending love and light to everyone affected by this type of loss."
