“I have learnt so much about acting, television, how production works and being on set so I have really been blessed with this opportunity.”

He added he actually feels quite sorry for his character: “Seb is quite a troubled person, I feel sorry for him because he has had a lonely and stressful existence.

“He has been defined by other people throughout his whole life because his life has been based on caring for people and he has not managed to escape from that.”

As for the latest hate crime storyline, Harry hopes it will inspire kindness with viewers.

The actor continued: “I would like to think that it would start a conversation in people’s living rooms.

“Seb and Nina are attacked because of prejudice and hatred for the way Nina looks – they are two characters that the audience knows personally and sees as kind, innocent and well intentioned people.
