“It was so damn fun I stayed for two. What a treat to go in daily and play this character and his arc from beginning to end. Loved it all and wouldn’t have changed a thing.

What happened to Kian in last night’s episode?
In last night’s devastating episode, Kian was fighting for his life after overdosing on the drugs he had gone back to.
Although Chloe did her best to try and save her, Kian didn’t respond to attempts to revive him.
It was left for Fletch, Jeong and Lucky to feel guilt for his death – each of them felt responsible.
Andrei, too, whose life Kian helped to save, was also deeply affected by his death.
