Sam Strike - From Eastenders to Hollywood

Well everyone seems on about the fact the BBC are recasting Johhny Carter in EastEnders, which obviously means Sam Strike won't reprise his role.  Well it's a soap having different people play the same person is nothing new.

Strike had been cast as Jackson Sawyer, the teenager who became Leatherface, in the upcoming The Texas Chain Saw Massacre prequel Leatherface, Starring alongside Stephen Dorff, the film which is set to be released in late 2016 revolves around a teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell.

Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge. It is written by Seth M. Sherwood and set to be directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. Filming began 18 May 2015 in Bulgaria and ended on 19 June 2015.

He also starred in Silent Witness in January 2016.  So I'm sure he's not too bothered about EastEnders.
