Hollyoaks Top 5 Characters
Like most soaps, Hollyoaks employs a conveyer belt of characters. Every few months, someone will leave the fictional Chester village or somebody new will arrive.
However, there are several long established characters who have become the foundations of the show. Arguably the five most popular of these individuals are as follows:
Mandy Hutchinson - played by beautiful actress Sarah Dunn, Mandy has grown from a troubled schoolgirl to a well grounded married mother-of-one. Her husband is Tony Hutchinson and the couple had a lovely baby Grace. Sadly, the infant died in a recent episode.
Tony Hutchinson - wonderfully played by Nick Pickard, Tony is the only original character still in the show. Tony is married to Mandy and is perhaps the main source of humour on the soap.
Max Cunningham - played by Matt Littler, Max has matured from a cheeky teenager into a sensible, responsible young man. After his father's death, he took over the local store and helps care for his half-brother Tom.
Jake Dean - played by Kevin Sacre, Jake is the hard working eldest child of the Dean family. He is still married to Becca despite having an affair with Lisa Hunter last year.
Becca Dean - played by Ali Bastian, Becca is the wife of Jake Dean. Their marriage has always been strained, and recently she began an affair with Justin Burton, one of the students she teaches at the local Secondary school.
