EastEnders Spoilers show that Dayle may have had some help in preparing for his role as Peter by an ex Eastenders Star who played Peter before him. However, who could be the Peter that helped him prepare for his role? Well, Dayle sat down with Digital Spy to talk about this.
EastEnders Spoilers – Dayle Hudson Contacted By Former Peter Beale
EastEnders Star, Dayle Hudson, has picked up the role of the seventh actor of Peter Beale for the BBC soap. This could be extremely stressful and a lot of pressure for someone as they try to make the character their own. However, Dayle was able to get some advice from a former Peter actor. The star told Digital Spy, “I spoke to Tom [Law] as his mum works at EastEnders as well. On my first day, Adam [Woodyatt] introduced me to her and said she was one of the original Peters’ mums.
We got on like a house on fire. Tom then got in contact and was like, ‘My mum absolutely loves you!’ and we started speaking. It was lovely. I asked Tom for a bit of advice, and he has been sound. He’s been in the industry a lot longer than I have, so he’s been on hand every time I needed to ask him something. He’s been so easy to talk to. It’s literally been perfect.”

Getting help from the former Peter must have helped Dayle a lot. As viewers know, Thomas Law played Peter between the years of 2006 to 2010 after the role was then taken over by Ben Hardy. Dayle also said, “I generally try not to stress out in my day to day life. I knew that I was going to have to put my own spin on it anyway because I am only human, and I can’t act like Thomas Law or Ben Hardy.

I was quite lucky as well because Peter has changed a lot and has been in New Zealand for six years. In that time, he has grown into a different person who left which has given me almost a blank canvas to work with. It was intimidating but it was a lovely balance of people knowing who he is, but he’s also been away for so long and has room to breathe, grow and change which is nice.” Watch EastEnders from Monday and Friday at 8 pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30 pm on BBC One to find out what happens next.
