Theo Hawthorne has easily become arguably the most hated character on EastEnders currently. Thanks to his vile acts and sinister intentions towards Stacey. But whatever his on-screen persona maybe, Theo’s portrayer William Ellis is just as human as the rest of us in real life. The soap star recently took to social media to open up about a person tragedy that would leave anyone shattered. William shared a stirring tribute to his late baby boy.
The world acknowledged the week of October 9-15 as the Baby Loss Awareness Week. The EastEnders star took the opportunity to remember his son Dash, whom he and his wife lost around six years ago. William (Theo) took to his official Instagram account to share a black and white photo of himself and his wife holding their new born son at the hospital. “This week is Baby Loss Awareness week, and ends with a Wave of Light on Sunday 15th.” he wrote in the caption.
William then went on to share that he and his family will light a candle in memory of their wee boy, Dash, whom they lost in 2017. Furthermore, he added that It’s important for them to keep his memory alive. And as a family sometimes they wear their grief visibly. As it allows them to remember it mattered. “Sending love and light to everyone affected by this type of loss,” he concluded his post. Seeing the photo and reading the heartfelt caption really makes us feel deeply for William and his family. It is definitely not a loss that is easy to endure.
However, it is incredible how the phenomenal performer has held a brave face and is continuing with his life. Although, we must add that our love and softness remains limited to William. It certainly does not extend to Theo on EastEnders. The character is really wicked and deserves a terrible fate. Especially after the way he attacked Stacey in the recent episode in an attempt to rape her. Moreover, as a result of the chaos, Freddie is now facing an uncertain future too.
The storyline became so heated that it has literally become a household talk. Recently, even William posted about the EastEnders story on his social media. “It wasn’t easy this week and it was my privilege to be able to work with the likes of Lacey Turner and Bobby Brazier, who are just outstanding.” He wrote showering his praise for his co-star’ brilliant performance. As of now, Theo is recovering from Freddie’s beating. Do you think Theo will back-off now? Or will he come at Stacey even stronger? Tell us in the comments.
