EastEnders star Zack Morris reveals 'different' way of filming

EastEnders star Zack Morris has opened up about the show’s ‘new’ and ‘different’ way of filming.

The BBC One soap resumed production several weeks ago with new rules and regulations in place in order to keep everyone safe, and social distancing has been implemented.

Discussing the new way of filming, actor Zack Morris — who portrays Keegan Butcher-Baker — said: ‘Obviously it’s different.

‘But like everything you just have to adjust and especially given the circumstances, no one expected it to happen, so the fact that is has we’re all kind of going through it together.

‘It’s not something that’s happened before, this is a new thing for everyone. And it’s the first time it’s been different so even someone who has been there from day 1 is still learning. I like learning though so it’s been cool.’

Zack — along with co-stars Lorraine Stanley (Karen Taylor), and Maisie Smith (Tiffany Butcher-Baker) will join Stacey Dooley on the next edition of Secrets From The Square.

Discussing being back on set for the special episode, Zack said: ‘The thing I enjoyed most was actually coming into work because I hadn’t been to work for ages so that was one of the things I actually quite enjoyed.

‘For me, reliving some stories and reliving some scenes that I had almost forgotten about, when you film on a show like EastEnders you film so much. So to relive it and rewatch it and talk about it, it was quite nice, it was like reminiscing on old times. 

‘I think for me it was clip where they talked about the bus crash, it was the first stunt I ever did for the show. It was something that I filmed when I very first started. So the memory of that was starting to become distant.

‘So to relive that was quite cool, and to see some old faces who aren’t on the show any more. That was a big time for me.

‘My life had just started to change as I was just starting to become a regular and I just turned 18. For me it was quite drastic. To remember that and see that as my first big stint on the Square, it was nice.’


The BBC One soap was forced to shut down production amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and episodes which were completed prior to this were subsequently rationed out to keep it on the air.

These pre-lockdown episodes culminated on June 16, and therefore the serial drama was forced to go off screens for the first time in its 35-year history.

One to watch: Monday 10 August at 8pm on BBC One.
