Eastenders' Perry Fenwick Having Nightmares Over Olympic Torch
"I come in on a morning and do a few laps of Albert Square," Fenwick said, "I basically want to find every pothole so the crew can fill them in. I've started thinking, 'God, it's not far away now'." He added: "I've been having these bizarre actor/athlete dreams where I've got no trousers on or I'm tripping up. It's a weird blurring of fiction and reality."
Fenwick carries the torch on July 23rd on its way to the London games, going past famous 'Eastenders' landmarks The Queen Vic and the launderette. Some of the footage recorded on the day will be used in an episode of the soap, and Fenwick said , "My main concerns are remember my lines, don't fall over and don't let the torch go out. If I can achieve that on the night and do a little bit of acting on top, then I'll be thrilled. Hopefully, there'll be a large gin and tonic waiting for me in my dressing room afterwards." He added: "The fact that an extra couple of million people will tune in to see whether I fall over is a pressure in itself."
