The votes have been counted and the results are in! We had a huge response from the British public (you lot) who made the effort to vote for your fave TV soap extra and in turn bring some of that lovely fairness into someone’s life. And so… we are happy to announce that the winner of the PlayOJO Soap Extra of the Year Award goes to… Colin Murtagh!
A massive congrats goes out to Colin who is finally getting some recognition for his hard work and talent. Col has appeared in more film and TV features than you’ve had Spina Coladas and his talents certainly don’t end there. When he’s not on set, our fave Extra spends his time taking care of other supporting actors and extras, booking and supporting them through their own TV and film careers. What a champ!
Our award winner has featured in a number of the UK’s favourite soaps, including Hollyoaks, Holby City, Coronation Street and Casualty. Most likely to be found playing a copper in the soaps, Col’s experience goes way beyond the boys in blue. From zombies, thugs and blood drenched battlers, Colin can swiftly transform into just about any character type. Just check out some of his more memorable contributions below. Warning: some readers might find some of following images slightly terrifying:
A big well done Colin. You truly deserve this recognition and we look forward to seeing which alter ego you’ll pull out next! OJO and out!
