EastEnders Spoilers – What Brings Keanu Taylor Back To Walford?
Keanu has been the man of the house. He didn’t have a father figure growing up, so he wants to be different from his dad. He reverts to his old habits but eventually realizes that he’s becoming just like his father, so he tries to change his ways.
His time in Portugal has taught him a lot of things. He had time to mature and to realize that he needs to take hold of his future, and returning to the Square can help him achieve that goal.
Keanu returns to the Square so he can build a relationship with his son and to rekindle his relationship with Sharon.
When asked how he kept his return to the show a secret, the actor said that he’s been making excuses. He always says he’s playing golf. But he told some that he’s reprising his role including his mum, dad, and brother.
He admitted that it’s been difficult for him to keep a secret, especially from his family. However, he respects Chris and the show, so he did all he can to keep his character’s return a secret.
