Smith in love with British soap

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood superstar Will Smith is so keen to be a part of British soap opera Eastenders that he has requested TV bosses to cast him in the show.

The 41-year-old actor became a fan of the series earlier this year when he was in London to promote his movie Seven Pounds and now he is hooked, reports

“I was just chilling in my hotel and Eastenders was on TV. I literally could not stop watching it. Before I knew it, all I had done was get room service and waste a whole afternoon watching this show I had

never heard of,” said Smith.

“It was so real and gritty. American soaps are all about the beautiful people and being cheesy. This soap had everything. There was fighting, people sleeping around, it had it all going on! I’m a bit busy but when things quieten down I’d love to do a cameo,” he added.
