EastEnders star Jake Wood has revealed that Max’s revenge on the Albert Square regulars is to play out over years rather than months.
Likening the storyline to Max’s fling with Stacey, Wood told RadioTimes.com: “All the best storylines that people enjoy are mapped out over a long period.
“With Max and Stacey – that was always a three-year storyline and Max’s revenge is going to play out for at least that long, hopefully.”
Viewers have already seen Max convince Shirley to sell the freehold of the Queen Vic, while also trying to part Jack from Ronnie’s young son Matthew.
Wood also said that the likes of the Beales were also “guilty by association” in not attempting to exonerate Max while he languished in prison for a crime he didn’t commit.
