William Ellis, a star of EastEnders, has discussed how he manages his demanding filming schedule and swimming competitions.

On the BBC One soap opera, the actor who plays Theo Hawthorne recently completed a 65-kilometer swim around Jersey in 9 hours and 52 minutes.

William mentioned that he doesn’t know how he managed to squeeze everything in over the course of the past year while discussing the difficulties that come with juggling two of his loves.

The Express quoted him as saying, “It was an issue of making sure I joined the correct gym that was close to set so I could go and get my swimming in after work.”

And, I must add, a wonderfully understanding wife who has handled my time schedule just as well as I have.

William’s Jersey swim helped Amaze, a nonprofit organization that helps the families of children with disabilities, by raising money for it.

The son of the soap opera star has Mowat-Wilson Syndrome.

A hereditary condition called Mowat-Wilson Syndrome can have an impact on several physiological systems. It could be noticeable right away or later on in childhood.

William debuted on EastEnders earlier this year as Theo, Freddie Slater’s (Bobby Brazier) old high school teacher who quickly developed feelings for Stacey (Lacey Turner).

Sinister Theo claimed to be in love with Stacey after months of following her. He then locked a scared Stacey in her kitchen and attempted to rape her.

In a heated altercation, Freddie defended Stacey by hitting Theo over the head with an iron.

Theo survived the assault, but he hasn’t yet been made to pay for his crimes, it was later revealed.

Mondays through Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., EastEnders may be shown on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
