Ricky Whittle goes from Hollyoaks to Hollywood as he films with Liam Hemsworth

Hollyoaks's Ricky Whittle has left his Hollyoaks character Calvin Valentine far behind and headed for Hollywood to film new movie Land of the Bad which stars Liam and Luke Hemsworth.

Ricky, 40, played Calvin in the Channel 4 soap but in a recent shot posted to his Instagram, he's dressed in army trousers and a green top standing along co-stars Luke Hemsworth, Liam Hemswoth and Milo Anthony Ventimiglia, who he's tagged in the image.

The caption reads: "I’m not sayin' my squad is better than yours…. It just is" alongside fire, movie camera and sunglasses emojis.

Ricky continued: "Day 1- Meet the team. A Great first day in the can with this insanely talented cast and crew. This is gonna be fun."


Ricky appears very different since he left Hollyoaks behind for Hollywood. The actor was part of the soap from 2006 to 2010 but left the show 12 years ago going on to build an impressive career.

He had a starring role as Shadow Moon in the drama American Gods, which currently has a 77 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes and he also had a role in the sci-fi series, The 100.

Away from television, Ricky picked up a credit for the movie Nappily Ever After, which tells the story of a soulful barber who helps a woman revaluate her life.

The Oldham-born actor was pictured at the 61st Monte-Carlo Television Festival in Monaco in June sporting new blonde hair and a full beard.

Before heading to tinsel town, Ricky took part in the 2009 series of Strictly Come Dancing, where he finished in second place with partner Natalie Lowe.

During his time on Hollyoaks, he dated his co-star Carley Stenson, who played Steph Cunningham in the soap but the couple split up in 2009.


Since heading to the Hollywood Hills, Ricky has been linked to former Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szhor and Demi Moore's daughter Rumer Willis, although he isn't thought to have had a serious relationship since Carley.

What is for sure is that in 2019 he purchased a property in the States, splashing out on a £1.2million LA mansion. The large abode is said to boast three bedrooms and four bathrooms, a games room, a wet bar and even a wine cellar.
