Plays
Seb Webb

TELL US A BIT ABOUT THE CHARACTER YOU PLAY?
We know from Footballers' Wives that Seb is a cruel manipulative character. Yet in Extra Time, we see his more sensitive side.

REMIND US OF THE LAST TIME WE SAW YOUR CHARACTER AT THE END OF FOOTBALLERS' WIVES SERIES 4.
Seb was kicked out of the house by his dad, Roger for sleeping with his stepmother, Jackie.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT PLAYING YOUR CHARACTER?
How Seb sees what he wants and goes for it. If he doesn't get it, he will keep coming back for more.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE AND DISLIKE ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER IF YOU WERE INTRODUCED IN REAL LIFE?
I wouldn't like his way of dealing with family issues. I do quite envy his passion to get what he wants without a worry... carefree.

WHAT ARE THE SIMILARITIES /DIFFERENCES BETWEEN YOU AND THE CHARACTER YOU ARE PLAYING?
We both have a fiery passionate side and sometimes have to pay the consequences by trying to do the right thing. In terms of his attitude towards his dad and step mum, I suppose you could say we are two very different people.

WERE YOU A FAN OF FOOTBALLERS' WIVES BEFORE GETTING INVOLVED WITH EXTRA TIME?
I have to say, once you start watching Footballers' Wives it becomes compulsive viewing!

WHAT DO YOU THINK VIEWERS WILL THINK OF THIS EXTENSION TO FOOTBALLERS' WIVES?
I think it's great to have a spin-off series of such a successful show. I think viewers will really embrace the new series with the new characters and cracking storylines.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST PROFESSIONAL ACTING ROLE?
I was lucky enough to walk straight out of the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, straight into a role in the BBC's 'Blackpool' with some terrific actors.

WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND BROUGHT UP?
I was born and bought up n Blackpool! The village I lived in was called Poulton-Le-Fylde which I still visit regularly because I love it and love seeing all my mates.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
In South London with a few other actors.

DO YOU SUPPORT A FOOTBALL TEAM?
I love Manchester United and always listen out to see how Blackpool's getting on.

WHAT IS YOUR STAR SIGN AND DO YOU BELIEVE IN THEM?
My sign is Libra. Obviously when you read your signs you make it fit into your present situation. But I usually don't read too much into it.

WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING INVOLVED WITH EXTRA TIME?
Getting to work with some great new actors and crew, plus getting new storylines, I find that really fresh and exciting.

HAVE YOU FILMED A MEMORABLE SCENE YET?
Well Seb gets a love interest in Extra Time called Yasmin (Frances Da Costa). Our first day of filming together was quite a steamy limo scene... but I'll let you see for yourselves.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING TO DO AFTER FINISHING FILMING THE SERIES?
Keep working hopefully; I've got rent to pay!

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME? ANY HOBBIES OR SPORTS YOU ENJOY?
I enjoy playing squash with my mate Brownie plus I'm thinking of joining a gym! Obviously the Playstation 2 is a necessity every once in a while.
