Hollyoaks casts non-binary actor Ki Griffin as newcomer Ripley Lennox

Hollyoaks has confirmed a full time role for actor Ki Griffin, who fans may recall as a friend of Tom Cunningham’s who appeared earlier this month.

Ki plays Ripley Lennox, who quickly befriends some of the local youngsters in the village.

Ripley will be working at a second-hand clothes store at the Cunningham’s Grand Bazaar and will strike up a friendship with local teens – Peri Lomax, Yasmine Maalik, Romeo Quinn as well as Tom. 

Actor Ki identifies as non-binary and they are back filming on set now that production has resumed on the show.

Hollyoaks was forced to come off air due to the pandemic lockdown but recently they opened up filming again with safety measures to ensure social distancing.

The show will celebrate its 25th anniversary in October, with episodes expected to start airing again in September.
