Actor is third star to quit soap in recent weeks
The actor, 28, who has played cross-dressing bisexual student Kris Fisher since 2006, is ready for a change.
‘There comes a time when every character reaches a point when it’s natural and believable for them to leave,’ he tells Inside Soap. ‘I think Kris’s end should be this summer after he graduates.’
Gerard’s announcement comes soon after two other Hollyoaks stars announced their own impending moves.
