Oppenheimer fans have been left stunned after spotting Hollyoaks legend, Guy Burnet, in the hit Blockbuster film.
Soap fans will recall that Guy, 39, played Craig Dean in the popular Channel 4 soap from 2002 until 2008.
Guy has since gone on to have a successful Hollywood career with appearances in films such as Pitch Perfect 3, where he played Theo in the 2017 movie. The actor has also appeared in hit TV series Ray Donovan, The Affair and Counterpart.
However, it's his latest project that has left fans stunned as he is part of the star-studded cast of Oppenheimer, which was released in cinemas on 21 July 2023 in the UK.
Guy plays George Eltenton in the movie, which also stars Cillian Murphy, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt – to name a few.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Oppenheimer is absolutely breathtaking and, hopefully, the beginning of Craig from Hollyoaks’ renaissance."
A different account put: "Was that Craig from Hollyoaks in Oppenheimer?"
Another follower wrote: "Craig from Hollyoaks is in Oppenheimer???"
While a different viewer commented: "I know we made all of our Oppenheimer cast jokes last year but I don’t think a lot of people have properly grasped that Craig from Hollyoaks is actually in it."
It comes as Emily Blunt, who plays Kitty Oppenheimer in the film, said that the entire crew of Oppenheimer, including the scientific advisors, read American Prometheus before beginning filming.
The British actress, 40, said the 2005 biography of the US theoretical physicist had been “super helpful” and contained “endless nuggets” to help with character development.
Emily stars alongside Cillian Murphy and Florence Pugh in the film, directed by Christopher Nolan, which tells the story of the "father of the atomic bomb".
It is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer, written by Kai Bird and Martin J Sherwin.
Speaking at a photocall for the film in London last week, Emily recalled preparing for the role while flying out to New Mexico to begin production.
"We all read American Prometheus," she told the PA news agency.
"I remember on the flight to New Mexico when it was starting – everyone on board was reading that book, the entire (crew)… all the scientists were reading the book.
"We’re all trying to cram it before we started, but it was super helpful. There were endless little nuggets and wonderful little nuances to think about the characters."
