Khali Best: Eastenders has changed my life

SOAP STAR: Khali Best

EASTENDERS ACTOR Khali Best says that starring in the soap opera has changed his life forever.

Having taken on the role of Dexter Hartman at the start of the year, Best says he has been overwhelmed by the increased attention he has received from the public since his first episodes were aired.

Best told the Radio Times: "I cannot live what people consider a normal life anymore.

"But that's not a problem. It's part of the job but I don't think anything can really prepare you for the experience.

"On January 7... when my first episode aired, I didn't know I was on TV at the time, but I left my house to go to the cash point and literally stopped traffic.

"People were getting out of their cars and beeping their horns. It was ridiculous."

He added: "So I went back inside and thought, 'Okay Khali, things have changed now. You're famous. But that's not a problem. Just calm down and relax'. And day by day it got more apparent. But it's cool."
