For ex-Hollyoaks stars Rachel Shenton and Chris Overton, the fairytale is just beginning.

Having picked up the Oscar for best live action short film, a LOT of doors are about to open for the pair.

Rachel acted in, and was the creative force behind, The Silent Child while Chris, her fiance, directed it.

But they’re not the only Hollyoaks stars who’ve gone on to bigger and better things.

As fans of the soap will know, Rachel played Mitzeee Minniver in the Channel 4 soap while Chris played the role of cage fighter Liam McAllister.

And while they’re getting the headlines right now, they’re following in some pretty big Hollyoaks footsteps.

Nathalie Emmanuel

Nathalie played the role of Sasha Valentine from 2006 to 2010 before moving on to HBO smash Game of Thrones as Missandai.

She’s evolved into one of the drama’s biggest characters, as right hand woman to Daenerys Targaryen, and Nathalie has also had roles in The Maze Runner film series as well as Furious 7.
