The former 'Brookside' star plays a sexually conflicted character once again in the new short.

By Will Stroude

The first trailer for new LGBT short film Just Me starring Philip Olivier is here – and things look rather heated indeed in the gritty exploration of sexual desire.

Former Brookside star Olivier – who previously played a man coming to terms with his sexuality in 2006’s Hollyoaks: In the City (while similtaneously making many a viewer come to terms with theirs) – once again plays a sexually conflicted character in the new short from Mickey Jones.

Philip, 38, takes on the role of Scott, a man who is due to be married until a stranger from his past (played by Boys on Fillm‘s Carl Loughlin) turns up on his doorstep.

Loughlin plays a policeman with a secret life named Connor, whose life is changed by the encounter.

Just Me is set to be released on DVD and Video On-Demand by Peccadillo Pictures as part of their next Boys on Film collecton, and will also set to be screened at selected cinemas around the UK over coming weeks.

You can catch it at Liverpool’s OUT Club on 19 November and FACT cinema on 17 December, as well as Cambridge’s Arts Picturehouse on 22 November.
