Hollyoaks John Pickard is unrecognisable 13 years after quitting soap as Dom | The Sun

FORMER Hollyoaks star John Pickard looks completely different 13 years after quitting the soap.

The actor, 45, recently shared snaps with his partner and young daughter during a trip to Iceland.

The trio took in the stunning scenes, including incredible beaches, geysers and waterfalls.

John has kept a low profile in the acting world since appearing in Casualty in 2015.

This latest social media sighting comes as John also surprised fans with his changed appearance in November 2021 when he was spotted alongside his brother and fellow Hollyoaks star, Nick Pickard, and soap legend Will Mellor.

The trio enjoyed a rare catch-up and were all smiles for the camera.

While he also teaches at Goldsmiths University in south east London, John hopes to one day be back in front of the camera again at some point.

"Fortunate enough to work on the front line on some of high volume serial dramas I hope to be a part of again one day," he wrote on his Vimeo page.

John's brother Nick would be more recognisable to fans as Tony Hutchinson.

Nick joined the soap in its first episode in 1995 and that makes him the show's longest running actor.

Their dinner companion, Will, also got his showbiz start on Hollyoaks and this year joined Corrie as the criminal drug dealer, Harvey.

The 44-year-old praised the show for kick-starting his career, but devastated fans by confirming he won't be coming back.

"Hollyoaks started my career, so how could I not be a fan?" he told ITV's Lorraine, presented by Christine Bleakley in 2020.

"I have a lot to thank Hollyoaks for where I am now and the shows I've done."

Will then paid tribute to his former co-star and friend Nick Pickard who still plays Tony Hutchinson in the Channel 4 soap.
