Jamie Bartlett leaves Rhythm City after 13 years

Actor Jamie Bartlett has bid farewell to Rythm City following his long-running role as David Genaro.

Bartlett played the popular character for 13 years.

He spoke to Joanne Joseph about cutting ties with his character and what's next.

I was very in love with him and I tried to paint him very finely. He wasn't just a dull, dark block. He was many many shades - he was very funny, he laughed at himself, he had a sense of self-irony. He understood himself and it was such a pleasure to paint him in the detail.

For the moment I just feel Jamie needs to sit down, look at his feet and find his breath again...I am going to be 54 this year. I have worshipped at the throne of the craft so long, I just want to spend a bit of time thinking of me.
