Antoine 'Wani' Ouradi (played by Alex Wyndham
An indulged and indulgent only child, Wani comes from a Lebanese family, and is heir to a multi-million pound supermarket chain. Beautiful and decadent, he is like a delinquent prince and refuses to admit he is gay.
To appease his domineering father, he is newly engaged to a girl carefully selected by the family, and keeps his affair with Nick a secret. Wonderful and pathetic, Wani at times treats Nick badly, but pays for the privilege of doing so; everything in Wani's world can be bought. Wani later supports Nick financially, and Nick colludes in Wani's fatal cocaine and sex-fuelled spiral of self-destruction.
A graduate of Oxford University and of RADA, Alex Wyndham's other credits include the part of Silvius in Kenneth Branagh's 2006 film of As You Like It, and an appearance in T4's girl-band soap Totally Frank* as Ben.
During his studies he did a lot of stage performance, including touring Japan with the Oxford University Drama Society's production of Love's Labours Lost. Amongst his other accomplishments is a black belt (first dan) in Shokotan Karate.
