Tom Watt would love to come back to "EastEnders" full time.
The star is set to reprise his role as George "Lofty" Holloway alongside Mary "The Punk" Smith (Linda Davidson) for a one-off appearance after three decades away from Albert Square, and he'd be tempted to make a longer return if it was offered.
He told Metro.co.uk: "Well I don't know, they've never said. If they did, yeah I like acting, I really like acting, it's not that I'm not doing it because I don't like acting, I'm not great at waiting for the phone to ring.
"I love acting, I had a really good time. It's harder work now. They work a lot harder than we did. We did two episodes a week. They do twice as much."
While Tom, 62, is happy with his current jobs away from the camera, he admitted he would like the chance to take on another acting role.
He added: "I'm working ghostwriting an autobiography.
"I was filming in Liverpool to produce some short films for BT sport and about the premiere league about disability projects around football clubs, I do about ten of those a year.
"All sorts of stuff, but there would always be a bit of room for acting. I've been kinda waiting, if I wait long enough..."
Since leaving "EastEnders", Tom has appeared in the likes of "Lost Dogs", "Comedy Playhouse" and "Doctors".
Lofty departed Walford in April 1988 after his marriage to Michelle Fowler (Susan Tully) broke down, and the former Queen Vic barman embarked on a new career as a social worker.
His and Linda's characters will return to Albert Square to pay their respects to Doctor Harold Legg (Leonard Fenton) at his funeral.
