For a period of five years, Zack earned significant renown for his portrayal of Keegan Baker. Not only this, he even won the IARA UK Award for Best Young Actor and even received the BAFTA Award on behalf of the entire team.

Besides gaining friendships on the show, Zack also earned several takeaways from his time on the series.

The couple’s whirlwind romance began in the summer of 2018, just as Zack’s storyline in ‘EastEnders’ took off.
While his on-screen character grew closer to Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith), things between Zack and Brooke began to unravel. Ultimately, Zack and Brooke parted ways in December 2019 after realizing that their relationship had run its course. Later, a friend of the makeup artist revealed that Brooke felt as if Maisie Smith was the other woman in their relationship. Brooke’s friend also alleged that actress Maisie Smith was a big flirt. The anonymous source exclaimed that Brooke had confided in them and said, “There were three of us in that relationship.”
Later, speculations about a prospective romance between Zack and Maisie Smith also arose. However, the actress later took it upon herself to lay all the rumors to rest. In an interview with The Sun, Maisie confirmed the nature of their relationship. She reasoned, “Because he’s the opposite sex, people just jump to conclusions that we are an item. We’re actually just good friends.” As of now, it seems that the ‘Goosebumps’ actor has taken a step back from relationships and has been evaluating his prospects as a performer. Nevertheless, we continue to look forward to all the personal and professional milestones that lie ahead in Zack Morris’ career.
