Ethan has been seen pursuing a relationship with waitress Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) on the show, despite already being engaged to fellow newcomer Liberty Savage (Abi Phillips).
However, speaking to the official Hollyoaks website about Ethan and Liberty's romance, Vye explained: "It's quite a casual relationship to begin with - she thinks about it more seriously than [he does]. She thinks that [they're] engaged.
"I wouldn't say that Ethan's a player. I think he's quite cool and a bit of a ladies' man, but he's not nasty with it. He just can't help himself, I think!"
The actor added: "He starts falling head over heels in love with Theresa McQueen, so there is a bit of a love triangle that's going on, because Theresa is best mates with Liberty. So I think it's going to be interesting!"
Ethan is currently unaware of Theresa's dark history as she continues to hide the fact that she killed Calvin Valentine earlier this year.
