Max is set to reveal his big secret ahead of his wedding to fiancée Tanya (Jo Joyner) in the Christmas episode of the soap.
Wood revealed to MSN: "He's not going to get a quiet life, we know that. There's more drama ahead for Max, a lot more drama."
The actor, however, said that he prefers Max's dramatic life, adding: "It's incredibly exciting to be at the centre of the big episodes."
Wood admitted that the current storyline of Max's big secret is one of his favourite plots.
"This has got to be up there, and also the Stacey affair. I loved working with Lacey Turner - she's an incredible actress and that [storyline] was well mapped out too," he said.
The Christmas episode where Max's secret will come out will air tomorrow (Tuesday, December 25) at 8.45pm on BBC1.
