Danny Dyer to take over EastEnders’ Queen Vic

Actor Danny Dyer is to become the new landlord of the Queen Vic, when he joins EastEnders at Christmas.

The 36-year-old, who is often typecast in “hard man” roles, will play Mick Carter, brother to Shirley Carter (Linda Henry).

Mick is described as a “bloke’s bloke” with a soft heart. He will be joined behind the bar by his wife Linda, played by actress Kellie Bright.

“I’m so excited about starting a new chapter in my career,” said Dyer.

“I cannot wait to become part of the East End family.”

The actor is a real-life East end boy, born in Canning Town in 1977.
