His character’s gruesome departure from EastEnders in 2010 left the nation in tears.
And while many dedicated soap fans remember him as boyish Bradley Branning, actor Charlie Clements is worlds away from his former role which he revealed in his latest social media selfie.
The 29-year-old – who’s character Bradley plunged to his death off the Queen Vic pub roof seven years ago on Albert Square – appeared to have swapped his clean-cut look of yesteryear for a shaved head and beard.
The flame-haired star added to his transformed appearance with a pair of thick rimmed glasses that showcased the difference between his soap days as Stacey Slater’s husband.
Taking to Twitter to share the snap, the actor – who is set to turn 30 in June – revealed his appearance was even different than the last time many saw him.
Captioning the pic, he wrote: ‘A year ago everyone was up in arms because I looked SO different at 28 to 18. Bet they didn’t expect this at 29! #actor #chameleon’.
Charlie’s much-loved character Bradley was wrapped up in a number of great storylines with his co-star Lacey Turner – who has since returned to the Square as Stacey – before his grizzly end.
His character infamously fell off the Queen Vic’s roof in a desperate attempt to escape the police in a special live episode that won him Best Exit prizes at the British Soap and Inside Soap Awards that year.
