EastEnders recasts Johnny Carter with actor Charlie Suff taking over the role

EastEnders is bringing back the character of Johnny Carter with a new actor in the part.

Johnny will be returning to the Square in the “not too distant future” and will now be played by Charlie Suff.

Speaking on joining EastEnders, Charlie Suff said:

“I’m so delighted to be joining such an iconic programme – EastEnders was always on at my house when I was growing up. Johnny is a complex character who has been through so much, which I can’t wait to explore. I’ve found EastEnders to be the most kind and loving space to work in, and I already feel like one of the family.”

Johnny Carter is the son of Mick (Danny Dyer) and Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), who originally moved to Albert Square in December 2013. After landing a job at a law firm, he moved to Manchester in January 2018.

The character has been played by two other actors – Sam Strike originated the role across the Carter’s first year on the show, before Ted Reilly played him between 2016-2018.

Johnny’s storylines have included coming out to his family; a brief fling with Ben Mitchell and being shot by PTSD-sufferer Ted Murray.

Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer, said: 

“I’m delighted to welcome Charlie Suff to the role of Johnny Carter. Although we haven’t seen Johnny on The Square in almost five years, his character remains linked to the show and its most iconic venue, The Queen Vic. Since his short time away, the Carter family dynamics have changed significantly, and it’s safe to say that Johnny will be returning to a very different Walford than the one he left.”

EastEnders, Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One
