EastEnders casts Micah Balfour in the role of Junior Knight

Micah Balfour is set to make his debut on EastEnders as Junior Knight, the estranged son of George Knight (portrayed by Colin Salmon).

Micah Balfour said: 

“I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of EastEnders as part of the Knight family. I grew up watching the show and many of the characters have been part of my life for as long as I can remember, so walking onto the Square for the first time was the most surreal experience of my career!

“It’s a privilege to work with Colin Salmon, who I’ve watched with admiration for many years, and Francesca Henry and Molly Rainford, who are dynamite on screen, as well as the amazing Harriet Thorpe and Kellie Bright.

“Junior is an exciting character to play as he’s a complex man, and he’s going to cause a bit of a stir!”

With a complicated father-son relationship spanning decades, Junior arrives in Walford as George continues to spiral following Gloria’s death.

While the exact details of their estrangement and shock reunion remain under wraps, it soon becomes clear that George’s enigmatic firstborn is keeping a few cards close to his chest…

Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer, said:

“I’m delighted to welcome Micah Balfour to the cast of EastEnders as he takes on the role of Junior Knight. Although Junior has been referenced since The Knights arrived in the Square, the audience knows very little about George’s son and the circumstances behind their estrangement.

“Junior arrives in Walford following an unlikely meet with his dad and is quickly thrust into the heart of the drama. However, it will soon become apparent to viewers that there is more to Junior than meets the eye…”

Balfour’s previous credits include Emmerdale, Doctor Who, Death In Paradise and The Bill. His first appearance as Junior will air later this month.
