Actor ‘Joshua Pascoe’ announced to play Ben Mitchell.
“I was so excited when I got the call to say I’d got the part of Ben Mitchell. I never thought I’d get onto a show as big as EastEnders. I’ve always watched the programme and it will be great to work with fantastic actors such as Steve McFadden and Linda Henry.” – Joshua Pascoe
Walford will soon welcome new young actor Joshua Pascoe playing Ben Mitchell when he returns to the Square later this year.
Ben’s return is set to stir up old animosity between the Beale and Mitchell clan as he tries to readjust to life on the outside having spent 6 months in a juvenile detention centre.
Ben finds himself once again caught in the middle between his brother, Ian and his dad, Phil with Jane and Shirley coming together to try to help Ben.
Joshua takes over the role of Ben from Charlie Jones who has now had now left EastEnders. Jones played Ben for four years in the BBC Elstree produced saga.
“I’m really looking forward to this fantastic opportunity and making the role of Ben my own.” – Joshua Pascoe
