Former EastEnders and Shameless actor Jody Latham has joined the cast of Waterloo Road, reports Digital Spy.
Latham will make his debut on the BBC One drama in a few months time as manipulative criminal and former boyfriend of Dynasty Barry (Abby Mavers) Steve-O Malone. Show bosses say the character’s arrival will “rock the foundations of Waterloo Road”.
Latham recently played the role of Whitney Dean’s (Shona McGarty) evil pimp Rob Grayson in EastEnders and previously starred in Shameless as Phillip ‘Lip’ Gallagher. He isn’t the only former Eastender to join Waterloo Road in recent times as Laurie Brett and Zoe Lucker both play regular roles in the school drama.
The current run of Waterloo Road continues Thursday at 8.00pm on BBC One.
