Former EastEnders star Charles Venn has joined the cast of Casualty.
The Saturday 13th June edition of the medical drama will see Venn make his debut as nurse Jacob Masters, who makes a bold impression on the team when he arrives at the ED seeking medical assistance for his friend. When Connie learns that he’s a nurse and mentions that they’re advertising at the moment, he wins everyone over by his subordination of Connie.
“It’s truly a pleasure and honour to be part of Casualty as it’s such a successful long standing medical drama. I’m keenly relishing the challenge and my time in Cardiff and I look forward to tackling the role of nurse Jacob.” – Charles Venn
Oliver Kent, Casualty Executive Producer, adds: “We are thrilled to welcome Charles to Casualty. As Jacob, his good looks, charm and wit will certainly cause a tidal wave of testosterone in the emergency department. He’s going to ruffle a lot of feathers and, no doubt, set a few hearts racing….”
Venn has also played regular roles in Dream Team and Footballers Wives and recently guest starred in The Musketeers.
