EastEnders actor Adam Woodyatt, who plays Ian Beale, is set to star in the Wyvern Theatre’s Christmas pantomime – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Adam, who will play The Wicked Queen’s Henchman, is best-known for his role as Ian Beale in EastEnders, a part which he has played since the soap first aired 30 years ago.

The actor will switch Walford for West End for a whole month,

The EastEnders veteran said: “I absolutely love performing in front of an audience as it’s so different to camera – I love the reaction of the audience.

“I am very much looking forward to spending the Christmas season at the Wyvern Theatre, which I know has a reputation for staging outstanding pantomimes.”
