EastEnders bosses have cast Paul Coker – grandson to Les and Pam. Paul will be played by Jonny Labey, Paul Coker has been billed as fun, honest, and always the centre of attention. His natural confidence is born of knowing and being comfortable with exactly who he is.
EastEnders’ Executive Producer, Dominic Treadwell-Collins said “Jonny’s a sensitive, clever and intuitive actor and has fitted in to his new Walford family with ease. We’re all looking forward to seeing the trouble that Paul will cause for his grandparents, as he uncovers some secrets from the past and sets one heart in particular racing…”
Paul has spent the past two years soaking up the sun abroad and working as a club rep. So what or who will keep him in Walford?
On securing the role, Jonny added: “I am overjoyed to have been given the role of Paul Coker and am thrilled to be joining the show at such a prevalent time – as it marks its 30th anniversary. I know I’ve got a lot of work to do to live up to the talent I shall be working with, but I have never felt more welcome and cannot wait to get started.”
Jonny’s first appearance as Paul Coker in EastEnders will be in June 2015.
