Congratulations to City Lit drama student Ted Reilly who has joined the cast on top BBC soap EastEnders as Johnny Carter.

Ted completed our Drama Foundation course and later joined the City Lit Rep Company, starring in the 2011 production of A Christmas Carol directed by City Lit tutor, Vernon Thompson.

Ted's EastEnders' character Johnny is part of the popular Carter family, headed up by Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter played by Danny Dyer. As Mick's son, Johnny enjoyed a dramatic storyline where he came out to his family before deciding to go off travelling. Ted made his debut on the show in April.
