Newcomer Jonny Labey has joined the cast of EastEnders.

Set to arrive in Walford this spring as Paul Coker, he quickly sets one particular heart of the Square on fire. Grandson to Les and Pam, Paul Coker is 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.”

Always playing to the gallery, Paul has spent the past two years revelling in his independence abroad, soaking up the sun and creating scandal 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 will first appear on-screen as Paul Coker in June 2015.
