Bobby Brazier joins EastEnders as Freddie Slater

He'll make his acting debut as Little Mo Slater's 18-year-old son this autumn.


Freddie Slater was last seen in Walford in May 2006 when he and Little Mo left to start a new life away from Walford. Now an 18-year-old Freddie is set to arrive on The Square as he finds himself on a mission that could end in heartbreak.


Described as a bundle of energy and a truckload of trouble, Freddie Slater has a heart of gold but can’t help getting himself into mischief. While he’s sweet like his mum, he certainly isn’t shy and manages to cause a stir wherever he goes. But is he a true Slater at heart?



Speaking about joining EastEnders, Bobby Brazier said "I’m really excited to be joining the cast of EastEnders - so far it’s been perfect. Everybody has been so beautiful to me and made settling in easier than I could’ve hoped."


"Stepping into the acting world has always been a vision of mine and doing that with EastEnders as a Slater is a blessing, I'm very grateful. Loving every minute of Freddie so far and can’t wait to see what’s in store for him in Walford."


To which EastEnders' Executive Producer, Chris Clenshaw, added "Freddie Slater is a chaotic 18-year-old with a sensitive soul. A modern-day lad who’s in touch with his spiritual side. He’s philosophical, accepting, but full of mischief and makes mistakes."


"Bobby is an amazing young addition to the EastEnders cast who brings heart and humility to the role of Freddie Slater and I can’t wait for audiences to get to know him."


EastEnders continues Mondays to Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One
