'EastEnders' Danny Dyer: 'Mick Carter entrance is flawless'

By
EastEnders' new recruit Danny Dyer has promised that viewers can expect a "flawless" entrance for his character Mick Carter when he arrives on Christmas Day.

The actor began filming at the BBC soap last month in the role of Mick, who is Shirley's brother and the new landlord of the Queen Vic.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1 this afternoon (November 20), Dyer said that he is delighted with his festive debut.

He explained: "I can't ask for anything more. If I come in, I want to come in. It's flawless, but it's not going to be what you expect."

Dyer also admitted that he took some time before accepting the offer to join EastEnders.

"I thought long and hard about it and it's just come at the right time in my career," he commented. "I've always respected soap actors because it's a tough gig and I've learnt that.

"On a film, a good 12-hour day, you do nine pages - that's a day. You're doing 25 pages before lunch on EastEnders."
