Lucy's boyfriend cast in 'EastEnders'

Melissa Suffield as Lucy Beale

A young theatre student has landed the role of Lucy Beale's mysterious new boyfriend.

Bart Edwards, who attends Tring Arts Educational School, was discovered by one of the show's directors during a musical and has since been cast in the role of Olly, secret boyfriend to wayward Walford teen Lucy Beale (Melissa Suffield).

Speaking of his part, Edwards told hemeltoday: "It is just amazing. Everybody is lovely on the set. I watch EastEnders…but I never expected to be on TV with those people."

The 19-year-old, who describes his character as "a laid back person who takes each day as it comes", will first appear on screen next month. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
