Legendary Brian Conley is heading to Albert Square next month playing Terry Cant, Sonia’s long lost father. Terry’s arrival in Walford will be a huge shock for Sonia, who’s been feeling lonely since Bex’s departure. Terry, the ultimate people pleaser, will quickly charm everyone in Walford. How will Sonia react when he turns up in Walford?
On his arrival to Albert Square Brian says “As you can imagine being a Londoner and now being part of EastEnders is such an incredible moment for me. I know for sure my dad’s looking down from above and saying “Good on yer son!” It was always his favourite programme. So in so many ways it really is an honour to be part of such an iconic show and to be working with an incredibly talented team on camera and off. I cannot wait to order my first pint at The Queen Vic.”
Jon Sen, Executive Producer, EastEnders added: “We are delighted to welcome Brian to Albert Square. We had been searching for some time but the moment we met Brian, we knew instantly we had found our man. Brian’s a talented performer whose charm, wit and charisma are exactly the qualities we want for Terry. We’ve got some wonderful stories in store for him and can’t wait for the audience to see Brian bring him to life.”
