Charlie Wernham will be arriving in Walford this autumn playing Aaron Monroe.
He’ll stop by the Square to see his dad Harvey and younger sister Dana, whose rocky relationship with Bobby Beale will see her moving into the Square with her dad in the coming weeks. Aaron is Harvey’s wayward eldest son, who’s confident and likes to get his own way. He’s close to his dad who raised him alone but as soon as Aaron landed a city job in finance, he left home and didn’t look back.
Of his arrival to Albert Square, Charlie says “It was always a childhood dream of mine to be in EastEnders. It’s a show that’s constantly on TV in my household as my family are massive fans so it’s always been close to my heart. I can’t wait to get cracking and join an incredibly talented cast!”
Jon Sen, Executive Producer, EastEnders added “We’re very happy to be welcoming Charlie to Walford. His character Aaron joins the Monroe’s, our newest family set to move into the Square with connections to the Beale’s. In many ways he’s the opposite to his sister Dana and Harvey’s relationship with them both is likely to be tested. There’s more to Aaron than his bravado lets on and we look forward to Charlie’s arrival on screen later this year.”
Charlie begins filming on EastEnders this month.
