EastEnders has revealed a first look at the Square’s first drag queen Tara Misu, played by Matthew Morrison who has joined the cast in the role of Felix Baker.

As previously announced, Felix is the younger son of Mitch’s (Roger Griffiths) estranged brother Avery (Omar Lye-Fook).

Felix has arrived on the Square alongside Avery and Finlay (Ashley Byam), his older half-brother, and all three are set to stir things up in Walford this summer!

Matthew Morrison says: “I am blessed to have the opportunity to step into the heels of the fierce Tara Misu as part of my role on EastEnders. It’s a privilege to represent the LGBTQIA+ community and to showcase the creative art of drag to both viewers at home and the residents of Walford.”

Head to the EastEnders social channels to find out more about Matthew as he meets Natalie Cassidy and shares how it feels to be joining the EastEnders family.

Matthew also gets some top tips from RuPaul Drag Race UK’s Vinegar Strokes about what will make Tara Misu shine as a drag queen, including how to build confidence, how to master her walk and why leaving the house without a nail is a no go...
