First look as EastEnders star Nigel Harman joins Casualty as new Clinical Lead

It’s been confirmed EastEnders legend Nigel Harman has joined the cast of Casualty, as previously revealed by, playing Holby ED’s new Clinical Lead, Max Christie.

Max is charming, lives by his own rules and is absolutely someone everyone wants to be treated by.

However, when Max comes face to face with current Clinical Lead, Dylan (Will Beck), it’s clear they have unresolved history.

It becomes apparent that these two characters went to medical school together, and with Dylan being less than pleased to see his former classmate, how will Max settle into life at the ED?

Max will make his arrival later this month, and it’s safe to say he will be making a huge impact on the hospital.

Discussing his new role, Nigel Harman said: ‘I’m honoured and grateful to be joining the cast of Casualty. Many pals have donned the famous scrubs over the years and had a ball, so for me it was an easy decision.

‘With Max the viewers can expect a character who leads with his heart and not always his head. Never afraid to get in a scrape or two, yet loyal to the end even if it means putting himself in danger.’

Jon Sen, Executive Producer for BBC Studios added: ‘We are thrilled to be welcoming Nigel to the cast of Casualty. When we conceived the character of Max we knew we needed an actor with craft, charm and charisma and we approached Nigel knowing he’d be the perfect choice.

‘We were over the moon when he agreed to play the role and from what we’ve seen so far, Nigel’s creating an iconic character who is set to stir things up within the Emergency Department. We can’t wait for the audience to meet Max.’
