These new faces already have old friends in the Emergency Department.
You might recognise Osi's face if you watched Death In Paradice, King Gary or Prisoners Wives.
A BBC insider has told me "Osi will appear on screen as Matthew later this month" which means Matthew will arrive on 29 May due to Casualty taking a weekend off for the Eurovision Song Contest finals from Rotterdam, Netherlands this coming Saturday (22 May).
"It's a pleasure to become a part of the Casualty team. Everyone here is so genuinely friendly and it's a very exciting environment to work in. I'm excited for viewers to see Matthew's love for his patients and his willingness to do whatever it takes to care for them; it's a quality I really admire in him."
But, that's not the only new addition to the Holby City Emergency Department because later in the year, Casualty will be celebrating it’s 35th anniversary of being on our television screens with some special episodes.
Elinor Lawless will be joining the stellar cast as Stevie Nash, a new consultant who audiences will meet during these episodes. Jam-packed with explosive drama, audiences can expect to not only meet new characters, but also be reunited with one or two old faces as well.
Elinor has already been in Casualty back in 2019 as Hollie Summer so it's safe to say Elinor knows her way around the department. She has also appeared in six episodes of EastEnders.
"I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the wonderful cast of Casualty! Stevie Nash is certainly a force to be reckoned with and looks set to ruffle a few feathers in the Holby ED!"
Loretta Preece, Series Producer of Casualty for the BBC, pridefully talks about her team's new recruits and has given an in-depth statement about all things Osi & Elinor.
Loretta Preece, says:
"I am delighted that Osi and Elinor will be joining the Casualty family. As an actor, Osi has it all; he's handsome and debonair, sensitive and steadfast, passionate and unpredictable. Osi has been delightful to work with and he and Olivia have a very special on screen bond. With Osi's beautifully layered performance we slowly reveal some deep undercurrents - he is far more than a classic romantic leading man. Eli is an exceptional actress and a force of nature. With Stevie, Eli brings a new and dangerous energy into our world – she's charismatic, contemporary, compelling and on occasion very unsettling. Her wonderful character and additive backstory is an exciting part of defining a new and exciting era for Casualty as we go into our 35th year."
Casualty returns to BBC television Saturday 29 May 2021.
