Former EastEnders star, Charles Venn is joining the cast of Casualty as nurse Jacob Masters.

In the BBC1 soap, Charles, known then as 'Chucky' played Ray Dixon, the former the boyfriend of Bianca Butcher and the father of her young son, Morgan. In his new role as Jacob, Charles will make his first appearance on 13 June when his character will be seen bursting into the Emergency Department doing all he can to make sure his friend is seen to and making quite an impression on the medical team.

When Connie finds out that he’s a nurse she mentions that they’re advertising for new staff and it's not long before he becomes a favourite among the ED crew.


“It's truly a pleasure and honour to be part of Casualty as it’s such a successful long standing medical drama," says Charles. "I'm keenly relishing the challenge and I look forward to tackling the role of Nurse Jacob.”
