Casualty casts Wolfblood actor Bobby Lockwood as 'charming' new paramedic Leon
CASUALTY has welcomed Wolfblood actor Bobby Lockwood in the role of 'charming' new paramedic Leon.
The 27-year-old actor has joined the cast of the popular BBC medical drama and commented: "it's a privilege to be representing paramedics and the NHS."
His new Casualty character is described as 'handsome, charming, loveable', but at the same time fans are warned that he 'could possibly get on your nerves'.
The description went on: "Leon cares so much about what others think, and puts 110% effort in with everyone he meets.
"However, his endless excitement can get in the way of knowing exactly where to stop, and he can sometimes brush his friends and colleagues up the wrong way."
Bobby, who starred in the fantasy teen drama Wolfblood, was himself full of enthusiasm for his new role.
He said: “I have absolutely loved playing Leon and it’s a privilege to be representing paramedics and the NHS at such a critical time.
"Covid has made our job harder, I can only imagine how difficult it must be for our actual heroes on the front line."
Lockwood's credits also include appearances in the BBC's Waterloo Road and in 2014 he won their gymnastics show called Tumble.
