Lee Mead to Join Casualty

West End performer and Any Dream Will Do winner Lee Mead is joining the BBC medical Drama casualty as a regular character playing nurse Lofty, who is described as "a likeable and popular nurse with a less-than-ordinary background".  Lee has previously appeared in the drama in a one off guest role.

Commenting on the role he said "I'm thrilled to be joining Casualty. I really enjoyed my guest appearance in 2011, but this will be a completely different challenge.When I first read about the character Lofty I didn't imagine I would be in the frame to play him. I am hoping he will charm audiences and they will get behind him. I can't wait to get started and to learn all of the medical jargon!"

Casualty's Executive Producer said: "As the character Lofty was being developed, we couldn't think of anyone else to better to play him. We can't wait to start filming and are thrilled to have Lee join the team.With a very different background to most of the other nurses, his clumsy charm is sure to win everyone over."

He will begin filming at BBC Cymru Wales’ Roath Lock Studios later this year, with the episodes set to air for the first time in early 2014.
