Following on from an appearance on The One Show, Nigel Harman has been welcomed to CASUALTY – introducing his character, Clinical Lead Max Cristie.
Max immediately rolls up his sleeves and gets stuck into ED life much to the dismay of the current Clinical Lead Dylan Keogh and we learn the pair know eachother from their medical student days.
Talking on The One Show, Nigel reveals ‘What’s coming down the line is we unravel a bit of the Dylan storyline.. they both have a trauma that they experienced in their past at university and that leads to their animosity, which we’ll unpick.’
On his new role he added, ‘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 said of his arrival ‘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.’
Nigel Harman makes his debut on CASUALTY on 18th February.
