Coronation Street actor John Michie is set to join the cast of HOLBY CITY.
Due to leave the ITV soap later this year and soon after join HOLBY, John will play new consultant neurosurgeon Guy Self, a man who – according to show bosses – will “combine passion and unpredictability with a hint of danger”.
Of his new role, John – who also starred in crime drama Taggart – said ‘I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the cast of Holby City and I’m looking forward to taking on a new challenge. My mum was a nurse and always wanted me to be a doctor not an actor so finally half her wish has come true!’
Executive Producer Oliver Kent added, ‘We’re very excited about John joining the Holby City family. He’s a great addition to the show and viewers can look forward to seeing some explosive storylines involving John’s character.’
