The actor has been seen previously in ‘Call the Midwife’ and ‘Silent Witness’, and he will star in the soon-to-be-released ‘Blank Shores’. In ‘EastEnders’, Farrar will play new character, the charismatic Zack Hudson.
Zack Hudson is an unpredictable troublemaker who lives life in the fast lane. A lone wolf, Zack had a difficult childhood that has left him determined to never rely on anyone or become too attached. Forever the ladies’ man, Zack is sure to ruffle a few feathers when he arrives in Walford – will he finally find the home he’s always needed or will trouble follow him to Albert Square?
On his arrival to Albert Square, James Farrar says “I’m thrilled to be joining ‘EastEnders’. As a born and bred Londoner myself, I can’t wait to bring my experience of a place I love and know to such a well-respected long running show, with such iconic characters. Zack certainly has a very complicated past and there is a real depth to him that I can’t wait to explore.
Jon Sen, Executive Producer, EastEnders added: “James is a wonderful addition to the ‘EastEnders’ cast, playing the charming rogue Zack Hudson. We are all excited to see James bring the character to life and there’s plenty of drama in store for him – trouble is always just round the corner…”
Farrar will start filming in February and will appear on screen in March.
