Casualty : first ep news .. 12 February 2014
Lee Mead and the cast of BBC Casualty, 2014 Ever since the announcement last summer that Lee had landed a regular role in BBC's long-running drama, Casualty, people have been asking Lee (and me!) when he would appear on screen. In January executive producer, Oliver Kent, had this to say about Lee and his character:

"Lee will be playing the most adorable character - I think he'll be the new Abs. Lee is probably the nicest guy in showbusiness; he has this completely ego-free quality that comes across in his performance. We basically wrote the part for him once we learned that Daniel Anthony wanted to go. We thought: we need a youngish male nurse; do you think we could get Lee Mead? And we did. So we've written the part around him."

He started filming last November, with a break for panto in Plymouth before returning to the set at the end of January, and after a long day of press interviews on 12 February, Lee was finally able to confirm on Twitter when his first episode as Lofty would be broadcast...

Pleased to announce that my first episode as Lofty in Casualty will be Saturday 1st March! #BBC1

The BBC later released a promo video (right) to introduce Lofty and give a glimpse behind the scenes of his first few days' filming.

So for your additional viewing pleasure, there are a few screencaps and a download also available, while details of all Lee's episodes can be found at HOLBY & CASUALTY INDEX.
