EastEnders Actor Nigel Harman Looks Totally Unrecognisable With Long Hair

Die-hard EastEnders fans will remember the days when soap star Nigel Harman graced screens as bad boy Dennis Rickman...

Almost 13 years have passed by since the actor caused trouble in Walford, so, as you may have already guessed, he looks pretty different.


In fact, Nigel has actually grown his hair out into luscious long locks, and wears them in a tousled look. The term unrecognisable gets thrown around quite a lot nowadays, but I guess that you could say that he is just that.

Nigel stepped out onto the red carpet on Wednesday night for Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution play at London County Hall, wearing a leather bomber jacket, denim shirt, brown chinos and a casual backpack thrown over his shoulder.

During his time in EastEnders, Nigel was involved in loads of dramatic storylines, and things came to a grisly end for his character Dennis when he was stabbed to death in the street during a New Year's Eve party and lay dying in Sharon Mitchell's arms.

He also managed to floor Phil Mitchell with just one swing of his fist, and sort of married his half-sister.

Since then, the actor has gone on to pick up loads of roles in both TV and on stage. He once portrayed music-mogul and Britain's Got Talent judge Simon Cowell in a West End Musical inspired by The X Factor.

In fact, when it comes to the West End, Nigel has a pretty impressive track record, as he was once cast in Guys and Dolls and also played Lord Farquaad in Shrek the Musical. The latter role also earned him an Olivier Award.

The soap actor played hotel manager Sam Franklin in Hotel Babylon back in 2009, and also starred in season four of Downton Abbey as Alex Green...

You can catch the actor on-screens now, as currently starring as Bradley Dawson in Sky comedy Mount Pleasant.
