Bradley Walshs son Barney lands major acting role as he joins BBCs Casualty

Bradley Walsh’s son Barney has landed himself a huge acting role as he's joined BBC's long-running medical drama Casualty.

The 25-year-old is no stranger to appearing on TV screens and has already been following in his famous dad's acting footsteps.

Barney has appeared in several TV shows, including BBC’s Death in Paradise, as well as co-starring with his dad in ITV’s The Larkins.

But for his latest TV stint, Barney has ventured out into the world of medicine for upcoming episodes of Casualty – describing his new job as a "real joy".

Barney will play accident prone Cameron, who joins the team working at the Emergency Department.

Described as woefully lacking in self-confidence and a perpetually terrified fish out of water, Cam arrives at Holby to realise he might have bitten off more than he can chew.

Speaking about his new role, Barney Walsh said: “It’s been an incredible experience to join the cast of Casualty alongside Anna, Sarah, JJ and Eddie. It’s a real joy to come to work every day and play Cam.

“I can’t wait for the viewers to meet nurse Cam as he arrives at Holby and very quickly realises he might have bitten off more than he can chew!”

Also joining Casualty is The Bay star Anna Chell as the quick-witted and outgoing Jodie.

Sarah Seggari, best known for her roles in Jerk and I Hate Suzie, will also be playing straight-talking and confident Rida.

And Grantchester star Eddie-Joe Robinson joins as ambitious and glory-hungry Ryan.

The four new characters will be seen on screen in April, and will be accompanied by a familiar face who returns to the hospital to take on a new challenge.

Holby’s fun-loving nurse, turned ward sister, Donna Jackson, played by Jaye Jacobs, will be seen again in the ED department.

Jon Sen, Executive Producer of Casualty for BBC Studios says: “We are thrilled to introduce these exciting new characters to the Casualty fans. Jodie, Cam, Rida and Ryan are a breath of fresh air – bringing hope, heart, wit, warmth and irreverence to the ED. We are sure the audience are going to love them as much we already do.”
