Bobby Lockwood joins Casualty team as new Paramedic Leon North

With Casualty set to return in the new year (January 2 at 19:35pm to be exact), the show has announced a brand-new casting in the form of Bobby Lockwood, who will play Paramedic Leon North.

Bobby is most known for appearing in CBBC’s Wolfblood and BBC Three’s Uncle.

Leon is described as ‘handsome, charming, loveable… and could possibly get on your nerves’ and will be appearing in the show after the coronavirus special returning episode.

Leon cares so much about what other people think, and puts 110% effort in with everyone he meets. However, his endless excitement can get in the way of knowing exactly where to stop, and he can sometimes brush his friends and colleagues up the wrong way!

On joining the show, Bobby said ‘I have absolutely loved playing Leon and it’s a privilege to be representing paramedics and the NHS at such a critical time. Covid has made our job harder, I can only imagine how difficult it must be for our actual heroes on the front line.’

Casualty returns to BBC One on Saturday 2nd January at 7:35pm.
