Steve McFadden, the star of BBC’s EastEnders, has been docked five points and fined £580. After speeding on his moped, the Phil Mitchell actor was fined.
The soap actor has been fined £440, plus costs of £100 and a victim services fee of £44. His driver’s license has also been docked five points.
The 62-year-old originally appeared on the serial in 1990, and as Walford’s loveable rogue, he has made quite an impression on the British people since then.
This Thursday, he appeared in front of Bromley magistrates. According to the Sun, he was pulled over by police with a speed gun near his home. In October, he was claimed to be riding his scooter at 35 mph in a 20 mph zone.
In the BBC serial drama EastEnders, the 62-year-old started playing Phil Mitchell. He first appeared in EastEnders in 1990, alongside Ross Kemp, who played Phil’s younger brother Grant Mitchell.
After a police officer sold details about him to the tabloid, he sued the Metropolitan Police and the News of the World in 2014. “I am especially disturbed that a police officer sold my privacy to a tabloid newspaper for profit,” McFadden said. I believe that the payment of damages and public apology will go a long way toward ensuring that my and others’ privacy is respected in the future. I’m relieved to have been found not guilty and to be able to put this incident behind me.
