Charlie rose to fame on Britain’s Got Talent
Charlie Wernham, the star of EastEnders, has been in almost every popular British television show.
He debuted as a stand-up comedian on Britain’s Got Talent in 2008.
Charlie’s clever jokes had the judges at the moment, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, and Piers Morgan, in stitches.
With his remarks, he even’made her moan,’ according to Amanda.
All three judges voted him through, and he advanced to the semi-finals, where his adventure came to an end.
But did you know that he made his acting debut a year later in one of the most well-known British comedies?
The teen actor appeared in an episode of The Inbetweeners from season two. Wernham portrayed a 12-year-old who, courtesy to Jay (James Buckley), became embroiled in a long-running conflict with Simon (Joe Thomas).
Charlie pushed Simon over at a disco and kicked him many times while he was on the floor, bringing the feud to a head. Is there anything more authentic to the Inbetweeners than this?
Charlie is practically unrecognizable in his most recent role. In EastEnders, he now plays Aaron Monroe, a brash businessman who is causing havoc on Albert Square.
If you’ve ever watched Jack Whitehall’s BBC Three series Bad Education, you’ll recognize him as the cheeky Mitchell.
He also starred in Hollyoaks for three years, until 2016, as Robbie Roscoe.
As he joined the EastEnders cast, he said: “It was always a childhood dream of mine to be in EastEnders.
“It’s a show that’s constantly on TV in my household as my family are massive fans so it’s always been close to my heart.”
