BBC One’s ‘EastEnders’ introduced yet another new Asian character in Monday night’s episode.

Aaron Thiara will be playing the role of Ravi Gulati, who was introduced as a jail mate in Phil Mitchell’s prison storyline. Thiara will eventually become a Walford resident, as the son of Ranveer (Anil Goutam).

Thiara said, “My heart is filled with immense gratitude to be joining such an iconic show, working alongside a stellar cast and a remarkable production team.”

“It’s a very proud moment for me and my family. This is a wondrous opportunity to approach as an actor, and I can’t wait for people to meet Ravi on screen and witness his roller-coaster of a journey!”

Executive producer Chris Clenshaw added, “Ravi is captivating, cunning and dangerous, and can go from pleasant to menacing with very little warning – unlike Aaron, who’s a wonderful addition to the EastEnders cast.

“We’re all excited to see Aaron bring the character to life and there’s plenty of drama and shocking twists in store – wherever Ravi goes, trouble follows.”
