Davood Ghadami: British Soap Awards nomination

Date - 27 April, 2015, All News Awards Television

Davood Ghadami has been nominated for a British Soap Award this year in the Best Newcomer category. He plays Khoroush ‘Kush’ Kazemi in popular BBC One soap Eastenders.

Kush has the loudest mouth and widest smile on the market, but behind his mischievous bravado is an equally big heart.

Kush is loud, fun, friendly and a real fitness fanatic! He’s always been health-conscious, but the harrowing experience of losing his wife made Kush feel that his life was out of his control. The order and structure that Kush’s gym workouts give him help him feel at ease in an otherwise chaotic and unpredictable world.

Catch the British Soap Awards on May 16th on ITV.


Davood plays series regular 'Kush' Kazemi in BBC's EastEnders for which he won 'Best Newcomer' at the TV Choice Awards. He was also nominated for 'Best Newcomer' and 'Best Actor' at the British Soap Awards.
