Date - 19 August, 2014, All News Television

Davood Ghadami is now filming as new regular character Khoroush ‘Kush’ Kazemi. Kush will find himself tested when he starts work on Bridge Street market in direct competition with Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace).

EastEnders is one of the UK’s highest-rated programmes, often appearing near or at the top of the week’s BARB ratings. Within eight months of its launch in 1985, it reached the number-one spot in the ratings, and has consistently remained among the top-rated TV programmes in Britain.

Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has said: ‘Davood’s a brilliant actor and a proper gentleman. We’ve had Kush in our minds for a while now – a new leading man to spice up the market and set some female hearts fluttering. And it won’t be long before he has one Walford woman firmly in his sights…’
