EastEnders reveals Brian Conley's story as he arrives as Sonia's dad
Brian Conley makes his highly-anticipated EastEnders debut next week.
The actor will portray Terry Cant – long-lost father of current mainstay Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy).
Sonia returns from Dubai with gifts for Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero) and Tiffany Butcher-Baker (Maisie Smith) in scenes next week.
Dotty, however, isn’t pleased, and berates Sonia for spending Dot Branning’s (June Brown) cash. The young woman calls Sonia a middle-aged fun sponge, but little does she know Sonia has overheard!
Meanwhile, Terry asks Rainie Highway (Tanya Franks) for directions to Albert Square.
Sonia is livid when Denise Fox (Diane Parish) reveals that Dotty is a hostess at Ruby’s, and she wastes little time in storming round to the club to give the young woman a piece of her mind!
She makes it clear that she simply will not stand for her talking to old men, and looks towards Terry, who is entertaining a crowd!
Sonia is mortified when she later spots Terry in the pub, and therefore she hightails it out of there. Terry, meanwhile, asks for Sonia, telling Tiff and Denise that he has been looking for her after she sent him a letter, confirming that he is her dad!
Sonia, upon leaning of her dad’s presence in the Square, is unimpressed. He explains how he came to acquire the moniker ‘Rocky,’ but Sonia starts to test him.
Later, Tiffany sings Rocky’s praises, but Sonia remains unconvinced, prompting Dotty to intervene. She tells Sonia that she would give anything to talk to her dad again, arguing that she should give Rocky a chance.
Will she do so?
‘As you can imagine being a Londoner and now being part of EastEnders is such an incredible moment for me,’ Brian Conley said upon news of his casting.
I know for sure my dad’s looking down from above and saying: “Good on yer son!”
