EastEnders fans shocked as they spot Tamwar Masood actor Himesh Patel in BBC drama The Luminaries – The Sun

EASTENDERS fans were shocked as they spotted Tamwar Masood actor Himesh Patel in BBC drama The Luminaries.

The actor starred in the BBC soap for nine years but surprised fans with an appearance in the 2020 six-part murder mini-series.

Set during the 1860 gold rush in New Zealand, fans were extra surprised to see the former Walford mainstay in his waistcoat and period clothing while playing Emery Staines.

One fan wrote: "loved watching The luminaries and couldn't put my finger on 1 of the cast members who I recognised. Took till episode 5 and it twigged its Tamwar Masood in Eastenders"

Another said: "Is the guy in #TheLuminaries Tamwar from Eastenders? I can only see him as being about 15 and a bit geeky!! See-no-evil monkeybut that is definitely not what I’m seeing on screen!"

A third added: "Hadn’t noticed Tamwar from #Eastenders was in this until someone on here mentioned it. Now I can see *only* Tamwar when he appears. Bummer. #TheLuminaries"





The Luminaries is an adaptation of Eleanor Catton's novel of the same name, which won the Man Booker Prize.

The story starts with the death of local man Crosbie Wells (Ewen Leslie), whose body is found surrounded by gold bars.

At the same time, Emery Staines (Himesh Patel) goes missing and young sex worker Anna is arrested for attempted suicide.

In a flashback, Emery meets with Anna on a boat to New Zealand, where they begin a romance together.

But their romance is at risk with suspicious fortune-teller Lydia Wells (Eva Green).

Meanwhile in EastEnders, Tamwar fled to Italy with Nancy Carter.

In February, fans found out through Mick that he and Nancy married in Australia.
