Two new Moons join Eastenders

Two young actors are joining the cast of Eastenders to play Anthony and Tyler, the sons of Eddie Moon (played by David Essex) who is shortly to arrive in Walford.

Youngest son Tyler Moon arrives in Albert Square looking for his dad, with older brother Anthony Moon also stepping onto the Square shortly after.

Tyler is a bloke's bloke; he lives for the weekend, loves a good laugh with his mates and often ends up in trouble, particularly where the ladies are concerned. Anthony is similar to Tyler but at the same time very different. Where Tyler is quick to use his fists to sort things out, Anthony will rely on his brains and natural wit to find a more sensitive solution to any conflict.

Matt Lapinskas aged 22, and a graduate of Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, will play Anthony in his first TV role. He said: "I'm absolutely over-the-moon! It has been my lifetime ambition to be on EastEnders, I have watched it growing up with my nan who is a big fan. I'm so pleased to get my first TV role, I just didn't believe it would be so big. I've met some of the cast I will be working with who were very friendly and welcoming and I can't wait to start filming." Matt is represented by Global Artists.

Tony Discipline, also 22 and another newcomer, plays Tyler, a "bloke's bloke" who lives for the weekend and often ends up in trouble, particularly with "the ladies", said: "It's really exciting to be able to work on a show that you have grown up watching and have followed your whole life. I am very grateful to be given this opportunity and am looking forward to working on the show and becoming an EastEnder!" Tony is represented by Kelly Management.

The soap's executive producer Bryan Kirkwood said: "Both Tony and Matt are fabulous additions to the show. Headed up by David Essex, the Moon clan are on their way to becoming an established family in the Square."
