Is this the end for Leon Cook?

After just 15 short weeks, of seeing Bobby Lockwood on our screens, it looks like this could be the last time we see him for a while, portraying Leon Cook in Casualty.

Leon goes head to head with Iain for the permanent paramedic position, at Holby City Hospital, but only one of them can stay. Leon had a rocky start at the hospital getting on the wrong side of Connie Beauchamp whilst also constantly being nagged at by Jan. 

Make sure you tune into BBC One on Saturday 1st May 2021 at 8:20pm to see Leon’s outcome and catch up on all episodes currently on BBC iPlayer.

Bobby Lockwood joins BBC’s Casualty team as Paramedic Leon Cook.

If you’ve missed Bobby on your screens as much as we have then you won’t have to wait long to see him again. Bobby has joined Casualty as Leon a charming charismatic paramedic.

Bobby Lockwood says: “I have absolutely loved playing Leon and it’s a privilege to be representing paramedics and the NHS at such a critical time. Covid has made our job harder, I can only imagine how difficult it must be for our actual heroes on the front line.”

Loretta Preece, Series Producer of Casualty says: “I am thrilled that Bobby Lockwood is joining our cast as the irrepressible paramedic Leon Cook. Bobby is adorable and has the most extraordinary comic timing. The Casualty building has been abuzz since Bobby joined us and I am confident that the audience will take Leon to their hearts. While Leon often finds himself inadvertently creating comic situations, we also see his character grow through his demanding and emotional work as a paramedic. Leon is a natural with the public, he feels things very deeply and everyone who encounters him seems to be charmed by him…. Except for Connie Beauchamp but that’s another story.”

Catch Bobby in Casualty from 9th January 2021 on BBC One.

Wings needs your support to fly!!!

Bobby’s latest project ‘Wings’ is a new short set in WW2.

Bobby plays Robert, a young family man sent off to war, leaving his wife, Audrey, and young son behind. As a member of the Women’s Land Army, Audrey falls in love with one of the other Land Girls and their relationship blossoms for the duration of the war. However, when the war is over and the men return, so too does normality, and Audrey and Dora’s love must go no further.

The story then picks up in present day… Audrey is brought into her new retirement home by her children and grandchildren. And who should be in the chair beside her, but the woman she had fallen in love with all those years ago. With equal marriage newly legislated, the women can finally show each other the commitment they longed for in their younger days.

‘Wings’ is a film in support of Gay Rights, which is particularly keen to tell the story of women in a period when being gay was widely unaccepted. It aims to give a voice to the once voiceless characters of our past!
