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.
