EastEnders actor praises Syed, Christian plot

EastEnders actor Himesh Patel has applauded the BBC soap for tackling the issue of homosexual Muslims through its ongoing Syed and Christian storyline.

Speaking to DS, the teen who plays funnyman Tamwar Masood in the Walford soap said of the storyline: "I think it's brilliant. When first heard about it, I thought it was really brave and a really good step forward in terms of EastEnders as a show and how it's always challenging perceptions."

He added: "I thought it was a really, really great step in the right direction."

On screen, Tamwar's brother Syed is struggling with the conflict between his heart and religion as his feelings for Christian continue to intensify.
