EastEnders gets new "force of nature"

Actor Khali Best has joined EastEnders, playing the son of one of the soap's characters.

Best will play Dexter, the 20-year-old son of new character Ava Hartman.

Ava is the long-lost daughter of Cora Cross and makes her debut in EastEnders on November 20.

Dexter arrives in Albert Square in January 2013.

EastEnders' Executive Producer Lorraine Newman said: "Dexter is a force of nature: cheeky, forthright, confident but highly protective of his mum and vice versa. He'll work at the Arches and be a great mate for Jay and Lola. I am sure he'll be hugely popular with the audience."

Best said of his casting: 

"Working with such great actors so early in my career is an amazing opportunity. I am really excited to see what the writers have in store."

oboy..another mouthpiece joins the show..like they don't have enough already. Send Cora packing..she's just too annoying. They should have kept Derrick and got rid of Joey..waste of time watching any scenes he's in.
Kim ... another pain in the ass..why is she still on this show..her and fatboy should hit the road..and AJ..what an annoying character. Zainab too..the mouth that won't quit.
