With David Essex set to join the cast as Eddie Moon, it won't be long before he's joined by his two on-screen sons, Anthony and Tyler.

Youngest son Tyler Moon, played by Tony Discipline, arrives in Albert Square looking for his dad with older brother Anthony Moon (Matt Lapinskas) also stepping onto the Square shortly after.

The likely lads have lots in common but at the same time they're very different. Tyler lives for the weekend, loves a good laugh with his mates and often ends up in trouble, particularly where the ladies are concerned. Whereas he's quick to use his fist to sort things out, Anthony will look for a more sensitive solution and will rely on his brains and natural wit.

The new Moons

Pictured above are Matt (on the left) and Tony (on the right) with David Essex. Here's what they had to say on joining the cast...

Tony: "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!"

Matt: "I'm absolutely over the moon! It's 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."

Bryan Kirkwood, Executive Producer of EastEnders adds: "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."
