Matt Bardock to leave Casualty
Matt Bardock, who plays paramedic Jeff Collier, is to leave Casualty later this year after more than seven years in the long-running medical drama.
Matt joined Casualty in Feburary 2007 and has been one of the show's most-loved characters ever since.
Memorable Jeff moments include marrying Dixie to keep her dying dad happy, attending the massacre at Holby College causing him to suffer PTSD, welcoming nephew Jamie to the ED, standing up to his dad and brother over Jamie’s sexuality, and being trapped inside during the Holby prison riots.
Executive Producer Oliver Kent said: “Matt Bardock has given us one of Casualty’s all-time favourite characters and we are sad to see him go. Jeff Collier has been an iconic action hero for seven years and we have been so lucky to have had him on our team for so long. We wish him all the very best for the future.”
