The BBC today announced Marc Elliott, best known for his role as Syed Masood in EastEnders, as the latest recruit to tread the wards of BBC One’s long-running medical drama Holby City.

Marc, who has already started filming with the team, will play dashing new doctor Issac Mayfield, who immediately catches the eye of fellow doctor Dominic Copeland (David Ames), while on Keller Ward.

In addition to his role on EastEnders, Marc has previously appeared in The Bill, Midsomer Murders, and has appeared in various West End productions. Newcomer Marc says: “I am so pleased to be joining the lovely and incredibly welcoming cast of Holby City, and very much looking forward to playing this complex and flawed character. My twin sister was born with the brains, and has been working as a fully qualified veterinary surgeon for some years now. I am chuffed that I'm finally going to be able to compete, if only in the pretend world!”

Oliver Kent, Executive Producer for Holby City, says: “We are delighted to welcome Marc to team Holby, and we can’t wait to see him striding the wards of the Hospital. Charming, confident and twinkly, Issac Mayfield will make a handsome addition to the Keller team and will quickly brighten up Dominic’s life…”

Marc will be filming with the Holby team for six months, appearing on screen from June.
