Paul Nicholls to join cast of Holby City

Law & Order: UK actor will make his debut in the medical drama in May

The BBC has announced that actor Paul Nicholls will be joining the cast of medical drama Holby City.


Nicholls, who was last seen in ITV1’s Law & Order: UK, will play experienced male nurse Simon Marshall in the drama series, a character unafraid to stand up to his superiors.

In a statement Nicholls said: “I’m delighted to be joining as a guest on Holby City, it’s a programme I’ve always admired and I’m thrilled to be part of this particular storyline. Simon is a confident guy and is sure to be in his element. I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Holby’s executive producer, Jonathan Young, expressed his satisfaction with the casting, saying: “Paul is an actor with a fantastic pedigree and we are delighted he’ll be joining Holby City for a few months. I can’t give too much away at the moment, but his character is definitely going to have an impact and ruffle a few feathers.”

As well as Law & Order: UK, Paul Nicholls has appeared in numerous other series, including EastEnders, Midsomer Murders and Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
