New Casualty trailer sees Emmerdale star Rik Makarem join the cast

The actor - best known for playing Nikhil Sharma - will make his debut in the Holby ED this autumn


Former Emmerdale star Rik Makarem has joined BBC1 medical drama Casualty to play new medic Sebastian Grayling.


Makarem – best known for playing Nikhil Sharma on the Dales-set soap – can be seen making his debut in a new trailer released this evening. His new character looks set to clash with Holby ED regular Dylan Keogh in scenes to be shown this autumn.


Among the other highlights featured in the promo are further drama for Connie (who has to deal with further worries about daughter Grace in the aftermath of the recent helicopter crash) and a burgeoning romance for Charlie and Duffy.

There’s also romantic heartache for Robyn, the introduction of David’s son and – of course – enough stunts to fill your Saturday nights between now and Christmas.
