Danny Dyer has confessed that he wants to be a long-running character on BBC soap 'EastEnders' because he loves his new character
Danny Dyer plans to stay on 'EastEnders' for as long as possible.
The 'Human Traffic' actor joined the BBC One show as family man and landlord Mick Carter last December, and can already see himself becoming a soap stalwart.
Asked what the future holds, he told Attitude magazine: "Stay around in 'EastEnders'. So long as they allow it, I can flit out, go and do a movie, come back to Mick Carter. But at the moment, Mick's in my heart and I want to see where we can go with it..."
Danny, 36, admits he was a bundle of nerves on his first day on set and kept getting locked out of his dressing room.
He laughed: "I couldn't get into my dressing room, I kept forgetting the code. It was like my first day at school. I had to keep going back to the receptionist to say, 'Excuse me, you couldn't write the code down for my door, could you?' "
Danny has been a fan of the long-running soap for years and still can't get over the surreal experience of manning the Queen Vic's bar.
The actor joked: "It's mad. I still can't get my head round it. It's weird because there's f**k-all behind the bar so you struggle to make yourself look busy. There's little bottles of tomato juice that went off in 2004."
