Danny Dyer's on-screen kids Maddy Hill and Sam Strike think the hardman looks like Keira Knightley
Danny Dyer's 'EastEnders' co-stars think he looks like Keira Knightley.
The hardman actor amused Maddy Hill and Sam Strike - who play his on-screen children Nancy and Johnny Carter - by arriving for work in a tight-fitting waistcoat which reminded them of the costumes the British beauty wears in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise.
Maddy said: "Danny came in wearing this waistcoat, which is like a corset. They fitted him in it and he's like, 'Alright, I've put on a few pounds since Christmas.'
"He comes down in it and I go, 'Pop, are you alright? You're not breathing.' And Sam pipes up, 'You look like Keira Knightley in 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.' "
Sam added: "He did look like her."
Maddy continued: "He'll sometimes come down and we'll be like, 'Ooh, he's got the Keira on.' It's so tight."
Danny - who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter - also makes his co-stars laugh with his liberal use of fake tan.
Sam said: "The mahogany - is it a step too far?"
Maddy added to heat magazine: "When he comes in and his hands are a different colour to his face, he's obviously been putting some 'oak varnish' on his face.
"I say, 'You look like David Dickinson, what's going on?' "
