EastEnders Dr Al In Supernatural
The 29-year-old, who plays Dr Al Jenkins in the soap had only been in LA for a week when he was chosen to play Baldur, the Norse god of light in the cult series.
His last scenes on the square were aired a few days ago.
He told Digital Spy: “It’s fantastic being a part of such a popular show and exciting to be in the American arena. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
The fifth season of Supernatural is expected to be its last though creator Eric Kripke has suggested a new season is not completely out of the question.
