Bradley Branning, played by actor Charlie Clements, was one of Eastenders’ most sweet and innocent characters. So when the viewers were led to believe he was the murderer of Archie Mitchell, we were nothing short of shell shocked.
From the moment Bradley Branning arrived at Albert Square in 2006, he didn’t seem to have it easy. If it wasn’t his turbulent relationship with his cheating father Max, there was always something going wrong with girlfriend, Stacey Slater. But despite their difficulties, it was clear to see that Bradley and Stacey were made for each other.
Bradley’s time on the square came to a dramatic end in 2010, after he plummeted to his death when being chased by the police in question of Archie’s murder. And despite the dramatic scenes we witnessed, it was hard to summon up some sympathy for Bradley after the revelation that he was in fact Archie’s killer.
But our opinions of Bradley were again flipped just 6 months after his death, when it was finally revealed that the once weak and wimpy Bradley was not in fact a cold blooded killer, but instead a mild mannered man who took the blame for Archie’s murder to protect his beloved Stacey.
So in the 6 years since Charlie Clements exited the show, what has the real life Bradley been doing with himself now?
Well today, Charlie Clements is no longer the fresh faced young boy we knew him as, but instead a grown up 29 year old man!
And it’s fair to say that he is barely recognisable from the innocent kid we had grown to love six years ago.
Whilst Charlie may no longer be dominating our T.V. screens every week night, his acting career continues to be a success.
Since leaving Eastenders Charlie has taken up multiple theatre roles, starring in the Meredith Oakes play Faith, and taking on the role of ‘Ray’ in the play, Lone Star.
Not to mention, Charlie has made a return to T.V. on several occasions, where he featured in an episode of BBC’s Causality, alongside CBC’s Murdoch Mysteries, in the 14th episode of the 8th series.
So it would seem that Bradley Branning is having some look after all.
