Speaking about joining Casualty, Shaheen said: “I am so delighted to be joining the cast of Casualty and continuing to work with the BBC.

“It’s been a whirlwind few weeks, moving to Cardiff, getting my head into a brand new character and meeting the super lovely and welcoming cast and crew. I’m super excited as I have been a fan of the series for years, so to get to be a part of it is fantastic.”

Casualty’s series producer Lucy Raffety added: “We are delighted that Shaheen is joining the cast of Casualty. He is a huge talent with such a warm screen presence and we know he will bring so much to the show.

“Shaheen plays Marty, who has razor sharp wit, but he soon discovers that being an ED nurse takes more than a cheeky wink and a clever one-liner!”
