    Default Derek Branning aka Jamie Foreman

    Never liked this actor. Looks like a Bulldog. However, the nostalgia connection is this:

    He reminds me of Baron Sylas Greenback in Dangermouse.

    He gives me the willies too, wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him type. poor sod, he could be a really nice guy, but I'd run a mile if I saw him.

    Yes, I remember he had some actual Gangland links, having looked it up his Dads Freddie Foreman, 'associate' to the Krays and he was involved in many murders as well as the infamous Krays 'job' on Jack The Hat McVittie....so I agree, in real life he must be a nasty bloke if crossed. What surprises me is how a mobsters son could get into acting....probably put a gun to the casting directors heads....

    Anyhow, anyone else notice the resemblance I was on about?

    Yes, deffo looks like Greenback.
    Not so much when he was younger, but as he's aging, he's starting to look like his Dad

    Didn't know who Derek Branning was but looked up his pic and know who you mean now. He was interviewed on something recently and came across as a right geeezah, 'boy done good went into acting instead of dodgy stuff' type and was talking all about his dad and the East End. Didn't warm to him. Suspiciously black hair for a guy his age. I've not seen him acting.

    I really rate Jamie in EastEnders - I don't like his character or what he stands for, but phew sure Jamie is an amzing actor and one of the most evil evil characters ever in EastEnders. Great acting by him.

    Mkaes him fit the part even betyter still I think though! Derek has to be possibly 2nd only to Nick Cotton in terms of "EastEnders Crocks, Rouges and Villans" I think. He even makes Dan Sullivan (for al he was nasty etc etc) look innocent beyond doubt!
