Ben Mitchell actor looks completely unrecognisable after quitting EastEnders

He's ditched the glasses for a new role on the West End.

Harry Reid - probably best known to you for playing Ben Mitchell on EastEnders - has ditched his trademark nerdy look as he starts a new role in a London theatre.

The 25-year-old actor will play Leonard Vole in a new production of Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution.

In new promotional pics, he has dropped his EastEnders character's signature thick-framed jam jars and has grown some stubble on his chin.

It comes after he left the soap in January, following a heist storyline. Following the final ep airing, he thanked fans for their support on social media.

Speaking in a video at the time, he said: "Hello everyone, just a quick message. I wanted to say a few words because my last episode of EastEnders is going on air in 10 minutes.

"I just wanted to say thank you really, thank you to everyone who's been supporting me during my time on EastEnders. To the fan groups and all the collages they've done and the videos. You know everyone on here on Instagram and Twitter - on all social media that's really documented my time on there and I really appreciate it."
