EastEnders Danny Dyer hints Mick will be killed off as he teases epic exit
EastEnders star Danny Dyer has revealed his character, Mick Carter could be killed off.
The actor, 44, has played Mick on the BBC soap since 2013 when he arrived with his family on Christmas day.
It was confirmed in January that the pub landlord would be leaving Albert Square after nine years, but the exact timing and nature of his departure is yet to be revealed.
Danny confessed that his exit is already in discussion and he is certain he wants it to be "epic."
The actor told The Sun: "There’s been a discussion about what we’re gonna do. I might be killed off, I might not."
"I just want to go out in a huge, epic way. I don’t want to be in the back of a cab," he added.
The soap star admitted he wants his exit to get people talking and revealed his plans to nab a particular memento from set.
"I don’t want a heart attack because of high cholesterol. I want to go out and I want to get people talking about it. So, yeah, it’s gonna be huge," he said.
He continued: "I might nick a stool out of the Vic. I have already got a stool up in my dressing room. I’ll get the cast to sign it and I’ll take it."
The Football Factory actor revealed that he feels it's time to move on from his role in the soap, but admitted he's "loved every second" of playing the beloved character.
He quipped: "It’s such an iconic job and I’ve loved every second of it. It’s been amazing. It’s been nearly ten years though, you know?"
"It’s time to move on now. I’ll be very sad. I will be. It’s an emotional thing, you become very attached. But it’s time to roll the dice," the dad-of-three added.
Referencing the timing of his exit, Danny teased: "Maybe it’ll come out at Christmas. When they get it right there ain’t no better show on the television."
At the second season launch of Sky's The Flight Attendant, Danny admitted he was grateful for the storylines he's been a part of, particularly involving his on-screen son, Johnny, which he believed changed lives.
"Mick Carter was different, he was an alpha male who wore a pink dressing gown. His son came out to him as gay, and he said, ‘It’s alright boy, I’ll give you a cuddle’.
"I think he changed a lot of young gay men’s lives who came out the next day."
Danny has signed up to host upcoming Netflix gameshow, Cheat, alongside comedian Ellie Taylor and has joined forces with daughter Dani Dyer to front a set of travel shows for E4.
