This is Danny Dyer, who was cast as Mick Carter back in 2013. He quickly and unexpectedly became a firm favourite, and was low-key the saviour of EastEnders after a long period of low ratings. Mick is a sensitive and loving family man.
This is his wife, Linda. They were each other's first loves, and have been together since they were 15. Mick adores his wife and 4 kids – literally everything he does is to ensure their happiness.
They've weathered a few storms together during their time on Albert Square.
But the best reflection of Mick's love for Linda was the way he handled her being raped in their own home by his half-brother Dean.
When Linda confided in him, Mick asked no questions, and instead offered his unending love and support. He supported her when she found out she was pregnant – potentially with Dean's baby. He stood by her when she gave evidence in the courtcase, and comforted her when Dean was acquitted.
