The shop manager, Anthony Moon (played by Matt Lapinskas), will depart screens in the coming weeks after less than a year in Walford. Matt Lapinskas confirming his exit, said: “I’m having a fantastic time working on EastEnders and playing the role of Anthony Moon. Working with David Essex, Tony Discipline and the EastEnders cast has been an absolute pleasure.“.
Matt then went on and said: “Although I will really miss EastEnders and everyone involved, I am very excited about future projects and what is next for me as an actor.”
Anthony turned up on Albert Square last July, just a few weeks after his dad Eddie and brother Tyler Moon.
