Since then, Dyer has appeared in a wide variety of films and TV shows, as well as several plays directed by the 2005 Nobel Laureate, Harold Pinter, with whom he struck up an unlikely friendship. He has also presented his own documentary series, Danny Dyer’s Deadliest Men, in which he offered insight into the lives of some of Britain’s most frightening and feared gangsters, hardmen, and ex-convicts.
He is perhaps now best known for playing Mick Carter in EastEnders, the landlord of the iconic Queen Victoria pub. Danny has confessed to hiding his acting ambitions from his friends as a teenager after receiving homophobic abuse, despite not being gay, after they learned that he had been to acting classes.

Why is Danny Dyer leaving EastEnders, how long was he on it for, who was his character, when did he join?
He waltzed into Walford in 2013 and has enjoyed plenty of plaudits for his performance as the Queen Vic’s landlord, Mick Carter. However, Dyer was forced to take a break from the soap in February 2017 to help him deal with personal issues, mood swings, and a recurrent alcohol problem.
Although he has since returned, there is still some doubt as to whether he will sign a new contract when his current deal runs out.
What TV shows has Danny Dyer been on?
The British star made his name, and defined his trademark laddish role, in football films, such as Mean Machine and The Football Factory, as well as gangster films, such as The Business.
However, he has also appeared in several high profile British TV shows, in cameos and longer term roles, including A Touch of Frost, The Bill, Foyle’s War, Hotel Babylon, Skins, Casualty, and Hollyoaks Later.
Danny was the subject of an episode of the popular BBC ancestral show Who Do You Think You Are? in 2016. He was baffled to discover during the course of the show that his 14th great grandmother was Elizabeth Seymour, the sister of Jane Seymour, who was the third of King Henry VIII’s six wives. The Seymour family descended from Edward III, the King of England during the early fourteenth century, making Danny Dyer a direct descendant of royalty.
