Inside EastEnders star Matthew Morrison’s life away from Tara Misu character

What do we know about Matthew Morrison and the actor who plays Felix Baker in EastEnders? Learn everything…

Recently, Felix Baker, the younger son of Mitch’s (Roger Griffiths) estranged brother Avery, was introduced to EastEnders viewers (Omar Lye-Fook).

Felix is also Tara Misu, the first drag queen in Albert Square, and she is already a big hit in Walford.

But who performs the role of Felix in EastEnders, and what other roles has newcomer Matthew Morrison had?

Felix’s actor in Eastenders?

Matthew Morrison, who joined the National Youth Theatre at an early age, plays Felix.

After being cast in EastEnders, Matthew claimed that playing a drag performer was a “luxury.”

He told Digital Spy, “Drag is an artform that I genuinely love and I take my hat off to everyone that performs it.

“My God, I was so happy when I saw myself after doing my makeup! What fun! As you adopt this new character while in drag, your confidence develops.”

The 30-year-old actor also said in a behind-the-scenes video shared to the EastEnders Instagram: “I am lucky to have the opportunity to step into the heels of the feisty Tara Misu as part of my role in EastEnders.

It’s an honor to represent the LGBTQIA+ community and exhibit the innovative drag to Walford inhabitants as well as spectators at home.

Even Drag Race UK season one contestant Vinegar Strokes, who is a real-life drag queen, gave Matthew some advice.

“Beautiful vinegar is also quite informative. Speaking with someone who is experienced and has been performing in drag for a long time is really good “said he.

What other roles has Matthew Morrison had?

Matthew attended Queen Mary University and earned a BSc in Mathematics in 2015 before going on to earn an MSc in Mathematics the following year.

Matthew joined the Queen Mary Theatre Company while a student and participated in various festivals, such as the Edinburgh Fringe.

Additionally, he has acted in several short features, including Youth Condemn and Upon the Edge.
