EastEnders' Bradley Branning actor Charlie Clements is unrecognisable after quitting fame for new job making sushiFebruary 11, 2022
EASTENDERS actor Charlie Clements has revealed he has a new job making sushi.
The star – who played Bradley Branning on the BBC soap – is back working in a kitchen after his latest theatre stint.
The 34-year-old shared a picture of his impressive skills and a huge knife, telling fans it was his “other day job”.
Charlie finished starring in the West End show Mousetrap last summer but has continued to find ways to earn money.
He was previously working as a chef in a garden centre close to his home and during lockdown he ended up tending to the plants when the restaurant closed.
Speaking about his career switch, Bradley said last year: "It was just a way of me supporting the family. At the end of the day the kids and the family come first. I've never been afraid of work and never been work shy."

He added: "Acting is always my first love and will always be my career choice but at the end of the day I've got bills to pay and a family to support like everyone else."
Charlie played lovable Bradley in the soap from January 2006 to February 2010, before he was tragically killed off.
Charlie won the 'Best Exit' prizes at the British Soap and Inside Soap awards following his dramatic roof fall in his final EastEnders scene.
He has since gone on to star as Jake O'Reilly in Casualty in 2013, before starring as Charlie Brackenreid in Murdoch Mysteries.
He's also played a part in drama Elizabeth And Her Enemies.
Charlie previously insisted he'd never make a return to the BBC soap, and told The Sun: "I can’t say I’ve watched EastEnders since I left. I don’t miss it because if I hadn’t left I wouldn’t be doing other shows which I prefer doing.
“They resurrect characters sometimes but even if they wanted Bradley back as a ghost I wouldn’t take up that offer.”
He added: “I didn’t let them kill me off but before I started on the show I always said that I wanted to do four years and that was it. It was my decision to leave.”
