EastEnders star Rob Kazinsky is perhaps best known for his role as Sean Slater and now looks completely different since quitting the soap and launching a career in the US
EastEnders star Rob Kazinsky looks worlds away from soap icon Sean Slater.
The actor, 40, made his first appearance as Stacey Slater’s (Lacey Turner) older brother in 2006 and was a main character until his departure in 2009. He’s made a number of appearances since his first exit, returning in 2019 after mum Jean (Gillian Wright) was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
He made his way back to Walford once again in November 2021 after Jean enlisted his help to get rid of Eve (Heather Peace), who at the time, Jean didn’t trust. Sean hasn’t been seen since April 2022, but fans are always hoping for another return.
Over one year later, Rob sports a different look from his EastEnders day. Sean was known to be relatively clean shaven with stubble on his cheeks and chin, but this is no longer the case.
The actor has allowed his facial hair to grow and rocks a full beard and moustache. Rob also wears silver-rimmed glasses, something fans aren’t used to him wearing.
40, now sports a very different look from his days on EastEnders as he now shows off a shaven look to his sideburns. After first bidding farewell to Albert Square, Rob began launching his US career.
In 2013, he portrayed Chuck Hansen in Pacific Rim alongside Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba. The same year, he starred as Macklyn Warlow in the sixth season of HBO’s True Blood.
In 2019, he joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he appeared as Don in Captain Marvel. The former soap star also played the part of Perini in Netflix’s The Gray man, also starring Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Rege-Jean Page and Ana de Armas.
Earlier this year, the actor vowed to undergo a fitness transformation for a new role. Alongside a shirtless snap, he wrote: “I have a great job coming up if the strikes come to an end and I’ve decided to get into superhero shape, without drugs, without PEDs, without help, just a 40 year old fat b*****d making do with what I have still going for me.”
He added: “Here is day one, my starting off point. I weigh 220lbs, I’m at 19.7% body fat. I turn 40 in a few months and one thing I’ve learned is that it’s getting harder and harder every single day to train and recover, I can’t do things like I did in my 20s, so what’s the plan?”
