Luke’s death wasn’t only a surprise to viewers – but to actor Adam too.

The mystery of Luke Browning’s disappearance has haunted viewers ever since he was bundled into the back of a white van, never to be seen again.

he mystery of Luke Browning’s disappearance has haunted viewers ever since he was bundled into the back of a white van, never to be seen again.

However, EastEnders fans finally got their answer last week as Phil Mitchell revealed that Luke had been killed by gangster Aidan Maguire’s goons.

But, even more surprisingly, actor Adam Astill had no idea that his character had been killed off until he saw the scenes on screen.

Speaking to OK! Online , he said: “If I’m honest I’ve only just caught up on Friday’s episode so I’ve only just found out. My reaction? Ouch!”

During Friday’s episode, Phil confronted Aidan in the Queen Vic as he revealed that the teeth the gangster had given him in the box belonged to Luke.

Aidan had said that Phil had told him to “do him”.

But Phil replied: “No, I told you to scare Luke off, not to kill him.”

Soap star Adam quipped that he had “wondered if Luke died before or after they removed his teeth”.

He added: “I found out with the rest of the viewers. I only knew what was in the script, that Luke got bundled into the van and that’s the last we saw of him.”

Talking about the flurried reaction to finding out where Luke had gone, he said: “I sort of assumed [viewers would] just think he got what he deserved but it’e s nice to hear he hasn’t just been forgotten about, even though he did turn out to be horrible, as I really enjoyed playing him.”
