Carving my own path on EastEnders, with a dad who played in the Premier League and a brother at Chelsea

Introduction to this article:

The newest addition to the Eastenders cast, Kitty Castledine, brings with her a family history of fame and talent. The 21-year-old actress made her debut on the popular soap opera as Penny Branning, the daughter of Jack Branning and cousin to Lauren Branning. However, what many fans may not realize is the impressive sports and entertainment background of her family.

The Castledine Family Legacy

Kitty Castledine comes from a family with deep roots in both football and television. Her father, Stewart Castledine, had a successful nine-year career playing for Wimbledon, which included six seasons in the Premier League. Meanwhile, her mother, Lucy Alexander, is a former host of the popular show “Homes Under The Hammer.” This background in sports and entertainment has undoubtedly influenced Kitty’s own career in acting.

A Rising Football Star

Not only does Kitty have a successful father, but her brother Leo Castledine is also making a name for himself in the world of football. The 19-year-old, who currently plays for Chelsea, previously played for Wimbledon before joining the Blues’ U21 side in 2020. Leo has already earned caps for England’s U19s and has high hopes for his future in football.

Potential Debut for Chelsea

Leo Castledine’s talent has not gone unnoticed, and he may soon have the opportunity to make his first-team debut for Chelsea. As an unused substitute in several of Mauricio Pochettino’s squads, Leo could finally step onto the field when Chelsea takes on Preston in the FA Cup third round. His potential debut is an exciting prospect for both the Castledine family and Chelsea fans alike.
