EastEnders’ Danny Dyer unrecognisable aged 16 in rare snap from ITV show

Danny Dyer has floored fans with his wildly different appearance in a rare snap from one of his breakout TV role.

The ex-EastEnders star is famed for playing pub landlord Mick Carter in the BBC soap, which he left last Christmas in sensational fashion.

But Danny had racked up an impressive list of acting credits before appearing on Albert Square for the first time back in 2013.

And fans couldn't help gasping after seeing an unearthed still from his breakout TV role in ITV crime show Prime Suspect.

Danny was just 16 years of age when he appeared in the programme back in 1993, and he looked almost unrecognisable with long black locks and facial scabs.

These days, Danny looks dapper with his short hair, but back in the day his hair was so long that his tresses were touching his shoulders.

Fans flocked to social media to comment on baby-faced Danny, with one writing: "Don't he look so different."

Another jokingly asked: " Is that Mark (who used to be on EastEnders.)"

Danny starred on a 1993 episode of Prime Suspect, where he was interrogated by Dame Helen Mirren's DCI Jane Tennison.

He recently admitted he lied on his CV and claimed he was a trapeze artist who could "ride a horse" and speak 10 accents.

But his old CV wasn't all made up as he confirmed he was a "proper juggler and all" during his appearance on BBC's The One Show.

Danny told hosts Alex Jones and Jermaine Jenas: "You've got to do a little bit of blagging in life. Some would say I've blagged a whole career, which is an art in itself, in a way."
