EastEnders Ben Mitchell stars now - devastating recast, famous girlfriend and vile rant
EastEnders this week, when he is assaulted by Lewis.Following an argument with Callum, with both left wondering if this is the end of their relationship, Ben meets up with Lewis for drinks - but the night takes a devastating and harrowing turn.It is one of the many huge storylines that Ben Mitchell has been involved in throughout the years, since arriving on Albert Square in 1996 - including the murder of Heather Trott and the fake death of his mum Kathy Beale.During that time he has also been played by a total of six actors in EastEnders, including current star Max Bowden.Here Daily Star, takes a look at where the actors who played Ben Mitchell are now.Phil Mitchell and Kathy Beale's son Ben arrived on our TV screens in 1996, played by baby Matthew Silver.Matthew featured in over 14 episodes of the soap between 1996 to 1998, before the young child actor was replaced by Morgan Whittle.However, EastEnders is listed as Matthew's only acting role according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), and little has been reported about what he has gone on to do since.In 1999, Morgan Whittle arrived on our TV screens as toddler Ben Mitchell, playing the role for two years until 2001.Although he only starred in 11 episodes of the soap during that time, his stint was one of the most dramatic, after mum Kathy Beale took Ben to South Africa - with viewers later believing that Kathy had died in an accident.Like Matthew Silver, the first actor to play Ben Mitchell, Morgan Whittle's only acting role is the soap according to IMDB - and it is not known what career Morgan later moved into, or what he is up to now.One of the actors to have played Ben Mitchell for the longest period of time was Charlie Jones, who took on the role in 2006 for
