Remember demon child Damien Trotter from British comedy classic Only Fools and Horses?
The annoying little brat best-known for his chunky gold chains and for his ability to wind up his Uncle Rodney.
In the show Rodders could see straight through Damien’s devilish antics, while his doting parents Del-Boy and Raquel only saw their little angel.
Rodney even went as far to compare Damien to the character of the same name from 70’s horror flick The Omen, a movie about the son of Satan being accidentally adopted by a regular family.
Although Damien was played by six different actors during the series’ run, it is Benjamin Smith who’s acting career has really taken off since the show’s run ended. Thankfully, he’s also a lot better behaved in real life than his TV counterpart, and since 2003 has featured in several popular shows.
Here he is looking all grown-up in The Accused.
A year after appearing in Only Fools and Horses, Ben played Reece Keys in the TV film Passer By, also starring James Nesbitt. He has also starred in Dr Who, The Hustle and The Bill, as well as making brief appearances in Silent Witness, Doctors and Holby City.
In 2008, the cockney lad joined the cast of Eastenders for four episodes, taking on the role of Tegs, the intimidating leader of a gang called E20. After causing mayhem in Albert Square, Tegs stabbed series regular Jay Mitchell and was arrested.
Last year, Ben appeared in Manchester-based crime drama No Offense and played a solider in TV short Native. His next project is another short coming next year, Come Out of the Woods, in which Ben has a lead role.
We can’t wait!
