Who is Sean and Stacey Slater's dad and how did he die?
Tragedy and strife runs deep in the history of the Slater clan, and Sean and his sister Stacey are no exception.
Sean Slater (Rob Kazinsky) has recently made his return back to Albert Square and his arrival hasn’t been short of drama and heartbreak.
Him and his little sister Stacey (Lacey Turner) are no strangers to hardship, having lost their father when they were young.
So who is their late dad, and how did he die?
How did Sean and Stacey Slater’s dad Brian die?
Sean and Stacey Slater’s father is Brian Slater, who has never actually been seen on the soap, except in photographs.
This is because Brian died at the hands of his son Sean back when Sean was just a teenager, and before the troubled youth had ever appeared on EastEnders.
Even though Sean never meant to kill his father, after he punched his dad in an argument, poor Brian ended up suffering a brain hemorrhage and died the next day.
This tragedy caused Sean to run away and join the army when he was only 16, and arguably set him on the destructive path he’s been on ever since.
Sean and Stacy also have three formerly secret half siblings through their dad: Kyle, Siobhan and Shannon.
Kyle (Riley Carter Millington), was originally called Sarah and was the first transgender character ever in a British soap opera to be played by a transgender actor.
Now that Sean’s back in town and feeling intense remorse for all his wrongdoings over the years, he sadly and very wrongly thinks that suicide is his only way out, and seeks to make amends for all that he’s done before he takes his own life.
Rob Kazinsky exclusively told Metro.co.uk: ‘The week progresses when Sean enters with this idea of what he is going to do.
He knows there is a finite amount of time for him to say what he needs to say – he doesn’t want to be here anymore. He is getting things off his chest and reaching that point when he is more and more ready to go.’
Will all the psychological trauma that Sean has endured, coupled with his guilt, combine to push Sean over the edge? Or will he be able to accept help in his hour of need and choose to live?
You’ll have to tune in to find out…
EastEnders is next on tonight, 2 May, on BBC One at 7:30pm.
