Lucas Johnson

Lucas Aaron Johnson is a fictional character from the BBC soap opera EastEnders, played by Don Gilet. He made his first on-screen appearance on 3 April 2008. Lucas is introduced as a preacher and estranged father of established character Chelsea Fox. He has a son, Jordan, and goes on to marry Chelsea's mother, Denise. Gilet has described Lucas as having "Jekyll and Hyde" aspects to his character. Despite his religious convictions, Lucas leaves his ex-wife Trina to die, murders Denise's ex-husband Owen, drowns his son's dog, and strangles Denise and locks her in a basement while allowing her family to believe she has killed herself, killing another woman to use as Denise's supposed body. This multi-faceted personality was further explored in the BBC Three special "EastEnders: The Two Faces of Lucas". The character also appears in the spin-off series EastEnders: E20. He departed from EastEnders on 30 July 2010 at the conclusion of his storyline.
