Willy Roper is a fictional character from the BBC soap opera EastEnders, played by Michael Tudor-Barnes from June 1995 to June 1996.
Villainous Willy was dubbed "Wicked Willy" by the British press after he framed Arthur Fowler for embezzlement, leading to his wrongful imprisonment. The truth was eventually uncovered by Arthur's wife Pauline, though it was too late for Arthur — he died shortly after his release due to a head injury he sustained in a prison riot.
