Anthony Moon to exit EastEnders; how should he go?
News and gossip from the world of soap
Antiques dealer Anthony Moon is to leave EastEnders. The character, played by actor Matt Lapinskas, will head out of Albert Square after less than a year.
Confirming his exit, Matt said: "I'm having a fantastic time working on EastEnders and playing the role of Anthony Moon. Working with David Essex, Tony Discipline and the EastEnders cast has been an absolute pleasure."
He added: "Although I will really miss EastEnders and everyone involved, I am very excited about future projects and what is next for me as an actor."
They arrived in a blaze of glory, but the extended Moon family is rapidly shrinking. Anthony's dad Edddie was played by 70s pop star David Essex; he quit after only five months in the role.
Anthony's brother Tyler, played by actor Tony Discipline, remains in the soap. However, I personally can't see him becoming a longstanding member of the cast. The extended Moon family hasn't quite bedded into the show as convincingly as, say, Jamie Foreman as Derek Branning.
Now that's how you make an instant impression.
But how should Anthony Moon make his exit? Knowing EastEnders writers, they'll probably drum up an incredibly dramatic (and, no doubt, improbable) departure as a ratings boost; don't be surprised if Anthony turns into a serial killer.
So what are your thoughts on EastEnders losing another Moon? And how would you write him out? Share your view by leaving a comment.

i think he will be banged up for heathers murder as there's no sign of Ben leaving
its a joke, such a small square and they cant catch a killer
now that's so far fetched in my eyes
the amount of murders that has happened in that square and nobody gets caught
what a joke
on top of that when they arrested billy why did they not search the house where the
picture was hidden
its not rocket science to look under a bed is it
joke joke joke
Sorry, but he's a boring character who has had crap storylines. I can't imagine him going out in a blaze of glory. Bring back Eddie and the brother with Downs Syndrome.
Derek will probably buy him a pair of concrete boots for daring to touch his baby girl lol
