EastEnders hunk in ‘best shape of life’ after ripped transformation 11 years later

EXCLUSIVE Former EastEnders actor Matt Lapinskas left the role of Anthony Moon back in 2012 and has since changed drastically after going through an epic fitness transformation

Former EastEnders actor Matt Lapinskas looks worlds apart from his character Anthony Moon.

Matt played Anthony between 2011 and 2012 and starred as the brother of Michael (Steve John Shepherd) and Tyler Moon (Tony Discipline).

Gambling addict Anthony was driven out of Walford after losing his money and business to Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman) in a tense poker game.

Matt now looks totally different after an epic fitness transformation – which he said “helps him get jobs”.

Talking about what spurred on his fitness journey, Matt told Daily Star exclusively during a Facebook Live cha t: “So, it was one of those things where as an actor I just decided myself, to be ready for anything.

“You have to be prepared and I feel like I’ve changed a lot since my EastEnders days. I feel like I’ve grown up now, and I’m a man, and my castings are very similar.”

Since then Matt, 33, has gone on to star in Dancing On Ice a year later, coming in second place with partner Brianne Delcourt.

Though more recently he was cast as a villain in Hollyoaks last summer to play criminal Alex Ramsden in June 2022.

He continued: “I feel like if I’m in the best shape constantly, I stand a better chance of getting the role and I was in great shape when Hollyoaks came knocking.

“They flew me out to Mallorca where we shot Gary Lucy’s last episodes and they said ‘Matt, can you take your top off?’ and I was like ‘Yeah, I can’.

“I feel good inside and it’s not about boasting but it inspires me to push on and I love it when I go to the gym it’s my little safe place when I put my music on.

“You get those days when you don’t want to go to the gym but you do it anyways. It’s not about cutting stuff out of your diet and not eating this or that, it’s just knowing nutrition and working hard in the gym.

“And staying healthy up there as well, mentally, so that’s why I do it and my agent is very pleased with me.”
