Rohan Gotobed, a first year Drama and English Literature student at UEA, swapped Hogwarts for the hospital on Saturday night when he starred in the 'Thirty Years' episode of BBC One's Casualty.
The 18-year-old, orginally from Poole, Dorset played patient Rhys Morry in the popular BBC drama, which follows the lives of staff at the Holby City Hospital emergency room.
He played a character with severe epilepsy and is seen having a seizure at the start of the episode.
After being taken into the A&E department at Holby City doctors debate whether Rhys should have neurosurgery.
Rohan said: 'Being able to work on Casualty was a wonderful opportunity and my weeks on set were a delight.
'It was an honour to bring Rhys' story to the screen and I really hope that I did the character and his condition justice.
'I have seen some positive reactions on social media, which I think really vindicates how much effort the entire cast and crew put in.'
