Sean Slater is the older brother of Stacey Slater and son of Jean Slater and Brian Slater. Good looking with an eye for mischief, it was obvious that the loud mouthed and difficult to handle Stacey Slater was Sean's sister.iT
He was the husband of Roxy Mitchell and the apparent father of her daughter Amy. After it is revealed that Jack Branning is Amy's father, Sean attempts to run away with Roxy and Amy. Sean and Roxy fall through thin ice on a lake, Roxy's sister Ronnie Mitchell rescues Roxy as she thinks Sean has drowned but he comes up and walks off leaving Roxy with Amy.
On 17th January 2019 It was annouced that Robert Kazinsky respired his role for a short stint set to air In spring of that year Sean made a return on the 26th April 2019. For a full six episodes leading him to depart again on 6th May 2019.
Sean was always popular with the female inhabitants on The Square and knew he could have any woman he wanted, but his womanizing often landed him in hot water. After cheating on Chelsea with her step-sister Carly, she framed him for assault… there’s nothing like a woman scorned!
Sean then fell pretty hard for Tanya after lending her a shoulder to cry on after Max’s affair with Sean’s little sis Stacey. But after their plot to bury Max alive went awry, their relationship (unsurprisingly) fell apart.
The lady we all think of when it comes to Sean though is of course, Roxy. When she fell pregnant Sean assumed that he was the father, and he finally saw a path to a happy life with a wife and baby…
But happy paths are hard to come by in Walford!
On Christmas Day he pulled a cracker and BANG he found out Amy was in fact Jack’s. A devastated Sean went on the rampage, which ended in an icy lake. A soggy Sean was last seen melting away into the darkness leaving Amy and Roxy safe but alone.
It was announced in January 2019 that Sean would be returning to EastEnders later that year.
