Nigel will appear on the show for the first time later this month and BBC executives have confirmed that he will hit the hospital with a bang.
Max is described as a charming, loveable rogue and the doctor that everyone wants to be treated by.
However it appears there may be some history between Max and Dylan who looks less than impressed at his arrival to the ED.

Max will be thrown in at the deep end when he finds himself involved in a life or death situation right from the outset.
Speaking of his brand new role, actor Nigel said: “I’m honoured and grateful to be joining the cast of Casualty. Many pals have donned the famous scrubs over the years and had a ball, so for me it was an easy decision.
“With Max the viewers can expect a character who leads with his heart and not always his head.
“Never afraid to get in a scrape or two, yet loyal to the end even if it means putting himself in danger.”

Jon Sen, the Executive Producer at BBC Studios, added: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Nigel to the cast of Casualty.
“When we conceived the character of Max we knew we needed an actor with craft, charm and charisma and we approached Nigel knowing he’d be the perfect choice.
“We were over the moon when he agreed to play the role and from what we’ve seen so far, Nigel’s creating an iconic character who is set to stir things up within the Emergency Department.”
Casualty airs Saturdays on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
