Riley Carter Millington is a transgender British actor best known for his role as Kyle Slater on the long-running BBC soap opera EastEnders. He is the first trans man to play a regular transgender character in British soap history and became the first trans man to be named the most influential LGBTI person in the UK in The Independent's 2015 Rainbow List. The paper stated that he received the honor because "Our judges felt his decision to play the character Kyle in EastEnders could help trans people – even save lives – and represents a landmark cultural moment."[1]
