Danny Walters, who plays Keanu Taylor in EastEnders, has shared a photo from his first role since leaving the soap.
The actor is playing Beast in Beauty and the Beast at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.
He posted a picture mid-scene to his Instagram page.
He captioned the post: "'So you thought you'd break into my castle and steal my food, eh?!'
"Beauty and the Beast 2019 - Aylesbury Waterside Theatre @aylesburywaterside.theatre.
"What do you think the beast would say? Caption below."
Friends and fans rushed to comment on the post.
EastEnders actress Maisie Smith, who plays Tiffany Butcher, wrote: "Take it you're the one on the left."
One fan said: "Oi, get out of my pub".
A second said: "Ahh it was so good!"
The show is running from December 6 2019 until January 5 2020.
Danny's role in the pantomime is his first since filming his exit from EastEnders.
Last month it was announced Danny had quit his role as Keanu in the BBC soap.
The actor told Digital Spy: "It has been a joy to play Keanu Taylor for the last two and a half years.
"I have been blessed to work with the most fantastic creative team.
"I will miss them and my fellow actors immensely.
"EastEnders will always hold a special place in my heart and I will continue to be an avid fan."
His character is currently in the middle of a huge storyline.
With Sharon being Louise's stepmother, it's set to be a dramatic Christmas as the truth comes out.
What do you think will happen to Keanu when the truth comes out?
