It caused a state of frenzy among fans when Bleu Landau was cast as Denny Rickman in the BBC soap ‘EastEnders’, replacing Harry Hickles. Bleu's performance in the show immediately won the hearts of the long time fans of the series, who reacted to his portrayal of the character positively. Some fans of the show had been unhappy with the previous cast, saying that he didn't seem to enjoy his role well enough and some thought he was too posh to portray a convincing working class Londoner. Thus most fans welcomed the change in the cast, and were very satisfied with Bleu's portrayal of the character of Denny. They even pointed out that Bleu had more similarities in appearances to the actor who played his father in the show.
The character of Denny was featured marginally in the show in the few months before Bleu was cast to play the character. The recast made fans hopeful that the new child actor will get more screen time following his addition to the cast.

Some even opined that it must be difficult to be a child actor on the show, given the huge number of actors who had been replaced. Fans were also curious as to why Harry Hickles had to leave the show, as there was not any official information available regarding that. In any case, it makes his fans happy that Bleu has been playing the character of Denny successfully for over a year now.
