Justin Bieber mistaken for ‘EastEnders’ star Thomas Law

London: Justin Bieber was astonished when several fans asked for his autograph after they mistook him for a soap actor.

The ‘Baby’ hitmaker has a massive following around the world but it seems his fame hasn`t reached all parts of Britain as a group of teenagers approached the singer because they thought he was 17-year-old actor Thomas Law from EastEnders.

“Some girls asked for my autograph and then said, `We love you in EastEnders`,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

“I’d never heard of the show. So I Googled the actor, and, I guess, there are worse people to be compared with,” he added.
