Misfits: In Conversation

9 January 2012

The cast of E4's TV show Misfits (plus its Executive Producer Petra Fried) talk to host Gemma Cairney in a packed Film and Music Arena tent.

E4's drama Misfits has quickly gathered a cult following in its two series. Now returning for a third, the show about a group of unorthodox superheroes recently garnered more mainstream attention after its star Lauren Socha won the award for Actress in a Supporting Role at the BAFTA Television Awards.

At this event, cast members Iwan Rheon, Lauren Socha, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Antonia Thomas and new recruit Joe Gilgun (previously seen as Woody in This is England) were joined by the series Executive Producer Petra Fried. Hosting the talk was Nathan's old college friend and T4 and BBC 1Xtra presenter Gemma Cairney.

Ever wondered what a working day is like in the Misfits schedule? Which rock star inspired Iwan's character Simon? How the shower scene was shot while protecting modesty? Or simply what the most pointless superpower would be? Look no further.

What's great about all the characters is that they're archetypes, but not stereotypical.
