Where Misfits stars are now – Mamma Mia split, famous brother and Hollywood fame

Misfits was one of the most-loved sitcoms around, and even picked up a BAFTA for best drama.

Netflix picked up all five series last year, allowing a whole new audience to binge watch the show some 12 years after it landed on E4.

The show ended up being a major springboard for some of the cast, who have gone on to find major Hollywood success in some cases, and starring in some enormous TV series.

Misfits was based around a group of young offenders who were serving community service.

It all seemed to be going well, until a strange electrical storm left them with special abilities, with everythimg from telepathy to time-jumping.

Where are the cast now?

Robert Sheehan

Robert ended up being one of the breakout stars of the show, after playing the role of Nathan.

Nathan was immortal (at first) and was shown to have disappeared to Vegas just before series three.

Since then he starred on the big screen in 'Killing Bono' alongside Ben Barnes, BBC One drama 'Accused' as well as series two of Sky Atlantic's 'Fortitude' show.

His biggest role has been as the adorable Klaus in Netflix's Umbrella Academy. The show has been a smash hit, and series three is on the way.

He has since turned to writing fiction over lockdown, and has a book out.

The star said he turned to meditation after the "most miserable time of his life" a few years ago, and has also apologised to many of his exes for being "selfish."

Iwan Rheon

Another breakout star, Iwan will be instantly recognisable to millions of people thanks to his role as Ramsay Bolton in Game Of Thrones.

There was controversy over hard-hitting rape scenes in the show, which he described to Metro as "the worst day of my career."

Iwan previously auditioned for the role of Jon Snow, but lost to Kit Harington but they remained friends.

He played Simon in Misfits, who had the power of invisibility and he left at the end of series three.

He also starred in BBC One's 'Our Girl', short-lived ITV sitcom 'Vicious' and 'Urban Myths' as a young Adolf Hitler.

He lives in London with his girlfriend, Zoë Grisedale; their first child was born in August 2018.

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett

Nathan starred as Curtis in the show, who had the power of time manipulation (although he ended up with some weirder powers by the end).

He went on to star in a C4 series called 'Utopia', and performed in the theatre with Andrew Garfield in 'Angels in America'.

.He also appeared in a music video by Years & Years called "Real" released in 2014.

Antonia Thomas

Antonia played the role of Alisha until the end of series three.

She went on to star in Coldplay and Stereophonics music videos, and played the lead in Netflix's 'Lovesick'.

Joseph Gilgun

Joseph appeared as Rudy Wade and was the first of many cast changes and was the "replacement" for Nathan.

His character had multiple personalities. Gilgun aso starred in 'This Is England' and starred in films such as 'Pride' and 'The Last Witch Hunter'.

Gilgun also starred in 'The Infiltrator' film, alongside Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston.

He remains close to many of his This Is England co-stars.

Lauren Socha

Lauren (second from right) originally won a BAFTA award for her role as Kelly in Misfits.

However, her part came to an abrupt end after she was found guilty of aggravated assault.

She did not return for the show's fourth series, in what was described as a "mutual decision."
