Meet the new Misfit

Shooting started today on the third series of E4's BAFTA-winning Misfits. With Robert Sheehan (Nathan) having left the cast due to film commitments, the new Misfit donning the orange jumpsuit, is Rudy, played by 27 year old Joe Gilgun.

New kid on the block Rudy gets a rude awakening in his first few days of community service, learning that with the keys to the infamous locker comes a great deal of running and screaming and, in some instances, bloodletting. But that really is the least of his worries. More pressing is just how to keep his secret superpower, well, secret. And is it super? As in from the A- List?

Joe, originally from Chorley, Lancashire, started acting as a child when he attended the Oldham Theatre Workshop and was then cast as tearaway Jamie Armstrong in Coronation Street, a role he played for four years. He then went on to play loveable rogue Eli Dingle in Emmerdale, and more recently starred in This is England and This Is England 86 as Woody.
