Iwan Rheon clearly loves playing dark, twisted characters. He’s best known for playing the sadistic Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones, and he’ll shortly be playing young Hitler on the satirical British TV movie Adolf the Artist.

When Rheon was first cast on Misfits as awkward, introverted Simon, the original plan was that this role would be more of the same for him: Simon, whose repressed rage and loneliness is so profound that it turns him invisible, was supposed to go dark and betray his fellow Misfits.

But showrunner Howard Overman liked Rheon’s performance so much that he decided not to make him a villain. Instead, Simon tries to become a hero, and the character arc that ensues is one of the most purely tragic storylines on the show.

To see his best episode, check out: 2.03, which introduces us to Simon’s noble future self — and shows off Rheon’s ability to dramatically change his appearance almost entirely by dint of changing his posture.
