the misfits cast

I wasn’t, you know, Mr. Popular. I was somewhere in the middle ground. I was quite alternative, the things I liked to do. Skateboarding, at the time. Playing in a band as opposed to playing in the rugby team. You know, that kind of thing.


Ruth Negga for Irish Tatler (Feb. 2013)

Negga’s a powerful actor, the voice low and layered with bite. Her expression, in neutral, has a sort of stoic hurt to it, making her an ideal tragedian. And it can’t go unmentioned that she’s stunning to look at: half Irish, half Ethiopian, massive eyes, pronounced chin and cheekbones.

I want the portrayal of women on screen and television to allow me to feel like it’s okay to be the anti-hero. It’s not determined by sex, or it shouldn’t be, but we’ve been sort of trained to think that, that this is road for women, and this is the road for men. I think that’s boring, and I think it’s just wrong. It needs to kind of [waves hand as if brushing the concept away]. I mean, it is happening, very much so on TV, especially.

In person, removed from the dank interiors he typically haunts on “Game of Thrones,” Mr. Rheon’s face is more cherubic than demonic, with a rakish scruff and artfully tousled hair that gets more so as he runs his hands through it in conversation. What defines him, though, are a pair of arresting pale blue eyes that tend to bulge maniacally on “Game of Thrones,” alight with the delight that comes from some cruelty or another.
“He has this stare, this wide-eyed smiling gaze that pierces right through you,” Ms. Turner said.

It’s much easier to humiliate, degrade and just generally shit all over someone than it is to admit that you love them!
