Eee lad, is this TV’s first Yorkshire superhero?

Former Emmerdale cast member and This Is England star Joe Gilgun has been added to the cast of E4s superhero comedy/drama Misfits, as the replacement for Nathan, played by Robert Sheehan who has left the series to take on movie roles.

Gilgun will play Rudy, whose introduction and Nathan’s departure, will be dealt with in an online short prior to season 3.
