Spoiler warning: this interview contains plot details for Misfits series 5.
Can you tell us what we can expect from series five?
JG: It’s going to be a big year, isn’t it?
NM: Yeah, well, it’s the final season and we want to go out with a bang and I think the storylines are really fast-paced as well. I guess the first few episodes do try to revert back to the original style of the show where it was a bit gritty and messy.
JG: It’s a bit more power-based as well. I think people missed the powers last year because there weren’t many power-type scenes where they could see us using them, so this year there’s a lot more. As a result, it’s been a fucking ball-ache to film.
Can we expect any more Rudys in this series?
JG: Thank heaven above that there’s no more Rudys because, honest to God man… it’s just the amount of work that’s involved in shooting as three people. You’ve gotta do it all, so that’s three sets of lines on one day and it’s mental. By the end of the day you think your head’s gonna fall off, but this time there’s only the two. I’ve gotta say, it’s been a real joy playing them, but usually I prefer one to the other. Usually it’s Rudy because he’s easier to play – the big gobshite. I’d have loved to have done a gay Rudy – he would have been a good one in the group.
