A Tumblr celebrating the love between Simon and Alisha from E4's Misfits.
Iwan & Antonia:
Yes this is a Tumblr dedicated to Simon & Alisha From E4’s Misfits and their incredible love but Simon & Alisha wouldn’t be the same without the amazing chemistry and dynamic that Iwan and Antonia have with each other. In here you’ll find little facts about them, what they said about each other and what they have in common.
Iwan was Born 13th of May 1985 (age: 25) in Carmarthen, Wales, UK. Besides his outstanding acting he also sings! I know what you’re thinking an actor who sings god help us (we may have thought the same), but his talent speaks for itself ( give it a listen and you’ll know what we’re talking about.)
Antonia was born in November of 1986 in London, England. Antonia’s work on Misfits was her first role out of drama school. She was the most inexperienced Misfit cast member, but that didn’t hold her down, she has a beautiful voice (listen here).
What They said about each other:
Iwan on Antonia:
“Antonia is a beautiful, lovely girl.”
“I worked a lot with Antonia in this series and she’s great. She was really generous and gives me loads.”
“Me and Antonia are very good friends so that makes it [doing sex scenes] easier.”
Antonia on Iwan:
“I do occasionally write music, but I haven’t yet got there. It’s one of those things that I will eventually get round to but you’ve sort of got to concentrate on one thing or the other. Although, Iwan [Rheon]! He’s doing both. Have you heard his music? He’s got his own EP out, you should check that out.”
Interviewer: so when it came to reading the script and seeing that you’re gonna be getting it on with Simon or with Iwan, how did you feel about that?
Antonia: to be honest it kinda I mean the whole kinda plot term quite exciting for my character ‘cause you know its really interesting a bit different for Alisha as well, having to do it with Iwan kinda makes it look easier ‘cause we’re really good friends.
“we’re wicked mates.”
What power would you most like to have and how would you use it?
IWAN: Teleportation! And I’d use it not to have to use public transport!
ANTONIA: I suppose being a shape-shifter. I would have said teleportation but Iwan got there first…
on the sex scenes between them
Bliss: So you know we have to ask… that sexy scene between the both of you in the second series! How much did you have to psyche yourself up for that one… we bet you couldn’t watch it with your parents.
Antonia: (laughs) I’ve never watched any with my parents. Thing is they love it, though my mum tries to ignore the sex stuff. It is full on and pretty embarrassing but it’s part of the job.
Iwan: Yeah! It’s an awkward sitch to be in but it’s just the reality of the job!
Antonia: And we’re mates and the crew are great so it wasn’t too bad.
Iwan: The only real prep you need is loads of chewing gum and loads of pre-brushing.
