Robert Sheehan and the "Misfits"
No offense, but I'm thinking some people are just born criminals. Nathan was born on March 15th as seen in his memorial-video made by Simon and grew up in Ireland, largely raised by his mother Louise as his father Mike was very distant. He was raised as a Catholic among child-molesting priests, so he claims. It seems that Mike also got another woman pregnant at around this time, leading to the birth of Nathan's half-brother Jamie , although Mike chose to stay with Louise and Nathan rather than Jamie and his mother.
Eventually, however, Mike left them as well and remained a shadowy figure in his son's life - even leaving Nathan by himself for three hours after 'treating' him to a birthday visit to Ikea. Nathan was looked after by a paedophile but found before he could be hurt,his father subsequently forgot all about this awful mistake. According to Nathan, he had his first sexual experience with one of his mother's friends during a camping trip, who gave him a handjob while he slept.
While out with some friends who, it is implied, don't particularly like him much , Nathan stole some pick 'n' mix sweets and soft drinks from a bowling alley. He subsequently aggravated the manager Beverly Morgan to the point that the police were called; this is the reason he is doing community service.
During the event, his father Mike was summoned to help, but due to his own bitterness towards his father he elected to have the police over rather than have his father pay for the damage he'd caused. At the start of his community service, Nathan quickly proved to be a nuisance to his fellow probationers, picking on them at every turn, especially Simon.
Upon the gang's discovery of their individual powers following the Storm , Nathan was disappointed to have appeared unchanged and is seen numerous times trying to figure out what his power might be. His lack of tact got the better of him as it caused his mother to throw him out of the house, choosing her boyfriend Jeremy over her own son.
With nowhere to go, Nathan took up residence inside the Community Center. During his community service, Nathan discovered Jeremy, naked and assuming animalistic behaviours, being hit by the storm. He used this as an opportunity to defame Jeremy, but was shocked to discover that his mother was already aware of Jeremy's condition and accepting of him. With one insensitive remark, Nathan received a slap from his mother and recoiled to the flat of Ruth , an attractive young women he met at the community center.
During sex, Ruth briefly reverted to the visage of an elderly woman to Nathan's disgust. Ruth explained him that the storm made her young again and that her power was slowly fading. Despite her plea, Nathan left abruptly and Ruth died the next day of old age. Ruth's lonely death made Nathan realize his wrongdoings. Not wanting his mother to age and die alone, Nathan made amends with her and decided to not return home at his own admission.
Nathan's relationship with the others on community service is mainly antagonistic, all of them finding his personality annoying. However, he does manage a friendly relationship with Kelly on the hopes they'll shag which she decides against which Nathan is very disappointed by.
Also, he picks out Simon as a target, and continually calls him "Barry" since he couldn't remember his name, despite Nathan's constant ridicule, Simon and Nathan are shown to be friends with Nathan often giving the more naive Simon tips on how to get girls.
Nathan's resurrection didn't go down well with his family - his mother fainted and, if Nathan is to be believed, hurt her face badly after he arrived at her door unannounced; and his father was furious after Nathan claimed that his death had just been an insurance scam. After the accident caused by Lilys ' reversed power she was presumed dead while Jamie appeared to be okay. Jamie tries to convince Nathan to go see their father and make amends, Nathan does only to discover that Jamie is only an apparition as he died with Lily.
He also sees Ollie after his death, apologizing that he was shot. Nathan also see's Kelly's ghost in S01E He was able to conjure a red tulip for Marnie, and ended up going to jail for creating a die with the number seven on it.
Nathan's relationship with the other misfits is initially purely antagonistic, through a mutual attraction between him and Kelly lead to a brief romantic fling which she calls off as she sees him as more of a cousin than a boyfriend and tells Nathan that she just wants to be mates. Nevertheless he still maintains a friendship, Nathan clearly cares deeply about Kelly and she returns the feeling. Nathan's relationship with Simon also improves as the series progresses.
Having identified him as the outcast, Nathan initially bullies Simon relentlessly, referring to him using insults such as 'weird kid' and 'panty sniffer,' among others. The two grow closer in the second season, as Nathan reveals the kinder side of his personality. After Simon finally stands up for himself, recounting all of the hurtful remarks Nathan has aimed at him and concluding that in spite of it all he, "just [wants] to be friends," Nathan seems to acquire a measure of respect for him.
After this encounter Nathan begins looking out for Simon in his own way such as suggesting hiring him a prostitute to "get [his] confidence up" and Simon in return begins laughing more freely at his jokes and even attempting though often failing to replicate them.
Nathan also seems to have developed an odd friendship with him, as he admits to Alisha that he likes Simon, attempts to protect him from Jessica, and enthusiastically congratulates Simon for losing his virginity. Three months later, after Simon has gained more confidence, Nathan comments jokingly that he preferred him when he "suffered from a crippling shyness.
Nathan's relationship with Alisha is a changing one. Nathan's crass jokes and offensive comments usually make Alisha laugh, and in most cases they work well together. Despite this, Alisha denies being his friend on multiple occasions.
When Nathan dies for the first time before he and the others know he is immortal Alisha seems to be the least affected, though she is willing to comfort the distraught Kelly. Curtis seems to dislike Nathan and often calls him a prick. Nathan likes winding Curtis up about his misfortune of getting caught and his career being in tatters. Despite this Curtis seemed honestly sad about Nathan's death and sometimes gets along with him.
When faced with having to break up with his girlfriend Curtis goes to Nathan for advice on how to end the relationship. The advice he gives Curtis is terrible, but Curtis uses it anyways, possibly displaying some level of misguided faith in Nathan's relationship skills. The fact that Curtis goes to Nathan for advice in the first place shows that he may trust Nathan more than he lets on.
Nathan's relationship with Rudy is not known as he has never seen or spoken to him in person but has talked to him over Simon's phone once when Simon wasn't around. He referred to Simon as Barry so Rudy didn't recognize the name and hung up on him when Nathan called him from jail in Las Vegas. Rudy didn't seem to really care that Nathan sounded like he was in trouble, and hung up almost immediately.
However this was most likely not personal due to Rudy's habit of not caring about things that don't affect him, hence his ability. Nathan's outfits consist of a casual range of clothes each dark in colour.
One notable piece of clothing is his black Harrington Jacket, usually worn over several graphic t-shirts. He usually wears skinny jeans, black or denim and wears simple burgandy, teal or grey t-shirts.
He wears black and grey converses as shoes and always wears a metal necklace around his neck. Occasionally he will wear an open shirt over a t-shirt, or a dark hoodie.
He is also seen wearing jumpers and cardigans throughout the series. Nathan has several tattoos, two simple black star outlines on the inside and outside of his wrist, three stars of the similar style on his hip, a crest pattern of some sort under his arm, and a swallow [bird] on his back.
Casting for the part was announced on 17 August by Digital Spy. Fellow cast member Iwan Rheon revealed that Overman who created the character discussed how to write their parts with the cast and later began writing for them as actors. Misfit's executive producer Petra Fried announced Robert Sheehan's decision to leave at the Kapow convention in London on 10 April and his departure was dealt with in an online spinoff, which aired on 15 September The spinoff was called Vegas Baby!
On his decision to leave Sheehan said "It's nice that the show's successful but it doesn't mean complete blind and unadmonished loyalty - 'If something is very successful you should stick to it like a barnacle!
I think I've made the right decision, yeah". On a possible return Sheehan said "There's no point in saying never. It holds a very fond little place in my heart. No, it's been a great big part of my life and there's no point in turning your back on something completely. I'm not doing that, I would never say never". The Herald described him as a "curly haired Irish smart alec called Nathan Robert Sheehan , to whom writer Howard Overman has given all the best lines". The Guardian also commented that "So far his only power seems to be the gift of incessant back-chat.
Played by Robert Sheehan, he's the breakout star of the show". Boxcutters commented negatively on the characters of Misfits saying it was "filled with unattractive and very annoying characters" although they responded positively to the show asking "why do we find it so strangely compelling? The Daily Telegraph describes him as "Motormouth Nathan was the pivot here, prodding, challenging and provoking the others into revealing themselves".
The Independent responded to the character saying he was "clearly the most quotable of the quintet" and after Nathan decides to join the circus so he can be repeatedly killed they added "Quite right: who'd really get all superhero-ish just because they've got some powers?
MSN News described Nathan saying he was "undoubtedly the star of the show". The Guardian described Sheehan as the "leading light of E4's Asbo superheroes drama", describing him as a "cocky motormouth" before questioning "Can Misfits survive without Nathan? Neela Debnath of the Independent spoke of Sheehan's departure upon the beginning of the third series saying the absence of Nathan, who she described as "universally popular and well-liked", was the "starkest" difference in the series.
Debnath expressed that although for a large number of people Nathan was "the most entertaining character on the show" because of his "schoolboy humour and penchant for annoying everyone but the audience" his departure did not detract from the quality of the show. The Guardian branded Nathan their "favourite cocky yet lovable and immortal character" but after Rudy's entrance questioned "As for that void after Nathan left?

I’m in love with BBC drama Accused star Robert Sheehan – and you should be too!
Julia Garner is the actress you call for cannibals, criminals, and cult members. Julia Garner is aware that she has a type. The odd one out. Her specialty is young women living on the margins — or sometimes well beyond the margins — of conventional society. I got so comfortable that it was like second nature to me. I was obsessed with What Ever Happened to Baby Jane when I was 9 years old — which, normally, a 9-year-old kid should not be watching that movie, but I did. Her hair, in particular, has become something of a calling card. She embraced the dramatic new look. Are you trying to like, impress us?

The Misfit Ingenue
Until a few days ago not many in Italy had ever heard of him, but as of January, 10th year-old Robert Sheehan is likely to be on everyone's lips: Fox is now broadcasting the series Misfits , among the most innovative seen on the small screen in recent years, where the young Irish actor plays Nathan Young, an already legendary street punk with superpowers. Known back home since his cameo in Song for a Raggy Boy - the acclaimed film by Aisling Walsh based on Patrick Galvin's novel about a suspected case of pedophilia - Sheehan, then 14, unveiled his talent and hasn't stopped acting since. And after his nomination at the latest IFTA Awards in the "rising star" category, he seizes every opportunity to affirm his intention to keep on acting.
You notice the orange boiler suits first. One slides over a shapely ankle sporting a monitoring bracelet. A curly-haired youth shrugs into his, a cigarette dangling from his mouth. Two orange-clad girls preen in the mirror. Another young man pulls a singlet over a muscled torso.
No offense, but I'm thinking some people are just born criminals. Nathan was born on March 15th as seen in his memorial-video made by Simon and grew up in Ireland, largely raised by his mother Louise as his father Mike was very distant. He was raised as a Catholic among child-molesting priests, so he claims. It seems that Mike also got another woman pregnant at around this time, leading to the birth of Nathan's half-brother Jamie , although Mike chose to stay with Louise and Nathan rather than Jamie and his mother. Eventually, however, Mike left them as well and remained a shadowy figure in his son's life - even leaving Nathan by himself for three hours after 'treating' him to a birthday visit to Ikea. Nathan was looked after by a paedophile but found before he could be hurt,his father subsequently forgot all about this awful mistake.
