Misfits newcomer Karla Crome has hinted at what fans of the show can expect from her character Jess.
Hit and Miss actress Crome will join the cast in its fourth series later this year.
“I suppose Jess says what she thinks and can see through people’s bulls**t,” Crome told CultBox.
“Because she’s so straightforward, she gets frustrated when people aren’t honest with her. She’s a tough cookie, but she’s quite vulnerable too.”
Crome also revealed that she has been enjoying working in a comedic role having previously assumed that comedy was not her “strong point”, and spoke highly of fellow Misfits cast members Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Joseph Gilgun.
“Nathan and Joe have both been lovely,” she added. “I didn’t ever feel I had to try too hard with them because they’ve been so open and welcoming, as have the crew.”
Crome and Nathan McMullen (Shameless) are two of the three new cast members to have joined the E4 drama. 3-year-old Crome will play Jess, who is described as “smart and articulate” and willing to question social norms and etiquette. McMullen has been cast as Finn, said to be “funny”, “enthusiastic” and “childlike”.
The identity of the third new cast member – who will portray the “good-looking” but “standoffish” Alex – is yet to be revealed.
