Misfits: Why did Iwan Rheon really leave Misfits as Simon Bellamy?

“But I have left now and look forward to doing exciting new things. The show must go on! X.”

He also addressed his exit in 2012 to Red Carpet News, saying it was “quite weird” leaving Misfits behind.

Rheon said: “It’s exciting for me, I get to do other things. That was the idea because you’re tied up for so long and it was nice to have my whole year to try and fit things in.”

He continued: “The whole thing was amazing. I’ve made such great friends and we’re all like a little family now.”

Since leaving Misfits, Rheon went on to play the evil and barbaric Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones.

He also starred in the Marvel series Inhumans as well as Sky thriller Riviera.

Misfits is streaming on Netflix UK now
