Why we love Antonia Thomas
Antonia first won our hearts (and trousers) in the role of Alisha in acclaimed ‘ABSO superheroes’ series Misfits. After getting caught in a lightning storm, Alisha gained the power to make people fall head-over-heels in love with her, just by touching them. Her superpower must also have worked through TVs, because by the end of the first episode we were completely besotted with her, and very much wanted her to scowl all over us in her sexy orange jumpsuit.
Antonia left Misfits at the end of series three – Alisha was killed off, which made us feel sad for several days – to pursue a career in movies, kicking off with Spike Island, a 1990-set film in which Antonia embarks on an epic journey to see her heroes The Stone Roses play their most famous gig. Top one, nice one, sorted.
