Misfits actress Antonia Thomas was excited to step into Angelina Jolie's harness for one of the stunts on the hit show.

Antonia plays Alisha in the hit E4 programme about a group of Asbo teens who realise they've been given superpowers.

Speaking about series two, which starts this week, Antonia said one of the stunts involved the five main stars hanging from meat hooks.

She said: "It was uncomfortable but my harness was Angelina Jolie's harness in Wanted! I was obsessed with that, it was very exciting."

Antonia also revealed that the second series pushes the boundaries of reality even more than the first.

"For the premise of the show Howard Overman, the writer, had set up this world where anything can happen and that is very much apparent in the second series," she said.

Co-star Nathan Stewart-Jarrett added that the teens are more of a team in the new series, saying: "I think we're much more together as a group in this series, a lot more of the adventures are together, the scrapes and so on. The first series established who we were, it was helpful to have an episode each but now that's done."

:: Misfits, series two, begins on E4 this Thursday.
