Skins Star Joe Dempsie's Transformation
Skins star Joe Dempsie, known for his role as Chris Miles in the E4 teen comedy-drama, looks unrecognisable these days. The 36-year-old actor has now secured a major new role on Netflix's thriller-drama, Pieces of Her.
A Leader of a Domestic Terrorist Group
In the late 1980s-set series, Dempsie plays the leader of a domestic terrorist group called the Army of the Changing World. His character adds a dark and thrilling twist to the storyline.
Toni Collette as Co-Star
Toni Collette, famous for her role in movies like The Sixth Sense, stars as Laura Oliver, a speech pathologist and breast cancer survivor with a mysterious past. Collette's talent paired with Dempsie's intense portrayal promises an engaging viewing experience.
Series Reception and Rotten Tomatoes' Rating
Last March, Pieces of Her was released to mixed reviews. Rotten Tomatoes gave the series a 50% approval rating, indicating a divided opinion among the audience and critics.
Joe Dempsie's Game of Thrones Journey
Joe Dempsie is no stranger to major roles. He portrayed Gendry Baratheon in HBO's hit series, Game of Thrones, between 2011 and 2013. Despite having his "worst ever audition," Dempsie was cast as Gendry and quickly gained a loyal following.

Dempsie credits the power of his fans on Twitter for his return to Game of Thrones in its seventh season. Show bosses underestimated the fans' devotion to his character, and their desire to see him return ultimately played a role in his comeback.
