Robert Sheehan Misfits
From 2009 to 2010, he portrayed Nathan Young, a young offender, in the first two seasons of the British television series Misfits. Sheehan’s departure from the show for the third season was announced in April 2011. Sheehan, a “cult favorite,” felt “intensely” connected to the role, which he later described as “defining” and “a lovely, gorgeous memory for me,” and admitted it was “challenging” to leave it behind. For his role in Misfits, he was nominated for a BAFTA Award in the category of “Male Supporting Actor” in May 2011.
Nathan Young was a founding member of the Misfits gang. Nathan, a born clown with an annoying, flippant attitude toward life and others, gained the power of Immortality after the Storm, which he discovered months later when he temporarily died fighting the brainwashed Virtue organization.
After falling in love with a single mother, Marnie, he sold his immortality to Seth in order to purchase the power of Magic, which he used to try to win millions at a casino in Las Vegas, only to be imprisoned in an American prison.
Robert Sheehan The Umbrella Academy
In 2019, he played Klaus Hargreeves in the Netflix Original series The Umbrella Academy. Klaus Hargreeves, formerly known as Number Four, is one of forty-three children born on the 12th hour of the first day of October 1989 to mothers who had no prior signs of pregnancy. Sir Reginald Hargreeves adopted the baby as one of seven with the intention of training them to save the world.
Klaus was Hargreeves’ Number Four in terms of individual usefulness, with the ability to communicate with the dead. His proclivity for speaking German, as well as his surname, imply that he was born in Germany to a German mother.
When Five fails to avert the apocalypse, Klaus is transported to Dallas on February 11, 1960. Klaus becomes the leader of a spiritual cult, and despite his celebrity, he struggles with his inner demons more and more. He and Ben struggle with their relationship, but they begin to experiment with their combined abilities more.

An online campaign by Grint’s fans was credited with securing a distribution deal in the United Kingdom. Luke, a drug dealer living with his drug-addicted father, and Malachy McKinny, a straight-A teen working at the Titanic Leisureplex, star in the film. When the three teenagers throw a party, they realize they are in over their heads. When Dave walks in to find his place trashed, he nearly kills Malachy.
