Speaking about Bodies, Stephen teased his character: “He was abandoned as a child and left fend for himself in the cruel world that he grew up in.
“He is taken in by this family and he’s shown some kind of an understanding of what it is to be loved in a sense.
“Then he becomes part of a cult and the architect of this twisted, utopian society [in the future].
“It sounds mad, doesn’t it? But it’s a beautiful madness. Beyond that it’s really tricky to talk about the plot as there’s a lot there.
“Even with my own particular journey and my character arc, there’s so much that goes on within that.”
