In Skins: Merrick played the memorably named Aloysius Creevey across series 5 and 6. A country bumpkin, Alo is a bit of an outsider, and like many of his Skins contemporaries has a fractious relationship with his parents, at one point lashing out and wrecking their farm. Over the course of the sixth season, he developed a relationship with Mini (Freya Mavor) that eventually leads to the birth of their baby ar the culmination of series 6.
What Happened Next: Having only completed work on series six of Skins in 2012, Merrick’s filmography is relatively sparse. That hasn’t stopped him landing roles in Doctor Who (something of a Skins trend) and Richard Curtis' upcoming time-travel romcom About Time.
