And courtesy of the Hybrid Project, here’s a synopsis for the film.
Life in the subterranean living facility Securos is regimented. The facility has been inhabited for a long, unknown period of time, the people within believing that Earth was destroyed by apocalyptic windstorms. Their history tells them that life in Securos is a test by a higher power: if they demonstrate their faith in this idea then they will ultimately be rewarded with a second life on Earth.
Alex is an engineer who works alongside her best friend Nick to maintain the air supply in Securos. She dreams that there must be more to existence than her daily routine and the controlled life they all live, however the problems with their air supply is the main focus of her concern.
Due to consistent mechanical failures, the air supply in Securos is diminishing at such a rate that it can no longer sustain the life of everyone living in the facility. The Minister, the spiritual and political leader who governs Securos, believes that dramatic sacrificial measures are required in order to ensure the survival of the race.
One day, whilst working to unblock an air vent, Alex stumbles across an ancient manual that reveals an alternative history to Securos and the meaning of their lives in the facility. Knowing that the manual would be seen as heresy and that revealing its truth could get her killed, Alex hides it – even from Nick with whom she is in love. However, realising that the only way to prevent the sacrifices and save Nick’s life is to use the knowledge found in the manual to try to repair the air supply, Alex must escape Securos and brave the catastrophic winds of the world above…where she discovers the poignant truth.

Antonia Talks Upcoming Films ‘Northern Soul’ and ‘Sunshine On Leith’
Antonia Thomas (Misfits, Homefront) recently spoke with Red Carpet News TV about the two upcoming film projects we can expect to see her in this year.
Thomas will star in Northern Soul, a film set in 1974, which tells the tale of two white British friends whose horizons are opened up by the discovery of black American soul music. They travel to the USA to bring back rare soul records, in the hopes of becoming hit DJs.
Also starring in the film will be British actor and comedian Steve Coogan, along with the two leads Elliot James Langridge and Josh Whitehouse.

Northern Soul is directed by Elaine Constantine, with Debbie Gray producing. Henry Normal served as executive producer, with the UK’s Enterprise Investment Scheme providing funding.

Antonia for 1883 Magazine!
Aside from Topman Generation, Antonia is also featured in this new photoshoot/interview for 1883 Magazine. So loving all these new photoshoots and interviews featuring Antonia!
- Photoshoots > Session #11
It’s a scorching Wednesday in East London. Baseball capped boys on fixie bikes skid up dust on the cobbles, ripple-muscled Trinidadians hawk straw-pierced coconuts to thirsty passers-by, and Mischa Barton sucks on an ice pop and flips through Heat Magazine behind the counter of her new shop in Spitalfields Market.
We’re curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea, and the lovely Antonia Thomas, who manages to look perfectly comfortable in the jangling plethora of feathery attire 1883’s adventurous fashion team decks her out in. She’s so smiley and welcoming we feel like we’ve known her for years, maybe sat next to her in GCSE Maths. Antonia is best known for her role in E4’s cult superhero satire Misfits, as Alisha Bailey, blessed with the ability of instilling instant sexual arousal in anyone she comes into contact with. Come on, you’re all thinking it; that would be awesome.
“She was an amazing character to play!” grins Antonia “When I first got offered the role I was a bit scared because she’s so overtly sexual. I had just come out of drama school so jumping straight into a character like that was a massive leap.” But she’s quick to point out there’s much more to Alisha’s character than gratuitous sexuality. The depth of Misfits’ characters was a major part of its appeal. “To play someone like Alisha was great, because at first admittedly she essentially just seems like a bit of a slag, but she has so many different hidden, sensitive sides to her. She matures and grows. I love exploring characters like that.”
Antonia for Topman Generation!
Looking incredibly gorgeous, Antonia is featured in the new issue of Topman Generation. She chats to the magazine about Misfits, her career and more!

Antonia Thomas isn’t instantly recognisable when she arrives at our GENERATION shoot at an intimate retro cafe in Islington, North London. The tight head of curls that identify her as sassy teen Alicia in Channel 4’s Misfits has been straightened into a sleek bob, and the overall effect is completely transformative. With delicate doll-like features to match her diminutive size, Antonia is softly spoken, poised and intelligent, and none of Alicia’s fiery attitude or in-your-face confidence. A misconstrued expectation that is somewhat understandable considering Misfits, the show that thrust Antonia and her co-stars into the limelight three years ago, has since become such a stalwart of British youth television that its characters almost feel like old friends.
It is somewhat surprising that a sci-fi drama about young offenders-turned-superheroes, set on a London council estate, which can only be described as a cross between HBO’s Heroes and British movies like Kidulthood, should be such a runaway success and garner such a cult following. Now, with a BAFTA win and three successful series Thomas is venturing to fresh pastures, so GENERATION spoke to the actress about what it feels like to hang up the orange jumpsuit for good…
Topman GENERATION: Misfits kick started your television career. When you got the part did you have any idea the show would be this much of a success?
Antonia: I mean, we knew the writing was really good, and there was a lot of hype surrounding the part, but none of us had any idea it would be so huge. I was a bit scared when I got the part to be honest, especially as the character I was playing was pretty risqué. But it was just the most brilliant opportunity, and it completely started my career.
Antonia in the new issue of Marie Claire!
Antonia, along with several other talented actresses, are featured in the new issue of Marie Claire as part of the Great Britain shoot. You can check out a behind the scenes video from the photoshoot below.
The GREAT Campaign has partnered with Marie Claire to create an exclusive fashion shoot with some of Britain’s great female acting talent and rising stars of screen, shot in some of London’s most historic locations.
The fashion shoot features actresses Helen McCrory, Harry Potter’s Bonnie Wright, Ophelia Lovibond, Eleanor Tomlinson, Antonia Thomas, Oona Chaplin, Downton Abbey’s new stars Lily James and Joanna Froggatt and Dr Who’s Karen Gillian.
Marie Claire’s fashion photo shoot gained access for the first time at many of the exclusive locations such as No10 Downing Street, Westminster Abbey, the Foreign Office, Hyde Park Barracks and Lancaster House — most of which had never been used by a fashion magazine before.
Screencaptures from the video have been added to the gallery.
