Nico Mirallegro found fame as the iconic angst teenager, who had jet black hair and lashings of eyeliner, in October 2007 before eventually departing from the Channel 4 soap six years ago.
During his time in Hollyoaks, Nico's character Newt was diagnosed with schizophrenia and the actor was nominated for two British Soap Awards for his portrayal.
Since leaving, Nico has very much continued acting, although we're not sure we would recognise him in the street.
Gone is the dyed 'do and there's not a Kohl in sight. If anything, Nico looks more like a member of One Direction!
The 25-year-old is now a BAFTA-nominated actor following his appearance in BBC's The Village. He has recently finished filming a new three-part TV drama called Rillington Place and attended last year's Emmy Awards in New York.
