Created by Elwood Reid and based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Annie Proulx, Thewlis says the name "Barkskins" refers to people like his character — leather-skinned settlers who work in the woods.

In a recent conversation with TheWrap, the former "Harry Potter" star described Trepagny as a "wonderfully flamboyant, eccentric character," and "a real contradiction" — he is at once "charming, obnoxious, wise, foolish, vulnerable," and a "bully."

"Does he live in a log cabin or a manor house? Is he a man of god or does he worship a rotten old log? You can never pin him down," Thewlis said of Trepagny, whose abrasive personality makes him disliked by the local villagers.

But Thewlis said the craziest thing about acting as an early French settler wasn't the barbaric nature of life in the 17th century or the hours of walking and hard labor. It was the mosquitos.

"What I found really difficult out there were the conditions, the heat when we were shooting in the summer," he said. "The mosquitos were unbearable. I could never live in that environment, ever."

If the show were to be picked up for a second season, however, he knows exactly what he would do.
