27 years after 'IT' terrorised our childhood, Pennywise the Dancing Clown has returned to the big screen to instil an irrational fear of clowns in a new generation of children

I mean, look at that face. It's the stuff of nightmares. *shivers*

However, underneath the garish makeup and grotesque smile, the actor who plays Pennywise a.k.a. Bill Skarsgård is actually a total babe in real life. <3

High cheekbones, chiselled jawline, and that soon-to-be-signature intense stare... now that's a face we wouldn't mind haunting our dreams. ;)

Sure, he's got the brooding bad boy look down pat, but he's kind of a cutie pie too. Just look at not-at-all-creepy smile!

If you're wondering why his last name sounds familiar, that's because Bill came from a family of actors. In fact, you might've heard of his dad Stellan Skarsgård or his brothers Alexander and Gustaf.

You've probably seen Bill's dad Stellan Skarsgård in movies such as 'Good Will Hunting', 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', 'Mamma Mia!', as well as several Marvel movies including 'Thor' and 'The Avengers'.

Alexander Skarsgård (pictured above, right) has starred in hit TV shows 'True Blood' and 'Big Little Lies' as well as in 'The Legend of Tarzan', while Gustaf Skarsgård (also pictured above, left) is currently starring in the History Channel series 'Vikings.'

Bill might not be a familiar face to most of us yet, though you might have seen him recently in 'Atomic Blonde' (alongside Charlize Theron and James McAvoy) or 'Allegiant' (alongside Theo James)

Anyway, if you ever get scared that a clown will jump out of a drain and drag you into the sewers...
