Why is he considered the perfect villain? Despite his behavior Rafe Cameron won the hearts of fans. It happened because he looks sympathetic. All his bad deeds seem to be the result of circumstances and not of his intentions.
What else do we know about him?
He is very aggressive towards those who are not part of his team. He dislikes Pogues as he sees him as a threat. Being a leader by nature Rafe feels the rival. He influences friends especially Topper. This influence is not always positive. He also loves to play golf as a hobby. This elitist game doesn’t fit too well with the image of a drug addict, but this contrast makes the character deep and realistic.
Girls like Rafe Cameron for his appearance and personal history. A handsome, tall blonde with a mysterious past and an uncertain present is the best candidate to be a crash. The guys respect him for his fearlessness and willingness to fight back. Drew Starkey considers Rafe Cameron the most important character in his career because of his duality. He cannot call him an ambiguous villain. But Rafe has a lot of potential:)
