Why we love Kaya Scodelario
Kaya Scodelario had no acting experience when she nabbed the role as the smouldering Effy Stonem in Skins, so it was probably quite lucky her character didn't speak in the first few series. When she finally did speak, well it didn't make much sense but that was more down to her character being as crazy as a soup sandwich rather than any lack-luster acting.
Kaya Scodelario is half Portuguese and can speak the language fluently. Whilst not being hip in Skins, she has appeared in films such as Brit Sci-Fi Moon and the epic remake of Clash of the Titans. She dated Cook from Skins for a while then Elliott Tittensor from Shameless. Plus she has modelled for Elle UK, Vogue and i-D. As if all this wasn't enough to satisfy one human being, Kaya popped up in the music videos for ghetto man - turned soul man Plan B. And we're not a tiny bit jealous. Okay just a bit.
Kaya Scodelario received ‘nuff praise for her portrayal of Catherine Earnshaw in a rain lashed adaptation of Wuthering Heights. You can be forgiven for thinking it might be boring, but it’s worth a watch, especially if you like seriously dark and sinister stories of mental and physical anguish? Though so. If that’s not your bag, in the coming two years, you’ll be able to see Scodelario in not one, but six films. And here of course, you can see her here whenever you want, for free. Or the reasonable price of a broadband connection.
