Skins star Kaya Scodelario may have found fame young, but this is one feisty firecracker that’s in it for the long haul. Susan Griffin gets chatting to the British beauty.
KAYA Scodelario’s mother recently pleaded with her daughter over her choice of roles. “My mum asked, ‘Can you stop playing crazy characters? I can’t handle it any more’,” reveals the 22-year-old actress, laughing.
Perhaps understandable, given that her breakthrough role was as the beautiful and complex Effy in Skins, the somewhat edgy E4 series that depicted teenage sex and drug-taking, and also launched the careers of Nicholas Hoult, Jack O’Connell and Dev Patel.
The job came about by chance for Scodelario. Her drama teacher had urged her to go along to an audition, but while there, she panicked, and went outside for a breather. There, she struck up a conversation with a man who turned out to be Bryan Elsley, one of the show’s creators, and he persuaded her to read for the part. Soon after, at the age of 14, Scodelario was headed to Bristol, with her mum in tow, to start shooting.
The series took off in a pretty major way. Despite the show’s success, though, Scodelario insists she’s led a low-key life.
