some girls have all the luck. kaya scodelario is one of those females. with absolutely no acting experience, she was cast in the hit e4 show, skins, at the tender age of fourteen. perhaps her lack of experience in the trade helps explain why her character is silent for the entire first season.
mute or not, the young bird who plays effy on skins is absolutely stunning. and in the critically-acclaimed series, one would hardly even notice that she's lacking formal training. her character deals with issues such as being drugged, almost being raped, dealing with boys she's just not that into, having offbeat friends, helping her brother with his condition, scoring the most adorably whorish outfits and finding all the best parties. through all of which, miss scodelario steals the show.
you can catch this fox in the first four seasons of skins. you can also check her out in the already released film, moon, watch out for shank on dvd in which she plays tasha in the fall and mark your calendar for her appearance in the upcoming wuthering heights.
