Many of you may have no idea who Kaya Scodelario is, but this pretty 19 going on 20 Londoner is surely making a name of herself!

The young actress started out big in the UK version of the TV show called Skins. Kaya plays a troubled teenager named Effy Stonem who was seen briefly in the first two seasons of the show but made her big debut in the third and fourth seasons. Kaya’s role was played with such emotion – the life of her character was nothing but tumultuous from the very beginning to the very end.

After her role in Skins, she moved on to modeling. Kaya was spotted in Teen Vogue, Nylon, Vogue and other UK magazines. She also appeared in various artists’ music videos.

Director Andrea Arnold enjoyed Kaya Scodelario’s work in previous movies such as the 2009 movie Moon so much, she asked Kaya to play the part of Catherine Earnshaw in Wuthering Heights. Since then Kaya has been filming in 5 other movies soon to be released throughout the year.

As her fame rises so does her sense of fashion. Although the young actress claims she mainly shops at TopShop, she has been seen on the red carpet in Burberry. Either way, we are bound to see more from Kaya Scodelario in the years to come!
