Emanuel & The Truth About Fishes + Skins with Kaya Scodelario

Sundance London kicked off this week, bringing the spirit of Park City to East London for the second year in a row.

And among the great line-up of guests on the red carpet for the festival’s first full day of events was Wuthering Heights and Skins star, Kaya Scodelario.

We caught up with Kaya to chat about her fantastic new film Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes, which follows a troubled teenager who becomes preoccupied with her mysterious new neighbour who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother.

Check out the video below to see what Kaya says about playing strong female roles, doing an American accent for the first time, working with Alfred Molina and Jessica Biel, what it’s like returning to TV series Skins after many years, what we can expect from Skins series 7, growing up on screen, and gearing up to shoot The Maze Runner in Louisiana with Wild Bill’s Will Poulter and Game of Thrones star Thomas Brodie-Sangster.
