Kaya Scodelario

British and Brazilian actress Kaya Scodelario began her career at the age of 15 when she joined the cast of the series *Skins*, portraying Effy Stonem, Tony's (Nicholas Hoult) younger sister. While her role was relatively minor in the first two seasons, Effy became a central character in the following seasons. Scodelario reprised her role in 2013 for the final season, appearing as an adult Effy in two episodes. During this period, Kaya Scodelario made her film debut with smaller roles, appearing in Duncan Jones' *Moon* as the daughter of Sam Rockwell and in the major production *Clash of the Titans*. Her first leading role came in 2011 with *Wuthering Heights*, where she played Catherine Earnshaw in the adaptation of Emily Brontë's classic novel. While her British films, including *Shank*, *Twenty8k*, and *Panic Room*, largely went unnoticed in French theaters, she gained wider recognition in 2014 with her role as Teresa in the post-apocalyptic teen film *The Maze Runner*. She continued her success in blockbuster franchises by replacing Keira Knightley as the female lead in *Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales* (also known as *Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge*), where she played Carina Smyth, a young orphaned astronomer. After giving birth to a son in 2016, Scodelario returned to the screen in 2019 with a prominent role in the thriller *Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile*, which is based on the life of serial killer Ted Bundy, and in *Crawl*, directed by Alexandre Aja. In *Crawl*, she portrayed a young woman battling alligators during a hurricane. She also appeared on television as a figure skater dealing with personal and professional challenges in the series *Spinning Out*. In 2021, the London native took on the role of Claire Redfield in the reboot of *Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City*.
