Kaya Scodelario Bio

Kaya is a British actress of Brazilian, Italian and English descent, who grew up in West Sussex, England. She began her acting career in 2007, when she was cast as Effy Stonem in the beloved British series Skins, and was one of the only characters to appear in all four seasons of the show.

Scodelario starred as the female lead in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales alongside Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and Brenton Thwaites. The film was released by Disney on May 11, 2017.

Scodelario is perhaps most widely known in the US for her role in The Maze Runner film series, based on the popular novels by James Dashner. She first appeared in The Maze Runner in 2013 and then again in the 2015 sequel, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. Scodelario reprised her role as Teresa alongside Dylan O'Brien in the third and final installment titled Maze Runner: The Death Cure on January 26, 2018.

Most recently, Scodelario filmed Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile alongside Zac Efron about the life of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, which will premiere at Sundance in 2019. She also recently starred in the Paramount film, Crawl, which is an environmental horror set to premiere in 2019.

Scodelario's additional film credits include Shank, Clash of the Titans, Wuthering Heights, Twenty8k, Now Is Good, The Truth About Emanuel with Jessica Biel, Tiger House, and The King's Daughter with Pierce Brosnan and Benjamin Walker, which does not yet have a release date.

Kaya currently resides in London.
