Welcome to this month’s “Woman Crush fill-in-the-day-here.” This one will be a quick throwback, so let’s get going! 🙂
I present you no other than Kaya Scodelario, a British actress best known for playing the character Effy Stonem on Skins, as well as Teresa in the Maze Runner films. At the young age of twenty-four, Scodelario has already made headway in the television and film industries, taking on challenging roles and refusing to subscribe to the cookie-cutter mold laid out by preteen and teen shows out there (I am talking Disney Channel, or at least, the U.K.’s version of Disney Channel).
As Effie Stonem in Skins, Scodelario made a name for herself portraying the tortured, pretty-faced character for four full seasons. Despite the bad-girl image, she still made her character vulnerable, even likeable- a challenge that isn’t easy to do!
While I have only seen the first Maze Runner film, her portrayal of the mysterious Teresa was convincing enough. And I got to hear her try out the American accent- not bad! Not bad at all…
…and you have to admit, she is definitely the hottie. 😉 With her brunette and blue-eyed look, as well as a youthful, mischievous expression, I am pretty sure that Scodelario has made many people’s hearts swoon. And that British accent doesn’t hurt, either. ❤
It’s a shame that she’s married (just found out that she recently got hitched in late 2015)…all of the good ones are always taken! 😦 Wishing her the best with the marriage, though.
Any case, enjoy! More to come next month. 🙂
