Yesterday, we were blessed with a Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer. Not only did the trailer get me pumped for the movie, but it also made me realize that it would be a perfect time for a post about Kaya Scodelario. Scodelario is playing astronomer Carina Smyth, and she is the female lead in the upcoming film.
The 24-year-old is from Haywards Heath, West Sussex, England, and she hit the ground running as an actress. At just 14,Scodelario made her acting debut as Effy Stonem in the British teen drama series Skins (2007-2010, 2013). The show was a monster hit, and Scodelario’s performance was praised by fans and critics alike. After Skins, Kaya kept busy with several other projects, but her biggest success came in The Maze Runner films.
Scodelario stars as Teresa Agnes in these beloved movies based on the James Dashner novels. The Maze Runner (2014) currently has a 65% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and it made $348.3 million at the box office on a $34 million budget.
The second movie in the series was Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015), and it brought home $312.3 million on a $61 million budget. The reviews weren’t quite as hot, as the film currently has a 48% on Rotten Tomatoes. The third and final film of the trilogy will be entitled Maze Runner: The Death Cure, and it is scheduled to be released on January 12, 2018.
