One To Watch: Kaya Scodelario

We wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t recognise Kaya Scodelario. The Skins actress stepped out on the red carpet at Venice Film Festival 2011 in an elegant cream lace dress (we’re seeing loads of lace about this week), looking streets away from her Skins character – teenage tearaway, Effy.

Kaya Scodelario has landed the coveted lead role of Cathy in the new adaptation of Emily Bronte’s classic Wuthering Heights, premiering at the fashion fabulous festival this week. Alongside her was unknown actor, James Howson, who takes on the role of Wuthering Heights’ iconic lead male character Heathcliffe – he’s the first black actor ever to star in a film adaptation of the book. We think they look gorgeous together – can’t wait to see their on screen chemistry! MH
