What Is a Second Generation of Skins Up to Now?
February 7, 2017 - Finding Carter
This week we are celebrating a tenth anniversary of a entrance of Skins, inarguably a biggest teen uncover of all time.
The transition to a new expel from Skins’s strange squad from Seasons 1 and 2 was easier than it could have been given of Effy (Kaya Scodelario): Tony Stonem’s party-city small sister, whose still force combined a mystique even in a teenager role. With Effy as a star impression and centrifugal force for a subsequent dual seasons, a uncover was entirely clinging to chaos, display an even darker side of teen life than before. Effy was self-destructive and impulsive, that manifested in a kind of insanity by a end; she was a eye of a whirly adore triangle between devoted, grounded beloved Freddie (Luke Pasqualino) and her devout match, a rascal Cook (Jack O’Connell), who drank too most and had a span of hoary hands tattooed on his donkey which, for some reason, done Effy wish to fuck him.
Seasons 3 and 4 were noted by a truly uncanny spin that no one could have predicted: a unexpected murder of Freddie during a hands of a sceptical therapist who is stalking Effy, a genocide after avenged during a hands of Cook. It was treacherous and absurd, yet it also didn’t fully matter given Season 4 was ending, and it had been characterized by subtler, tenderer moments, including a storyline in that Emily, a younger of a twin duo, comes to terms with being happy and falls in adore with Naomi. Their intrigue was distant improved fleshed-out than Maxxie’s happy storyline in a initial dual seasons, and would set a theatre for a gender fluidity and passionate investigation explored in a final generation.
Jack O’Connell, who has mostly oral publicly about a approach his real-life teen years mimicked those of Cook’s, clearly became this generation’s biggest star; he has been destined by Angelina Jolie in Unbroken, Jodie Foster in Money Monster, and will execute Alexander McQueen in an arriving biopic. (O’Connell has also, for some reason, been expel in a uncanny volume of wartime duration films, including ‘71, Unbroken, Private Peaceful, and HHhH.)
Kaya Scodelario—who, during their time on a show, indeed antiquated Jack O’Connell in genuine life—was set to be another dermatitis star, yet she’s spin some-more famous during a most steadier gait in a U.S. than her cohort. She’s had a tide of roles in several intensely British movies—The Clash of a Titans remake, Shank, Wuthering Heights—and is now going for that Hollywood money, set to finish her heading purpose in a really good, teen-oriented Maze Runner trilogy and replacing Keira Knightly as a swashbuckling-but-pretty impression in a Pirates of a Caribbean series with a stirring Dead Men Tell No Tales. Weird significant anecdote: she’s married to a dude who’s played both Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson.
You’ll remember immature bae from his star spin as a martial humanities killa in Snowpiercer, and/or a initial time we felt super weird. Luke Pasqualino was in The Borgias, that we theory a lot of people watched, yet should be some-more famous. This year he will be in a film dramatically patrician Solar Eclipse: Depth of Darkness, that is apparently about Partition and a assassination of Gandhi. Word, word.
Kathryn Prescott’s difficult description of Emily Fitch ensured her continued roles, including a lead on MTV’s Finding Carter and a newer purpose in 24: Legacy. On Skins, she acted alongside her IRL twin sister Megan, who is now doing her thing as a bodybuilder.
Other Second Generation Characters: Naomi Campbell (Lily Loveless, who’s a utterly successful British singer of TV and film); JJ Jones (Ollie Barbieri), Pandora Moon (Lisa Backwell) and Thomas Tomone (Merveille Lukeba), WHERE ARE YOU NOW MY Gs?
Tomorrow, we’ll get into a PATHOS of a Third Generation.
