INSTYLE – Kaya Scodelario is simultaneously incredibly open, and incredibly polite. When we speak on the phone, the first thing she does is thank me for taking the time to talk to her, before jumping into a conversation rife with casual swear words, addressing me like I’m her best friend. She calls me “love” so many times that it almost feels like we’ve known each other for years — as if she’s calling from around the block, and not London, where she was raised and where she’s currently based with husband Benjamin Walker and their three-year-old son.

“It’s where all my friends and family are, and my dog,” she says. “I love being able to dip into Hollywood and L.A. life, and then come home to the pub.”

It’s easy to imagine being able to sit down with Scodelario for a pint at the end of a long day, venting, trading gossip, and having a laugh. There’s a down-to-earth energy she’s carried since her breakthrough as Effy Stonem in Skins, the gritty British teen drama that ran from 2007 to 2013 and launched her career, as well as those of Nicholas Hoult, Daniel Kaluuya, and Dev Patel, amongst others.

After a ten year break from television, Kaya Scodelario is back and ready for action. She kicked the year off by starring in Netflix’s Spinning Out, an emotionally intense story centred on a figure skater’s return to the ice after a serious injury. She’s also taking the lead in a BBC One and Amazon Studios adaptation of Agatha Christie’s The Pale Horse, set to be released in February.

While Kaya’s certainly got a lot on her plate, Spinning Out is a project she holds especially close to her heart. Following the release of the show, Schön! spoke with the English actress about filming Spinning Out, its biggest challenges and what a second series might look like.

COLLIDER – From show creator Samantha Stratton, the Netflix original series Spinning Out follows Kat Baker (Kaya Scodelario), an elite figure skater who’s trying to make the most of her second chance as a pair skater after a serious fall took her out of competition and allowed her to get way too far into her own head. Teamed up with talented bad boy pair skater Justin (Evan Roderick), Kat realizes that she has the ability to become a champion, but to do so, she’ll have to overcome her own personal demons.

During this 1-ono-1 phone interview with Collider, British actress Kaya Scodelario talked about why this project was so appealing to her, the importance of portraying mental illness correctly, the challenge of training and learning to skate, the extent of her bruises and blisters, the skating move she had the most trouble with, the inspiration she got from ice skater Johnny Weir (who is also in the series), the family dynamic, digging so deep into the Kat-Justin relationship, and her hopes for a possible second season. She also talked about why she wanted to be a part of the Agatha Christie adaptation The Pale Horse for BBC One, and her interest in producing and directing.

On November 10 I had the chance to meet Kaya at the Wicked Is Good convention. I attended the private meeting session with a few other fans and could ask her many questions about her next projects. Find the “interview” down below!

KSD: Congratulations on your nomination at the NFA Awards for your role in Crawl. What was it like to work all day long in water?

Kaya: Thank you! Working 14 hours a day in water was awful. It was exhausting, I was tired, starving, dirty all day long. Fortunately my mom was with me.

KSD: How do you feel when the camera starts rolling? Is it a weird feeling?

Kaya: Strangely it’s when I feel the most comfortable. The camera creates a silence and a peace in my head, because I’m not me anymore. I don’t have to worry about my problems or paying bills or fighting with my husband. I’m just someone else in that moment. The other stuff, the other side of being an actress is what I struggle with: the fame, the pressure and having to seem perfect when nobody is. But when the camera’s rolling it’s peaceful for me. It’s strange, it feels like therapy or an out-of-body experience because my brain switches off and the other person’s switching on.

KSD: Which actors would you like to work with next?

Kaya: I love Helen Mirren, I think she’s amazing and I love her more than anything. Olivia Colman, she’s about to do The Queen on The Crown, I think she’s brilliant. I also really want to work with female directors, it’s what I want to do next. All the women!

Then someone asked her about Spinning Out (coming out on Netflix on January 1st 2020) and if it would be available on Netflix France and I casually answered yes, because… Well it’s Kaya Scodelario, they will. And Kaya said: “She said yes. She’s emailing Netflix now.” Read the rest of this entry »
