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.

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.

Happy new year everybody! Hope this year will be filled with joy and success for each and every one of you. Thanks for the tremendous support over the last year. In a month we will celebrate the 2 years anniversary of Kaya Scodelario Daily and I am so grateful!

 

January 2020 means Spinning Out is now available on Netflix everywhere! Kaya shared this statement on her Instagram account :

Can not tell you how excited I am for you all to see @spinningoutnetflix IN ONE DAY!! – just want to take a second to say that the subjects of depression and mental illness are something that I am really proud of our show for highlighting in an honest & compassionate way. I’ve learnt so much about Bipolar disorder from playing Kat and just wanna take a second to make you aware that we do show some scenes of self harm and extreme mania. I feel like it’s important to put this trigger warning out there – We’ve done our best to highlight the difficulties of living with mental Illness whilst still showing the beautiful, passionate & typically complex sides to being a young person. Kat is both. She’s brave and afraid, tough and vulnerable, scared and empowered. I hope you enjoy seeing her journey. Thank you @samanthaportstratton for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this. Thank you @netflix for making shows like this. And thank you guys for (hopefully) giving it your time ⛸✨ ps. Skaters are BADASS ❤️❤️
