“Funnily enough, they never physically auditioned any of us. They never checked to see if we can actually run, or if we don’t look like idiots running, so they got quite lucky, cos it could have been more like this…” - Kaya Scodelario.
I had no plans on ever being in the public eye or being an actor or any kind of celebrity. I was just, you know, having fun, making videos as a little kid and putting them on the internet. And one thing led to another, and I kinda just hopped into the acting business.
I think it was the best way for it to happen to me because I was filled with so much doubt as a kid. I never deemed this career truly possible in my mind, so being thrown into it really helped because it gave me a lot of confidence that this is something I am meant to do for the rest of my life.
I just happened to step into acting. And nowI can’t imagine myself doing anything else.
