Kaya Scodelario | All about the English actress who is the daughter of a Brazilian

Learn more about the actress who will soon be in the Resident Evil adaptation.


Kaya Scodelario is already a well-known name in the film industry. She is best known for playing Effy Stonem in the TV series skins and Teresa Agnes in the movie trilogy Maze Runner: Run or Die, in addition to being the protagonist in the film Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge.

When she was in Brazil for the promotion of Maze Runner, she ended up surprising many people who expected answers from the actress in English and she ended up talking in Portuguese with journalists and fans. The reason? Kaya is the daughter of Katia Scodelario, a Brazilian, who moved to England in 1990 and from Roger Humphrey, a Brit.

She was raised by her mother after her parents separated when she was still a child, thus adopting her surname and becoming fluent in portuguese.

complicated adolescence

Don't expect her to have some skeletons in her closet. Kaya had serious problems with bullying in her adolescence and to escape this, and have more confidence in herself, she decided to learn acting, where she ended up falling in love with the art. His first play was at school, called Oliver.

Sexual harassment

Unfortunately, the entertainment world is still toxic, with professional people who only choose actresses - and actors - if they do what they want! And this happened to Kaya who revealed on her social network that a director Noel Clarke offered her a role, but as long as she was naked in front of him! At the time of the revelation, the actor and director already had 20 women's charges against him.

“I auditioned for a job a few years ago. It said 'she just needs to come in.' Take off your clothes and that's it'. I was terrified. Fortunately, I have an agent who quickly said that this would not happen at all. This was a great movie. A great director. A great 'opportunity'”


This is a serious problem for Dyslexia sufferers and especially for actors, as they live from having to read scripts and memorize their lines. And Kaya is one of the people in show business who will have to live with that for a lifetime.
