Pirates of the Caribbean star Kaya Scodelario joins the FACTS actor line-up

Also known for the The Maze Runner trilogy, Skins and more

The British actress Kaya Scodelario is best known as Carina Smyth in Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge, as Teresa in the The Maze Runner film trilogy and as Effy Stonem in the series Skins, among many other roles. She will be joining Sex Education's Asa Butterfield and Once Upon A Time's Rebecca Mader as the third actor for FACTS' Spring edition, on April 4-5 in Flanders Expo Ghent.

Actress Kaya Scodelario is no stranger to big blockbuster productions. Fans of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge (aka Dead Men Tell No Tales) will remember her fondly as the adventurous and intelligent Carina Smyth, a refreshing and empowering female lead role that earned her praise from press and viewers alike.

She was also one of the main characters in the entire The Maze Runner movie trilogy, as Teresa. With her acting talents - and that of her co-stars - she managed to have many viewers invested in this new intriguing universe, from start to end, making the whole production a huge success.

Even more lead roles in Kaya Scodelario's career include - to name just a few - Effy Stonem in the highly appraised British drama series Skins, Kat Baker in the Netflix original series Spinning Out, Haley in the 2019 horror movie Crawl, Carol Ann Boone in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile - the movie about the infamous American serial killer Ted Bundy - and Hermia Easterbrook in the mystery series The Pale Horse, based off of Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name.

Scodelario’s additional film credits include Shank, Clash of the Titans, Wuthering Heights, Twenty8k, Now Is Good, The Truth About Emanuel with Jessica Biel, Tiger House, and The King’s Daughter with Pierce Brosnan and Benjamin Walker, which does not yet have a release date. We can't wait to see more of her acting talents in the future.

Kaya Scodelario will be available at FACTS, on April 4-5 2020, in Flanders Expo Ghent, for photoshoots, autograph sessions and spectacular Q&A shows. Tickets & info on www.facts.be
