Kaya Scodelario, Resident BAMF
Though the only female member of the entire cast, Kaya Scodelario plays a pivotal role as Theresa. Though book fans were sad to learn that Thomas and Theresa’s telepathic connection from the book isn’t explicitly explored in the film, Ball assured the audience that it was communicated in actions rather than cheesy voiceovers.
O’Brien and Poulter were liberal in their praise of Scodelario, saying that they don’t believe another girl could have played the part.
“We all loved Kaya. She was the only girl in the movie, only girl in a cast full of guys," said O’Brien.
The actors recounted that Scodelario’s first moments on set really showed she was a force to be reckoned with. Poulter recalled that all the guys were, “throwing sports equipment at each other,” something he was quick to not recommend to audience members.
Kaya arrived, cigarette in her mouth, caught a football that was coming towards her, and threw it right back with perfect form. (x)
My boo since forever.
