"They`re just a couple you can`t ignore. It`s in their eyes since the Pilot."
First off I'd just like to say major Congrats are in order for being voted the very first Skins FOTM, Mary. We all know what a HUGE Skins fan you are so you totally deserve to be the first FOTM. And y'all she's got some amazing answers in here so read on! Now let's start the interview!

1. How did you first hear about Skins?

HAHA you`re bringing me back to those days eh? Well,me and my friend Dawn (livelovelaugh) were having a conversation in the BFG (Brucas Fan Girls) forum. So she`d talk about Skins and about how she was nervous cause brand new generation was starting,cast had changed blah blah blah. By that time the first 4 epis of Series 3 had already aired. Anyway,she`d talk non stop about the magic of Skins and about how I should give it a try etc. I was majorly interested when she gave me a brief description of the show but still...I didn`t watch it. THANK GOD,my subscriptions box on YT was filled with lovely Freddie/Effy videos. I just clicked on what cause I instantly saw them together on screen and I was like "WOAH". They simply took my breath away with that classroom scene the fanvid contained...I guess this was the very first Skins scene I...

I am American and just discovered Skins recently and I absolutely love it. I had to do some research though because I didn't understand a lot of the slang like "face" and the school system (in the US 'college' is university and I didn't quite get at first why the characters seemed like they were in high school) I have to say, this show is the best teen angst drama I've ever see, you Brits know how to do it. You would never see Skins on American television depicted this way and it's really refreshing (although I'm 25 but remember those years well), I think I am addicted and want to convert my friends and have our own Skins parties, after all we have to represent America.

No hard feeling about Osama: The Musical, although not to sound typical but I think it's too soon for tongue and cheek humor about it. We're still sore.

More important than that, if they kill of Chris I will vow never to watch the show again. It's been a emotional roller coaster so far with lots of not so happy endings and killing him off would just be over the top. I'm pissed that it seems the writers are building us up that maybe everything will work out just to break our hearts. So not...

4x01 - Thomas
The award-winning drama returns for a fourth series. Cook (Jack O'Connell) is enjoying a summer of debauchery, while Freddie (Luke Pasqualino) is learning that love can take you to the edge of sanity. The gang are enjoying themselves at one of Thomas's (Mervielle Lukeba) club nights until an accident at the club leaves Thomas feeling responsible. He is shocked into questioning his role within society and feeling alienated from his peers, he turns closer to God and the African community - and in doing so, isolates everyone around him.
Writer: Jamie Brittain; Dir: Neil Biswas; Prod: John Griffin; Prod Co Company Pictures

4x02 - could be Emily's or Naomi's
Emily (Kathryn Prescott) and Naomi (Lily Loveless) are back at Roundview and seem as loved-up as ever. When the police turn up, they are both called in to be interviewed. Their names were listed by the family as close friends of Sophia's, even though Emily knows they'd never met her. Emily learns that Naomi was dealing pills with Cook (Jack O'Connell) in the club that night and sold one to Sophia. Behind Naomi's back, Emily visits Sophia's family - she needs to know why the family had...

"He was very romantic." - KAYA

"It's good that he's an actor because he understands it all. And we can practice our lines together. He'll stay with me for a week, and we go to my family's place in Brighton. It's just amazing that we manage to make it work. It just sort of happened. We don't need to try." - KAYA

"I think my type would probably more be the Cook.
the kind of... angry, kind of thing." - KAYA

"I can understand why Effy loves Cook." - KAYA

"It would take a lot for things to be awkward between us." - JACK

"Preferably... Eh, don't know. All the boys seem to like Effy, don't they?" - JACK

"I care about him a lot." - KAYA

"I could've married him." - KAYA

"If you wanna hit me, go right ahead."
"I'm not scared of anything! Hit me."
"I don't want you to say anything; hit me."

» 01 | Because Effy has only ever given two men a compliment in her life: James Cook (brave) and Tony Stonem (amazing).
» 02 | Because they're the only two boys to carry her.
» 03 | Because "you're the only person in the whole world Tony truly cares about" and "the one ****ing girl I have ever loved."
» 04 | Because they both have a lot of UST (yeah, we went there).
» 05 | Because he's her only friend that knows what happened to her brother.
» 06 | Because blue eyes... Need we say more?
» 07 | Because they've both rescued her without drawing blood first.
» 08 | Because "She's mine." vs. "I sort of own her."

On Nick:
"I got linked to Nicholas Hoult when he was in Skins. I was 14 at the time and played his sister! For the record, I’ve never been married to Nick Hoult. I did go out with Jack [who plays Cook] for a year and we were open about that in the press. Filming is an intense environment so it’s natural that relationships happen. We had a good time and I loved him a lot. He was a great first love and we’re still good mates, which is amazing considering most people hate each other when they split up. I was nervous about working with him after we split but it was amicable so we slipped back to being friends very easily."

On body image:
"Being on screen means we’re forced to scrutinise ourselves more than most women. I had terrible self-confidence when I was younger. I was paranoid about being too skinny, I had no boobs and looked like a boy. It got to the point where I wouldn’t wear short sleeves because I hated my skinny arms. I remember filming my first scene in a bikini and I cried and cried. But, as I’ve got older and met some new mates who helped boost my confidence, I’ve accepted that everyone is beautiful in different ways. And a...

If I see another person saying 4x05 was the best Skins episode ever, I'm gonna go insane, so I thought I'd share with you the enormous mistakes the writers have made with Effy's character.

According to the symptoms Effy had in her episode, she is not only psychologically depressed, she is schizophrenic.

Here is the diagnosis for schizophrenia:

People diagnosed with schizophrenia usually experience a combination of positive (i.e. hallucinations, delusions, racing thoughts), negative (i.e. apathy, lack of emotion, poor or nonexistant social functioning), and cognitive (disorganized thoughts, difficulty concentrating and/or following instructions, difficulty completing tasks, memory problems).

The reason I bring this up is not to start a shipping war, I am only doing this because Effy Stonem is my favorite chracter and I think it's a shame they're treating her like this.

November 25th.2009

Jamie Brittain, co-creator of Skins, confirmed this morning on Twitter than Skins series 5, if it is commissioned, and they will hold open auditions for a new cast

To clarify. Skins will hopefully have a fifth series, but we have not yet been re-commissioned. It will have a new cast. We will hold open auditions to cast it. I don’t know any details beyond that. We’re still working on series 4!

It's great being a heart-throb, thank you very much. It's good, it's wierd. I've been acting for a few years, but now this is different. I've had a lot of attention, fan letters through my door, and facebook has gone through the roof with messages and friend requests. I keep pictures girls send me. And i hope i have a lot more of them soon...

Apparently, I'm the new Dev Patel. It happened to him so quickly. But does lightning strike twice? i guess it could happen.

I was number 5,282 in the audition for Freddie. I had to wait for four and a half hours. Nine auditions later i got the part.

Girls may be attracted to me because i'm on tv. I saw Lacey Turner(From Eastenders) in a bar and she's not that amazing looking. The first thing that attracted me to her was her fame

I won't be going off the rails. You won't see me falling out of nightclubs. I'm not a big drinker. I did go out in a Borat mankini once though. My motto is 'Do it properly or stay at home,' so i thought 'Why not?' I had a moustache and everything. I don't think i will be wearing it again.

So now skins is over and our favourite cast is no more, something that brings to tears to anyone's eyes who have come to love skins these past series. The ending was bittersweet and, instead of making us accept that it's the end, want more and have, of course, rose more questions. will sid turn around and see cassie in that shop and run in there and kiss her and those two will finally live their happily ever after that they really deserve. do they come back to bristol, a place where they should be instead of new york of all bloody places? will sid and tony, the two berst friends who's last scene was so heartbreaking that it made me cry, will see eachother again? will jal get over chris's death and meet someone else? what madness would go one with out beloved and extremply fit one, maxxie in london with his boyfriend and anwar who left a distressed and crazy sketch behind? what will happen between tony and michelle?
so many questions and so little answers. the last episode left me furious and open-mouthed in shocked when i realized it was over. i will desperately miss them all apart from maybe michelle who i disliked but maybe it's for the best; the gang won't be the same...

After all it is Skins so...Anyway I hope you all like it it's just a little one not that long so please leave me comments and tell me what you think. Thank you xoxo
P.S (If your Kalina) Okay I know I made Cook seem a bit of an ass cos I hate him but there's a bit in this where he's not a total bastard okay. Happy now?! =D

Setting: Set just after 3x05, When Freddie sees Effy in her bedroom with Cook. This is set a few weeks after this has happened. Cook and Freddie are still not talking. Freddie and Effy are avoiding eachother. Cook and Effy are still kind of seeing eachother. So whatever happened after 3x05 just forget it, It doesn't happen here.

THE new cast of Skins has promised the fifth series will be just as raunchy as ever - but actor Will Merrick says he's GUTTED as he doesn't have any sex scenes.
The E4 teen drama has gained a reputation for its graphic take on sex and drugs during its previous four series.

It returns on January 27 with its third cast - who say they have loved stripping off for their sexy scenes.

But not everyone is getting on in the act, with Will, 17 - who plays pothead Alo Creevey - saying he is annoyed that his character keeps his clothes on.


He said: "I was really excited when I first got my script - I was flicking through it looking for my first sex scene and I don't have one.

"I was gutted. I was really looking forward to getting my kit off. I wanted to get naked. It is not Skins if you don't get naked. It is a real shame."

But there was no such drought for Sean Teale, 18, who plays stud Nick Levan. He has several raunchy scenes with screen girlfriend Mini McGuinness, played by Freya Mavor, 17.

This is taken directly from the dvd commentaries. I noticed a lot of people wanted to know what he had to say about this. This is what he says during the last scene of Cook, Effy and Freddie together.


"The kind of point of this sequence, I suppose, I mentioned it earlier, is that Freddie makes the mistake of thinking of leaving and Cook picks up on that, seeing his bag. And I suppose for that, he's punished, is what Neil(?) the scriptadapter would say if he was here. But that's his kind of transgression - he should've been there for her through thick and thin and realize that something was wrong with her and he eventually does, of course, but it's too little too late. "

Skins star Dakota Blue Richards has dropped hints about the upcoming sixth series.

The actress, who plays Franky Fitzgerald, told Digital Spy that her character will become involved in a controversial new storyline.

"I have a vague idea what's in store," she teased. "It's quite dramatic. I think it's going to be a bit of a 'Marmite' storyline, you're either going to love it or hate it. Hopefully [people will] love it. It's going to be a challenge."

Richards added that she had been "learning all the time" while filming the show's fifth series, which concluded in March.

"We didn't know who our characters would end up being, because they kind of wrote it as we went along," she said. "It was actually a really interesting way of working, because it allowed me to put a lot more of my own thoughts into [the character]."

Chasy represented by Effy
OK, if anyone has seen skins you would know how this would work.
BUt if not i will fill you in. There are going to be 7 characters. And each chapter is going to express on one point of veiw and daily ritaul of a character whilst a story line continues.
Characters are: Pepper(the love wreck) chasy( the group slut), joanne (the reckless party bitch), Jackson (the woman charmer)Nate (the bad influence fuck up,) and lucie (the pregnant nerd)and Tony (the addict), and they are all friends.
i want to start off with Chasy, the group Slut.
(WARNING, EACH CHAPTER WILL HOLD COURSE LANGUAGE AND MILD SCENES)

"CHASY! get your cock-sucking ass down here, you little bitch" FUCK! That was the signal to alert that my so called mother had found my booze hinden in the dishwasher. It was a brilant idea to hide evidence of my activties that would shit her off.
But i dont know why she would care, im surprised she even said even anything, i assumed she would just steal it and drink her despressed self to sleep again, her "medication" is down to the final drops. Still in my undies that were a present from Tony for my birthday and my black lacey bra....

With filming now underway in Northern Ireland and Morocco on HBO's highly anticipated TV fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, it has been announced that Joe Dempsie, a first generation Skins star, has been cast as Gendry, a "horny-headed, hammerhanded" armourer's apprentice.

Joe, from Nottingham, is another alumni of the Nottingham-based Television Workshop (as is fellow Skins star Jack O'Connell) and recently described how he got started in acting and the part in Skins:


So what made you first want to become an actor?
"If I’m being honest, acting wasn’t exactly something that I had a strong desire to do from a young age – but I used to enjoy it when it was compulsory in school. As a result of that when I was thirteen I auditioned for the Television Workshop on Stoney Street. I didn’t get in first time, but then I went back next year and got through – and it was at the workshop that I really learned everything I know. My first part was in a play called Second From Last In The Sack Race, I had two lines, and my main responsibility was to turn the set round, but I loved it! The Workshop was a uniquely supportive, constructive...

HIT teen drama Skins will return with a trio of specials following three characters as they grapple with adulthood.
The E4 drama will explore the themes of loneliness, drug dealing and dodgy financial deals.
Kaya Scodelario will star in Skins Fire which will see Effy working in investment services and having an affair with her boss.
Jack O’Connell who recently split from X Factor judge Tulisa, will return as hot-headed Cook in Skins Rise, which follows him delivering drugs. The third instalment called Skins Pure will star Hannah Murray, whose character Cassie is now racked by loneliness.
They will be joined by other cast members who appeared in the E4 hit over the past six series, including Lily Loveless (Naomi) and Kat Prescott (Emily).

Skins co-creator Bryan Elsley said: “The three will play their iconic characters as they emerge into adulthood, and bring new challenging stories of young adults, grappling with life in Cameron’s Britain, to vivid and entertaining focus.”

SHAMELESS star Elliott Tittensor was under arrest last night on suspicion of attempted murder after a lad of 18 was run over and BLINDED.
The actor - Carl Gallagher in the Channel 4 show - is alleged to have deliberately aimed his sporty BMW Z4 at him and then driven off without stopping.
Tittensor, 20, gave himself up at a police station an hour later and is believed to have passed a breath test.

The drama unfolded at 2am yesterday after Tittensor and girlfriend Kaya Scodelario - Effy Stonem in teen hit Skins - went to a McDonald's in Kentish Town, North London.

Doctors at the nearby Royal Free Hospital first feared the teenager might die from head injuries. He is now stable but is believed to have lost the sight in both eyes.

Kaya, 18 - voted 13th in FHM magazine's 100 world's sexiest women - will be interviewed as a witness.
