Skins 7 will see the return of former Skins stars Hannah Murray as Cassie, Jack O’Connell as Cook and Kaya Scodelario as Effy in three individual stories.The three stories will have their very own titles: SKINS PURE (that’s Cassie story), SKINS RISE (Cook’s) and SKINS FIRE (that one is Effy). More news? Go one then… Lily Loveless (Naomi) and Kat Prescott (Emily) will also appear in guest roles.
Skins 7 is written by series creators Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain alongside Jess Brittain, and we’re told it will go into new territory; more adult, more uncompromising. Each two part story centres on the characters now in their early twenties, the party’s over and they’re starting out as young adults, struggling to find a direction and a focus in unforgiving times.
Bryan Elsley, co-creator said; “I am delighted that three emblematic actors, currently embarking on successful movie careers are returning to E4 and Skins. They 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.”
