After being named 2009's "Summer's Must Bad Girl" by Entertainment Weekly for her portrayal of promiscuous party girl Effy Stonem on the U.K. drama "Skins," Kaya Scoldelario has become one hot commodity.
We named her one of the top 15 up-and-coming British imports, and she was one of the leading contenders for Katniss in "The Hunger Games," an accomplishment considering that list was about 8 million girls long.
Now, according to The Playlist, the 19-year-old Brit is up for some more racy fun in Ol Parker's new indie film "Now is Good." She'll likely play Zoey, the wild best friend of Dakota Fanning's character. Fanning, hopefully with a very convincing British accent, plays a young girl who wants to get her cherry popped before she dies of leukemia, and falls for a young man played by Jeremy Irvine ("War Horse").
Whether Zoey is a matchmaker in the "Emma" mold or a sexy complicator of the situation is unclear, but it could be a splashy part for Scodelario, who already has lead roles in several other films including Catherine for the "Wuthering Heights" remake.
Scodelario Tweeted her involvement on Friday, exclaiming, "Just been told that I'm aloud 2 tell u guys what my next project is!It's called Now Is Good and I'll be working with Dakota Fanning!Excited!"
