Skins Generation 2: Where are they now?

The second generation of Skins stars made a splash when they debuted in 2009.
But you might wonder what they are up to now. A surprising number of the cast of seasons three and four found fame after the BAFTA-winning show finished.

Kaya Scodelario – Effy Stonem

Scodelario played the badass Effy, Tony’s younger sister in seasons one to four. Effy eventually ended up in prison for insider trading.
Scodelario starred in 2009’s sci-fi hit Moon and 2011’s adaptation of Wuthering Heights.
Later, she found fame in The Maze Runner and its sequels, as well as in this year’s Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Lisa Backwell – Pandora Moon
The dysfunctional but adorable best-friendship between Effy and Pandora played out in seasons three and four, in a similar fashion to Sid and Tony in seasons one and two.
Backwell found some success in acting since leaving the Skins cast, starring opposite Keira Knightley in a 2011 production of The Children’s Hour.
She also was a guest star on ITV’s Endeavour in 2012, as well as a couple of other shorts.
In 2015, sources close to the star said she had retired from acting and that she was living in Bristol and studying finance. But according to her Twitter profile, she is studying chemistry and enjoys cycling.
Backwell was even selling her original dress from the Skins promo shoot.
She appeared to have kept in touch with her Skins cast-mates, and used to tweet about them often.
Merveille Lukeba – Thomas Tomone
Lukeba’s character Thomas was involved romantically with Pandora, after emigrating from the Congo to Bristol.
He made a mistake when he slept with his pastor’s daughter, and struggled to make ends meet, initially squatting in an abandoned flat.
The actor has continued working since leaving Skins, with guests spots in various shows including a 2012 episode of Lewis.
Despite a hiatus, Lukeba returned to the screen in 2016 in A United Kingdom.

Jack O’Connell – James Cook
Jack O’Connell has seen massive success since leaving Skins in 2013. His Skins character was wild and abrasive, a bit of a lad, but did show his emotions at points.
In love with Effy, he sparred with best friend Freddie, and eventually seemed to get the girl albeit in tragic circumstances.
After leaving Cook behind, O’Connell has starred on the silver screen in various films including Starred Up and was directed by Angelina Jolie in ’71 and Unbroken.
He continues to work as an actor and appeared in Godless, and is even slated to play Alexander McQueen in an upcoming, untitled project about the fashion legend.
