Kaya Scodelario at The Maze Runner Conference
For me, what I enjoyed the most was when me and Dylan spent the day on the top of the tree together… and it was just so random. And it kind of is the beauty of this job. […] And it was the first day where we… we’d become friends but I think it’s where we kind of really spend time together as actors. And for me it was just a beautiful day of work, because I got to be one on one with him and see the magic he makes.

"The one thing I never wanted her to be was the token female who was just scared and everyone was protecting. She doesn’t need protecting.

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 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.

"I’m obsessed with the 60s and 70s music scene, so I would love to portray a character of that time. I love the fashion, music and youth movement of it all. My favourite band is The Rolling Stones, and I’d love to play a young Keith Richards. Like most British actors, I’d love to be in a Bond film, but I want to be the one who finally kills Bond, and doesn’t sleep with him.”
