25 Breakout Actresses You Need to Know

Kaya Scodelario

Notable Role: Emanuel in Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes (2013)

Across the pond, Kaya Scodelario is a recognizable name. Stateside, however, the only people familiar with her are the teens who watched the UK version of Skins marathon-style on Netflix and/or reblogged GIFs of her iconic character Effy Stonem.

Luckily for us, Scodelario finally made her American debut this year with director Francesca Gregorini's Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes. While the reviews on the film were mixed, critics could agree on the impressiveness of Scodelario's performance as a teenager who develops an obsession for her new neighbor (played by Jessica Biel).
