From left to right: Alexander Arnold, Dakota Blue Richards, Sean Teale, Sebastian De Souza, Will Merrick, Laya Lewis, Freya Mavor and Jessica Sula.
Five of them were chosen from the 7000 hopefuls at this year’s open auditions whilst Dakota Blue Richards starred as Lyra in The Golden Compass (2007).
Skins executive producer John Griffin said: “We are really excited about the talent that has come through and we now have a brilliant cast of actors helping to create the exciting new characters for Skins series five.”
The cast will star in the fifth series of Skins which starts in January 2011 on E4.
I’m not sure whether I’m looking forward to the new series yet. The cast already appears as if the series has lost its originality. The hype is definitely over, but I’ll watch religiously out of curiosity.
