Skins Cast: Where Are They Now?

Oscar noms, X-Men movies and Game Of Thrones...


Ten years ago, a teen drama with all of the swagger of seminal controversial movie Kids and a finger on the beating pulse of new youth behaviour (ok, an idealised version, but still) burst onto screens and changed the lives of its fans. Set to the tub-thumping soundtrack of the zeitgeist capturing "Standing In The Way Of Control" by Gossip, Skins became an immediate cult gem, watched by millions and seemingly adopted as a bible for countless more.

And it's easy to forget that the show was also the starting point - or at least a new launch-pad - for some seriously talented British actors who have since gone on to take major film roles, win multiple Oscar and BAFTA nominations and capture whole new fanbases in Westeros and beyond.

With 2017 seeing the big anniversary for the show (I know, it feels horrible to even acknowledge it's been a decade), now is the perfect time to look back at some of the key cast from the first season (plus a couple of ringers) and to what they've been up since their characters left screens...
