Former Skins actress Kaya Scodelario has told people not to get too excited about her forthcoming television drama Love Life. Kaya revealed that, while she does play the lesbian lover of Billie Piper in the show, there is actually no sex scenes, although the couple do have the occasional on screen kiss. Kaya also admitted that she was nervous about improvising for the first time.
Scodelario explained, "I think the main focus of the programme is to put these two women in a situation and understand the connection and emotions without it being a sexual thing. There are no sexual scenes. I hope people can watch it and understand that genuinely, and not just think, 'Oh she's getting it off with Billie Piper'. Which obviously they will think, because I did too!"
She added, "Working with Billie was really, really good. It was scary taking on that role, having to have an emotion with a woman like that. The whole idea of love and relationships is my favourite thing to do on camera. So it was great to push it a step further and do it with a woman.”
Kaya concluded, “Not one word was written down on paper. It's terrifying, until you find a natural rhythm. Everybody was nervous about it, so I wasn't the only one. I think David Tennant had a panic attack before his first day because he didn't know what to say!" The five part series, Love Life is set to hit the BBC next year.
