When Kat seizes an opportunity to continue her career as a pair skater with a talented bad-boy partner, she risks exposing a fiercely kept secret that could unravel her entire life. On and off the ice, Kat and her new partner will face daunting odds, injury to body and soul, financial sacrifice, and even potential mental breakdown on their way to realizing their Olympic dream.

Kaya Scodelario Bio

Kaya is a British actress of Brazilian, Italian and English descent, who grew up in West Sussex, England. She began her acting career in 2007, when she was cast as Effy Stonem in the beloved British series "Skins," and was one of the only characters to appear in all four seasons of the show.

Scodelario starred as the female lead in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" alongside Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush and Brenton Thwaites. The film was released by Disney on May 11, 2017.

Scodelario is perhaps most widely known in the US for her role in "The Maze Runner" film series, based on the popular novels by James Dashner.

Most recently, Scodelario filmed "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" alongside Zac Efron about the life of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, which will premiere at Sundance in 2019. She also recently starred in the Paramount film, "Crawl," which is an environmental horror set to premiere in 2019.

Scodelario's additional film credits include "Shank," "Clash of the Titans," "Wuthering Heights," "Twenty8k," "Now Is Good," "The Truth About Emanuel" with Jessica Biel, "Tiger House," and "The King's Daughter" with Pierce Brosnan and Benjamin Walker, which does not yet have a release date.
