Check out the hot new cast of Skins – which, on first glance, seems to be almost a throwback to the landmark first cast. And there’s some big news: a very brace-faced Dakota Blue Richards, known for her childhood role in The Golden Compass, has joined the cast. She tells E4: “I’ve been asking for years to get a part on Skins because I’ve always loved the series and wanted to be in it. Finally this year I’m old enough to play a part! It’s crazy to be part of this Skins phenomenon, it’s as much a lifestyle choice as anything because of the attention that comes with it. We are eight friends on screen as well off screen so we have the same dynamic that you’ll see in the series.” Lifestyle choice indeed – will her new character participate in all the boozing and boffing that takes place on the show?
Well, our little girl, now 16, is “all grows up” and ready to party! Remember Dakota as a little tyke in The Golden Compass?
