Last night during Modern Family my roommate looked over at me and said, "You look sad. You’ve looked sad all week." Then five minutes later: "No, I mean you look really sad." Then after the last commercial break: "Oh my God, it’s your ‘I miss Skins‘ face. You’re wearing your ‘Nothing Will Ever Compare to Naomily’ face during the middle of premiere week! You hate everything on American TV because it’s not a British show about teenagers! You should be ashamed of yourself! It’s over, Heather. It’s over!"
"You don’t know what you’re talking about, leave me alone forever!" I shouted and ran up to my bedroom, where I put on Temper Trap‘s "Sweet Disposition" and sobbed "since I was twelve" into my pillow over and over.
The good news is that it’s not really over. The movie is still happening, even though it’s hit a production snag that has pushed back the release date. (And that’s all I know, I swear.) But stuff keeps happening. For starters, Kaya Scodelario Tweeted this little gem a couple of weeks ago, with the caption "I f–king love Lily Loveless."
So, you know, there’s that.
But also! Cellar Door featured Kat Prescott in their "Emerging Talent" issue, and, you guys, does she look just like Meg or am I really losing my mind with Post Traumatic Skins Disorder?
Wait! She’s back to looking like Kat!
And looking like Kat some more. Siiiiigh.
Here are the best tidbits from the interview:
Kat got expelled from college when she was filming 14-hour days on Skins: "Twice, I think, I had to sweet talk my way back in. I had to do my last year of A-levels on my own laptop in Bristol. But I still did the work. I don’t know how!"
She has aspirations beyond acting: "Obviously I want to [act], but if it doesn’t work out I won’t be heartbroken. There are other important things that I think I want to do, so I definitely wanted to get some A-levels, and I really do want to go to uni."
The Skins movie is happening: "They definitely are doing one, but whatever they were doing has been postponed until next summer so they’re not really sure."
Next up for Kat is a BBC3 comedy pilot called Goth. No word on whether it will get picked up as a series yet, but if it does, I’m sure it will be infinitely superior to whatever happens on American TV Premiere Week.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to have another good cry before Grey’s Anatomy tonight.
