Pirates of the Caribbean’s Kaya Scodelario: ‘Johnny Depp inspired me to let go’

Kaya Scodelario is about to hit the big screen with the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

And the Skins actress has revealed she learnt so much from her co-star Johnny Depp, especially when it came to the special effects shots.

The 25-year-old – who plays astronomer Carina Smyth – told Wonderland: “We were just lying on a piece of green screen and we had to pretend to be falling.

“I didn’t know what the f**k I was going to do, and I looked over to him and as soon as they said ‘action’ he was just completely committed, he didn’t care if it made him look silly or weird or strange. That inspired me to let go and get out of my mind.”

Alongside Depp and Scodelario, Orlando Bloom, Kevin McNally and Geoffrey Rush are returning to their roles as Will Turner, Gibbs and Barbossa, and Javier Bardem is joining the franchise’s cast as villain Captain Armando Salazar.

Scodelario also explained more about her character, saying: “She definitely is the most modern female we’ve had in these movies. She wants the right to go to university, she enjoys astronomy, she’s independent; she definitely isn’t ready to just be a wife.

“Most roles I’ve had have been very serious, very emotional and all about breaking myself down — with this I got to enjoy playing off other actors and I learned about comedic timing.”

Yesterday we were also given a glimpse of Sir Paul McCartney in the film, following the example of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, who of course played Jack Sparrow’s dad in At World’s End and On Stranger Tides.

Safe to say we can’t wait to see what Macca’s character brings to the table in the film.

Meanwhile, one trailer for the upcoming film revealed a rather important character return spoiler…

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge – aka Dead Men Tell No Tales – opens on May 26 in the US and the UK.
