Teresa’s arrival into the mysterious Glade takes her fellow teenage captives by surprise: she’s the first girl in their midst. It’s immediately apparent that she has a connection to Dylan O’Brien’s Thomas; a connection that may well explain the Gladers’ confinement. Teresa came into the Glade just right after the movie’s lead protagonist, Thomas (played by Dylan O’Brien) – among the boys, only both of them have repetitious dreams of a mysterious organization of which only the acronym WCKD flashes within their memories.
Kaya Scodelario came to mainstream attention via British TV’s with her first role in E4’s SKINS, which started in 2007. Then 14, Scodelario had never acted before, but she overcame nerves at the audition and became one of the show’s most enduring characters, starring alongside Nicholas Hoult and Jack O’Connell in the show’s four seasons.
She appeared in her feature film debut in 2009, in Duncan Jones’s sci-fi indie “Moon,” and followed it up in 2010 with roles in “Shank” and “Clash of the Titans.” She earned critical plaudits for her turn as Cathy in Andrea Arnold’s stripped-back retelling of “Wuthering Heigths” in 2011 and starred alongside Dakota Fanning and Jeremy Irvine in the romantic drama “Now is Good” in 2012.
“The Maze Runner” will open in theatres this September 17 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
