Kaya Scodelario

The fifth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Dead Men Tell No Tales, has finally cast it’s female lead in the form of The Maze Runner’s Kaya Scodelario.

A relatively unknown actress known for her roles in both TV’s Skins and The Maze Runner (of which it was a small part), but she is looking to have a fairly busy 2015 with the Maze Runner sequel The Scorch Trials and now the fifth Pirates film.

This could be the role that launches both her and her co-star and love interest Brenton Thwaites into the limelight and more larger film roles, just as long as they don’t get it horribly long like the fourth film.

There are also rumours of Orlando Bloom’s character William Turner returning for this film, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, starring  Johnny Depp, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Sodelario, Geoffrey Rush and Javier Bardem is due for release in the UK on 7th July 2017.
