The wait for Skins fans will soon be over.
The third series is coming to SBS in late August, complete with its (almost) all new cast.
SBS will launch the show at 10:30pm Monday August 31st, following the free to air premiere of Entourage.
The characters include:
Pandora (Lisa Blackwell), Effy’s naive best friend.
Cook (Jack O’Connell) is the cocksure leader of the guys.
Freddie (Luke Pasqualino), a skateboarding pretty boy.
JJ (Ollie Barbieri), the clever one – and master magician.
Naomi (Lily Loveless) is a feisty gal – passionate, principled and often locking horns with others in the group.
Twins Katie： (Megan Prescott) and Emily (Kathryn Prescott, pictured). The first is a social beast, with an older footballer boyfriend and scant regard for others, while the other lives in her sister’s shadow, crippled by shyness.
It’s been a long time in between series, and despite much comment that the new breed of kids doesn’t live up to the original cast, it will be worth checking out.
