get to know me meme: [3/5] shows → Skins UK
I think it’s about staying- you know, be an actor if you really love the art of it. Don’t chase fame, don’t want to be a celebrity because that isn’t important in life. I think what’s important is doing what makes you happy and great in something beautiful that you’re comfortable with and I don’t agree with the celebrity culture. I think young girls should be inspired to wanna be doctors or lawyers or strong women, not celebrities. So I think if it’s what you want to do, do it because you love the work and no other reason.
I felt there needed to be a show for teenagers that didn’t make them feel judged. ‘Skins’ never tried to preach. It allowed young people to make their own decisions about what to do and whether it was right or wrong. Young people really respond to that, and that’s what sets ‘Skins’ apart.
