Kaya Scodelario has showed off her engagement ring for the first time after announcing her engagement to Benjamin Walker in December. The 22-year-old posted two pictures to her Instagram account which also showed a tattoo of her fiancée's name on the inside of her ring finger.

The former Skins actress accepted the 32-year-old's proposal in December after a whirlwind romance. The couple met on the set of The Moon And The Sun in April, and Kaya has admitted that they were friends for a couple of months before their relationship blossomed.

"We were originally friends, then after two months of shooting, we both said, 'Ok, I really like you'" Kaya told InStyle.

The actress is now living in New York with Benjamin, but the couple are often forced to spend long periods apart due to their busy acting careers.

"We spend so much time apart it's great to get a stretch of time together," she said.

Benjamin presented Kaya with a diamond solitaire ring when he proposed in December. After the proposal the bride-to-be shared a picture of them hugging and smiling together on Instagram.

"@findthewalker thank you for making me the happiest woman in the world," she wrote, adding a heart emoticon.

Kaya was previously in a long-term relationship with Shameless actor Elliott Tittensor until they split in 2013.
