Nicholas Hoult - Tony Stonem
Lead star in the first generation of Skins was Nicholas Hoult playing Tony Stonem. His role in the TV drama (as well as his role in About a Boy when he was just 11-years-old) made him a household name. Nowadays, he's known for his roles in blockbuster films such as X-Men, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Favourite.
The star most recently appeared as Emperor Peter in the hit comedy The Great, and received a Golden Globe-nominated for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy in 2021.
April Pearson - Michelle Richardson
April Pearson played Michelle Richardson in the drama. Since the show, the actress has gone on to land roles in Casualty and other Channel 4 and Netflix shows Kiss Me First, and Dates. We think April looks just as gorge today!
Michelle's close friend was Cassie, played by Hannah Murray. Skins was Hannah's breakthrough role and went on to enjoy success in acting. In 2012, she landed the role of Gilly in Game of Thrones and she has also appeared in international films such as Dark Shadows, alongside Johnny Depp, and Bridgend.
