Kaya Scodelario Talks Maze Runner Action And Glade Tasks!

The Maze Runner

At WonderCon, I met the Maze Runner cast and crew, stars Dylan O'Brien and Will Poulter, author James Dashner and director Wes Ball. Comic-Con was the first time I got to meet Kaya Scodelario. I saw her Sundance film The Truth About Emanuel, back when it was called Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, so I asked her about going from that to a big action movie.

"Emanuel was a very special film and it's totally different to this which is what I love," Scodelario said. "It was very indie and it was very low budget and still a lot of the time. This was really exciting because I got to run around and be really physical for the first time. Being part of such a big cast that is so fully rounded, we all feel so like a family, to think of it as people being on different levels is so strange to us because we never were. We were always on the same level when it came to anything. It's lovely to be a part of that now."

Based on a popular fan question, I asked Scodelario if she was in The Glade, which task would she perform. "I'd want to do something a bit hippie," she said. "I'd be the spiritual counselor or something. Creative, art work shop."

The Maze Runner is out September 19.
