Gaia Scodellaro was born on July 15th, 1985 in Naples, Italy. As a child, she was heavily influenced by her mother's experiences as a professional dancer giving her the first glimpse of how one can captivate an audience and the first insight into creating art through performance.
Her dream of acting, however, was not realized until her years at Manhattanville College in New York, where her shy and reserved personality was overcome by a newfound confidence in her craft.
Between 2011 and 2014 she continued to pursue her acting career working on Italian tv series such as Cugino e Cugino, Centovetrine, Le Mani Dentro la Città, Squadra Antimafia 6 e Le Tre Rose di Eva. Online with the web series STUCK- The Chronicles of David Rea, Vera Bes, Horror Vacui, Duelli: L'una per L'Altra and Forse Sono Io 2. She was also cast in the Kristoph Tassin film Watch Them Fall and Francesco Cinquemani's Andron - The Black Labyrinth alongside Alec Baldwin, Danny Glover, Gale Harold and Leo Howard. In early 2015 she was chosen to play Sister Celine in the critically acclaimed NBC / SKY series You, Me and the Apocalypse sharing the screen with Rob Lowe, Megan Mullally, Jenna Fischer, Mathew Baynton, and Pauline Quirk.
