Skins actress Kaya Scodelario has revealed that her co-star Jessica Biel helped to ease her into Hollywood.

The actress, who played Cathy in Angela Arnold's Wuthering Heights, was away from home for work for the first time when she filmed indie film Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes with Total Recall star Jessica.

The 21-year-old plays a grieving teenager who becomes obsessed with her new neighbour Linda (Jessica) who bears an uncanny resemblance to her dead mother.

Kaya said: "She was very, very lovely. I didn't know who was cast at first and I was really worried that it would be some diva American actress that would put me off ever wanting to act, but she was really sweet, a real person.

"She was very motherly, she looked after me a lot and made sure I was comfortable. I was away from home for the first time working so she made sure everything was OK with my hotel and I knew where to eat and stuff like that. She was really sweet."

Aneurin Barnard also stars in Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes, which premiered at Sundance London festival on April 26.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
