‘Spinning Out’ season 1 ended with Kat and Justin’s skating future up within the air. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Kaya Scodelario about whether or not or not she is aware of what’s subsequent, Kat and Justin’s relationship, and extra.
So a lot went down within the Spinning Out finale however the ending left us all on the sting of our seats. Kat and Justin had simply freshly reconciled and headed out onto the ice to start their free skate. Just after they’re about to start out their Romeo & Juliet routine, that’s the place Spinning Out ends. Fans don’t know how these two skaters fare of their quest for the Olympics. HollywoodLife talked EXCLUSIVELY with Kaya Scodelario concerning the ending and she or he revealed that she has no concept how Kat and Justin’s efficiency goes. “I begged the showrunner to tell us,” Kaya mentioned. “Evan and I were like, ‘Tell us what happened.’ Because we felt as though we’d done all this training and we’d pushed ourselves, and it was almost like me and Evan felt like we had been in a real skating competition and we really wanted to know if we’d won or not. But Sam would not tell us. I think it’s quite cool because in that final moment when she looks up at her mom and at Serena, she’s channeling everything that has happened, everything that has led her to this point. I think for me personally, the second she steps into the routine is the win for her. But I really, really want to find out if we won or not.”
Just earlier than their free skate, Kat tells Justin that she actually does love him and all the things about their love is actual. Their love story blossomed over the course of the season and so they ended the season stronger than ever. Just like most Spinning Out followers, Kaya is completely a Kat and Justin shipper. “I think that both characters progress so much because of each other,” Kaya continued. “For Kat, it’s a lot more complicated because she’s dealing with her mental health struggles and her emotions. She has to take a moment to see that what she feels for him is real. But I do believe when she realizes and she lets him know and she knows that she feels safe around him, that’s kind of the most genuine moment that she has in the entire show. I do think they’re good for each other. I think Justin’s character develops so nicely because of her. He’s able to open up, he’s able to love, he’s able to let go of being the bad boy. I really loved them as a couple.”
To play Kat, Kaya didn’t simply need to discover ways to ice skate, she needed to put together to play somebody residing with bipolar. This just isn’t an unfamiliar topic for Kaya, however she wished to verify she depicted somebody residing with bipolar dysfunction in the proper manner. “Bipolar, in particular, I have dealt with growing up in very close proximity and it’s something that I’ve always been very private about,” Kaya mentioned. “I’m not completely certain why, however I’ve at all times probably not spoken about it and I haven’t wished to inform any tales that contain psychological well being as a result of I at all times felt as if they weren’t portraying it truthfully, and it was disrespectful in direction of people who I like that do battle with it. With Spinning Out, I spoke to Sam [Stratton] concerning the improvement of it and the explanation why. I may instantly inform that they’d executed their analysis and that was a very powerful factor to me.”
Kaya admitted that she’s learn “so many scripts that handle mental health and bipolar particularly badly.” However, Spinning Out was totally different. “Every symptom, every emotion that Kat feels or experiences along with Carol, I’ve seen first-hand,” Kaya continued. “I’ve done a lot of research with a charity called MIND that works in mental health. I’ve worked with them before on previous projects. I went and spoke to my family members’ therapists and discussed it with them because I wanted it to be a good thing if that makes sense. I want the takeaway from this to be that we can talk and we can depict it. Let’s have that conversation. Let’s start that dialogue.”
In addition, Kaya additionally learn a number of blogs and watched YouTube movies of former skaters to “try and understand the darker side of the skating world.” A significant side of Kat’s journey is coping with her PTSD and overcoming her fears after a nasty damage. “What we see on the Olympics is all smiles and sparkles, but the truth is that it’s a lot darker than that,” Kaya mentioned. “A lot of skaters have experienced severe mental health problems because of training or because of coaches or for various other reasons. But I did a lot of that research to kind of put it all together. Then the kind of final step was to make sure that I wasn’t triggered, so I had my therapist on hand. She would call me, I would call her. I had my husband with me and my best friend. When I got home from a long day, she’d pour me a glass of wine and we’d talk. She’d talk about work, but then we’d talk about her love life or who she’s matched with on Tinder and these kinds of silly things that helped me get back to being me.”
Spinning Out hasn’t been renewed for season 2 by Netflix but however Kaya has concepts of what she’d wish to see in future episodes. “I kind of want to keep following Kat and Justin and I would love to see the kind of storylines between Kat and Serena develop more because I just love that relationship in the show,” Kaya mentioned. “I think it’s so precious. I’d love a little bit more of that.”
