Kaya Scodelario is a sexual assault survivor, but she's not letting that label define her.
In October 2017, the British actress—known for her roles in The Maze Runner series and Pirates of the Caribbean—further amplified the #MeToo movement by sharing her own account of being assaulted at only 12-years-old.
She accused "family members in Brazil" of protecting the individual, and claimed on Twitter that they've "sold lies to papers to try to silence me."
Now months later, Kaya opened up to Metro U.K. about the downsides she didn't expect to face by coming forward publicly. "The response was wonderful, it was a relief but I am still dealing with it, and I am now dealing with a new side of it, which is this,' she shared.
