There are 3 different Skins tv tropes pages (one for the British TV series, one for the film and one for the webcomic) and the character page was exclusively for the Skins TV series. This creates confusion. I've created separate character pages for each Skins page (1 for the Tv series, one for the film and one for the webcomic) and edited this page so readers can find them via the links.
Skins introduces a new cast of characters every two seasons. The US cast section could use some work. ---- [[foldercontrol]] [[folder: First Generation]] !The Kids !!Anthony "Tony" Stonem -->Played by: Nicholas Hoult * AffablyEvil * [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Bi]]: It's never made clear whether his dalliance with [[spoiler: Maxxie]] is just an experiment or if he's actually bisexual. Michelle's comment below only came after the fact. * AnythingThatMoves: As Michelle says, "He sleeps with everyone, even boys!" * BigBrotherInstinct * BitchInSheepsClothing: Mainly to adults. * BreakTheHaughty * ByronicHero * CharacterDevelopment: In Season 2. * DepravedBisexual * DracoInLeatherPants: In-universe, even. * MrFanservice * EvenTheGuysWantHim: Subverted in that [[spoiler: when Tony actually gets round to sleeping with Maxxie, it turns out that some guys don't want him after all]]. * TheFriendNobodyLikes * GeniusBookClub * HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Almost resulted in RedemptionEqualsDeath in the Season 1 finale, but he recovered.]] * HeelRealization * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Sid. * InsufferableGenius: With one exception; see TedBaxter below. * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Eventually * LackOfEmpathy: In Season 1. * LookBothWays: [[spoiler: He gets better.]] * ManipulativeBastard * TheMasochismTango: With Michelle. * NietzscheWannabe: Lampshaded in Sid's Season 1 episode, where Tony is actually seen reading ''Thus Spake Zarathustra''. * ReallyGetsAround * ScrewYourself: Arguably, combined with IntimatePsychotherapy, [[spoiler: Tony has sex with himself when he has sex with Beth in Season 2, episode 6.]] * SmugSnake * SociopathicHero * TedBaxter: Mostly averted, as Tony truly is an InsufferableGenius, but it is implied that his sexual prowess is not what he believes it to be. According to [[spoiler: Maxxie]], [[spoiler: giving head]] is the "one thing [Tony's] not actually good at," and in Season 2 Michelle says that [[spoiler: Sid]] is the first person to make her come, meaning that Tony never has. So while he may be good at getting people into his bed, he's apparently not so great at satisfying them once they're there. * ToxicFriendInfluence * TheVamp: Male example. * VillainProtagonist: Season 1. * WickedCultured !!Michelle Richardson -->Played by: April Pearson * EmbarrassingNickname: "Nips," Tony's less-than-flattering nickname for her. * GeniusDitz: Though she's easily dismissed by many of the characters - and even by herself - as a vapid pretty girl, Michelle is actually a pretty good student, especially when it comes to languages. In the generation finale, this is solidified by Michelle [[spoiler: tieing with Tony for the best A-level grades in their group of friends]], surpassing even [[TheSmartGuy Jal]]. * GreenEyes * HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler: When Tony gets hit by a bus at the end of Season 1]]. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Jal. * {{Ojou}} * RomanticFalseLead: For [[spoiler: Sid]]. * TheMasochismTango: With Tony. * WomanScorned: In her Season 1 episode. !!Sidney "Sid" Jenkins -->Played by: Mike Bailey * {{Antihero}}: Type I. * BigEater * ButtMonkey * CordonBleughChef * FunTShirt: He has one with a talking dog on it, that tends to go off at inappropriate times. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Tony. * LoveHurts: With Cassie. * AManIsNotAVirgin: Plot of the very first episode. -->'''Tony''': It's embarrassing. -->'''Sid''': It's common and quite normal for someone of sixteen-- -->'''Tony''': --No. It's ''embarrassing'', Sid. -->'''Sid''': ...Shit. * NatureAbhorsAVirgin * NerdGlasses: But of course. * NotAMorningPerson * ThePigpen: A minor example. * RomanticFalseLead: For [[spoiler: Michelle]]. * SlapSlapKiss: With Cassie, in Season 2. * SlobsVersusSnobs: With [[SmugSnake Tony]]. * ThemeNaming: Sid's father's side of the family are all variants of Alexander (Alex, Sandy, Lex and Ally). Sid spots that his he and his father (Mark) are the [[OddNameOut Odd Names Out]], marking them for black sheep and outcast status. * ThisLoserIsYou * TheUnfavourite: Despite the fact that he hasn't got any siblings Sid is constantly overshadowed by Tony. Mr. Jenkins' voice becomes completely different when he's talking to Tony, as opposed to yelling at Sid. And in his Season 2 episode, Sid and his dad are both unfavorites, to his uncle and cousins. !!Cassandra "Cassie" Ainsworth -->Played by: Hannah Murray * AnythingThatMoves / ReallyGetsAround: An InformedAttribute [[spoiler: until Season 2]]. * [[spoiler: BeneathTheMask]]: In Season 2. * CloudCuckoolander * CoolShades * DitzyGenius: Mainly in Season 2. In her episode, she spends most of her philosophy exam chatting to her teacher and dancing to "Funkytown." She sits down to write for the last hour and seemingly aces the test. On top of that, Cassie is a genius at reading people (almost telepathic in her accuracy) as well as reading [[GeniusBookClub heavy books]]. * DrivenToSuicide / SpurnedIntoSuicide. ** InterruptedSuicide: Thanks to Jal. * DullSurprise: Occasionally, such as when she catches [[spoiler: Jal and Chris]] having sex. * [[spoiler: TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest]]: While she's not in a relationship with him, the death of [[spoiler: Chris]] definitely affects her this way. * FlowerInHerHair: [[spoiler: When she attempts suicide.]] * ForgetsToEat: As part of her anorexia, Cassie refuses to eat. * GeniusBookClub * GenkiGirl: Appears that way at first. * HesDeadJim: Has this reaction [[spoiler: when Chris dies]]. * IJustWantToBeBeautiful * LoveHurts: With Sid. * ManicPixieDreamGirl: Of the "deconstructed" variety. She isn't just quirky, she has ''multiple'' legitimate psychological problems which are depicted with all the seriousness they require. Also, said problems are just as, if not more, integral to her storyline as her relationship with Sid. * TheMessiah: Appears that way at times during Season 1, especially in her "Unseen Skins" episode. She definitely isn't one in Season 2, however. * [[spoiler: MistakenForCheating]] * MotorMouth * ObfuscatingInsanity: Despite having real mental health issues, she does this at times, sometimes combined with ObfuscatingStupidity. * ParentalSubstitute: For her brother. * PlatonicLifePartners: With Chris. * TheOphelia: Played with throughout the two series. It can whiplash between funny ("I'm thinking of leaving school, growing a beard, and joining the circus") to just plain disturbing (Effy's Season 2 episode.) * QuirkyCurls * [[spoiler: TheRunaway]]: [[spoiler: When she returns from Scotland.]] * SlapSlapKiss: With Sid in Season 2. * TheSocialExpert: Takes it to an almost telepathic level, especially in Season 2. * StickyFingers * StepfordSmiler * StrangeGirl * SuperOCD: A mild example. * ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: In her Season 1 episode, she keeps getting texts telling her to '''EAT!''' on her phone, and seeing the word spelled out elsewhere. Nobody is texting her. They are all just hallucinations. * [[spoiler: TookALevelInJerkass]]: In season 2 [[spoiler: when she becomes a JerkassWoobie for a time.]] * VerbalTic / CatchPhrase: "Oh. Wow. Lovely." * WomanInWhite * WomanScorned: Throughout Season 2. !!Chris Miles -->Played by: Joe Dempsie * {{Antihero}}: Type I. * [[spoiler: BloodFromTheMouth]] * CantGetAwayWithNuthin * CatchPhrase: "Fuck it". * [[spoiler: DiedInYourArmsTonight]] * FunTShirt * [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile]] * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * LifeOfTheParty: Well, they all are, but Chris more than anyone. * MaleFrontalNudity * TheMessiah: He loves everyone and everything [[spoiler: as Jal lampshades in her speech at his funeral.]] * NewJobEpisode: His season 2 episode. * NiceGuy * [[spoiler: ObiWanMoment]] * OppositesAttract: With Jal. [[spoiler: Admittedly, though, it was only after each of them brought out a little of each other - Chris getting Jal to show her wilder side, and Jal getting Chris to make responsible decisions.]] * ParentalAbandonment * PlatonicLifePartners: With Cassie. * SecondLove: [[spoiler: When he chooses Jal over Angie.]] * TheStoner: Perhaps also the EruditeStoner. * TeacherStudentRomance: With Angie. * [[spoiler: TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]] * TraumaCongaLine: His backstory. * TheUnfavorite: How his parents treat him. His dad even goes so far as to only have photos of Peter. * UptightLovesWild: GenderFlipped with Jal. * [[spoiler: [[WrongGuyFirst Wrong Girl First]]]] !!Jalander "Jal" Fazer -->Played by: Larissa Wilson * BlackAndNerdy: -->'''Chris''': You don't have sex, do you? You have clarinet lessons. * [[spoiler: BrokenBird]]: In Series 2. * CloserToEarth * DeadpanSnarker * ElegantClassicalMusician * [[spoiler: TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest]] * [[spoiler: GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion]]: Averted [[spoiler: when Jal gets an abortion in Series 2, so she can continue on with her music studies at Uni]]. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Michelle. * [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Tends to play the voice of reason among the characters. * OppositesAttract: With Chris. * TheSmartGuy: She tends to play this role, even though Tony and Cassie are arguably smarter. * TeamMom * [[spoiler: TeenPregnancy]] * TokenMinority * UptightLovesWild: GenderFlipped with Chris. * YouAreACreditToYourRace: Gets a speech like this from the school administration when she's being interviewed for being a BBC Young Musician Of The Year finalist. They go on and on about how Jal is from a "disadvantaged background" when, actually, her father is a famous musician and she's probably the most well-off of the group. !!Maxxie Oliver -->Played by: Mitch Hewer * AllGaysLoveTheater: Dancing is more his thing, but he does love the theater. * BillyElliotPlot * CampGay: A mild example, but he loves dancing and theater. * ClubKid: Although he's one of the most balanced characters of the show and is one of the few characters who isn't seen using drugs. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Anwar, although obviously minus the "heterosexual" as far as Maxxie goes. * MrFanservice: Ironically enough. * NiceGuy * OnlySaneMan: More or less. Still has his issues, but handles them a lot better than most of his friends. * PerformanceArtist * ShirtlessScene: With nudity. * ThoseTwoGuys: With Anwar, particularly in the first series. * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Well, fairly light blonde. !!Anwar Kharral -->Played by: Dev Patel * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Maxxie. * HeyItsThatGuy: Dev Patel got his big break in ''SlumdogMillionaire'' not long after ending his tenure on ''Skins''. * PluckyComicRelief: Especially true in Season 2, where Anwar's storyline seemed to exist to provide a bit of a fun MoodWhiplash in the midst of the DarkerAndEdgier arcs surrounding the other characters. * StrawHypocrite: Anwar is perfectly fine breaking Islam's rules regarding drugs, drinking and premarital sex, but suddenly clings to his religion as an excuse for his homophobia. Maxxie calls him out on it in their episode. * ThoseTwoGuys: With Maxxie, particularly in the first series. * TwoferTokenMinority !!Elizabeth "Effy" Stonem -->Played by: Kaya Scodelario * BigBrotherWorship * BrotherSisterIncest: YMMV, but Tony and Effy give off...vibes...at times. * BitchInSheepsClothing: Mostly to her parents. * TheChessmaster * EmotionlessGirl * GeniusBookClub * {{Kuudere}} * OddFriendship: With Pandora. * ParentalFavoritism: Her mother definitely prefers her over Tony. * SilentBob: In Season 1. * StepfordSmiler: Gets hinted at in her Season 2 episode, when Tony says her reserve and stoicness don't fool him; however, it's not really fully explored until Generation 2. * TheStoic !!Sketch (Lucy) -->Played by: Aimee-Ffion Edwards * AbhorrentAdmirer: Creepy and completely ignores... * IncompatibleOrientation * StalkerWithACrush: Towards Maxxie. * {{Yandere}}: She's not violent like this trope usually implies, but she's definitely unstable and doesn't really care who she has to hurt to get to Maxxie. !Family !!Anthea Stonem -->Played by: Morwenna Banks * AdultsAreUseless: Useless. Ignores Tony and Effy. * ParentalFavoritism: In Effy's favor. !!Jim Stonem -->Played by: Harry Enfield * BerserkButton: Calling thighs sexy. * BumblingDad * CannotTellAJoke !!Anna Richardson -->Played by: Arabella Weir * HotMom !!Scarlett -->Played by: Sia Berkeley * DaddysGirl * FieryRedhead * JerkWithAHeartOfGold * LifeOfTheParty !!Mark Jenkins -->Played by: Peter Capaldi * CallingTheOldManOut: Both the receiver and giver. * ClusterFBomb: Often speaks in these. He's [[TheThickOfIt Malcolm Tucker]], what do you expect? * JerkAss: he gets better though * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * [[spoiler: OneLastSmoke]] * [[spoiler: PeacefulInDeath]] * PunctuatedForEmphasis: Lampshaded. --> Sid: Why are you talking in very short sentences? --> Mark: Emphasis! Drama! Fuck off! * TheUnFavourite !!Elizabeth Jenkins -->Played by: Josie Lawrence * ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In contrast to her husband. !!Marcus and Margeritte Ainsworth -->Played by: Neil Morrissey and Naomi Allisstone * ChuckCunninghamSyndrome * HandsOffParenting * ParentalObliviousness * WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's never explained what happened to them, although we assume they are still in Elgin. !!Graham Miles * DramaticIrony: [[spoiler: Graham's decision to un-invite Chris's friends to his funeral, because they were the ones who "screwed him up." The audience, however, knows the opposite is true: his friends were the ones who cared about and looked after Chris after his parents both abandoned him. If not for his friends, he probably would have died a lot sooner.]] * ParentalAbandonment * IHaveNoSon: Not quite, but he doesn't acknowledge Chris as his son, going to the extreme of only having baby pictures of Peter. [[spoiler: That is, until Chris dies.]] !!Chris's mother * ParentalAbandonment !!Peter Miles * InTheBlood !!Ronnie Fazer -->Played by: Mark Monero * DaddysGirl !!Jal's Mother -->Played by Josette Simon * ParentalAbandonment !!Ace and Lyton Fazer -->Played by Troy Glasgow and Adrian Fergus Fuller * AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Jal. * JiveTurkey * ThoseTwoGuys !!Istiak Kharral -->Played by Inder Manocha * GoodParents * HappilyMarried: Lets his wife have her way in everything because of his love for her. * ReasonableAuthorityFigure: One of the few on the show. !!Bibi Kharral -->Played by Nina Wadia * DotingParent * HappilyMarried * HiddenDepths: Her masturbation joke in the generation finale suggests she's maybe a bit looser than she initially seems. !!Uncle Muneer -->Played by Nish Nathwani * [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParent Amazingly Embarrassing Uncle]] * DumbassDJ !!Walter Oliver -->Played by: Bill Bailey * GoodParents * TallPoppySyndrome !!Jackie Oliver * GoodParents !Supporting Cast !!Posh Kenneth -->Played by: Daniel Kaluuya * HeyItsThatGuy: Daniel Kaluuya would later play Tealeaf in Psychoville * JiveTurkey: The joke being that his posh accent means he doesn't sound nearly as "ghetto" as he would like to. * TokenMinorityCouple: His moment with Jal in the Series 1 finale. * YouLookFamiliar: Daniel Kaluuya turned up playing a DJ in a series 3 episode. !!Abigail Stock -->Played by: Georgina Moffet * BlondesAreEvil * RichBitch * RomanticFalseLead !!Josh Stock -->Played by: Ben Lloyd-Hughes * BewareTheNiceOnes: Though it's more that he turns out to ''not be so nice'' once Tony screws him over. * [[spoiler: RomanticFalseLead]]: For Michelle. * TookALevelInJerkass: In Effy's episode. !!Pandora Moon -->Played by: Lisa Backwell * CorruptTheCutie * TheDitz * NewTransferStudent * VictoriasSecretCompartment: Uses it store her mobile and wallet, and the weed she and Effy buy from Cassie. !!Angie -->Played by: Siwan Morris * HotForStudent * [[spoiler: RomanticFalseLead]] !!Doug -->Played by: Giles Thomas * CoolTeacher: At least, he tries: --> "Oggie oggie oggie!" ---> [[FlatWhat *blank stare*]] !!Josie -->Played by: Josie Long * MisplacedKindergartenTeacher !!Madison "Mad" Twatter -->Played by: Stephen Walters * BadassMustache * BerserkButton: DON'T stare. * GoodHairEvilHair: His handlebar mustache puts him in the latter category. * UnfortunateNames: Though he seems to enjoy it. !!Alan the Taxi Driver -->Played by: Alan George * CoolOldGuy * TheMentor: To Cassie. [[/folder]] ---- [[folder: Second Generation]] !The Kids !!Elizabeth "Effy" Stonem -->Played by: Kaya Scodelario * BeneathTheMask: It finally comes off in Season 4, but we get some peeks even before that - for example, with her "Unseen Skins" in Season 1, and with her speech to Katie in Pandora's Season 3 episode. * BrokenBird: Gave off this impression from her earliest appearances, until SanitySlippage ensued. * TheChessmaster * FallenPrincess * FilleFatale: All three of the Musketeers fall for her. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Pandora. * IceQueen * LoveMakesYouCrazy: Effy can't seem to handle being in a relationship with someone she genuinely loves, [[spoiler: which is why she loses it when she and Freddie get together in Season 4]]. * TheOphelia * RoomFullOfCrazy: In Freddie's Season 4 episode, [[spoiler:Effy makes one in her mum's bedroom.]] * SanitySlippage: In Season 4. * ShipperOnDeck: For Naomi/Emily. * StepfordSmiler: Types A and C. Effy's complete personality shifts with each season turned out to just be different masks, [[spoiler: until it comes off in Season 4]]. Invoked by Anthea in Season 3, who says to JJ that nothing terrifies Effy more than "showing her cards." * UnkemptBeauty !!Pandora "Panda" Moon -->Played by: Lisa Backwell * AscendedExtra: Was a minor character in Series 2; now a part of the main cast. * CloudCuckoolander: Particularly at the beginning of Series 3. * CorruptTheCutie: Panda now wants to be corrupted even more. * GeniusDitz * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Effy. * [[spoiler: IvyLeagueForEveryone]] * NoSocialSkills: JJ looks positively smooth in comparison. * SlumberPartyPloy: How she keeps her mom from knowing about all the drugs and sex she partakes in. * YourCheatingHeart: Continues having sex with Cook even ''after'' Thomas comes back to Britain and they consequently get back together. !!Thomas Tomone -->Played by: Merveille Lukeba * YouFailGeographyForever: Is Thomas from the Republic of the Congo or the Democratic Republic of the Congo? Pandora's description of it being between Gabon and Cameroon suggests the former (the D.R.C. doesn't border either of those countries), dialogue suggests the latter. Do the writers not realize they are different countries? * BilingualBonus: When he speaks French. Most of his French dialogue is subtitled, of course, but some stand-alone words are not. * BlackAndNerdy: A mild case. He claims to be great at math and to have scored at the top of his class in his village high school. * ButNotTooForeign: Averted. He's from Africa. * EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench * ForeignCussWord: "Merde" (meaning "shit") is a favorite of his. * [[spoiler: IvyLeagueForEveryone]]: A particularly egregious example. * MagicalNegro: Sometimes comes across as this; Katie even lampshades it. * NaiveNewcomer: Played straight until they get to Pandora's aunt's house. Then it's quickly subverted. * OddFriendship: With J.J. * TokenMinority * TookALevelInJerkass: His Season 4 episode, to some. * YourCheatingHeart: He cheats on Pandora in Season 4. !!Jonah "JJ" Jeremiah Jones -->Played by: Ollie Barbieri * AbsentMindedProfessor: Cook even calls him a "nutty professor." * AddedAlliterativeAppeal * {{Adorkable}}: His interest in magic tricks and model planes, his trivia skills, and the repeated ''Franchise/StarTrek'' references in his Season 4 ep. * AspergerSyndrome: Provided the former page quote. He also stands out as one of the few portrayals in the media that is both realistic ''and'' sympathetic. * BewareTheNiceOnes * ButtMonkey: In-universe, at least. * BowtiesAreCool * DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: Has a lot of these moments, from telling Effy that Cook was sleeping with someone else to [[spoiler:outing Emily to her sister]]. * GoodWithNumbers * IncompatibleOrientation: [[spoiler: He and Emily have sex despite the fact that Emily is gay. He actually thought the two of them getting together was possible when Emily chose him as her Love Ball date - but that was only because of Emily's mother and sister's homophobia, and once Naomi showed up Emily happily went with her.]] * AManIsNotAVirgin: Subverted [[spoiler: until the end of his Season 3 episode]]. Played with in Season 4 when Thomas points out that [[spoiler: a pity-screw from a lesbian doesn't really mean much, and he needs to find a girl who is genuinely interested to have sex with him]]. * MotorMouth: When he gets "locked-on." * OddFriendship: With Emily and with Thomas. His friendship with Thomas in particular came out of ''nowhere.'' * PowerTrio: Usually the Ego, occasionally the Super-ego. * SerenadeYourLover: What he does [[spoiler:to get Lara back after she dumps him because he beat up her baby daddy]], with his adorable rendition of "True" by Spandau Ballet. * TVGenius: Subverted - he has all the traits to fit the trope, but he's never made out to be any smarter than anyone else (except in terms of remembering lots of random facts and, apparently, excellence in maths). His social isolation is his defining factor. !!James Cook -->Played by: Jack O'Connell * {{Antihero}}: Initially appeared as a Type V, but was eventually revealed to be more of a Type I. * BerserkButton: Don't mention his mum. * BigEater * TheFriendNobodyLikes: In S3. * HairTriggerTemper * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Freddie. * HypocrisyNod: Everybody pisses on you? What goes around comes around. * IncompatibleOrientation: [[spoiler: With Naomi. It's the reason that they don't go very far when they try to have sex.]] * {{Jerkass}}: And a particularly obnoxious one at that, though one scene would imply it's really a JerkassFacade. * LargeHam: It's part of his character. * LastNameBasis * OddFriendship: With Naomi, by Season 4. * PowerTrio: The Id. !!Frederick "Freddie" Mclair -->Played by: Luke Pasqualino * BigBrotherInstinct: He's not a fan of Karen's decision to exploit their mother's memory to help her win Search for a Sexxbomb, but he cheers for her at her final performance, [[spoiler: comforts her when she loses]] and [[spoiler: when Cook laughs about how he and J.J. voted against her for stealing their shed, Freddie nearly punches his lights out.]] * MrFanservice: The show likes to remind us of Freddie's nice chest. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Cook. * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * MissingMom: Well, dead mom. * PowerTrio: Usually the Super-ego (lampshaded by [[TheId Cook]] when he calls him a "fun-sponge"), occasionally the Ego. * ShirtlessScene: Seems to enjoy leaving his shirt at home even in the ''non''-sex scenes. * TheStoner * TheUnfavourite: Karen comprehensively dumps on him - with their father's support and praise, most notably when Freddie loses his beloved shed. !!Katherine "Katie" Fitch -->Played by: Megan Prescott * AlphaBitch: At least, she aspires to be one. Particularly in Season 3. * BrokeEpisode: Her Season 4 episode. * EverybodySmokes: Averted, notably she's the only teenage character to outright state that they don't smoke. [[spoiler: Though she finally caves in her Season 4 episode.]] * {{Foil}}: The show sets her up as Effy's foil, though they're eventually revealed to be NotSoDifferent. She is more the foil to her sister. * ItsACostumePartyISwear: The maid of honor at the wedding Katie and her mom are planning pulls a version of this on Katie: she switches the theme for the hen night, doesn't tell Katie, and doesn't make her a corresponding costume. * ManipulativeBastard: Particularly during her and Emily's season 3 episode. * NoPeriodsPeriod: [[spoiler: Katie is diagnosed with premature menopause in her season 4 episode.]] * PolarOppositeTwins * RedOniBlueOni: The red oni to Emily's blue oni, especially in Series 3. Less so in Season 4, not because Katie stops being fierce, but because Emily stops being a shy doormat. * RomanticFalseLead: [[spoiler: To both Freddie and Thomas.]] * {{Tsundere}} * {{Twincest}}: The writers basically went to town with Katie/Emily subtext in their S3 episode. !!Emily Fitch -->Played by: Kathryn Prescott * BreakTheCutie: Series Four. * EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: Particularly in Series 3. * {{Foil}}: To her sister as explained above, as well as to Naomi. Emily's close-knit family, and the fact that she's a twin, contrasts with Naomi's more independent life, as an only child with a mom who is not always around. This explains why Emily dives head-first into their relationship, going serious all at once, while Naomi is scared off by that and wants to ease into it slowly. * {{Gayngst}} * LipstickLesbian * OddFriendship: With J.J. * PolarOppositeTwins * RedOniBlueOni: The blue oni to Katie's red oni, at least through most of Series 3. Less so after she starts to crawl out from Katie's shadow at the end of Season 3, though she's still more low-key and sensitive than her sister. * SingleTargetSexuality: Naomi. * SchoolgirlLesbians !!Naomi Campbell -->Played by: Lily Loveless * AllTakeAndNoGive: [[spoiler: Arguably Naomi's fling with Sophia. At least from Sophia's point of view.]] * ArmoredClosetGay: At first. * DisappearedDad * FirstKiss: [[spoiler:That middle school kiss with Emily. (All the boys she'd dated before then were too cowardly to go for it. And she didn't fancy any of them anyway.)]] * {{Gayngst}} * HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: In Season 3. Naomi is very quick to remind Emily how very straight she is between lip-locking sessions. * InformedAbility: Naomi is supposedly very political and hates injustice, but apart from her character video diary, unsuccessful run for student president, and her poster of Nelson Mandela on her bedroom wall, this is never really shown. ** The run for president was unsuccessful precisely ''because'' she hates injustice (she refused to let Harriet and Doug get away with trying to rig the election in her favour). *** Also, it's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] earlier in the episode when she points out that Emily shouldn't know that about her, having said all of about three sentences to her, none of them political. * LoveAtFirstSight: "I think I was twelve." * MessyHair: Becomes her default hairstyle during season 4. * NamesTheSame * OddFriendship: With Cook, by Season 4. Let's not forget she got him in trouble in the generation opener when he tried to show her his dick tattoos. ** And oddly enough, Effy as well, though the moments are fleeting. Evidenced in JJ's Season 3 episode, when they discuss Naomi's sexuality and Effy's love for Freddie, and Effy's Season 4 episode, when Naomi goes to visit Effy [[spoiler:in the psychiatric hospital following her suicide attempt]] to discuss Naomi's [[spoiler:failing]] relationship with Emily. *** The friendship with Effy actually isn't that odd when you consider that Effy and Freddie's relationship is kind of an amplified version of Naomi and Emily's: Effy and Naomi both have issues (albeit for different reasons) with acknowledging their feelings and committing to their respective significant others, both of whom are much freer with their feelings and welcome the emotional closeness and commitment that love brings, and have trouble understanding why their girlfriends don't. * SingleTargetSexuality: Emily. * SchoolgirlLesbians * ShipperOnDeck: For Freddie/Effy. * StepfordSnarker: "I learned how to become a sarcastic bitch just to make it feel normal." * {{Tsundere}}: See above. * YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler: Naomi cheats on Emily in Season 4 with [[StalkerWithACrush Sophia]], a storyline that was possibly [[{{Foreshadowing}} hinted at]] with the song "It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry" that plays at the end of 309.]] !Family !!Anthea Stonem -->Played by: Morwenna Banks * ActorAllusion: She cheats on Jim with his line manager, played by David Baddiel, Banks' real life partner. * YourCheatingHeart: She's been cheating on her husband with his line manager. !!Jim Stonem -->Played by: Harry Enfield * PutOnABus: Partway through Season 3 (when he finds out about Anthea's cheating). !!Angela Moon -->Played by: Sally Phillips * AdultsAreUseless: Is easily dispatched by the MDMA brownies and Pandora's friends are able to have the party they wanted. * AmazinglyEmbarrassingParent: Played with. Angela is one, but Pandora doesn't see her this way - and is more worried about how her hard-partying friends are going to embarrass her in front of her ''mom.'' * HiddenDepths: Her sex tape with the cranky neighbor that Effy and Cook find when they fall into the house next door. * MyBelovedSmother: Angela doesn't want Pandora anywhere near boys. Oddly enough, Panda doesn't see her this way, even though she breaks all her rules. * [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Parent]]: Arguably. With the exception of her ideas about boyfriends, her rules for Pandora are actually pretty reasonable. * UnsuspectinglySoused: After Katie puts MDMA in the brownies when Angela's back is turned. !!Aunt Elizabeth -->Played by: Maureen Lipman * UnsuspectinglySoused: Doesn't realize tea plants are marijuana. (Or maybe she does, given the way she's happily smoking them at the end...) !!Celia Jones -->Played by: Juliet Cowan * DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: When she accidentally calls Lara a "slut" in JJ's Season 4 episode. !!Edward Jones -->Played by: Douglas Hodge * HandsOffParenting: He spends most of the time hiding behind a newspaper. !!Ruth Cook -->Played by: Tanya Franks * HandsOffParenting: Hasn't seen her son since she kicked him out for selling her wedding rings for dope - until he's under house arrest in Season 4. * MrsRobinson: Has sex with [[spoiler: Freddie]]. * ReallyGetsAround !!James Cook, Sr -->Played by: Matt King * DisappearedDad * {{Jerkass}} * YoureNotMyFather !!Leo Mclair -->Played by: Simon Day * ParentalFavoritism: Toward Karen, it seems. !!Karen Mclair -->Played by: Klariza Clayton * BrattyTeenageDaughter * IdolSinger: Her dream is to be the English equivalent of this. !!Jenna Fitch -->Played by: Ronnie Ancona * BreakTheHaughty: In Katie's Season 4 episode when [[spoiler: the Fitches lose their house]]. * SmugSnake !!Rob Fitch -->Played by: John Bishop * BumblingDad * OverprotectiveDad: "If they're not still virgins tomorrow, I'll hunt you down like dogs." * YourCheatingHeart: Cheated on Jenna once with her sister; he explains it to Emily to help her deal [[spoiler: with Naomi's cheating]]. * StepfordSmiler: Series 4. [[spoiler: Manages to seem optimistic about how his fitness machine will "take off" even as he's hiding foreclosure notices from his wife and kids.]] !!James Fitch -->Played by: Redd Smith * AnnoyingYoungerSibling: From Katie and Emily's perspectives. * KidAnova: Fancies himself as one. * MouthyKid !!Gina Campbell --> Played by: Olivia Colman * HandsOffParenting: Also could be lumped in with MissingMom. Gina apparently left Naomi on her own for a year to do ... well, something. (She'd stated that she wanted to "fuck on every beach in India" before she ended up pregnant; that's the most likely explanation.) Strange because for the most part of Season 3, she was a [[GoodParents good parent]]. * NewAgeRetroHippie !Supporting Cast !!Johnny White -->Played by: Mackenzie Crook * {{Expy}}: Plenty of people saw his character as a clone of Mad Twatter. * HeyItsThatGuy: He's [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Ragetti]]. !!Lara Lloyd -->Played by: Georgia Henshaw * ManicPixieDreamGirl: A mild case, but she does basically exist just to be [[spoiler: JJ's girlfriend]]. * TeenPregnancy !!Sophia Moore -->Played by: Amberley Gridley * DrivenToSuicide: Way to start a season! * MilitaryBrat: Her dad died fighting in battle and she's also part of the [[MilitaryAcademy Army Cadet Force]]. * PosthumousCharacter * RoomFullOfCrazy: Both her actual room and (especially) her cadet locker. * StalkerWithACrush: Taken to the extreme.

[[spoiler: Gets dumped for it.]] * BiggusDickus: What Katie claims him to be. !!Andrea Babajide -->Played by: Adelayo Adedayo * BettyAndVeronica: The show plays with this trope. The pressure Thomas is feeling from his parents and church to "stick with his culture" makes him see Andrea as the Betty to Pandora's Veronica (yes, we ''are'' talking about ''Panda'' here). By the end of the episode he realizes it's more reversed. * PreachersKid: Mostly Type 1, though her dalliance with Thomas could slide her toward Type 3. * TedBaxter: While she's not ''entirely'' without musical talents, she ''does'' have an inflated sense of her abilities, as her speech about Lady Gaga, Beyonce, etc. indicates. !!Kieran Macfoeinaiugh -->Played by: Ardal O'Hanlon * TheAllegedCar: -->'''Kieran:''' Would you believe it only cost me £2.50?

On top of that, Cassie is a genius at reading people (almost telepathic in her accuracy) as well as reading [[GeniusBookClub heavy books]]. * DrivenToSuicide / SpurnedIntoSuicide. ** InterruptedSuicide: Thanks to Jal. * DullSurprise: Occasionally, such as when she catches [[spoiler: Jal and Chris]] having sex. * [[spoiler: TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest]]: While she's not in a relationship with him, the death of [[spoiler: Chris]] definitely affects her this way. * FlowerInHerHair: [[spoiler: When she attempts suicide.]] * ForgetsToEat: As part of her anorexia, Cassie refuses to eat. * GeniusBookClub * GenkiGirl: Appears that way at first. * HesDeadJim: Has this reaction [[spoiler: when Chris dies]]. * IJustWantToBeBeautiful * LoveHurts: With Sid. * ManicPixieDreamGirl: Of the "deconstructed" variety. She isn't just quirky, she has ''multiple'' legitimate psychological problems which are depicted with all the seriousness they require. Also, said problems are just as, if not more, integral to her storyline as her relationship with Sid. * TheMessiah: Appears that way at times during Season 1, especially in her "Unseen Skins" episode. She definitely isn't one in Season 2, however. * [[spoiler: MistakenForCheating]] * MotorMouth * ObfuscatingInsanity: Despite having real mental health issues, she does this at times, sometimes combined with ObfuscatingStupidity. * ParentalSubstitute: For her brother. * PlatonicLifePartners: With Chris. * TheOphelia: Played with throughout the two series. It can whiplash between funny ("I'm thinking of leaving school, growing a beard, and joining the circus") to just plain disturbing (Effy's Season 2 episode.) * QuirkyCurls * [[spoiler: TheRunaway]]: [[spoiler: When she returns from Scotland.]] * SlapSlapKiss: With Sid in Season 2. * TheSocialExpert: Takes it to an almost telepathic level, especially in Season 2. * StickyFingers * StepfordSmiler * StrangeGirl * SuperOCD: A mild example. * ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: In her Season 1 episode, she keeps getting texts telling her to '''EAT!''' on her phone, and seeing the word spelled out elsewhere. Nobody is texting her. They are all just hallucinations. * [[spoiler: TookALevelInJerkass]]: In season 2 [[spoiler: when she becomes a JerkassWoobie for a time.]] * VerbalTic / CatchPhrase: "Oh. Wow. Lovely." * WomanInWhite * WomanScorned: Throughout Season 2. !!Chris Miles -->Played by: Joe Dempsie * {{Antihero}}: Type I. * [[spoiler: BloodFromTheMouth]] * CantGetAwayWithNuthin * CatchPhrase: "Fuck it". * [[spoiler: DiedInYourArmsTonight]] * FunTShirt * [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile]] * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * LifeOfTheParty: Well, they all are, but Chris more than anyone. * MaleFrontalNudity * TheMessiah: He loves everyone and everything [[spoiler: as Jal lampshades in her speech at his funeral.]] * NewJobEpisode: His season 2 episode. * NiceGuy * [[spoiler: ObiWanMoment]] * OppositesAttract: With Jal. [[spoiler: Admittedly, though, it was only after each of them brought out a little of each other - Chris getting Jal to show her wilder side, and Jal getting Chris to make responsible decisions.]] * ParentalAbandonment * PlatonicLifePartners: With Cassie. * SecondLove: [[spoiler: When he chooses Jal over Angie.]] * TheStoner: Perhaps also the EruditeStoner. * TeacherStudentRomance: With Angie. * [[spoiler: TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]] * TraumaCongaLine: His backstory. * TheUnfavorite: How his parents treat him. His dad even goes so far as to only have photos of Peter. * UptightLovesWild: GenderFlipped with Jal. * [[spoiler: [[WrongGuyFirst Wrong Girl First]]]] !!Jalander "Jal" Fazer -->Played by: Larissa Wilson * BlackAndNerdy: -->'''Chris''': You don't have sex, do you? You have clarinet lessons. * [[spoiler: BrokenBird]]: In Series 2. * CloserToEarth * DeadpanSnarker * ElegantClassicalMusician * [[spoiler: TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest]] * [[spoiler: GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion]]: Averted [[spoiler: when Jal gets an abortion in Series 2, so she can continue on with her music studies at Uni]]. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Michelle. * [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Tends to play the voice of reason among the characters. * OppositesAttract: With Chris. * TheSmartGuy: She tends to play this role, even though Tony and Cassie are arguably smarter. * TeamMom * [[spoiler: TeenPregnancy]] * TokenMinority * UptightLovesWild: GenderFlipped with Chris. * YouAreACreditToYourRace: Gets a speech like this from the school administration when she's being interviewed for being a BBC Young Musician Of The Year finalist. They go on and on about how Jal is from a "disadvantaged background" when, actually, her father is a famous musician and she's probably the most well-off of the group. !!Maxxie Oliver -->Played by: Mitch Hewer * AllGaysLoveTheater: Dancing is more his thing, but he does love the theater. * BillyElliotPlot * CampGay: A mild example, but he loves dancing and theater. * ClubKid: Although he's one of the most balanced characters of the show and is one of the few characters who isn't seen using drugs. following: * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Anwar, although obviously minus the "heterosexual" as far as Maxxie goes. * MrFanservice: Ironically enough. * NiceGuy * OnlySaneMan: More or less. Still has his issues, but handles them a lot better than most of his friends. * PerformanceArtist * ShirtlessScene: With nudity. * ThoseTwoGuys: With Anwar, particularly in the first ''Series/SkinsCharacters'': The British TV series. * WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Well, fairly light blonde. !!Anwar Kharral -->Played by: Dev Patel * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Maxxie. * HeyItsThatGuy: Dev Patel got his big break in ''SlumdogMillionaire'' not long after ending his tenure on ''Skins''. * PluckyComicRelief: Especially true in Season 2, where Anwar's storyline seemed to exist to provide a bit of a fun MoodWhiplash in the midst of the DarkerAndEdgier arcs surrounding the other characters. * StrawHypocrite: Anwar is perfectly fine breaking Islam's rules regarding drugs, drinking and premarital sex, but suddenly clings to his religion as an excuse for his homophobia. Maxxie calls him out on it in their episode. * ThoseTwoGuys: With Maxxie, particularly in the first series. * TwoferTokenMinority !!Elizabeth "Effy" Stonem -->Played by: Kaya Scodelario * BigBrotherWorship * BrotherSisterIncest: YMMV, but Tony and Effy give off...vibes...at times. * BitchInSheepsClothing: Mostly to her parents. * TheChessmaster * EmotionlessGirl * GeniusBookClub * {{Kuudere}} * OddFriendship: With Pandora. * ParentalFavoritism: Her mother definitely prefers her over Tony. * SilentBob: In Season 1. * StepfordSmiler: Gets hinted at in her Season 2 episode, when Tony says her reserve and stoicness don't fool him; however, it's not really fully explored until Generation 2. * TheStoic !!Sketch (Lucy) -->Played by: Aimee-Ffion Edwards * AbhorrentAdmirer: Creepy and completely ignores... * IncompatibleOrientation * StalkerWithACrush: Towards Maxxie. * {{Yandere}}: She's not violent like this trope usually implies, but she's definitely unstable and doesn't really care who she has to hurt to get to Maxxie. !Family !!Anthea Stonem -->Played by: Morwenna Banks * AdultsAreUseless: Useless. Ignores Tony and Effy. * ParentalFavoritism: In Effy's favor. !!Jim Stonem -->Played by: Harry Enfield * BerserkButton: Calling thighs sexy. * BumblingDad * CannotTellAJoke !!Anna Richardson -->Played by: Arabella Weir * HotMom !!Scarlett -->Played by: Sia Berkeley * DaddysGirl * FieryRedhead * JerkWithAHeartOfGold * LifeOfTheParty !!Mark Jenkins -->Played by: Peter Capaldi * CallingTheOldManOut: Both the receiver and giver. * ClusterFBomb: Often speaks in these. He's [[TheThickOfIt Malcolm Tucker]], what do you expect? * JerkAss: he gets better though * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * [[spoiler: OneLastSmoke]] * [[spoiler: PeacefulInDeath]] * PunctuatedForEmphasis: Lampshaded. --> Sid: Why are you talking in very short sentences? --> Mark: Emphasis! Drama! Fuck off! * TheUnFavourite !!Elizabeth Jenkins -->Played by: Josie Lawrence * ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In contrast to her husband. !!Marcus and Margeritte Ainsworth -->Played by: Neil Morrissey and Naomi Allisstone * ChuckCunninghamSyndrome * HandsOffParenting * ParentalObliviousness * WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's never explained what happened to them, although we assume they are still in Elgin. !!Graham Miles * DramaticIrony: [[spoiler: Graham's decision to un-invite Chris's friends to his funeral, because they were the ones who "screwed him up." ''Film/SkinsCharacters'': The audience, however, knows the opposite is true: his friends were the ones who cared about and looked after Chris after his parents both abandoned him. If not for his friends, he probably would have died a lot sooner.]] Creator/ChrisEyre film. * ParentalAbandonment * IHaveNoSon: Not quite, but he doesn't acknowledge Chris as his son, going ''Webcomic/SkinsCharacters'': The horror webcomic Please change any link to point to the extreme of only having baby pictures of Peter. [[spoiler: That is, until Chris dies.]] !!Chris's mother * ParentalAbandonment !!Peter Miles * InTheBlood !!Ronnie Fazer -->Played by: Mark Monero * DaddysGirl !!Jal's Mother -->Played by Josette Simon * ParentalAbandonment !!Ace and Lyton Fazer -->Played by Troy Glasgow and Adrian Fergus Fuller * AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Jal. * JiveTurkey * ThoseTwoGuys !!Istiak Kharral -->Played by Inder Manocha * GoodParents * HappilyMarried: Lets his wife have her way in everything because of his love for her. * ReasonableAuthorityFigure: One of the few on the show. !!Bibi Kharral -->Played by Nina Wadia * DotingParent * HappilyMarried * HiddenDepths: Her masturbation joke in the generation finale suggests she's maybe a bit looser than she initially seems. !!Uncle Muneer -->Played by Nish Nathwani * [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParent Amazingly Embarrassing Uncle]] * DumbassDJ !!Walter Oliver -->Played by: Bill Bailey * GoodParents * TallPoppySyndrome !!Jackie Oliver * GoodParents !Supporting Cast !!Posh Kenneth -->Played by: Daniel Kaluuya * HeyItsThatGuy: Daniel Kaluuya would later play Tealeaf in Psychoville * JiveTurkey: The joke being that his posh accent means he doesn't sound nearly as "ghetto" as he would like to. * TokenMinorityCouple: His moment with Jal in the Series 1 finale. * YouLookFamiliar: Daniel Kaluuya turned up playing a DJ in a series 3 episode. !!Abigail Stock -->Played by: Georgina Moffet * BlondesAreEvil * RichBitch * RomanticFalseLead !!Josh Stock -->Played by: Ben Lloyd-Hughes * BewareTheNiceOnes: Though it's more that he turns out to ''not be so nice'' once Tony screws him over. * [[spoiler: RomanticFalseLead]]: For Michelle. * TookALevelInJerkass: In Effy's episode. !!Pandora Moon -->Played by: Lisa Backwell * CorruptTheCutie * TheDitz * NewTransferStudent * VictoriasSecretCompartment: Uses it store her mobile and wallet, and the weed she and Effy buy from Cassie. !!Angie -->Played by: Siwan Morris * HotForStudent * [[spoiler: RomanticFalseLead]] !!Doug -->Played by: Giles Thomas * CoolTeacher: At least, he tries: --> "Oggie oggie oggie!" ---> [[FlatWhat *blank stare*]] !!Josie -->Played by: Josie Long * MisplacedKindergartenTeacher !!Madison "Mad" Twatter -->Played by: Stephen Walters * BadassMustache * BerserkButton: DON'T stare. * GoodHairEvilHair: His handlebar mustache puts him in the latter category. * UnfortunateNames: Though he seems to enjoy it. !!Alan the Taxi Driver -->Played by: Alan George * CoolOldGuy * TheMentor: To Cassie. [[/folder]] ---- [[folder: Second Generation]] !The Kids !!Elizabeth "Effy" Stonem -->Played by: Kaya Scodelario * BeneathTheMask: It finally comes off in Season 4, but we get some peeks even before that - for example, with her "Unseen Skins" in Season 1, and with her speech to Katie in Pandora's Season 3 episode. * BrokenBird: Gave off this impression from her earliest appearances, until SanitySlippage ensued. * TheChessmaster * FallenPrincess * FilleFatale: All three of the Musketeers fall for her. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Pandora. * IceQueen * LoveMakesYouCrazy: Effy can't seem to handle being in a relationship with someone she genuinely loves, [[spoiler: which is why she loses it when she and Freddie get together in Season 4]]. * TheOphelia * RoomFullOfCrazy: In Freddie's Season 4 episode, [[spoiler:Effy makes one in her mum's bedroom.]] * SanitySlippage: In Season 4. * ShipperOnDeck: For Naomi/Emily. * StepfordSmiler: Types A and C. Effy's complete personality shifts with each season turned out to just be different masks, [[spoiler: until it comes off in Season 4]]. Invoked by Anthea in Season 3, who says to JJ that nothing terrifies Effy more than "showing her cards." * UnkemptBeauty !!Pandora "Panda" Moon -->Played by: Lisa Backwell * AscendedExtra: Was a minor character in Series 2; now a part of the main cast. * CloudCuckoolander: Particularly at the beginning of Series 3. * CorruptTheCutie: Panda now wants to be corrupted even more. * GeniusDitz * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Effy. * [[spoiler: IvyLeagueForEveryone]] * NoSocialSkills: JJ looks positively smooth in comparison. * SlumberPartyPloy: How she keeps her mom from knowing about all the drugs and sex she partakes in. * YourCheatingHeart: Continues having sex with Cook even ''after'' Thomas comes back to Britain and they consequently get back together. !!Thomas Tomone -->Played by: Merveille Lukeba * YouFailGeographyForever: Is Thomas from the Republic of the Congo or the Democratic Republic of the Congo? Pandora's description of it being between Gabon and Cameroon suggests the former (the D.R.C. doesn't border either of those countries), dialogue suggests the latter. Do the writers not realize they are different countries? * BilingualBonus: When he speaks French. Most of his French dialogue is subtitled, of course, but some stand-alone words are not. * BlackAndNerdy: A mild case. He claims to be great at math and to have scored at the top of his class in his village high school. * ButNotTooForeign: Averted. He's from Africa. * EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench * ForeignCussWord: "Merde" (meaning "shit") is a favorite of his. * [[spoiler: IvyLeagueForEveryone]]: A particularly egregious example. * MagicalNegro: Sometimes comes across as this; Katie even lampshades it. * NaiveNewcomer: Played straight until they get to Pandora's aunt's house. Then it's quickly subverted. * OddFriendship: With J.J. * TokenMinority * TookALevelInJerkass: His Season 4 episode, to some. * YourCheatingHeart: He cheats on Pandora in Season 4. !!Jonah "JJ" Jeremiah Jones -->Played by: Ollie Barbieri * AbsentMindedProfessor: Cook even calls him a "nutty professor." * AddedAlliterativeAppeal * {{Adorkable}}: His interest in magic tricks and model planes, his trivia skills, and the repeated ''Franchise/StarTrek'' references in his Season 4 ep. * AspergerSyndrome: Provided the former page quote. He also stands out as one of the few portrayals in the media that is both realistic ''and'' sympathetic. * BewareTheNiceOnes * ButtMonkey: In-universe, at least. * BowtiesAreCool * DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: Has a lot of these moments, from telling Effy that Cook was sleeping with someone else to [[spoiler:outing Emily to her sister]]. * GoodWithNumbers * IncompatibleOrientation: [[spoiler: He and Emily have sex despite the fact that Emily is gay. He actually thought the two of them getting together was possible when Emily chose him as her Love Ball date - but that was only because of Emily's mother and sister's homophobia, and once Naomi showed up Emily happily went with her.]] * AManIsNotAVirgin: Subverted [[spoiler: until the end of his Season 3 episode]]. Played with in Season 4 when Thomas points out that [[spoiler: a pity-screw from a lesbian doesn't really mean much, and he needs to find a girl who is genuinely interested to have sex with him]]. * MotorMouth: When he gets "locked-on." * OddFriendship: With Emily and with Thomas. His friendship with Thomas in particular came out of ''nowhere.'' * PowerTrio: Usually the Ego, occasionally the Super-ego. * SerenadeYourLover: What he does [[spoiler:to get Lara back after she dumps him because he beat up her baby daddy]], with his adorable rendition of "True" by Spandau Ballet. * TVGenius: Subverted - he has all the traits to fit the trope, but he's never made out to be any smarter than anyone else (except in terms of remembering lots of random facts and, apparently, excellence in maths). His social isolation is his defining factor. !!James Cook -->Played by: Jack O'Connell * {{Antihero}}: Initially appeared as a Type V, but was eventually revealed to be more of a Type I. * BerserkButton: Don't mention his mum. * BigEater * TheFriendNobodyLikes: In S3. * HairTriggerTemper * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Freddie. * HypocrisyNod: Everybody pisses on you? What goes around comes around. * IncompatibleOrientation: [[spoiler: With Naomi. It's the reason that they don't go very far when they try to have sex.]] * {{Jerkass}}: And a particularly obnoxious one at that, though one scene would imply it's really a JerkassFacade. * LargeHam: It's part of his character. * LastNameBasis * OddFriendship: With Naomi, by Season 4. * PowerTrio: The Id. !!Frederick "Freddie" Mclair -->Played by: Luke Pasqualino * BigBrotherInstinct: He's not a fan of Karen's decision to exploit their mother's memory to help her win Search for a Sexxbomb, but he cheers for her at her final performance, [[spoiler: comforts her when she loses]] and [[spoiler: when Cook laughs about how he and J.J. voted against her for stealing their shed, Freddie nearly punches his lights out.]] * MrFanservice: The show likes to remind us of Freddie's nice chest. * HeterosexualLifePartners: With Cook. * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * MissingMom: Well, dead mom. * PowerTrio: Usually the Super-ego (lampshaded by [[TheId Cook]] when he calls him a "fun-sponge"), occasionally the Ego. * ShirtlessScene: Seems to enjoy leaving his shirt at home even in the ''non''-sex scenes. * TheStoner * TheUnfavourite: Karen comprehensively dumps on him - with their father's support and praise, most notably when Freddie loses his beloved shed. !!Katherine "Katie" Fitch -->Played by: Megan Prescott * AlphaBitch: At least, she aspires to be one. Particularly in Season 3. * BrokeEpisode: Her Season 4 episode. * EverybodySmokes: Averted, notably she's the only teenage character to outright state that they don't smoke. [[spoiler: Though she finally caves in her Season 4 episode.]] * {{Foil}}: The show sets her up as Effy's foil, though they're eventually revealed to be NotSoDifferent. She is more the foil to her sister. * ItsACostumePartyISwear: The maid of honor at the wedding Katie and her mom are planning pulls a version of this on Katie: she switches the theme for the hen night, doesn't tell Katie, and doesn't make her a corresponding costume. * ManipulativeBastard: Particularly during her and Emily's season 3 episode. * NoPeriodsPeriod: [[spoiler: Katie is diagnosed with premature menopause in her season 4 episode.]] * PolarOppositeTwins * RedOniBlueOni: The red oni to Emily's blue oni, especially in Series 3. Less so in Season 4, not because Katie stops being fierce, but because Emily stops being a shy doormat. * RomanticFalseLead: [[spoiler: To both Freddie and Thomas.]] * {{Tsundere}} * {{Twincest}}: The writers basically went to town with Katie/Emily subtext in their S3 episode. !!Emily Fitch -->Played by: Kathryn Prescott * BreakTheCutie: Series Four. * EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: Particularly in Series 3. * {{Foil}}: To her sister as explained above, as well as to Naomi. Emily's close-knit family, and the fact that she's a twin, contrasts with Naomi's more independent life, as an only child with a mom who is not always around. This explains why Emily dives head-first into their relationship, going serious all at once, while Naomi is scared off by that and wants to ease into it slowly. * {{Gayngst}} * LipstickLesbian * OddFriendship: With J.J. * PolarOppositeTwins * RedOniBlueOni: The blue oni to Katie's red oni, at least through most of Series 3. Less so after she starts to crawl out from Katie's shadow at the end of Season 3, though she's still more low-key and sensitive than her sister. * SingleTargetSexuality: Naomi. * SchoolgirlLesbians !!Naomi Campbell -->Played by: Lily Loveless * AllTakeAndNoGive: [[spoiler: Arguably Naomi's fling with Sophia. At least from Sophia's point of view.]] * ArmoredClosetGay: At first. * DisappearedDad * FirstKiss: [[spoiler:That middle school kiss with Emily. (All the boys she'd dated before then were too cowardly to go for it. And she didn't fancy any of them anyway.)]] * {{Gayngst}} * HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: In Season 3. Naomi is very quick to remind Emily how very straight she is between lip-locking sessions. * InformedAbility: Naomi is supposedly very political and hates injustice, but apart from her character video diary, unsuccessful run for student president, and her poster of Nelson Mandela on her bedroom wall, this is never really shown. ** The run for president was unsuccessful precisely ''because'' she hates injustice (she refused to let Harriet and Doug get away with trying to rig the election in her favour). *** Also, it's [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] earlier in the episode when she points out that Emily shouldn't know that about her, having said all of about three sentences to her, none of them political. * LoveAtFirstSight: "I think I was twelve." * MessyHair: Becomes her default hairstyle during season 4. * NamesTheSame * OddFriendship: With Cook, by Season 4. Let's not forget she got him in trouble in the generation opener when he tried to show her his dick tattoos. ** And oddly enough, Effy as well, though the moments are fleeting. Evidenced in JJ's Season 3 episode, when they discuss Naomi's sexuality and Effy's love for Freddie, and Effy's Season 4 episode, when Naomi goes to visit Effy [[spoiler:in the psychiatric hospital following her suicide attempt]] to discuss Naomi's [[spoiler:failing]] relationship with Emily. *** The friendship with Effy actually isn't that odd when you consider that Effy and Freddie's relationship is kind of an amplified version of Naomi and Emily's: Effy and Naomi both have issues (albeit for different reasons) with acknowledging their feelings and committing to their respective significant others, both of whom are much freer with their feelings and welcome the emotional closeness and commitment that love brings, and have trouble understanding why their girlfriends don't. * SingleTargetSexuality: Emily. * SchoolgirlLesbians * ShipperOnDeck: For Freddie/Effy. * StepfordSnarker: "I learned how to become a sarcastic bitch just to make it feel normal." * {{Tsundere}}: See above. * YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler: Naomi cheats on Emily in Season 4 with [[StalkerWithACrush Sophia]], a storyline that was possibly [[{{Foreshadowing}} hinted at]] with the song "It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry" that plays at the end of 309.]] !Family !!Anthea Stonem -->Played by: Morwenna Banks * ActorAllusion: She cheats on Jim with his line manager, played by David Baddiel, Banks' real life partner. * YourCheatingHeart: She's been cheating on her husband with his line manager. !!Jim Stonem -->Played by: Harry Enfield * PutOnABus: Partway through Season 3 (when he finds out about Anthea's cheating). !!Angela Moon -->Played by: Sally Phillips * AdultsAreUseless: Is easily dispatched by the MDMA brownies and Pandora's friends are able to have the party they wanted. * AmazinglyEmbarrassingParent: Played with. Angela is one, but Pandora doesn't see her this way - and is more worried about how her hard-partying friends are going to embarrass her in front of her ''mom.'' * HiddenDepths: Her sex tape with the cranky neighbor that Effy and Cook find when they fall into the house next door. * MyBelovedSmother: Angela doesn't want Pandora anywhere near boys. Oddly enough, Panda doesn't see her this way, even though she breaks all her rules. * [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Parent]]: Arguably. With the exception of her ideas about boyfriends, her rules for Pandora are actually pretty reasonable. * UnsuspectinglySoused: After Katie puts MDMA in the brownies when Angela's back is turned. !!Aunt Elizabeth -->Played by: Maureen Lipman * UnsuspectinglySoused: Doesn't realize tea plants are marijuana. (Or maybe she does, given the way she's happily smoking them at the end...) !!Celia Jones -->Played by: Juliet Cowan * DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: When she accidentally calls Lara a "slut" in JJ's Season 4 episode. !!Edward Jones -->Played by: Douglas Hodge * HandsOffParenting: He spends most of the time hiding behind a newspaper. !!Ruth Cook -->Played by: Tanya Franks * HandsOffParenting: Hasn't seen her son since she kicked him out for selling her wedding rings for dope - until he's under house arrest in Season 4. * MrsRobinson: Has sex with [[spoiler: Freddie]]. * ReallyGetsAround !!James Cook, Sr -->Played by: Matt King * DisappearedDad * {{Jerkass}} * YoureNotMyFather !!Leo Mclair -->Played by: Simon Day * ParentalFavoritism: Toward Karen, it seems. !!Karen Mclair -->Played by: Klariza Clayton * BrattyTeenageDaughter * IdolSinger: Her dream is to be the English equivalent of this. !!Jenna Fitch -->Played by: Ronnie Ancona * BreakTheHaughty: In Katie's Season 4 episode when [[spoiler: the Fitches lose their house]]. * SmugSnake !!Rob Fitch -->Played by: John Bishop * BumblingDad * OverprotectiveDad: "If they're not still virgins tomorrow, I'll hunt you down like dogs." * YourCheatingHeart: Cheated on Jenna once with her sister; he explains it to Emily to help her deal [[spoiler: with Naomi's cheating]]. * StepfordSmiler: Series 4. [[spoiler: Manages to seem optimistic about how his fitness machine will "take off" even as he's hiding foreclosure notices from his wife and kids.]] !!James Fitch -->Played by: Redd Smith * AnnoyingYoungerSibling: From Katie and Emily's perspectives. * KidAnova: Fancies himself as one. * MouthyKid !!Gina Campbell --> Played by: Olivia Colman * HandsOffParenting: Also could be lumped in with MissingMom. Gina apparently left Naomi on her own for a year to do ... well, something. (She'd stated that she wanted to "fuck on every beach in India" before she ended up pregnant; that's the most likely explanation.) Strange because for the most part of Season 3, she was a [[GoodParents good parent]]. * NewAgeRetroHippie !Supporting Cast !!Johnny White -->Played by: Mackenzie Crook * {{Expy}}: Plenty of people saw his character as a clone of Mad Twatter. * HeyItsThatGuy: He's [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Ragetti]]. !!Lara Lloyd -->Played by: Georgia Henshaw * ManicPixieDreamGirl: A mild case, but she does basically exist just to be [[spoiler: JJ's girlfriend]]. * TeenPregnancy !!Sophia Moore -->Played by: Amberley Gridley * DrivenToSuicide: Way to start a season! * MilitaryBrat: Her dad died fighting in battle and she's also part of the [[MilitaryAcademy Army Cadet Force]]. * PosthumousCharacter * RoomFullOfCrazy: Both her actual room and (especially) her cadet locker. * StalkerWithACrush: Taken to the extreme. Sophia has a whole locker shrine dedicated to Naomi. Items include covertly taken snapshots of Naomi, Naomi's bracelet, [[{{Squick}} an old toothbrush of Naomi's]], and a Garibaldi wrapper Naomi had thrown out. * TragicDream: Naomi. Art school. !!Matt Moore -->Played by: Richard Southgate * BigBrotherInstinct * MilitaryBrat !!Dr. John Foster -->Played by: Hugo Speer * AxCrazy * IfICantHaveYou * KarmaHoudini: As far as is known about him. * MindRape: Attempts this on Effy. [[spoiler: Almost succeeds.]] * TheShrink: A particularly extreme Type 1. * StalkerWithACrush * {{Yandere}} !!Sam -->Played by: Ben Evans * BerserkButton: Unknowingly presses Katie's in her Season 4 episode. [[spoiler: Gets dumped for it.]] * BiggusDickus: What Katie claims him to be. !!Andrea Babajide -->Played by: Adelayo Adedayo * BettyAndVeronica: The show plays with this trope. The pressure Thomas is feeling from his parents and church to "stick with his culture" makes him see Andrea as the Betty to Pandora's Veronica (yes, we ''are'' talking about ''Panda'' here). By the end of the episode he realizes it's more reversed. * PreachersKid: Mostly Type 1, though her dalliance with Thomas could slide her toward Type 3. * TedBaxter: While she's not ''entirely'' without musical talents, she ''does'' have an inflated sense of her abilities, as her speech about Lady Gaga, Beyonce, etc. indicates. !!Kieran Macfoeinaiugh -->Played by: Ardal O'Hanlon * TheAllegedCar: -->'''Kieran:''' Would you believe it only cost me £2.50? And three tokens from the top of Weetabix packets. -->'''Naomi:''' Yeah, I really would believe that. * ApatheticTeacher: "Hi, I'm Kieran and I hate being a fucking teacher." * HotForStudent: For Naomi, after he misreads the signals. !!Harriet Lawes -->Played by: Victoria Wicks * PutOnABus: After Season 3. !!David Blood -->Played by: Chris Addison * SadistTeacher: Seems to take pleasure in expelling people. * TyrantTakesTheHelm: Sweeps in at the beginning of Season 4 with plans to improve the school - mostly by expelling anyone who steps a toe out of line. !!T. Love -->Played by: Will Young * WaxingLyrical: Most of his advice is derived from the work of MichaelJackson. [[/folder]] ---- [[folder: Third Generation]] !The Kids !!

As of the Season 6 premiere, [[spoiler: Matty and Franky are an OfficialCouple and Franky tells her friends she's "been losing her virginity lots of times."]] * [[ActorAllusion Actress Allusion]]: Franky coming from Oxford is a possible allusion to TheGoldenCompass. ** It goes further than that: She's an orphan from Oxford whose (male) best friend disappeared. * AllOfTheOtherReindeer * [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Lesbian]]: She is referred to as a lesbian by some character early in the season, but [[spoiler: Grace, Mini, and Liv eventually question her about her sexuality, and she's says she's "into people" (which would one would probably call "pansexual").]] * BeautifulAllAlong: In her first episode after her makeover. * BadassLongCoat * {{Bifauxnen}}: She has a very butch/androgynous way of dressing. * [[spoiler:BiTheWay: While she doesn't identify as bisexual she is attracted to people regardless of gender, specifically stating that she's "into people."]] * BrokenBird: Implied specifically by [[spoiler: her FreakOut]] in the finale. * CoolLoser * TheDandy: Has the appearance of one but lacks the obvious vanity and she apparently makes some of her own clothes. * DarkAndTroubledPast * [[spoiler:DistressedDamsel: Combined with LiteralCliffHanger in the Season 5 finale.]] * EatingLunchAlone * [[spoiler:ExpositoryHairstyleChange: In the novel she cuts her hair short like in the series]] * FreakyIsCool * FriendshipMoment: "You got a lighter?" * [[spoiler: GirlinessUpgrade]]: In Season 6. * HatesBeingTouched * [[HasTwoMommies Has Two Daddies]] * HeadphonesEqualIsolation * TheHeart * [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey It's That Girl!]] : Dakota Blue Richards was Lyra in ''TheGoldenCompass''. * HiddenDepths: She's a skilled animator, DJ, photographer and [[ChekhovsSkill tailor]]. ** And as of season 6, fluent in French. * InSeriesNickname: She seems to be called "Headfuck" by the other characters quite a lot... * InternalizedCategorism * IJustWantToBeNormal: Lampshaded almost word-for-word after [[spoiler: her FreakOut and subsequent near-death]] in 5x08. * IJustWantToHaveFriends * {{Kuudere}} * [[MrImagination Ms Imagination]] * NaiveNewcomer * NoSocialSkills: At first due to her being shy. * ParentalAbandonment * ShrinkingViolet * TheRival: How Mini sees her, until they become friends. * [[spoiler:TookALevelInJerkass: Sometime between Season 5 and Season 6 she went up a level.]] * SuppressedMammaries: Many were surprised to see that Dakota Blue Richards has actually got not inconsiderable breasts, when she's not dressed as Franky.

Nick tells Liv in Mini's Season 5 episode that he hasn't been to Mini's home even if they've been going out for over a month, so it's possible that Mini tries to maintain a RichBitch image. * SleepMask * StepfordSmiler * [[spoiler: TeenPregnancy]]: [[spoiler: And Alo is more than likely the father.]] * [[spoiler:TellMeAboutMyFather: In the Novel]] * TomboyAndGirlyGirl: She is the girly girl to Franky's Tomboy. * [[TragicHero Tragic Heroine]]: At least in her season 5 episode. * {{Tsundere}}: [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation Although some see her as more of a]] {{Yandere}}. * TedBaxter * WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: To many, it seems to be a mix of an English accent, the actress's natural Scottish Accent and possibly something else (apparently the actress lived in France a lot, although it could be mistaken for Irish). * WhenSheSmiles: You gotta admit, whenever she smiles is an instantly adorable moment. !!Olivia "Liv" Malone -->Played by: Laya Lewis * CloserToEarth: To begin with, anyway. * FashionableAsymmetry * FiveFingerDiscount * HardDrinkingPartyGirl * InformedAbility: All the stuff on her E4 profile picture about her being obsessed with dancing. * ParentalAbandonment: Has a DisappearedDad and a distant mother who goes away on New Age retreats and leaves her in charge. * ReallyGetsAround * RupturedAppendix: Liv spends her S6 episode thinking she has a lump on her uterus and is scared to have it medically looked at, [[spoiler: but she later finds out that [[YouImaginedIt it was all in her head, and a psychological manifestation of her grief over Grace's death]]]]. * PowerTrio: The id. * TookALevelInJerkass: In Grace's Season 5 episode. * ToxicFriendInfluence: Noticeably after her Season 5 episode, Her offering the girls cocaine is a prime example. * WithFriendsLikeThese: Mini. !!Grace Violet [[spoiler:Blood]] -->Played by: Jessica Sula * [[{{Ballet}} The Ballerina]] * BetaCouple: With Rich. * [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie: The novel seems to be an exercise in seeing how often Grace can cry.]] ** [[spoiler:It gets to a point where Mini considers her TheEeyore.]] * TheCutie * DaddysGirl * DarkSecret: [[spoiler: She's actually Professor David Blood's daughter.]] * TheDitz: Appears that way in Franky's episode, with several ShuttingUpNow moments. * DoubleAgent: Something of this during the first few episodes, being a member of both Mini's gang (with Liv and Nick) and Franky's (with Alo and Rich).

The Bloods and Cripples together at last. You get me?" -->Grace: "Whatís he talking about?" -->Rich: "Nickís suggesting that were a bunch of cripples and that he and Mini, are similar to a black violent LA street gang... obviously" * BookDumb * BrokenAce * CallingTheOldManOut * MrFanservice * HowTheMightyHaveFallen * InUniverseCatharsis: Smashing his father's kitchen with a golf club. * IWantToBeARealMan: [[WellDoneSonGuy Due to the influence of his father.]] * FriendshipMoment: With Franky, their conversation on the swing set, and when he stands up for Franky after a guy threatens her. * JerkJock: Before the onset of CharacterDevelopment. * JerkWithAHeartOfGold * TheMasochismTango: With Mini, they first appear to be BirdsOfAFeather but it becomes painfully obvious that they don't work as a couple. ** [[spoiler: As of his Season 5 episode he and Mini are no longer a couple]]. * MissingMom * YourCheatingHeart !!Matthew "Matty" [[spoiler:Levan]] -->Played by: Sebastian De Souza * [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Bisexual]]: Mainly due to WordOfGod indicating the character the character was originally supposed to be bisexual, that and the character profile that lists ''Film/{{Shortbus}}'' and ''Film/MyOwnPrivateIdaho'' as his favourite movies. * BlackSheep * BirdsOfAFeather: [[spoiler: Arguably with either [[TriangRelations Liv or Franky.]]]] * DullSurprise * FiveFingerDiscount * GeniusBookClub: He can be seen reading Stephen Hawking's ''A Brief History of Time'' in Grace's Season 5 episode. ** Plus his profile on the E4 website. * MasterOfTheMixedMessage * MissingMom * MysteriousPast * OnlyOneName: Until Liv's episode. * PermaStubble * PlayingGertrude: Sebastian de Souza is younger than Sean Teale by a year, but on the show, Matty is older than Nick. * TheQuietOne * RebelliousSpirit * SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The sensitive one in contrast to his [[spoiler:JerkJock brother Nick]]. * SiblingRivalry: [[spoiler:With Nick]]. * TheStoic * ToxicFriendInfluence * TheTramp: Until Nick's Season 5 episode. * TroubledButCute !!Alex Henley -->Played by: Sam Jackson * AllGaysArePromiscuous * TheGamblingAddict * [[MistakenForSubculture Mistaken For Prostitute]] * NiceGuy * SixthRanger: Was announced as a new "main cast" character who would be introduced in Season 6. * StraightGay !Family !!Geoff Cumber and Jeff Woodburn -->Played by: John Sessions and Gareth Farr * GoodParents: At least initially, they appear to be a rare case of caring parents on the show. * HappilyMarried * HomeGuard: Both former members of the Territorial Army. * OneSteveLimit: Averted, but not as quite their names are very similar. !!Kevin Hardbeck -->Played by: Daniel Ryan * FirstNameBasis: Rich always refers to his dad by his first name (barring the end of the episode when Rich calls him "dad" as a PetTheDog moment). * NiceGuy !!Shelley [=McGuinness=] -->Played by: Clare Grogan * [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Parent]] * AllMenArePerverts: Her views on men boils down to this. * HotMom: What she considers herself to be. * ReallyGetsAround: In sharp contrast to her daughter [[spoiler: who is a virgin.]] !!Maude Malone * AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Liv, at times. * BlackAndNerdy * BookWorm * GeniusBookClub: Is shown reading ''InfiniteJest''. !!Bella Malone * CoolBigSis: To Liv, at times. * MamaDidntRaiseNoCriminal !!

Catherine Creevey -->Played by Ingrid Lacey * AllTakeAndNoGive: Her relationship with Alo is pretty much defined by the fact that neither side wishes to compromise, making them both "takers." * ApronMatron * FamilyBusiness: Her main goal is to have Alo work full time on the Crevvey family farm, something that doesn't sit well with Alo. * InSeriesNickname: Mumgabe * MyBelovedSmother * ParentalObliviousness * ToughLove !!David Blood -->Played by: Chris Addison * BeingPersonalIsntProfessional:Why he insists on keeping his relationship with [[spoiler:his daughter Grace]] a secret so it doesn't compromise his position. * TheBGrade: Invokes this trope by threatening to send [[spoiler:Grace]] to [[GildedCage Mayberry's College for Young Ladies]] against her will if she gets less than A on her drama exam, [[spoiler: [[HopeSpot She succeeds ]] despite his attempts at blackmailing Rich into throwing it only for him to try and [[JerkAss send her anyway]]]] * CampStraight * ControlFreak * DeanBitterman * DeathGlare: Gives quite a formidable one to [[spoiler:Rich]] while they are having dinner * [[spoiler:[[EducationMama Education Papa]]: Considering he's the principal of a school this is hardly suprising.]] * FauxAffablyEvil * HappilyMarried: [[spoiler: not so much in the Season 5 finale]] ** To the point of SickeninglySweethearts with the dancing and the pea song. * HeyItsThatGuy: Chris Addison was Ollie in TheThickOfIt * KickTheDog: On a regular basis [[spoiler:But expelling all of Grace's friends from college stands out.]] * [[spoiler:KnightTemplarParent: putting a tracking device on his daughter pushes him firmly into this category.]] * LargeHam * LukeIAmYourFather: Reveal to audience only. * [[spoiler: MeddlingParents]] * NamesToRunAwayFromReallyfast * NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Is based on DavidCameron, there's even a photo of him with David Cameron in one episode [[TakeThat which he vomits his sandwich onto.]] * OlderThanTheyLook: The actor is nearly 40 but he doesn't look older than thirty and the character has to be older than that because [[spoiler:he has a seventeen year old daughter]]. * [[spoiler:OverprotectiveDad]] * [[spoiler:ParentalMarriageVeto]] * SadistTeacher: As he put it Education is war against inefficiency, ignorance, idleness, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and chewing gum.]] * ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections * SharpDressedMan !!Gregory -->Played by: Alastair Mackenzie * DisappearedDad !!Eric -->Played By: Justin Edwards * ActorAllusion: Clare Grogan's ex-partner is called Gregory. * [[ParentalSubstitute Paternal Substitute]]: Eric is probably a better father figure to Mini than her biological one, [[spoiler: especially since he tracks down a heavily-pregnant Mini before she runs away with Franky]]. * YoureNotMyFather: Mini's initial attitude towards him. [[/folder]] ---- [[folder: U.S. Cast]] !The Kids !!Tony Schneider -->Played by: James Newman -->''British Counterpart: Tony Stonem'' * AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Has a thing for Tea. * IncompatibleOrientation: With Tea. * {{Jerkass}} !!Michelle Reinhart -->Played by: Rachel Thevenard -->''British Counterpart: Michelle Richardson'' * AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: How she sees her mother. * ObfuscatingStupidity: As the principal points out during Michelle's episode, Michelle is very intelligent and gifted, but dumbs herself down to attract boys and hard-partying friends. * SelectiveObliviousness: She's pretty much the only one who doesn't know Tony's been cheating on her. !!Stanley Lucerne -->Played by: Daniel Flaherty -->''British Counterpart: Sid Jenkins'' * ADateWithRosiePalms: In Tony's episode and again in Cadie's episode, [[{{Squick}} this time on Michelle's bed while holding her teddy bear.]] * ThePreciousPreciousCar: Steals his father's car only for it to blow up after being caught driving without a license, although it's actually TheAllegedCar and it was precious for sentimental reason. * TheStoner !!Chris Collins -->Played by: Jesse Carere -->''British Counterpart: Chris Miles'' * {{Expy}}: While the other Skins US characters have been developed beyond their British inspirations somewhat, he remains essentially a direct copy of the original Chris, if a bit meaner. * [[HotForStudent Hot For Teacher]] * LifeOfTheParty: Relative to the other characters, that is. Though [[http://www.rophydoes.com/skins-recaps/us/107-michelle/ at least one person]] thinks it's an InformedAttribute. * TheStoner !!Cadie Campbell -->Played by: Britne Oldford -->''British Counterpart: Cassie Ainsworth'' * ButNotTooBlack * {{Cloudcuckoolander}} * DullSurprise * KnifeNut * NoMedicationForMe * RaceLift: Cassie was White, while Cadie is biracial (Black and White). * RoomFullOfCrazy: What her mom thinks of her room.

[[RelationshipWritingFumble Um, okay...]] * TwoferTokenMinority: Lesbian and (half-)Jewish. * UnkemptBeauty: A minor example. !!Daisy Valero -->Played by: Camille Crescencia-Mills -->''British Counterpart: Jal Fazer'' * BuxomIsBetter * ElegantClassicalMusician: Like Jal, although Daisy plays the trumpet. * [[spoiler:FriendsWithBenefits: With Abbud, though the moment slightly hints [[JustFriends at something more.]]]] * MistakenForGay: By Tea's family. * [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Like her British counterpart, Daisy tends to play this role - though she is a bit wilder than Jal was. * RaceLift: Jal was Black; Daisy is Latina (though she looks more Filipina than she does Latina, as Camille is half-Filipina). * TeamMom: Even more so than Jal. * [[spoiler:TheirFirstTime: She and Abbud lose their virginity to each other in her Season 1 episode.]] !!Abbud Siddiky -->Played by: Ron Mustafaa -->''British Counterpart: Anwar Kharral'' * AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Has a thing for Tea. * FriendsWithBenefits: How his relationship with Daisy [[spoiler: starts out]]. * GirlOnGirlIsHot: Why he went to Tea's "Big Gay Night Out." Was disappointed when they turned out to be much more interested in each other than in the dudes like him looking on. * IncompatibleOrientation: With Tea. * NatureAbhorsAVirgin: [[spoiler:Not anymore apparently, as of Daisy's Season 1 episode.]] !!Eura Schneider -->Played by: Eleanor Zichy -->''British Counterpart: Effy Stonem'' * TheVoiceless !Family !!Michelle's Mom * AmazinglyEmbarrassingParent * ReallyGetsAround !!Nana Marvelli * BiTheWay * InTheBlood: Likes the ladies, just like her granddaughter. !Supporting Cast !!Tabitha * BlondesAreEvil * {{Expy}}: Of Abigail Stock. * RichBitch !!Mad Mao Le Dong * AxCrazy * BadassGrandpa: Not in a good way. * {{Expy}}: Of Mad Twatter. * UnfortunateNames !!Betty * TheBeard: Her boyfriend. * {{Gayngst}} * LipstickLesbian !!Tina * ADayInTheLimelight: Her episode. * {{Expy}}: Of Angie from the original. * HotForStudent [[/folder]]correct page.
