Kathryn "Kat" Prescott (born 4 June 1991) is an English actress best known for playing Emily Fitch on the teen drama television series Skins and Carter Stevens in the 2014 MTV drama Finding Carter.[1]


In July 2008, Prescott and twin sister Megan appeared in an episode of soap opera Doctors, playing twin sisters Amy and Charlotte Wilcox in "Dare, Double Dare, Truth".[1][2] Beginning in early 2009, Prescott played Emily Fitch in series 3, 4 and 7 of Skins, with characters known as the "second generation".[1] Prescott stated on her official website in March 2010 that she had a role in the pilot of Goth.[3] Prescott is also now starring as Carter Stevens/Lyndon Wilson on MTV'S Finding Carter. The show was picked up for a second season by MTV.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Kathryn is six minutes older than her twin sister Megan. In providing her "Top Ten Playlist" on the Skins official website, Prescott named Röyksopp, The Cardigans and Metallica as her favourite music.[5] In response to a fan's question on her official website, Prescott revealed that she would prefer to not label herself regarding her sexuality, and that 'labels are for cans' (following rumours regarding the homosexuality of her character in Skins), but does not believe that "people are defined by their sexuality", suggesting that "it doesn't change who you are as a person".[6][7] Following another question, she revealed that while she is not 'strictly' a vegetarian, she is wary of what meat she consumes.[8]
