Nicholas Hoult not returning for ‘Skins’ finale
It seems we won’t be seeing ring-leader Tony Stonem in the final season of Skins. Nicholas Hoult has claimed he is too busy with his career to reprise the role.
“No, I’m not going to be doing it.” Hoult reported to The Sun “I loved Skins but I don’t think I can fit it in.” The actor has been busy since his character left the show, most notably playing Hank McCoy in Marvel’s X-Men: First Class. Currently, the actor is busy with his new movie, Mad Max: Fury Road. “I’m filming Mad Max in Namibia, which will mean I’m away for ages.”
It’s a shame he won’t be returning. However, Skins writer Jamie Brittain confirmed earlier this year that Jack O’Connell will be returning to the series for the series-seven finale, reprising the role of Cook.
