We’ve been smitten with Sofia D’Elia Black since the first episode of Skins. Maybe it’s the leather jackets or the way she plays the brash, confident Tea to a T, but we are girlcrushin’ on her hardcore.

We’ve got five need-to-know facts about Skins’ sauciest star. We know, as if you need another reason to love her!


5.  Sofia has eclectic taste in music.  In an interview with Wetpaint, she divulged a few songs from her personal playlist. Sofia loves grooving to Lupe Fiasco while she’s getting ready for a night out. But when it comes to staying in and setting the mood, she keeps Radiohead’s “Muse” on her sexytime soundtrack. Hilariously, she also has Jesse McCartney’s entire album on her iPod.

4. She loves television. Sofia’s small screen obsessions include Friends, Arrested Development, Lost, and Madmen.

3. She had her first kiss in 7th grade. Sofia dished the adorable details to Wetpaint:
“We were playing Manhunt and I had my first kiss with the boy that was good at basketball in my middle school.” Tweenage boys and those dribblin’ skills — swoon!

2. She subscribes to the Skins lifestyle. When Sofia found out she got the role of Tea, she celebrated by "shopping for a good amount of time and then getting very drunk." We think her boozin’, gender-samplin’ show counterpart would approve!

1. She’s a closet geek! The Skins actress tells Collider that she’d love to do some sci-fi movies and even star in the next Star Trek flick. Color us shocked by Sofia’s surprisingly nerdy tendencies.
