Roger Humphrey, her father, was from the United Kingdom, and died in November 2010.
When Scodelario was a child, she and her mother brought her to London when she was four years old. They spent their first night on the street before finding a council flat on Holloway Road. Scodelario used her mother's surname and spoke Portuguese at home. She attended Bishop Douglass Catholic School and then Islington Arts and Media School. She was involved in school plays and found solace in the process of bullying. Her mother worked multiple jobs to make ends meet and suffer from clinical depression that aggravated during Scodelario's teenage years. Scodelario said she wanted to help but didn't know how at the time and moved to a Camden flat.
Jack O'Connell, Scodelario's co-star, was dated for about a year before they split up in June 2009, and they're all good friends. Elliott Tittensor's wife was in a relationship from late 2009 to early 2014. Tittensor was convicted of assaulting someone while driving an uninsured vehicle during their marriage.

Scodelario appeared in the first series of Skins as Effy Stonem in 2007, at the age of 14 and with no acting experience. Scodelario was dissatisfied because she was too young, but a producer told her to stay, and she was asked to read for the role. Although Scodelario's role in the first series had little speaking lines, her character developed well during 2008. After the cast had been replaced with a new generation of characters, she became the central character in the 2009 and 2010 series.
