Who is Robyn Cara and what else has she been in?

Robyn is known for her role in a number of other TV shows, including Apple TV+'s Trying and BBC's Life.

She first appeared in Ackley Bridge in season four in 2021.

Speaking about the new series, Robyn said: "In the new term, there's some unexpected new arrivals that come to make Ackley their home. You see a lot of new characters that are connected to the old ones like Shobhit’s and a lot of fun and mishaps and love triangles and everything like that."

And describing her character she added: "I play Kayla, who's a student at Ackley. She's very endearing, she's really sweet, she hasn't quite grown into herself yet, which hopefully you see through the series.

"She's both Pakistani and English and lives predominantly with her mum and my older sister, Marina. Marina really kind of resents Kayla - she just feels like she's so different from her mum and she never lets her forget that!"
