The lovable lad was branded the 'worst Muslim ever' by his pals on the show due to his relentless drug-taking, drinking and eagerness to have sex with anyone - as long as they aren't related to him.
Back in the day: Dev Patel, 26, has blossomed into a heavy-hitting acting talent with a Best Actor in a Supporting role BAFTA to his name - but fans will still remember him as gangly, sex-obsessed Anwar Kharral in E4 drama Skins Fans might remember Dev's toe-curlingly embarrassing sex scenes, which sees Anwar list Hugh Grant films aloud in a bid to prevent premature ejaculation.'Do you mind if I list the complete filmography of Hugh Grant since 92? 'To slow things down'.'Bitter Moon, Remains Of The Day, Sirens, Four Weddings, An Awfully Big Adventure', he begins, moaning and panting heavily in between his words and he moves on top of her.
However, he has never forgotten his roots, joking that his alter-ego would be celebrating his BAFTA win in true Skins style.'If Anwar was here he'd be off his face right now', he declared, adding that his former co-star Chris Dempsie - who played hapless Chris - had recently texted him to say, 'Mate, can you believe it's been 10 years'.
Dev has confessed his 'heart rate rises a little bit' when he thinks about his Oscar nomination.
The sitcom's brave storylines clearly provided key actors with a blistering showreel - something that would stand them in good stead over the coming decade.
He told People: 'The fact that our little movie, that we shot in the middle of nowhere, has made it to the Oscar stage is reason enough for us to be really happy.
The role was enough of a showcase to capture the attention of director Danny Boyle, who was looking to adapt Indian novel Q&A for the big screen.
Patel took the title role in the subsequent film Slumdog Millionaire and bagged a beautiful girlfriend in the shape of co-star Frieda Pinto, although the couple split after six years together.
The show's name comes from the cigarette rolling papers known as "skins".
Other ventures to expand the brand have included a short-lived North American remake, which aired on MTV in 2011 but was cancelled after one season after advertisers abandoned the series in response to low ratings and the significant controversy which arose over its depiction of teen sexuality.
When controversial teen drama Skins burst onto television screens via E4 on January 25th 2007, it quickly made a huge impact.
