When Sex education hit our screens for the first time in 2019, it was an instant hit for several reasons.
Here we reveal the Sex education Season 3 cast – with some hints on where you might have seen them before.
Asa Butterfield plays Otis Milburn
Asa rose to stardom in 2019 directing the series as the main character Otis, a high school student who finds his way with the opposite sex and navigates life with his mother, a sex therapist.
Corn Sex education is certainly not the British actor’s first rodeo in the limelight. The talented 24-year-old has appeared in renowned films The boy in the striped pajamas, as good as Nanny McPhee.
Gillian Anderson plays Jean Milburn
Most recently known for her incredible portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in The crown, Anderson is a screen icon who has proven her versatility for any role, which is why we love her in Sex education as she plays Otis’ mother who is an eccentric (and super open) sex therapist.
Emma Mackey plays Maeve Wiley
When Sex education was first released, Mackey was inundated with fans comparing her to beloved Australian actress Margot Robbie. But the 25-year-old quickly opened a unique path to full-fledged stardom, with several other major film productions added to her resume.
She played a role in Winter lake in 2020, and is set to appear in two more films slated for release in 2022—Eifell and Death on the Nile.
Ncuti Gatwa plays Eric Effiong
Honestly, there’s nothing not to love about Eric (aka the talented Ncuti), Otis’ best friend who comes to terms with his sexuality (with all a brilliant humor along the way).
The 28-year-old Rwandan-Scottish actor was an immediate hit after the first season was released, and he’s already lined up other major productions on his schedule.Your lover’s last letter was his most recent stint at the movies.
Aimée Lou Wood plays Aimée Gibbs
Delicious Aimee Lou Wood is just as charming IRL as she is in Sex education–And the 27-year-old is quite versatile, having been a mainstay of the scene even before having her screen break on the Netflix show.
Its theatrical portfolio consists of Marie stuart, People, places and things and Uncle Vanya, to only cite a few.
Connor Swindells plays Adam Groff
Playing Adam, the unlikely and misunderstood director’s son, Swindells proved his acting skills on the hit show Day Dot. While he certainly has a face for television, Sex education was one of the actor’s and model’s first major concerts. He has since added Disappearance and Emma. to his cinematographic repertoire.
Jemima Kirke plays director Hope Haddon
Of Girls the notoriety comes from the beloved Jemima Kirke, who joined the cast of season 3 as the new director of Moordale Hight.
The London-born actress has added a host of productions to her portfolio after rising to fame in the comedy drama series directed by Lena Dunham, and will soon take on the starring role in the television adaptation of Sally Rooney’s cult novel, Conversations with friends.
Kedar Williams-Stirling plays Jackson Marchetti
Kedar plays the poster child of Moordale High, with the prefect and swimming champion to his name. The 26-year-old actor is no stranger to the screen, having previously starred in a 2010 film Shank and action drama Montana.
Jason Isaacs plays Peter Groff
Another major star to join the cast for Season 3 is Jason Isaacs. The British actor is perhaps best known for his role as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry potter movie franchise, but he’s also easily recognizable in iconic movies, most notably The Patriot, Peter Pan and Star Trek.
