Asa Butterfield talks to Caroline Frost about starting his career as a young actor, the making of Sex Education and what to expect in series three of the hit Netflix series.
“I don’t think any of us realised the scope that Netflix brings - being on the platform and being available around the world immediately for anyone to watch on their phone or their TV,” he told the RTS.
“It’s insane. I’d worked in film where there’s a build up to the release date, but to have it all there at the touch of your fingers was quite surreal.

The hit comedy series follows the sexual exploits and mishaps of teens at the fictional Moordale High, where Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) run an illicit clinic offering sex advice to their classmates.
The first series saw the socially awkward and introverted Otis (Asa Butterfield) become an unlikely sex and relationships advisor to his teenage classmates as he followed in the footsteps of his sex therapist mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson).
The brand new eight-part series will follow Otis’s first ever relationship with his girlfriend Ola (Patricia Allison), and the new sexual urges and awkward encounters that come with it.
