The Sex Education cast on Netflix is led by Asa Butterfield as Otis Milburn, an insecure high schooler who has an unexpected wealth of sexual knowledge due to his mother’s profession as a clinical sex therapist. After forging an unlikely alliance with school outcast Maeve (Emma Mackey), the pair strike a deal to run a sex clinic for the students at their high school in exchange for money.
Sex Education delves deep into the personal lives of the main characters, but what about their real-life counterparts? If you’ve ever wondered what the Sex Education cast is like when they’re not on set, you’ve come to the right place.
