Aimee Lou Wood: Sex Education will explore new territory
Aimee Lou Wood says the fourth season of ‘Sex Education’ will explore “new territory”.
The ‘Living’ star - who has played Aimee Gibbs since the start of the Netflix series, which also stars Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson and Ncuti Gatwa - admitted the new school makes things feel “slightly off centre” after Moordale Secondary School was forced to shut its doors due to a lack of funding.
The 27-year-old actress told Digital Spy: "The characters feel like they're in very new territory because they literally are, they're at a new school. A lot of our feeling slightly off-centre is actually also just because of what is happening in the story which is that they are [at] a new school."
Aimee remarked on the “newness” running through the latest series of the show, after her character's best pal Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey) moved to America for the final year of school.
She said: "Aimee, particularly, her best friend's in America, she doesn't have a boyfriend for the first time ever, she's at a brand new school where she doesn't have any mates. So there's a lot of newness for all of the characters and I think that that does make the show feel very new."
The ‘On The Edge’ star admitted it has been a “fun acting challenge” trying to recapture the show’s charm amid all the new elements.
Aimee added: "[It's about] maintaining who they are when everything around us is different because it really does feel different. We've got different directors, different writers, so it's very, very, very new which can also be exciting."
