Emma Mackey has reflected on the success and importance of hit teen Netflix series Sex Education while posing up a storm in a glamorous shoot for Hunger magazine.

The actress is known for playing the intelligent, sarcastic outcast Maeve Wiley in the hit series, but she looked a far cry from her TV alter-ego in the stunning shots, taken by famed photographer Rankin.

Emma, 25, praised the show, which is soon returning for its third season, as ‘so momentous as a concept, as a show, and the cast are phenomenal. ’

‘I genuinely care about them all a lot and I made lifelong friends,’ she added.

‘But the bittersweet nature of it is that I also can’t be 17 my whole life.’

While fans don’t know whether this upcoming season will be the last, Emma is already looking to the future and possibly venturing towards a career in filmmaking.

‘I’m very attracted and seduced by the idea of writing a film and conceiving something, being there at the conception of a story, working at it, seeing it through and then choosing a team,’ she explained.

Sex Education has received critical and commercial acclaim due to its honest portrayal of sex, friendships, and relationships.

The raunchy yet heart-warming teen drama follows the lives of students on a journey of self-love and acceptance, while also dealing with the many insecurities and questions young people face in a school environment.

Hardcore fans of the show are desperate to see Otis Milburn and Maeve get their happy ending after two seasons of will-they won’t-they.

The duo first teamed up offering sex and relationship advice to teens at their school in exchange for money… an unusual side hustle but, hey, it benefited them both.

‘It’s a new year, Otis is having casual sex, Eric and Adam are official, and Jean has a baby on the way,’ the official synopsis teases.

‘Prepare for commitment animals, alien phenomena, vulva cupcakes and much more of Madam Groff.’

HUNGER’s Take Control Issue launches on September 17.

Season 3 of Sex Education will be available to stream from Friday on Netflix.
