Sex Education star Aimee Lou Wood has joked she got all her sex scenes out the way in season one after admitting she had much less involvement in intimate scenes in the latest season.
The Netflix show drops later this month and fans can hardly contain their excitement after a new trailer was released earlier this week.
Of course, followers of the comedy will know much-loved character Aimee Gibbs (played by Aimee Lou Wood) struggled to deal with the aftermath after she was sexually assaulted on a bus ride on her way to school on season two.
It left Aimee unable to make her usual trip to school and this season will see her continue to unpack the impact it’s left behind.
This season will see Aimee become a ‘feminist icon’ and form an admiration of the vulva as she starts to learn to like her body again.
The cast of the much-loved show have spoken out on what this year’s infamous intimate scenes were like to film, with Aimee admitting she had very little to do in the sex-scene department this season.
She told us: ‘I mean, I didn’t have any [sex scenes]! Since season one… I just got them all out there.
‘But yet we the only thing that we had – that isn’t even an intimate scene – was Chris [Jenks, who plays Aimee’s boyfriend Steve] and I bouncing on a trampoline.
‘That’s it? I’ve not had, any this season, we had a peck on the lips, Chris and I, and that felt a bit saucy after all that time!
‘I got off scot free, sex-scene wise this year,’ she joked.
Eric Effiong star Ncuti Gatwa said he found the process of filming more intimate scenes quite tricky, especially with Covid restrictions in place on-set.
Ncuti told us: ‘It’s kind of tricky because when everyone’s got their masks on, from a distance, you can’t hear anyone, “What are you saying? What was that comment?”
‘You can’t hear what anyone is saying, and you’ve got to kind of block it out… and then you’ve got to shoot the scenes!’
He went on to add: ‘The intimacy directors were very much involved in every intimate scene.
‘Everything was the same as before, but it just took longer and I guess you had to repeat what you were saying a couple more times.’
His character Eric will be trying to figure out his relationship with Adam Groff (Connor Swindells) this season after the latter had spent the previous two struggling to figure out his sexuality.
But will the pair manage to make their relationship last as Adam finally feels confident enough to navigate things with the glorious Eric in public?
Sex Education season 3 returns to Netflix on September 17.
