The praise for Sex Education has been overwhelming honestly completely overwhelming I think we definitely knew that we were filming something special and something different and I definitely got that sense from the script when I first got the script I was like this is just so unique I'll be honest with you I didn't know whether it was like I didn't know whether it was the worst or the best thing I'd ever read in my life because I was like what is like what is this but I would say it was just so funny but yeah I think as the shows came out the love that it's gotten has been so overwhelming and so humbling and I'm so grateful for it. RCS' approach in terms of training I think was very personal I think the teachers in the staff really got to know us quite well and I just felt very cared for I felt very cared for while I was there I felt very I felt like it was very safe space and I think obviously Scotland has such a thriving film and theatre scene, especially theatre but I think it being away from London and the the mayhem and the stress and the kind of claustrophobia of London was really great to train in because it just meant that you could concentrate on your craft. Glasgow is actually the best place to study because the nightlife is wicked the people are wicked the like vibrancy of the city is just like infectious and you just have a good time like people are very grounded, down-to-earth, fun there's so much going on there in terms of like theatre you've got the Citz, there's just so much going on there and there's so much to get involved in and it's beautiful as well. Glasgow's very very beautiful I think and there's real character there and I would not have picked anywhere else to study
