After garnering critical acclaim and winning a BAFTA in 2021 for her portrayal of Aimee Gibbs in Netflix’s Sex Education, Aimee Lou Wood — seen on this digital cover wearing Desigual x María Escoté — can finally take some time for introspection.

“It’s a very recent thing that’s happened to me where I just…” Wood trails off, considering her next words carefully. “I really just want to feel everything. I’ve spent so long being quite like [my character] Aimee, being so afraid to feel certain things – but I’ve opened up. I’m in this space where I’m not afraid of feeling.”

With so much going on in her life, it’s no surprise that the 26-year-old actor has a lot of emotions with which to contend. The third series of Sex Education recently arrived on Netflix to widespread critical praise, and Wood’s storyline specifically has been heralded as a gripping and stunningly accurate portrayal of the aftermath of sexual assault. While the arc itself is understandably dramatic, Wood captures the story with both ease and humour, making for a compelling depiction rarely seen on mainstream television.
