Aimee Lou Wood Finished Being Perfect — Here’s What’s Next
More deeply, Wood managed to dig deep and excel in an improvised drama exercise during his high school English class. “I made this funny Father Christmas character. Everyone laughed, and it felt great,” she recalls. “Everybody was shocked because they said, ‘This kid can’t talk!’ Since then, I’ve completely broken the seal, and you can’t lock me up in lessons. You can’t stop me from interrupting the class. It’s like a lot of things in my life – I go from one extreme to another and then find a balance. “
What will the unconfident Aimee who was too scared to audition for Annie say to her now? “I think she’ll be like that,”What?? I think we will become a novelist! What did you do You’re supposed to be Virginia Woolf! You definitely have to be behind the scenes. ‘ … She’s a girl who likes to take out a dictionary, read each word and put each word into context in a sentence. But I mean, I think she’s going to find it pretty cool, to be honest,” she said.
When our time ended and she went back to filming Sex education, I asked about what’s in store for season four. “What I like about Aimee this season is that she doesn’t have any other fluffy blankets around at the start. Maeve is in America. She doesn’t have Steve anymore. She is starting a new school, so she is very independent. Even though I feel sorry for her in that way, it also makes her go, ‘Okay, who am I that isn’t a best friend or girlfriend?’ What she discovered was really exciting and unexpected,” she said. “Much of this series is about her finding out she’s smart and making her feel like she isn’t because her brain works in a different way. She’s been the constant laughing stock because she says the wrong words and she’s on top of the cloud, and this season, she says, ‘Really, it makes me feel a bit bad that people don’t think I’ve got it. things to offer . ‘ It’s really great that she’s so vulnerable about it, realizing that she has so much to say and so much to offer. “
Aimee Lou Wood is definitely someone with a lot to offer.
