Asa Butterfield joined Capital Breakfast ahead of the release of his new film, Your Christmas or Mine?
The actor, who is in the process of filming the latest instalment of the hit Netflix Series, chatted about the addition of Schitt's Creek's Dany Levy to the cast.
Despite his excitement of Dan joining the team, Asa had some disappointing news for fans of the show.
"I didn't have any scenes with him, I was so disappointed he plays one of the American university teachers and my character stays in Wales."
"I was so looking forward to it but I have no stories."
The actor also spoke about how proud he was of the success of the show, "When it first came out, it took us all by surprise I think. It’s quite a risky show in some ways and it was treading new ground and we didn’t expect it to have such a global appeal.”
Back in May it was announced that Asa's Sex Education costar, Ncuti Gatwa, would be replacing Jodie Whittaker as the next Doctor Who.
When asked what he'd made of the exciting news Asa revealed he had found out at the same time as the general public: "He hadn’t told me, I saw it in the news and was like ‘Excuse me!?’ and had to text him."
"It’s huge, it’s so incredible and he’s going to do such a good job."
Glad to see they're both smashing it!
