Aimee Lou Wood, Sex Education, admits that she broke her BAFTA award because she was too rough


Aimee Lou, a Sex Education star, has broken her BAFTA record.

It happened eight months ago, after the actress was awarded the award for the best female comedian performance.

She spoke Sunday at Silver Screen Beat: “I may have been a bit rough with my BAFTA and now there’s a slight swivel on it. It moves a bit, so I’m going to have to get that fixed.

“But I’m not sure how you go about getting a BAFTA fixed. I can’t exactly walk into a locksmith and say, ‘Hi, can you fix my BAFTA?’. It would look so smug.”

Aimee, 26, defeated Emma Mackey, her Sex Education costar, and Daisy May Cooper, comedy sensation to win the awards.

It’s been months since she was able to do it.

She said: “It was the most amazing feeling. I could not believe it. I did not think that was going to happen. I know everyone says they don’t expect, but I truly didn’t.

“I had not prepared anything to say, which was obvious when I did my speech. The only thing I could think of saying was, ‘Thanks nana’.”
