You may know him best as the awkward, sexually frustrated, and perpetually embarrassing Otis Milburn in Sex Education on Netflix, but at only 23 years old, Asa Butterfield has a varied acting career that stretches over a whopping decade and a half.
We're taking you back to 2006, when Asa emerged as a child star. After small parts in After Thomas, Son of Rambow, and Ashes to Ashes, his breakthrough came when he starred in the The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, an adaptation of the popular book by John Boyne.
Next came appearances in popular franchises including Merlin, and Nanny McPhee, before another starring role came along when he played the titular tole in Martin Scorcese's Hugo. After that, no biggie just the lead role in Ender’s Game alongside Harrison Ford.
More movies followed, with parts in indie flicks, and romcoms as well as the Tim Burton movie Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, as well the lead role in British war film Journey’s End.
And now here we are. Sex Education and the birth of a Netflix icon in Otis Milburn.
