'Sex Education' Is Casting a Transgender Couple for Season 4
No acting experience necessary.
The Netflix comedy-drama is seeking to cast parts for Abbi, a young trans girl, and Kent, a trans guy. Together they make the “ultimate power couple.”
“Abbi is the leader of her group and the queen bee of her college — every girl either wants to be like her, or be friends with her,” reads the casting call shared by Sex Education writer Krishna Istha on Twitter. “She’s sunny, magnetic, generous and loyal. When Abbi came out as a trans woman, she was kicked out of the house by her conservative parents. She currently lives with her boyfriend, Kent, whose family are much more accepting.”
Meanwhile, Kent’s personalty seems somewhat the opposite of his girlfriend’s. “Kent is trans-masculine, goofy, forgetful, and a great listener,” reads his description on the casting call. “Kent isn’t as sure about being one of the popular kids as Abi.”
Those interested in auditioning for either roles can email their information to email@example.com and would need to be available to shoot in Wales from April to November 2022. See the tweet below for more details on the Sex Education casting call.
