Robyn Holdaway is the actor who plays Layla in Sex Education - here's your need-to-know on them.

Sex Education season three arrived on Netflix on Friday September 17, and the new series has seen a number of new characters join the old favourites.

One of the actors joining the cast is Robyn Holdaway, who played recurring character Layla in the series.

Layla is a student at Moordale, who is non-binary and features in storylines alongside newcomer Cal (played by Dua Saleh).

Unlike Cal, who is very forthcoming and stands up to headmistress Hope against her stringent and unfair rules, Layla is a little more withdrawn and avoids conflict.
