Gatwa’s Other Works

Fans might know the 29-year-old actor from his work in Netflix’s hit tv show Sex Education. He plays Eric Effiong in the show about a high schooler whose mother is a sex therapist.

“There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling,” Gatwa said of becoming the first Black actor to hold the doctor as a recurring role. “A mix of deeply honored, beyond excited, and of course a little bit scared. This role and show mean so much to so many around the world, including myself, and each one of my incredibly talented predecessors has handled that unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care.”

Whittaker Is Leaving Her Role As The Doctor

Whittaker still has one episode left, and fans hope they will get some answers about her love life in it. Ever since being was regenerated as a woman, fans have wanted to know what her sexuality is.
