    Anderson speaks candidly about why she was hesitant to play Maitlis at first, shares what finally made her say yes to the challenge, explains what that transformation ultimately entailed, and breaks down what it was like to shoot the showdown between her character and Prince Andrew (Rufus Sewell). 
    She also reflects on the conclusion of Sex Education, talks about finding fearlessness through creativity, and shares how her female fans inspire her to speak up for what she believes in.
