Here's where you've seen Otis Milburn from Netflix's Sex Education before.

Netflix’s latest comedy-drama series, Sex Education, is scoring rave reviews for all the right reasons.

The progressive, sex-positive show explores all the awkward intimacies of teen sex and coming to terms with your body during the universally weird phase that is adolescence.

However, if you’ve watched Sex Education’s leading character, Otis Milburn (played by 21-year-old Asa Butterfield) then you’ve no doubt wondered to yourself: “Where do I know him from?”.

It’s because Butterfield was the brown-haired and wide-eyed leading child actor from films like the critically-acclaimed, 2011 Martin Scorsese masterpiece Hugo – in which he played the titular character – as well as Bruno in the 2008 film adaptation of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

Twitter users have made a point of looking up where on earth they’ve seen Otis before too.

But that’s not it. The British actor has a pretty impressive film resume which also includes starring opposite Game of Throne’s Maisie Williams in the 2018 rom-com Then Came You and being directed by Tim Burton in the 2016 film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Here are all the other films and series you’ve probably seen the actor in.
