Are Alistair Petrie and Connor Swindells from Sex Education related in real life?
Mr. Groff and his son Adam took another step in their personal journeys in Season 3 of SEX EDUCATION, but are the performers related in real life?
From the outset, fans of Sex Education have watched Adam (Connor Swindells) and former headteacher Mr Groff (Alistair Petrie) have an uneasy father-son relationship. They’ve never gotten along, with Adam feeling like he’s a disappointment to his father, who has high expectations. Fans have been remarking on the casting selections for the parts since the Netflix show’s comeback with season three.
Fans have been remarking on how similar Petrie and Swindells appear on Twitter.
Pedro wrote on Twitter: “”Not just the looks,” Name Cannot be Blank responds, “but this is one of the best dad and son castings I’ve ever seen.” Their demeanors and personal belongings are absolutely in sync. Excellent acting.” “The way they smile is exactly the same, it’s mindblowing,” said a third. So, do the two performers have any sort of real-life connection? As Alastair Campbell takes over for Richard Madeley on GMB, viewers’switch off.’ While it would be wonderful to believe that the two actors are related, Petrie and Swindells are not related.
Petrie, 51, was born in Catterick, Yorkshire, and spent much of his childhood moving around the Middle East, Europe, and East Africa. Swindells, 25, grew up in East Sussex, while Petrie, 51, was born in Catterick, Yorkshire, and spent much of his childhood moving around the Middle East, Europe, and East Africa.
As a result, the actors’ resemblance is due solely to good casting.
When Petrie spoke to LadBible about Mr Groff, he corroborated this.
Brodie Petrie (@brodie.petrie) shared a post.
According to Petrie, “To me, he’s like a second son. I have two sons, but I consider Connor to be my third.
“He’s such a wonderful musician.
“They cast him before they cast me, and I remember everyone in the room saying, ‘oh, ok, I think we’ve got something here’ when we got together and read for the first time.”
Even though Petrie isn’t related to Swindells outside of the program, the actor does appear in the latest season of Sex Education with his real-life children.
