They learned about the birds and the bees on Sex Education, then Netflix gave Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey and Ncuti Gatwa their American education in a three-day road trip in the southern United States.
It was three days full of American firsts, including a crawfish boil, alligator—"It's been seasoned beautifully," Gatwa said. "It could be chicken," Butterfield added—and beignets in New Orleans. The trio had somehow never done karaoke before and crossed that off their list in NOLA as well. There was also twerking involved with the karaoke, so you have to see it all.
Then it was off to Nashville for their first Southern BBQ—it was just sides for Mackey, a vegetarian, who said, "This is probably the most brown-beige meal I've ever had in my life."—and "hillbilly" style experience with lots of fringe. Why'd they need the outfits? For line dancing, of course.
"The whole experience felt like an adventure! It was so much fun exploring new places with two of my favorite people," Mackey told E! News. "We sampled the culinary delights of New Orleans, rode horses at sunset in the fields of Tennessee and met some pretty wonderful people along the way who helped make our trip extra special!"
See the video above to experience all their firsts.
"The dirty South welcomes three British musketeers. We can assure you line dancing will be added to our resumes imminently," Gatwa told E! News.
Some fun facts about the trip not included: Butterfield previously lived in New Orleans for a movie as a teen, Gatwa searched every place in NOLA for any sign of Beyoncé, and Mackey was recognized by a fan for the first time while in Nashville.
