Season 6, Episode 21,   Nov 09, 2023, 04:00 AM

Actress Tanya Reynolds talks about why being an introvert is a superpower, her final Sex Education scenes and when books come into your life and act like medicine.

Tanya was named  as one of Screen International's Stars of Tomorrow in 2020, and has recently been treading the boards at London’s Almeida Theatre in critically acclaimed play A Mirror.

Tanya’s book choices are:
** Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
** Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
**  My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferante 
** Quiet by Susan Cain
** Everyone in this room will someday be dead by Emily Austen
