Mimi Keene Has a Close Relationship with Her Cast Mates
In “Sex Education,” Keene plays a high school socialite who develops feelings for an unexpected love interest. And while the actress joked that she did not relate to her character’s meanness, she admitted, “I feel a lot more confident in myself after playing Ruby.”
“Everyone’s so nice! We’ve known each other for quite a long time now as it’s the third season. But I’d say my first close friend was Chaneil Kular who plays Anwar. Me, Chaneil and Simone Ashley (who plays Olivia) all sat together when we went for our first read through and we just got on straight away. They were my first crew.”

Mimi Keene’s Relationship with Social Media
Since making a name for herself as a talented actress, Keene has garnered a large social media following and had over three million followers on Instagram at the time of writing. However, the actress admitted:
“To be honest, social media has never been that important to me. I’ve never been very good at it. […] It’s great for weird facts and news and things like that. But I don’t know if I would say it was particularly important to me right now. I tend to dip in and out, but when I dip in, I do really enjoy it.”
