We’ve been speaking to the lovely Nikki Runeckles who plays flirty schoolgirl Chantelle Parsons in BBC3 comedy Bad Education.
We’re sad to see the first series Bad Education ending, but glad to see a second is planned. Was the show as fun to film as it looked?
Yes it was great fun, all the cast and crew were friendly and helpful. There was alot of messing around aswell.
Is there anything you can tell us about series 2, or is it still top secret?
I actually dont know anything about series 2, but I hope lots more flirty fun for Chantelle.
Did any of the characters remind you of any of your teachers at school?
YES Pickwell! We had a wierd and scary teacher that said wierd things so we wound her up every day.
Hopefully they won’t see your answer to this, but who is funnier? Jack Whitehall or Matt Horne?
They both have very different qualities. so it depends on your sense of humour!
Are you working on any other shows that you can tell us about?
No not at the moment I’m sad to say! I am continuing to do some support work now.
What films and TV shows do you watch when you’re not working? Any favourite actors/actresses?
I love Friends, and An Idiot Abroad, so I constantly watch the repeats. My favourite actresses are Natalie Portman and Jennifer Aniston.
Finally, if you could choose any TV or film character to play, who would it be?
I would love to be in an action movie, so Lara Croft Tomb Raider!
Thanks for speaking to us, and we look forward to seeing you again in Bad Education Series 2!
