The Inbetweeners

'The Inbetweeners' cast - James Buckley, Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison - have their own lives, but they behave more like their younger characters when they are all in the same room

'The Inbetweeners' cast become closer to their characters when they're all together.

The four main stars of the popular comedy - James Buckley, Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison - may be grown up with their own families and relationships, but Emily Berrington has had a chance to work with them on their upcoming movie and she revealed not everything is so different.

She said: "It's odd because individually all four Inbetweeners are totally different from their characters. They all have wives or long-term girlfriends and there were even baby Inbetweenies on location with us.

"But when they are together as a group filming they are amazingly similar - James Buckley, for example, thinks there is nothing funnier than breaking wind and Joe Thomas is famous for eating disgusting things.

"One day on set I would a dead cockroach on the floor and I said to Simon Bird, 'Yuk, look at that', and he went, 'I reckon we can get Joe to eat it.' "

Despite a typically boyish atmosphere on set, Emily explained the show's huge female fanbase will love the highly-anticipated second movie.

She told the Mail on Sunday newspaper's You magazine: "Being a teenage girl is a traumatic, confusing, oily-skinned experience and it's great to see that from the perspective of a teenage boy you were probably a goddess whose whole life seemed sorted.

"I think that's what women like about 'The Inbetweeners!' "

Eternal teenagers Will, Simon, Neil and Jay head to Australia in pursuit of Jay's lovely ex, Jane (Bewley). Heaving with bad-taste humour, it manages to feel less tired than the first film thanks to energetic direction, honed performances and some truly spectacular stupidity.
