Derry Girls’ Nicola Coughlan Reveals Series Three Scripts are ‘phenomenal’ « The Dazzling Nicola Coughlan


DERRY Girls’ Nicola Coughlan has revealed series three’s scripts are ‘phenomenal’.

The 33-year-old actress plays Clare Devlin in the hit Channel 4 comedy, which has been off screens since April last year.

Filming of series three has been massively delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, and while there is still no confirmed start date, Nicola is excited at what is to come.

She told The Guardian: “I’m not allowed to say anything about the scripts, but they’re just phenomenal.

Of writer Lisa McGee, she added: “She’s a proper genius, Lisa is. Now I just really want to go and do it, and we can’t!”

Nicola previously revealed how filming should have started in the summer, but the cast had had to make do with online video calls to stay in touch.

She said: “Filming has been put on hold for now which sucks, and we’re all really excited to go back and start again.”

Meanwhile, Nicola will soon be seen in Netflix’s spectacular new period drama, Bridgerton.

The drama is set in 1800s Regency Period in England and Nicola plays reluctant debutante Penelope Featherington.
