What’s It Like To Be A Booked And Busy Irish Queen? With Actress Nicola Coughlan

Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness #147 February 4, 2020

Nicola Coughlan was born in Galway Ireland where she started acting at a young age. She made her screen debut in a 2004 Irish short film and went on to attend the Oxford School of Drama and Birmingham School of Acting. In 2018 she booked the Netflix Irish sitcom Derry Girls and made her West End debut in Donmar Warehouse’s production of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. She’s always been a fierce advocate for women’s rights, the homeless, and LGBTQ+ communities and continues to use her voice to speak up for those who aren’t heard. She joined Jonathan in a London studio to talk about growing up in Ireland including some history, life after attending drama school, and an exciting new project with Shonda Rhimes!
