Derry Girls final season was a star-studded occasion, with the likes of Liam Neeson, Fatboy Slim, and Amy Huberman all making cameos in the hit show.

But it was the final guest star that really impressed fans as Chelsea Clinton made an appearance as herself during the show’s final scene.

Opening up about what it was like to work on the comedy series, the former first daughter revealed it was an amazing experience.

Speaking at Belfast’s Our Place in Space festival, the former first daughter of the USA sat down with Derry Girls star Tara Lynne O’Neill, and confessed; “It was such a magical day when she (writer Lisa McGee) and the crew came and we filmed in New York, It was a bright, beautiful sunny day.”

Continuing; “I was so proud and excited that I was not only at the end of the series but I was at the last day of filming on the entire show.”

But it wasn’t just the filming that Chelsea enjoyed, as a fan of the show, watching the final episode with her appearance also made an impression.

“It was just a joy. I had even more fun than I expected to have. I cried when I watched it, even though I knew what was going to happen.” she explained.

Chelsea’s cameo was an important aspect of the show, as during her appearance she read a letter the girls had written for her back in the 90’s for her father, Bill Clinton’s Derry visit.

Both of the activist’s parents played a big role in Northern Irish history and Chelsea reiterated their commitment to the region.

Saying; “I have these vivid memories of my dad and my mum trying to help and all the hard work that went on. Americans feel great affection for this place and great pride that the country played even a small role in trying to reach the Good Friday Accords,”

“Also, my dad feels keenly that not only should the Good Friday Accords persist in whatever the appropriate configuration is that at least the majority of people can get behind, but also that the lessons from that time are remembered,” she said.
