We thought that the news of another season of Derry Girls couldn’t be topped. But it has, as it seems Jamie Dornan could be making an appearance in the upcoming season.
Nicola Coughlan, who stars as Clare Devlin in the hit show, has hinted that Jamie could be making a guest appearance.
Speaking to the Irish Independent, Nicola revealed that Jamie has been talking to Lisa McGee about the opportunity.
“He’s definitely chatted to the writer, Lisa McGee, about joining Derry Girls. That would be the dream, and I would welcome him fully with open arms.”
She continued, “I would not object to Jamie Dornan [joining], and I don’t think anyone in their right mind would object to him.
“Although my character is a lesbian and I think he is a little old for the girls, he could play a cool uncle or something.”
Nicola then added, “I know Lisa gets emails every day from actors, because a lot of people would love to fit into the next series if they could.”
This comes after Nicola shared the news that filming for the next season hasn’t happened just yet.
Speaking with the Belfast Telegraph, she shared; “We’re still waiting, because it’s integral to the show that we film in Derry. And we can’t do anything involving a crowd right now, so logistically, it’s really tough.”
Despite this, Nicola has been in touch with show creator Lisa McGee who has shared the plot for the next season with her; “But I spoke to Lisa McGee recently and she talked me through the storylines.”
“They’re so brilliant, which doesn’t surprise me – she’s just incredible – but it made me want to do it right now. But we also want to do the best version of the show we can.”
