Nicola is really on a role these days with two uber successful shows including Bridgerton on Netflix and Derry Girls on Channel 4. Both shows have new seasons coming up very soon!

Although all the success still feels new to the star, she recenlty opened up about the hard time she had financially before landing her first big role in Derry Girls.

Speaking with the RTÉ Guide she said; “The fear of having nothing is still there. [Before Derry Girls] I was in debt with student loans, I was working minimum wage and the rent was so high.”

Continuing she added; “I only got Derry Girls five years ago so it’s not that long since I’ve been able to go and buy a coffee and not have a panic attack.”

“So, I reckon I’ll have a few more years of thinking ‘I hope I have some money in my bank account” and that it keeps her grounded; “You know what it’s like not to have all those things and you know how hard you’ve worked to get there.”

“For me to even be on a set is a privilege, to get an audition is a privilege because for years I couldn’t even get in an audition room,” she added.

Season two of Bridgerton premieres this Friday on Netflix and we cannot wait to see Nicola on our screens.
