Ok so now we are officially in love with Nicola Coughlan.
Not long ago we extolled our admiration for the Bridgerton and Derry Girls actor as an ally and advocate for LGBTQI+ rights. Just when we thought we couldn’t love adore her anymore, she goes and does this.
One of the biggest breakout moments from this second series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK was the ‘RuRuVision’ challenge where the queens wrote their own verse for Eurovision pastiche track UK Hun.
Front runner Bimini performed a standout gender bending rap that clearly caught the eye of Nicola who recorded her own version in black and white pure Shakespearian dramatic realness and popped it on her Twitter account. We are living for it and here it is. Stop reading this clap trap and watch it now!
In honour of @dragraceukbbc Day may I present my ode to @biminibabes– UK Hun, but as a dramatic monologue in the style of the Royal Shakespeare Company pic.twitter.com/kFKkRV4S1P— Nicola Coughlan (@nicolacoughlan) March 4, 2021
