Saoirse Ronan joined the cast of Derry Girls in a hilarious sketch for RTE’s Comic Relief which aired in Ireland on Friday night.
For the sketch that aired on RTE in Ireland on Friday, the stars of Derry Girls – Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Nicola Coughlan, Dylan Llewellyn, and Louisa Harland – join together on Zoom in anticipation of a meeting with Oscar-nominated Saoirse Ronan.
Naturally, there’s great excitement amongst the gang, especially since, according to Saoirse-Monica Jackson, this could be a great opportunity to break away from their Derry Girls characters.
“It’s just everybody thinks we’re exactly like our characters in Derry Girls,” she says, sounding an awful lot like her character Erin on the hit show. “We need to prove that we’re serious, intelligent young women.”
