Derry Girls’ final ever episode ended with an unexpected cameo.
Speaking at a Channel 4 preview, McGee said that she originally wrote the cameo into the script to amuse herself.
The teenagers wrote the letter to Chelsea in the series two finale “The President”, set around Bill Clinton’s visit to Derry. The show’s creator and executive producer Lisa McGee wrote a similar letter to Chelsea when she was a teenager asking her to come to the cinema with her.
McGee also said that there were lots of cameo ideas, including Jamie Dornan, that hadn’t worked due to scheduling.
