Lisa McGee shared her thoughts during a 'Derry Girls' panel at the BFI and Radio Times Television Fest
‘Derry Girls’ creator Lisa McGee said that she is “furious” about Brexit’s potential threat to peace in Northern Ireland.
McGee, a native of Co Derry in Northern Ireland, was speaking on a ‘Derry Girls’ panel at this weekend’s BFI & Radio Times Television Festival in the UK.
McGee was joined onstage by ‘Derry Girls’ stars Nicola Coughlan, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, Dylan Llewellyn, and Siobhan McSweeney to discuss the comedy’s success.
The show, which is based in Co Derry in the 90s during The Troubles, tackles the political tensions of the era head-on.
“The Good Friday agreement should be sacred,” said McGee during the panel.
