NORMAL People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal are “desperate to celebrate” the show’s success together after being separated for months due to lockdown.
The stars of Hulu and BBC3’s adaptation of Sally Rooney’s bestselling book became overnight sensations when the show screen earlier this year but are yet to fully enjoy the moment together.
When the series dropped back in April on BBC iPlayer, it quickly became the shining light many viewers needed to counter lockdown boredom.
Overnight the stars of the show Daisy and Paul, who play Marianne and Connell, became celebrities with their social media followers skyrocketing and even a fan account created for Connell’s neck chain.
However, despite taking part in a host of interviews, sketch performances and photoshoots, the two friends are yet to properly celebrate the show’s triumph face to face due to coronavirus restrictions.
Speaking to Vogue on Wednesday Daisy, 22, revealed how she’s managed to keep in touch with Paul and the rest of the crew over Zoom.
She said of Paul: “Yes! We filmed a comedy sketch a few weeks ago, which was nice.
“I’ve seen so much of Paul Mescal, but it’s been via Zoom, and we’re desperate to celebrate together after going through the whole filming process as a team.
“It’s odd not to be able to experience this part of the process together, but we can’t wait to hang out with all our friends from the show.”
