Michaela Coel Remembering Old Lines Video

Michaela Coel Was Quizzed on Her Past Lines, and She Only Forgot the 1 She Wrote Herself

Michaela Coel is making (huge) waves in the entertainment industry right now for the BBC series I May Destroy You, which she not only created and wrote but also stars in. But Coel has had many roles — both starring and supporting — throughout her career, in huge productions like Star Wars, Top Boy, Black Mirror, and Chewing Gum. On Tuesday, BBC Radio 1 presenter Nick Grimshaw sat down virtually with Coel to quiz her on her own lines from her past roles, and honestly, she did really well.

Starting with Star Wars, Coel was quick to remember her brief line. As for Top Boy, well, she guessed the gist of it. But when it came to the final hurdle — remembering one of her lines from the show she wrote herself, Chewing Gum — she had zero recollection at all. You can watch the full, chuckle-inducing interview above, and you can also catch Coel in I May Destroy You on BBC iPlayer right now.
