Derry Girls Is A Wonderful Historical Drama That Is Timeless and Universal
“Derry Girls is a perfect period piece that transcends time and place,” says Dylan Llewelyn, who plays James Maguire on the show. “It’s very well, as well as the personalities are well,” says the author. Llewelyn is originally from Wales, but he has spent most of his career working in Ireland. He has appeared in some of the country’s most popular shows, including Love/Hate, Ros na Rún, and Red Rock. But it is Derry Girls that has brought him the most attention. The show, set during The Troubles in 1990s Northern Ireland, follows a group of teenage girls as they navigate the joys and sorrows of adolescence.
What is all you need to know about Derry Girls?
Llewelyn says that he was drawn to the show because of its “uplifting” message. “It’s a drama about devotion as well as community, but it’s set at a time when those qualities were incredibly important,” he explains. “I consider humanism is topical because it is about youths deciding to leave their imprint in the universe, something I think we can all relate to,” says the author.
While Llewelyn is best known for his work on Derry Girls, he has also appeared in several other popular shows, including Game of Thrones and Outlander. When asked about his favorite scene to film on Derry Girls, Llewelyn says that it’s hard to choose just one. “I believe my greatest sequences are indeed the ones in which we’re everything together,” he continues. “We have such a great time when we’re filming those.”
