Saoirse-Monica Jackson, the best lasagne and a rosé
Listen now
Nick and Angela welcome an OG Derry girl to Dish HQ. Saoirse-Monica Jackson grew up in Northern Ireland and studied acting at the Arden School of Theatre in Manchester. She is best known and loved for her portrayal of Erin Quinn in the Emmy award-winning series Derry Girls. Over three seasons the 90s-set comedy became the most popular show on Channel 4 and is now a hit with a global audience on Netflix. It wasn’t long before Hollywood came knocking and Saoirse-Monica won a role in the DC superhero movie The Flash. She is currently starring in period drama The Doll Factory on Paramount+ and later in the year will also appear in The Decameron, based on Giovanni Boccaccio’s 14th-century collection of comic short stories. Nick kicks off proceedings with a bottle of the Waitrose loved & found Nerello Mascalese rosé while Angela puts the finishing touches to the best lasagne; a recipe by Martha Collison. As our trio tuck into their meal, they enjoy a delicious glass of the Waitrose loved & found Lacrima and discuss the pitfalls of planning a birthday party, Saoirse-Monica’s favourite snacks and Derry Girls the Movie.
