'They want to reduce women': Derry Girls Nicola Coughlan isn't here for your belittling remarks

You tell them.

Last month at the prestigious Bafta awards, Nicola Coughlin became the subject of negative press when a news outlet commented that her dress wasn't the "most flattering".

At the time, Nicola called out the publication telling them that they're wrong and that she in fact, felt and looked "smokin".

But now, speaking to The Hearld and reflecting back on the belittling remarks from the press, Nicola explained her concern for the media's focus on fashion over talent.

"They want to reduce women to 'Oh you look like this in a dress' and you're like 'No, no, I've worked so hard and have been acting since I was 14 years old, professionally'.

"And this show has been nominated for the best comedy, this is the best of the best and all you want to do is talk about my dress. I look good in my dress - whatever."

Nicola also revealed that she found the remarks to be "stupid" and won't let them get to her as she knows they're nothing more than a cheap dig.

For Nicola's latest role she's headed far from Derry, telling the paper that although she can't tell much, it's not going to be set in Ireland.

No matter what she does we know we'll be tuning in.
