Michaela Coel: ‘I remember feeling like people found me disturbed’
From turning down a million-dollar deal to not having enough money to buy both food and thrush medication, Michaela Coel gets into it all with @emmabarnett on Tuesday’s Woman’s Hour podcast.
The creator and star of award-winning BBC drama I May Destroy You discusses everything from gaining closure after her own sexual assault to taking on the TV industry, social media boundaries to putting period sex on screen🩸 and her new book Misfits: A Personal Manifesto, inspired by her MacTaggart lecture in 2018.
