My Weekend Crush

I think we all deserve to watch “Killing Eve” star Jodie Comer and “Derry Girls” star Nicola Coughlan read each other love letters as Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf. This year has been a lot for everyone, and we still have almost half of it left. But romance, romance has no timeframe. It has no time period. It has no time limit. The project was for Amnesty UK as a celebration of Pride month. But it can be enjoyed at any time. In fact, I think I will again and highly recommend you do as well. I mean, two actresses who play queer female characters reading the real letter of two actual queer literary giants to each other? Yeah, we deserve this.

So here is Jodie as Vita reading a love letter to Virginia.

And here is Nicola reading Virginia's love letter response to Vita.

Swoon away, ladies. You’ve earned this. Happy safe, healthy and righteous weekend, all.
