Emma Corrin is letting their Schitt’s Creek fan flag fly!
W Magazine is doing their second annual TV Portfolio, where they ask TV stars to pay homage to their favorite TV characters, and Emma Corrin has stepped into the very fashionable sweater of one David Rose.
“Schitt’s Creek has become my go-to, comforting favorite,” they told W. “It’s a they-feel-like-my-friends kind of TV program...When I watched it, I devoured the whole thing.”
She also said she’s gotten the chance to meet Dan Levy. “Dan Levy came to see my play, and I had dinner with him,” she said. “He’s a gem. He’s the wisest, kindest, funniest person, and I didn’t want it to end. I feel like we could have talked forever. It was really nice.” (We want to be invited next time!)
Corrin even told Levy that she was dressing up as him! And she got his blessing! “I was like, ‘Oh, I’ve got a shoot tomorrow. I’m dressing up as you,’” Corrin says she told him, “He looked terrified. He was like, ‘Oh no.’ But I sent him the picture, and I think he likes it. I got the seal of approval.”
They continued gushing about the show throughout the interview, saying that they had a hard time picking just one character to dress as. “I definitely wanted that sweatshirt, because I feel like that’s the iconic one,” she said of her final outfit choice. “But there are so many good ones. Basically, everything [David] wears, and everything Catherine O’Hara wears is incredible. I could have done [the whole family]. I wanted to learn the dance to ‘A Little Bit Alexis.’”
I, personally, would pay waaaayyyy too much money to see that.
Corrin, who won a Golden Globe and has been nominated for an Emmy for playing Princess Diana in The Crown, came out as queer back in April when she posted a picture of herself in a wedding dress with the caption “Ur fave queer bride.”
This summer, they also came out as using both she and they pronouns, and showed off that they sometimes wear a binder. While the post shows them using bandages as a binder, she wrote you should always “bind safely,” and recommended their favorite brand, gc2b.
