Heartstopper star Yasmin Finney opened up about why the character of Elle Argent felt like it “was created” just for her and the importance of LGBTQ+ representation.

The 19-year-old discussed her trailblazing role on the Netflix series during an appearance on Queerpiphany with Tayce and Munroe Bergdorf.

The award-nominated digital series sees the two hosts sit down with a number of LGBTQ+ stars to discuss the iconic pop culture moments that shaped their queer experiences. “The first time I did see a televised black trans-girl was you [Munroe] and that was on Good Morning Britain,” Yasmin explained during the first episode of season two. “I was so infatuated that when I saw you on-screen, I was like ‘oh my god, that’s- that’s fab!’ We’ve got somebody who’s fighting the corner that I didn’t know I had – I didn’t know what I was back then.
