Alice Oseman, Yasmin Finney, Corinna Brown and Kizzy Edgell talk about bringing the graphic novel series to the screen


For years, readers have been obsessed with the Heartstopper graphic novels. Now we get to fall for the characters all over again on the screen. We got to talk with the creator and cast about the magic of the show. Are you ready for your teaser for what’s in store within the pages of our May issue?

Meeting the cast who would play the characters she’d created…

“I just remember watching the group scene they were all in. My mind was blown. I knew from then that they were going to do such an amazing job.”

Yasmin on

Opportunities for up and coming LGBTQI actors…

“It’s really happening. 2022 is the year of the queer. We’re taking over, it’s really exciting.”

Corinna on

How coming out was handled within the show…

“It’s really important because it’s a reminder that not everyone’s experience is the same.”

Kizzy on

What they hope viewers take away from watching Heartstopper…

“Queer love is pure. It’s not dirty, it’s not adult.”
