Actress I May Destroy You

After a break from acting to work on her first series of the fourth-wall-busting Chewing Gum, Coel was pulling an all-nighter drafting the show’s second season when she went out for drinks with friends and was drugged and raped. Afterward, she reevaluated her career choices, declining to do a third season of Chewing Gum and putting up firm boundaries with her agents at CAA, insisting that she retain control over the property. She also made the decision to write and direct I May Destroy You, which stars Paapa Essiedu as Arabella, a young woman trying to complete her book in the wake of her assault.
