THE BRITISH star and creator of hit TV show Chewing Gum won high praise from the daughter one of her comedy influences recently.
Michaela, who is currently in the US, crossed paths with Will Smith’s daughter Willow Smith.
Michaela wrote on Instagram: “When the talented, regal rebel @willowsmith says ‘omg your show is so funny’ and you think ‘Thanks… I got it from your dad’ #lahighlights.”
The BAFTA Award-winning show began streaming on Netflix last year, widening its reach around the globe.
Written by and starring Michaela, Chewing Gum follows Tracey Gordon (Michaela), a religious 24-year-old shop assistant who decides she wants to lose her virginity.
It’s a classic story about a sweet-hearted but sheltered woman coming into her own, but played through the series’ quirky characters.
