The 37-year-old actress was best known for starring as one of the four main characters in the British sitcom 'Derry Girls' but found global fame in the role of Penelope Featherington in the Netflix period drama 'Bridgerton' before appearing alongside the likes of Margot Robbie, America Ferrera and Kate McKinnon in 'Barbie' and noted that she prefers her co-stars to be female.

Speaking as part of a post-screening panel of her new sitcom 'Big Mood', she said: "I really have worked with a lot of women. Derry Girls was predominantly women. Bridgerton, predominantly women. I think women just get my vibe. I'm a girls' girl. I'm like, 'Yay, let me work with you' .

Nicola joked that she "very bravely" worked with some men recently but found the whole thing to be a completely "different experience" to what she is used to.

She said: "I worked with men recently, actually. I am someone who has worked with men. It's very brave of me to say, but I have. But it is a different experience and it's lovely. It's just different. It's not as lovely as working with women."

The 'Seize Them!' star recently admitted that she had to go through "such an adjustment" after becoming known around the world amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking on UK TV show 'This Morning', she said: It was really, really strange. It was such an adjustment because ['Bridgerton]'] sort of came out and we heard all these numbers, 82 million people in month one and I couldn't compute that. Then, going back into the world being so much more recognisable I was like 'Oh right, oh, this is quite a big show then.'"
