The Heartstopper Cast Marched in London Pride And Melted Hearts

The cast of Netflix’s LGBTQ+ teen romcom, Heartstopper, was featured at London’s Pride parade on Saturday.

Draped in a Pride flag, Joe Locke, who plays curly-haired main character Charlie Spring, and Kit Connor, who plays rugby hunk Nick Nelson, held hands and waved to the crowd. Fans of the show lost it – in person and online.

Joe and Kit were joined in the parade by Sebastian Croft (Ben Hope), Corinna Brown (Tara Jones), Tobie Donovan (Isaac Henderson), Kizzy Edgell (Darcy Olsson), and Jenny Walser (Tori Spring).

When the group encountered anti-LGBTQ+ counter-protesters, the actors drowned out their chants by singing Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody and gave the middle finger as they jumped up and down.

Joe and Kit proudly posted about the interaction on Twitter.

Heartstopper, based on Alice Oseman’s graphic novel, broke records with critics and audiences alike when it debuted in April 2022.

The lovable show has already been picked up for a second season, which is likely to air in 2023.
