Outlander's Malva Christie unrecognisable in latest Derry Girls

By Kirsten McStay

Outlander fans couldn't believe their eyes when actress Jessica Reynolds appeared in Derry Girls last night, and looked completely different to her usual character Malva Christie.

Jessica played 'Wee Deidre' in the most recent episode of the Channel 4 hit comedy and it's safe to say her new character was a far cry from Malva from the 1700s.

In the scenes, Jessica donned a punk rock outfit, finished with a smokey eye, dog collar chains and spiked bracelets.

On Instagram, the star wrote: "So thrilled to have been able to play the wee rocket that was Wee Deirdre !!! Will cherish these people & memories on set forever adore this show, everyone on it & am so privileged to have been a part of it !!! Thank you @lisafromderry & Dir #michaellennox #derrygirls & the legends @cathyprior22 @m_robyn_w."

Many fans of Outlander and Derry Girls flocked to the comments to applaud Jessica for her portrayal of Deirdre.

One wrote: "Malva is that Youu?!! You are phenomenal girl!"

Another added: "A wee rocket playing a wee rocket."

While another wrote: "you were soooo good !!! queen moment !!"

Another commented: "Just finished the episode, I’m so proud of you."

And one said: "I love you Malva."

Jessica's character Malva was killed off the last season of Outlander in an incredible 'Who Dunnit?' cliffhanger.

Despite not being a very well liked character on Fraser's Ridge, Jessica took to Twitter to thank Outlander fans for supporting her during her short stint on the show.

She wrote: "The response to ep 6 has been overwhelming ! I’ve never seen a fandom like it.

"Thank you for loving (& despising) my troubled wee Malva. What a journey. Love love love to you all thank you @Outlander_STARZ."
