Kizzy Edgell is proud of their bisexuality. No wonder, they were more than excited to inspire a whole new generation of LGBTQ+ youth as a cast of Netflix’s queer drama Heartstopper.
Let’s learn more about them as this Bio proceeds.
Kizzy Edgell On Heartstopper
Kizzy Edgell played the vibrant, down-to-earth persona “Darcy Olsson” in Heartstopper. However, though Kizzy’s bi, their character Darcy isn’t. And this was exactly what the actress was more excited about.
Besides that, Kizzy was also all elated about being able to be a part of the show targeted to inspire the Gen-Z LGBTQ+ group. “I think that’s made me feel really lucky that I can talk about it, I can speak to people about it, and the lesbian representation and queer female representation, it’s something that does get missed out on a lot of LGBT+ shows,” they explained.
Furthermore, talking more about this “long overdue” show, Kizzy expressed that Heartstopper would be “relevant for all audiences” — regardless of age and sexuality. “It would be a good way to introduce kids to the concept of being queer,” they added before pressing the fact that there were no “kid-friendly” ways to do that before.
Joining Kizzy this season were its casts — William Gao (Tao Xu), Joe Locke (Charlie Spring), Kit Conno (Nick Nelson), Yasmin Finney (Elle Argent), Sebastian Croft (Ben Hope), Corinna Brown (Tara Jones), Jenny Walser (Tori Spring), Cormac Hyde-Corrin (Harry Greene), Sebastian Croft (Ben Hope), Echo (Nellie), Fisayo Akinade (Mr. Ajayi), and Chetna Pandya (Coach Singh).
Also, there were two new characters, Isaac Henderson (Tobie Donovan) and Imogen Heaney (Rhea Norwood), added to the cast who are mentioned in the graphic novels.
For those who are new to Heartstopper, it revolved around Charlie and his sports-loving crush Nick who discovers their unlikely friendship might be something more as they navigate school and young love.
Kizzy Edgell Net Worth
Kizzy Edgell garnered a net worth of under $50 thousand by 2022.
Well, this might be comparatively low in reference to their co-stars, but then again, Heartstopper was Kizzy’s first-ever TV show.
All excited to have landed the role on the Netflix show, Kizzy took it to their IG on April 26, 2021, to share, “the wonderful heartstopper cast!!! i luv being darcy and i am so excited for everyone to see what we’ve been working on :>”
They were represented by the Independent Talent agency in 2022.
Does Kizzy Edgell Have A Partner?
Kizzy Edgell separated their romantic life from their personal ones. So, we’ve no idea if they had a partner in 2022 or not.
However, we do know that they weren’t dating their on-screen girlfriend Corinna Brown.
Kizzy and Corinna had amazing on-screen chemistry. Having wonderfully represented a healthy lesbian relationship in Heartstopper, they’ve been an inspiration to many.
“Seeing the struggles I myself have faced as a lesbian made me feel seen and not alone,” a fan wrote.
“There isn’t a whole lot of lesbian representation in media and your portrayal of them was so awesome to see and me personally I felt so seen as a lesbian <3 so genuinely thank you,” another tweeted.
Also, many were delighted with the fact that Heartstopper chose to use the word “lesbian” to describe them, instead of “gay” — which is used as an umbrella term. Why? Well, they believed that the media has always made the world “lesbian” seem like such a “nasty and gross word.”
“Men often fetishize wlw/nblw so when it comes to the word lesbian, it seems like a negative connotation when it isn’t. I’m so glad the film incorporated that as well, it’s very important,” a fan posted.

Also, Kizzy mentioned that whenever they got a mention in a publication they would immediately send it to their mother. However, their mom sometimes did beat them to it and sent it to them first.
Besides their mom and dad, Kizzy has another important person in their family — their brother and their grandparents.
