Gillian Jacobs Talks Dan Harmon’s Firing From ‘Community’
When "Community" showrunner Dan Harmon was fired from the NBC series last month, no one was more upset than the NBC comedy's stars.
A month and a Critic's Choice Award later, Gillian Jacobs (who plays Britta on "Community") is still upset that Harmon won't be returning to the show.
"We all texted him our congratulations [on his win]," Jacobs told Vulture. "We're all very grateful to him, because he really changed our lives and our careers, so we have an infinite amount of gratitude towards him and his beautiful writing and his ambition."
This isn't the first time Jacobs has expressed her sadness over the loss of Harmon. "I'm so grateful to @danharmon for my role, the show and everything else. Thank you, Dan. Thank you," she tweeted in May.
Though she is best known for playing the flawed wannabe psychologist Britta on "Community," Jacobs also appears in the film "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World," opening on Friday, June 22. Jacobs has a cameo in which she kisses Keira Knightly.
"I didn't maul Keira Knightley, but I had to just go for it. It was kind of an out-of-body experience," she told vulture. "You know, when you find yourself doing something you haven't done in your life."
