"Netflix haven't come to me. All I will say is, if Netflix are on it, I'm definitely down," she told Digital Spy and other press. "I was struggling to let go of Jaq, so if they want to bring it back, let's do it. But it's out of my hands." Jasmine Jobson


Addressing Bennett’s plans following her win for Best Supporting Actress at tonight’s (May 12) BAFTA Television Awards, Jobson revealed that Netflix is yet to approach her a spin-off, though she’s "down" if the streamer is too.

"Netflix haven't come to me. All I will say is, if Netflix are on it, I'm definitely down," she told Digital Spy and other press. "I was struggling to let go of Jaq, so if they want to bring it back, let's do it. But it's out of my hands."

Elsewhere, Jobson discussed how she prepared for the role of Jaq, revealing that she had spoken to some of her LGBTQ+ friends in order to "figure out the ins and outs" of portraying the character authentically.

"Sometimes I could ask wrong questions and, you know, it's all just a learning curve," she explained.

"So that's where I really went from there. And I just want to say that I'm very, very grateful for my friends because they've been a massive pinnacle in me creating this character."

"I've spoken to a few that have called me and they've said that, with the character that I've had in Top Boy, it's made them feel a little bit stronger in owning themselves, and I'm very happy that I've been able to be that person to make you feel like, 'I'ma own it'.
