Mackenzie Davis To Play Kristen Stewart’s Girlfriend In ‘Happiest Season’

Davis is best known to us lezzies for playing Yorkie in Black Mirror episode “San Junipero.”

The announcement of Kristen Stewart being cast as one of the leads of Happiest Season—an upcoming lesbian romcom directed by dykon Clea DuVall—was almost too good to be true. But with additional casting news underway, it’s clear that this film isn’t just a recurring lesbian dream we’ve all embedded into our minds. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mackenzie Davis is in talks to play Stewart’s girlfriend in DuVall’s second feature.

Happiest Season, which was initially announced in April, follows a young woman who’s prepared a marriage proposal to her girlfriend at her family’s annual holiday party, but these plans are thwarted upon discovering that her girlfriend hasn’t yet come out to her conservative parents. It’s currently unconfirmed which particular roles Stewart and Davis will be taking on.

Like Stewart, Davis is no stranger to LGBTQ roles. She’s best known for playing Yorkie in the much-beloved Black Mirror episode “San Junipero,” which aired on Netflix in 2016. Completely revolving around a sci-fi lesbian love story, Davis’s character falls in love with a girl named Kelly, which leaves them both forever changed in their nostalgic, beachy town. Owning a GLAAD Award for Outstanding Individual Episode, “San Junipero” has left an iconic mark on the queer community for its depth, emotion, and optimism. In 2018, Davis played the titular character of the bisexual film Tully, who engages in a threesome alongside Charlize Theron’s character. With a track record as amazing as this, I couldn’t be more thrilled to witness the Lesbian Energy between her and Stewart on the big screen.
