Gillian opened up about loving her new role in her Netflix comedy Love following the canceling of Community.

“It was all the things I was looking to do in a post-Community world,” Gillian tells ET. “I mean, I had no idea what it was going feel like post-Community and this sort of fell into my lap so quickly after we were canceled by NBC that I actually hadn’t had a lot of time to formulate a specific plan. But when it presented itself, it felt like a really good fortune. It’s fun because I try to be really well-behaved in real life, so I really got to act out through this character.”

FYI: Gillian is wearing a silver printed Thakoon cocktail dress. Natasha is wearing Olgana Paris shoes.
