'Insecure's Yvonne Orji Reveals a Final Scene From the Series Was Off-Script (Spoiler)

Those tears weren’t make-believe.

The Insecure finale has left fans emotional, and Yvonne Orji‘s recent revelation will only add to that. The actor, who portrayed Molly Carter on the series, disclosed that the last scene between her and Issa Rae‘s character, Issa Dee, was totally improvised.

Editor’s Note: This article contains spoilers for Insecure.

“This scene in the bathroom was the final scene I shot as Molly,” she tweeted. “During one of the takes, [showrunner Prentice Penny] told me to go off-script and thank @IssaRae for how she changed my life. We were crying for real, FOR REAL.”

Penny also shared his thoughts on the heartfelt moment. “I love this scene. That was really my advice,” he tweeted. “We had shot @YvonneOrji‘s side, and I wanted Issa to be surprised by something. So I told Yvonne to thank her as Yvonne not Molly. Then Yvonne said, ‘Say less,’ and Issa was all tears. We ALL were!!”

“The real love story is Issa and Molly,” Penny added in another tweet. “Black women being dope as f–k and thriving in the face of anything is what we are really watching.”

Check out Orji and Penny’s tweets as well as a clip of the emotional scene below. Insecure is streaming on HBO Max.
