According to the star, she always dreamed of a comedic actress career and loved to make her classmates laugh, but her inborn shyness caused her a lot of trouble. And just to get rid of her shyness, Phoebe began to attend acting classes. After graduation from the boarding school, she studied at West End College, and then became a student at the famous Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Early career

In 2009, the young actress first appeared on TV screens in episodes of the TV series How Not to Live Your Live and Doctors.

Best works

The character of the nameless owner of a tiny snack bar, who was unsuccessfully trying to hide her vulnerability, looking like a strong and independent woman, glorified the name of the young Englishwoman to the whole world. Despite the abundance of specific jokes and deliberately grossly added sexual scenes, the subtle and ironic series of 2016 Fleabag became Phoebe’s visiting card, and she not only played the lead role in it, but was also the script writer and the director.

Phoebe’s sister, Isobel wrote music for the series. The project also starred Olivia Colman as the despotic stepmother of the Phoebe’s character, Bill Paterson, who played as her meek father, Andrew Scott, who suddenly appeared in front of the viewers as an attractive priest, as well as Kristin Scott Thomas, who played the part of a luxurious and haughty business woman.

The series was nominated for BAFTA film award and received numerous prestigious awards, without exaggeration bringing world fame to its creator.

In the series Crashing, Phoebe played as the poor-balanced girlfriend of the main character, performed by Damien Molony. Phoebe’s unique writing style (namely, she wrote the script for the series, and in less than a year) interested Netflix producers.

Phoebe’s next success was the ironic detective and drama series Killing Eve, which again proved her fame as a brilliant screenwriter and talented director. In this grandiose project, the leading roles were played by Sandra Oh and young star Jodie Comer, who became popular after the release of the television miniseries Thirteen.

The confrontation between the police detective and the psychopath killer engrossed the attention of the viewers, gradually turning into a kaleidoscope of conspiracy theories and all kinds of references to Alfred Hitchcock and Stephen King creative works, slightly highlighted by the spicy mutual attraction of the characters. As noted by even the most unfriendly film critics, there is not a single weak side in this series, which is mainly Phoebe’s merit.
