Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge was recently coy about confirming her role in interview with NME. Scroll below to watch.
The writer, actress and director rose to great acclaim last year for writing and starring in Channel 4’s ‘Crashing’ and BBC’s ‘Fleabag’ – having previously starred in the likes of ‘Broadchurch’, ‘Man Up’, and ‘The Iron Lady’.
Hailing her as one of NME’s People Of The Year, we wrote: “When Fleabag debuted on BBC3 this summer it made thousands of young women across the country gawp in wonder and yell, ‘OMG, that’s me!’ at their laptop screens. Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag – a character based on a one-woman show that had impressed 2013 Edinburgh Festival crowds with its no-holds-barred depiction of female sexuality – was kind of a d**k.
“A self-centred, w**k-happy woman with limited drive, a failing small business and a family in ruins, her lifestyle tiptoed around the edges of urban hipsterdom, but also deep, dark loss. It might sound depressing, but its caustic humour and downright filthiness made it unmissable.”
