“Oh btw Paul and I did this for Halloween,” Edgar-Jones wrote on her Instagram Story, captioning a photo that sees her dressed up as Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s unnamed character.
The actor is wearing the same jumpsuit Waller-Bridge wears at the start of the second season of the BBC series, and carrying a toy hamster as the animal played a major part in the show’s first season.
Mescal is dressed up as a priest, paying homage to Andrew Scott’s character in season two who Waller-Bridge only refers to as the “Hot Priest” and is romantically involved with.

The actor said he was out with his friends when they ran into a hen party and one woman told him: “I didn’t think the show was any good but I saw your willy and I have a photo!”
“I remember that was the first time that I was really angry,” Mescal said. “I was like, ‘That’s fucking rude!’ It’s embarrassing for you, it’s embarrassing for me, it’s embarrassing for my friends and now I have to say no to you.”
The actor went on to say that “luckily” interactions like that were an “anomaly” and that he’s asked for photos “relatively infrequently”.
