Bridgerton and Fair Play’s Phoebe Dynevor: ‘It’s not a good time for actresses my age’

Her character weaves her way through sexual office politics, placating her co-workers, minimising herself and trying to progress her career all at once. “It felt like my story, and it felt like every woman I know’s story,” says Dynevor. “Whether it’s working in a very male-dominated environment or having a relationship with someone who’s threatened by you, all of those things that women deal with all the time. Did I draw from personal experience? Of course. Am I willing to go into them? Not really, but I drew on experiences I’ve had in the past.”
