If you’ve never heard of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, that will change. The Fleabag star just took her first Emmy home on September 22, and the show received much recognition at the award show. But who is Waller-Bridge and what is the capacity of the actress?
‘Fleabag’ received four Emmy nominations and won two Emmys on September 22
The Emmys were Fleabag’s time to shine. The show was nominated for four Emmy prizes at the 2019 show and won two wins: Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress – Comedy Series (the prize went to Waller-Bridge). Waller-Bridge also won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Writer – Comedy Series. Fleabag is part of the streaming service from Amazon and no one would have thought the controversial recognition it would get if viewers were to get hold of it. The show plays Waller-Bridge as Fleabag, a comic protagonist who tries to navigate life in London. The show originally premiered in 2016 and the last episode was broadcast in April 2019.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has worked as a writer and producer on several television series
Waller-Bridge has had a successful career in the entertainment industry, although acting is only part of it. She has also written and produced a lot of content; she is the writer and producer of Fleabag, who started as a play with the same name. But before Fleabag, Waller-Bridge wrote and produced the thrilling series Killing Eve, which premiered on BBC America in April 2018. She also wrote the HBO series Run, which was recently picked up by the network and has not yet premiered. In the field of acting, Waller-Bridge played the leading role in the series The Café and Broadchurch, as well as films The Iron Lady and Goodbye Christopher Robin.
Waller-Bridge definitely isn’t done after ‘Fleabag’
Fleabag caught on in the United States and has brought Waller-Bridge much recognition on this side of the Atlantic. But she has had a career full of highlights, including the other series and films in which she has written, produced and played. But Fleabag is definitely not the end for her. As mentioned before, a show from her just got picked up by HBO, and now that she has really put herself on the map, it is safe to say that we will see much more of her in the US than ever before. Although Fleabag concluded after two seasons, it was not because of a lack of interest or talent.
The actress is worth about $3 million today
Waller-Bridge has made a name for itself in the United Kingdom and now she does the same in North America. Today, the actress and producer is estimated to be worth $ 3 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Although she focuses a lot of energy on her career, Waller-Bridge also has a personal life, just like everyone else. She married Irish filmmaker Conor Woodman in 2014, but the marriage did not last long and the two divorced in 2018. She recently started dating playwright Martin McDonaugh. Waller-Bridge has no children and lives in Kensal Rise, London. Hopefully she appears on many more awards shows on the road.
