Phoebe Dynevor got her breakthrough in the hit Netflix series Bridgerton, where she played Daphne Basset, the Duchess of Hastings.

Luckily for her, she got the script of Bridgerton and was ultimately selected for the female lead of the show.

The executive producer of the show Betsy Beers talked to Elle about how Dynevor was the perfect person to play Daphne, saying

“Finding the right Daphne was very difficult. She goes from being a woman who has been bred and trained to go into the marriage market, to a woman who discovers what she really wants and who she really is. And we saw it immediately with Phoebe. She had this incredible ability to both embody the rigid rules of Regency-era England and also transform into a heroine we could all identify with. Phoebe wants to work on things like that, where she makes a point and where she is able to say something. She’s able to create roles in which there is a possibility for agency.”

The role revitalized Dynevor’s career and put her on the map of the rising talents of the industry. The show made her a household name and people have shown their enormous love and support to her works and have made them look forward to her future acting endeavors.

She completely disrupts the movie It’s fun to be the disrupter.” Anniversary was one of those scripts—I felt the same way about Fair Play—where the minute I read it, I was like, ‘I have to be part of this.’ People need to see this and the message it’s sharing.”
