From Edinburgh's edge to Hollywood's toast



Phoebe Wolder-Bridge is perhaps the most sought-after star on television after the stunning night of Emmy Awards.

Schlebag, the sitcom that created and starred in the stars, won a total of six awards, including Best Comedy Actress for Woller-Bridge and All Outstanding Comedy.

Despite much fanfare, Amazon has just announced that it has signed a multimillion-pound actress, writer and producer.

Born in London, Wohler-Bridge graduated from the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts before launching his career in 2009 with a performance at Roaring Trade.

She has starred in TV roles in the comedy series Cafe and the crime drama Broadcaster, as well as in parts of the film including Albert Nobbes and The Iron Lady.

However, Waller Bridge is best known for creating and starring in Schlebag.

Schlebag began as a one-off show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, featuring Walther Bridge as an angry and confused young woman struggling to navigate life in London.

In part of what was supposed to happen, the production won the Fringe First Award.

The success of the festival drew the attention of the BBC, which commissioned a six-part series for the BBC Three.

Schlebag's television adaptation, also starring future Oscar winners Olivia Coleman, Sian Clifford and Brett Gelman, arrived in 2016 with critical acclaim and soon reached a wider audience of BBC Two, with distribution distribution in the United States.

The Walder-Bridge performance earned Bafta the best female comedy performance, but the show was frozen in Emmy.

Following the success of Schlebag's first season, Wolder-Bridge turned his attention to adaptation of the villainel's Romanian series Luke Lucernings for the small screen.

The killing of Eve arrived in April 2018, starring Sandra O, an MI5 agent on the tail of comedian psychopath killer Comer Villanelli.

The show was another huge success, cementing Waller-Bridge's reputation as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents.

Expectations ahead of Fleabag's second season were now high in the sky, though his creator said he came "very close" to not bring him back.

The second series arrived in April this year, for an almost unprecedented recognition.

Viewers were again mesmerized by the fourth titular comic strip sideways, while her inimitable sexual appetite continued without straining.

On the review website, Rotten Tomatoes, Flebag's return has a 100% rating.

On Sunday, Woller-Bridge was Hollywood's toast after enjoying a stunning night at Emmy, the biggest night on American television.

She has won three awards: Leading Actress in Comedy, Outstanding Writing in Comedy, and Outstanding Comedy Series.

The second was a shock victory over previous winners Vep and Incredible Ms Michael.

On Tuesday, Amazon announced it had tied up Waller-Bridge with an exclusive deal, with reports in the US suggesting it is worth about $ 20m (£ 16m) a year over three years.

Wolder-Bridge also completed its script for the upcoming James Bond film No Time To Die, after being suggested by producers of Bond actor Daniel Craig.
