"I don't think you can be a good actor and want to please, because so much about performing and acting is surprising people."

Phoebe Mary Waller-Bridge (born 14 July 1985 in London, England) is a BAFTA-winning English actress and writer. She created and starred in Crashing and Fleabag and adapted Luke Jennings' Codename Villanelle into the highly-acclaimed series Killing Eve. Her television career also includes a regular role in the sitcom The Cafe and a supporting turn in the second series of Broadchurch.note 

Waller-Bridge's film career consisted mainly of historical dramas such as Albert Nobbs, The Iron Lady and Goodbye Christopher Robin. However, that changed when she was cast as the voice of the droid L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story. She also helped to do some rewrites on the script for the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die. This makes Waller-Bridge the first female screenwriter credited with writing a Bond film since Johanna Harwood was credited for the story of From Russia with Love all the way back in 1963.note
