IIn addition to the fact that we are an award-winning author, actress, and the woman that has made Andrew Scott a national obsession, we can now complement Phoebe Waller-Bridge's growing list of successes with a mentor.
Emma Corrin, the unknown actress who got one of the biggest roles on television when she was cast in the fourth season of as a young Princess Diana The crownrevealed how the BAFTA winner gave her some "amazing" advice over coffee four years ago, when Waller-Bridge wanted to start writing fleabag for television, and Corrin was "figuring out how the hell to become an actress".
"She has given me some amazing advice that I have remembered – taking risks and following your guts, creating your own material and going your own way," Corrin wrote in an Instagram post after the BAFTA TV Awards Sunday evening.
"LITTLE, WE KNOWN THAT FOUR YEARS LATER, WE WILL BRING THEM TO THE @Bafta GUYS IF YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT HAPPENS [sic], "
Taking a leaf out of Waller-Bridge's book has clearly paid off for Corrin, who is well on her way to becoming a household name when she comes to screens as Diana Spencer in Netflix's acclaimed series.
Meanwhile, Waller-Bridge saw her dark-comic spy thriller Kill Eve Sweep the board at the ceremony on Sunday evening. Her lead actress Jodie Comer was not only named Best Drama Series, but she also won the Best Actress Award for her portrayals of high-fashion assassin Villanelle and Fiona Shaw, who also played in the second series of Waller Bridge fleabag, took Best Supporting Actress for her efforts as MI6 boss Carolyn Martens.
"She's a queen," Corrin said in her Instagram post about Waller Bridge. No arguments here.
