Bridgerton is Netflix’s newest period piece that everyone is currently obsessed with, according to Twitter. In addition to the beautiful 19th century London aesthetic, what makes it truly special is its social commentaries on race, gender, and socioeconomic positions. According to NPR, “Bridgerton is an adaptation of mostly the first book in a successful series of eight Regency romance novels by Julia Quinn. Taking place in the early part of the nineteenth century, the books follow the eight siblings in the Bridgerton family, four boys and four girls, as they seek the loves of their lives.”
Actress Phoebe Dynevor plays eldest daughter Daphne Bridgerton, and is just as much of a fan of the series as we are. In an interview with Town & Country, Dynevor said that while she loves a traditional period piece and grew up watching them, she believes that what makes Bridgerton so special are the ways in which it isn’t conventional. She said that when she read the script, she could instantly tell that it was unlike any period piece she had seen before. “I think that’s why you want to engage with it, because it’s not covering anything up,” she said.
We love Dynevor and her passion for the series. And if you’re anything like us, you’ve been obsessively wondering where you might have seen the breakout star before. Keep reading to find out!
You might recognize Dynevor from any of these series
Dynevor has a pretty limited filmography at only 25 years old. She has starred in a few lesser known series, her debut work being Siobhan Mailey in the fifth season of Waterloo Road from 2009-2010. Over the next few years, she played a mix of recurring and guest roles in series such as Monroe, Prisoners’ Wives, The Village, and The Musketeers (via PopBuzz).
A big moment in Phoebe Dynevor’s career happened in 2017 when she made her debut on American television with Snatch, a comedy-drama following the lives of a group of hustlers navigating the world of organized crime. She played Lottie Mott and appeared alongside Rupert Grint, Luke Pasqualino, and Lucien Laviscount (via IMDb). However, if this isn’t where you recognize Dynevor from, it could instead be from her most recent work leading up to Bridgerton, a series called Younger by the producer of Sex and the City. While she wasn’t the central star in this series, she did have a recurring role (2017-19) in which she played Clare, the Irish bartender and Google employee (via Cosmopolitan).
