Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s screenwriting skills have been taken to a “whole other level” working on the new James Bond film.

The Fleabag star honed her craft on her hit comedy series and the spy drama Killing Eve, gaining a reputation for creating fleshed out, funny, and forthright female characters that won her a job on the new 007 flick No Time to Die.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James, she remained tight-lipped about the plot of the new film, but revealed it had shown her new ways of bringing stories to the screen.

“What can I say? Oh my God, I literally can’t say anything,” she says. “I’ve been off it for a while. It was just the most incredible experience, being on those sets and with that cast. It’s just a whole other level of storytelling.”

Phoebe went on to joke that she would have to “walk around this mysterious Bond bush” to avoid discussing the movie further but quipped that she’d spoil the ending.

The star is now working on a new film project with her sister Isobel, which she plans to make her directorial debut.

Describing working on the film at a recent event in London she said: “I am totally obsessed. I have never been so excited about writing anything.”

Details of the project are scarce so far, but the writer and comedian did drop some hints about her plans to direct as well as write the movie in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“The day I wrapped Fleabag, I went to bed thinking, ‘I’m never going to have another idea again. Oh s—,’” she explained. “I woke up with the vision of this film.”

No Time to Die hits cinemas in April.
