As a lead in Netflix’s period drama, Phoebe Dynevor was thrust into the limelight after Bridgerton became a hit and gained millions of fans across the world. Ahead of the show’s season two release, the actress has just landed a huge new role away from the streaming platform.
Stepping away from her character Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor), the actress is set to star in the UK remake of a French comedy called Call My Agent.
The original series followed the employees from a successful Parisian talent agency who attempt to keep all their clients happy after the founder’s sudden and unexpected death.
The employees were forced to put all hands on deck and defend the business, despite the fact it occasionally gets in the way of their personal lives, often creating conflicts.
Deadline reported that the drama/ comedy remake will maintain the same essence of the original series.
Also appearing on screen alongside Phoebe is Chelsey Crisp,
Jack Davenport, Lydia Leonard, Maggie Steed and Prasanna Puwanarajah.
Phoebe isn’t the only series regular joining the show, fans of ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat would recognise Chelsey as Honey, the character she played in the comedy series.
Other actors including Hiftu Quasem, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Rebecca Humphries, Harry Trevaldwyn will be gracing the screens.
Hopefully, fans can look forward to Chelsey bringing more of her comedic skills to Call My Agent.
The British remake will air at the Sundance Film Festival before hitting the viewers’ big screen.
With Amazon acquiring the rights to the UK version and the AMC Network streaming service obtaining the US version, this could mean fans won’t have to wait long until Call My Agent lands in their laps.
More actors confirmed to star in the series are Tim McInnerny, Natasha Little, Edward Bluemel, Eleonore Arnaud and Jim Broadbent.
Appearing throughout the series in cameo roles are Dominic West, Jessica Oyelowo and David Oyelowo, Kelly Macdonald, Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Williams.

This role away from Bridgerton will be a huge step for Phoebe as the periodic drama is set in 1813.
Although not much has been revealed about the setting by looking at the original French series, it appeared as though the storyline was based in more recent times.
Phoebe had previously stepped away from the Netflix series and starred in a Sky thriller called The Colour Room.
Where she played a much more sinister character, a far cry from her smart and dutiful character Daphne.
After appearing at Sundance, the series Call My Agent will make its way to America where it will also feature on Sundance in 2022 after it premieres in the UK.
It is yet to be revealed which character Phoebe will be portraying and what her storyline will be.
However, express.co.uk will be updated with new information about the new series when more news is unveiled.
