“I am always telling her if you want to survive in this business, you have to have ­discipline and set aside days and nights to ­learn lines.”

What is Bridgerton on Netflix?

Phoebe plays Daphne Bridgerton, one of eight siblings caught up in a world of Georgian wealth, lust and betrayal.

But far from the usual regency drama, this comes from the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.

Shonda Rhimes has created a world where diversity is the norm rather than the exception.
