- TitleWriter, producer and actor
The career of Waller-Bridge, 35, may be the ultimate argument against the sophomore slump. The Fleabag creator returned in 2019 with a second season of the Amazon-BBC TV series based on her acclaimed one-woman play that was, somehow, even more lauded than its first. The wit and originality of that show and its titular heroine—and of Killing Eve, the BBC America series Waller-Bridge wrote—earned the three-time Emmy winner the job of punching up the now coronavirus-postponed James Bond film No Time to Die. Up next for the auteur? Reportedly, her own feature film.
