Phoebe Waller-Bridge Makes Appearance at 'No Time to Die' Red Carpet Premiere

The newest installment of the Bond film series, “No Time to Die,” had its red carpet premiere with many stars, including Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, Naomie Harris, Rami Malek, Billie Eilish, and Phoebe-Waller Bridge.

Phoebe-Waller Bridge was brought on to help polish the writing of the film back when it was first in production alongside director Cary Fukunaga and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns. James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, has been protective over Phoebe-Waller Bridge’s involvement with the franchise since she was brought on. Many people questioned her role in the writing room, but Daniel Craig shut any qualms down in an interview:

“[Phoebe-Waller Bridge is] one of the best English writers around. I said, ‘Can we get her on the film?’ That’s where I came from.”

Phoebe-Waller Bridge is no stranger to excellent writing. The acclaimed series created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, “Fleabag,” swept the comedy category of the 71st Emmy Awards, winning her first-ever Emmy for “Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.”

She describes her experience working on the film here:

“[I was asked to do] dialogue polishes and to offer things really,” Waller-Bridge explained. “It’s about just offering different alternatives. They did give me some scenes and then be like, can you write some alternatives for this or have another idea about where it could go in the middle or how it would end. And then I would just give them options and various scenes and then they would take what they want. But there was a lot of people writing — the director [Cary Fukunaga] was a writer on it as well. And there’d been a few writers before.”

You can watch “No Time to Die” in theaters on October 8th, 2021.
