What is ‘Fleabag’ Star Phoebe Waller Bridge’s Net Worth?
If you haven’t heard of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, that is about to change. The Fleabag star just took home her first Emmy on September 22, and the show received plenty of recognition at the awards show. But who is Waller-Bridge, and what is the actress’ net worth?
‘Fleabag’ received four Emmy nominations and won two Emmys on September 22
The Emmy’s were Fleabag’s time to shine. The show was nominated for four Emmy awards at the 2019 awards show, and it took home two wins: Outstanding Comedy Series, and Outstanding Lead Actress — Comedy Series (the award went to Waller-Bridge). Waller-Bridge also won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Writer — Comedy Series. Fleabag is part of Amazon’s streaming service, and nobody likely imagined the high-profile recognition it would receive once viewers got their hands on it. The show stars Waller-Bridge as Fleabag, a comedic main character who tries to navigate life in London. The show originally premiered in 2016, and its final episode aired in April 2019.
Waller-Bridge has worked as a writer and producer on several television series
Waller-Bridge has had a successful career in the entertainment industry, though acting is only a part of it. She also has written and produced plenty of content; she’s the writer and producer of Fleabag, which started out as a play by the same name. But before Fleabag, Waller-Bridge actually wrote and produced the thriller series Killing Eve, which premiered in April 2018 on BBC America. She also wrote the HBO series Run, which was recently picked up by the network and hasn’t premiered yet. In terms of acting, Waller-Bridge has starred in the series The Café and Broadchurch, as well as movies The Iron Lady and Goodbye Christopher Robin.
Waller-Bridge definitely isn’t done after ‘Fleabag’
Fleabag caught on in the United States and has brought Waller-Bridge a lot of recognition on this side of the Atlantic Ocean. But she’s had a career full of highs, including the other series and films she’s written, produced, and starred in. But Fleabag definitely isn’t the end for her. As previously stated, a show of hers was just picked up by HBO, and now that she’s truly put herself on the map, it’s safe to say we will be seeing a lot more of her in the U.S. than ever before. Though Fleabag concluded after only two seasons, it wasn’t because of a lack of interest or talent.
The actress is worth about $3 million today
Waller-Bridge has made quite a name for herself over in the United Kingdom, and now, she’s doing the same in North America. Today, the actress and producer is worth an estimated $3 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Though she focuses a lot of energy on her career, Waller-Bridge also has a personal life, just like anyone else. She married Irish filmmaker Conor Woodman in 2014, though the marriage didn’t last and the two divorced in 2018. She recently began dating playwright Martin McDonaugh. Waller-Bridge does not have any children and resides in Kensal Rise, London. Hopefully she’ll be appearing at many more awards shows down the road.
