Phoebe Waller-Bridge made £7 million in just one year.
The ‘Fleabag’ creator picked up the huge sum between March 2019 and March 2020 after being hired to work on the ‘No Time To Die’ Bond screenplay.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “This really is a landmark moment for her which makes her one of the world’s most sought after talents in TV and movies.
“Phoebe’s £7million earnings are a reflection of just how far she’s come over the past five years, and a sign of her huge potential to earn tens of millions in the future.
“TV and film producers have been scrambling to sign her up, now they’ll have to come up with even more lucrative deals.”
Meanwhile, last year Phoebe, 35, was named as one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World for 2020 and Taylor Swift paid tribute to her in the magazine.
Taylor wrote: “Sometimes all the puzzle pieces fall into place at the perfect time. A combination of razor-sharp instincts, killer wit and genuine care for the people she works with proved to be a winning hand. She is the executive producer and was a showrunner of the thrilling hit show ‘Killing Eve’. Her one-woman play ‘Fleabag’ was adapted into a show that turned her into everyone’s favorite self-sabotaging maker of mischief. (Phoebe has a habit of creating complex female anti¬heroes in a way that seemed previously reserved for male characters.) And she co-wrote the screenplay for the new Bond film.
“It’s magical to see that all the rehearsals, baby steps, false starts and dead ends can lead to an extremely driven and unfathomably talented woman unwinding in a lounge chair surrounded by her winnings.
“Phoebe Waller-Bridge and all that she has achieved is, indeed, a big mood.”
