Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the actress bringing L3-37 to life in Solo: A Star Wars Story. She has also appeared in the TV series Fleabag, Crashing, and Broadchurch. Waller-Bridge wrote and produced Crashing and wrote several episodes of Fleabag while also serving as that show’s Executive Producer (Fleabag is an adaptation of a one-woman play Waller-Bridge created). But that’s not all you should know about Phoebe. She created the new series Killing Eve that recently premiered to rave reviews and HBO just announced that they picked up another series Waller-Bridge helped create, Run.
So, as you can see, Phoebe Waller-Bridge is (to steal a line from Finn) “kind of a big deal”. And not just because she gets to hang out with Lando in the Millenium Falcon in a galaxy far, far away. But that is extremely cool.
Here she is talking to TIME late last year.
