Phoebe Waller-Bridge Explains Why She Didn't Want To Do A Second Season Of 'Fleabag'

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has a high fashion moment on the cover of the December issue of Vogue, available nationwide November 19th.

Here’s what the 34-year-old Killing Eve actress had to share with the mag:

On her inspirations: “I get asked who inspired me as writers, and I realized I’d always been slightly embarrassed to admit it, because it seems so obvious, but, like, the Greek plays! Sophocles, Euripides, Shakespeare—all the ones you think you can’t say because they’re great. I’m now owning that.”

On what she wants to do next: “I feel like I might scale up a bit. I’ll scale up in terms of gradually getting bigger with my themes and stuff, and I feel maybe I want to start thinking more politically, more globally. I don’t know, but I can feel something bubbling.”

On not wanting to do a second season of Fleabag: “It’s so hard because you change. You’re trying to write authentically all the time. You have to write that change, and coming into the second season, it was like, you have to, you know, inverted commas, ‘give the people what they want.’”
