"My mother-in-law Shirley said to me: "You mustn’t dissuade her. Actors are the most wonderful people in the world and the most fun."

"I thought: 'She’s absolutely right', and even if it’s very difficult she’s going to have a great time. I was probably more nervous watching her in something than I’d ever been for me, but she’s doing OK."

Phoebe kicked off her acting career on Waterloo Road at the age of 14 and has been on screen ever since.

She has working consistently across film and TV ever since with notable credits including Dickensian, the TV adaption of Snatch and US drama Younger.
