Why Did “No Time To Die” Feel Like “Killing Eve”? One Person – Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Back in the summer of 2018 Sandra Oh was nominated for an Emmy for best lead actress in the hit BBC show ‘Killing Eve’.

The show would mark a turning point for its head writer, show runner, and producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge who had already started the highly acclaimed show ‘Fleabag’ in 2016. Between both shows 55 major awards have been won and both have been placed on the top 100 shows of the 21st century.

Waller-Bridge herself has garnered multiple awards for both her writing and her acting and has made major contributions to two of cinemas largest franchises Star Wars and James Bond.

In 2018 she voiced the character of L3-37 in the highly underrated ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’.

Did you know that the latest James Bond movie ‘No Time To Die’ has gone through multiple writers (at least 5), multiple directors (at least 2), and multiple release dates (we are currently on the fourth)?

Did you also know that Phoebe Waller-Bridge was called in to help with the final version?

We here at The Latch Key Kids were thrilled to see that Ms. Waller-Bridge got the screen credit she so richly earned on ‘No Time To Die’.

In so doing because she became the first credited female writer on a James Bond movie since Joanna Harwood who helped pen both ‘Dr. No’ and ‘From Russia With Love’ in 1961 & 1963 respectively?
