Phoebe Waller-Bridge dedicates win to Andrew Scott


Phoebe Waller-Bridge dedicated her Golden Globe Award win to Andrew Scott.

The 34-year-old actress picked up Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Series for her titular role in 'Fleabag' at Sunday's (05.01.20) ceremony but insisted the second season of the show wouldn't have been such a success if it wasn't for the effortless chemistry she had with her co-star.

Speaking on stage at the Beverly Hilton hotel, she said: "Oh my God. Thank you so much to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this, it's really heavy and cool.

"This really comes down to Andrew Scott really because that man, there was a lot of talk about the chemistry between us in the show but he could have chemistry with a pebble and Id loved being Andrew's pebble in this, thanks for bringing so much fire to this season."

Phoebe - who beat Christina Applegate ('Dead to Me'), Rachel Brosnahan ('The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'), Kirsten Dunst ('On Becoming a God in Central Florida'), and Natasha Lyonne ('Russian Doll') to take the award - went on to thank those who worked behind the camera on the programme.

She continued: "Harry Bradbeer, my amazing director, I'm like 'That's not how it's meant to be done'. He's like, do it my way and it really annoys me because I'm the writer.

"A very special thank you to our Director of Photography, Tony Miller, who made the show look like a movie with small budget, he was always the camera operator too who I looked down at.

Thank you so much to my agent and Amazon and the BBC, sincerely, for picking up the scrap of a show, this means the world to me."
