Phoebe Waller-Bridge talks No Time to Die with BBC

Phoebe Waller-Bridge talks about No Time to Die and Fleabag in a BBC interview.

Writer of the moment Phoebe Waller-Bridge told the BBC that she was brought in because the filmmakers “were just looking for tweaks across a few of the characters and a few of the storylines”.

In the interview she insists she was not brought in to “change the culture” of the films, which she says was already happening under Barbara Broccoli. Instead, she says she was brought in specifically to help with some scenes and write dialogue.

One interesting thing from the interview. While Daniel Craig has insisted that it was his idea to bring her in, Waller-Bridge says it was actually Barbara Broccoli:

We met for coffee and then a few months later we met again. And then I met the director Cary Joji Fukunaga and then I met Daniel after that. But I know Daniel and Barbara had been talking about it for while.

She does say that she spent time in New York with Daniel Craig discussing the script and has spent a lot of time on set with cast and crew.
