Phoebe Waller-Bridge has revealed she’d been dreaming about writing a Bond film months before she was asked to work on No Time to Die.

The Fleabag star was interviewed by Chris Evans on his Virgin Radio breakfast show where she explained she’d been thinking about the opportunity when producer Barbara Broccoli asked to meet her for a coffee.

“I was in the edit for Fleabag,” she said. “It was an afternoon, and I had the call that Barbara wanted to meet me. The strangest thing is, is that I’d really… I had been sort of dreaming about the idea of it only a few months beforehand. I was like, ‘Oh, wouldn’t it be cool to be involved in a Bond film’ to sort of just put that there in the ether. And then it just came around.”

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Waller-Bridge also elaborated on the process of sprucing up the screenplay after it had been completed.

“[I was asked to do] dialogue polishes and to offer things really,” she said, adding: “It’s about just offering different alternatives.”

She continued: “They did give me some scenes and then be like, can you write some alternatives for this or have another idea about where it could go in the middle or how it would end. And then I would just give them options and various scenes and then they would take what they want. But there was a lot people writing – the director [Cary Fukunaga] was a writer on it as well. And there’d been a few writers before.

“You know, Daniel [Craig] is really, really involved from the beginning. [I had] so many great conversations with him about it, constantly in touch with him about it. So it’s a big sort of melting pot of everybody’s ideas the whole time.

No Time to Die will be released in cinemas on 1 April
