Bridgerton star once starred in Waterloo Road

Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor once starred in Waterloo Road and she looked completely different.

Phoebe landed her first big TV role in the BBC drama, which she starred in between 2009 and 2010.

The 25-year-old, who plays Daphne Bridgeton in the Netflix hit, began her career as Siobhan Mailey in Waterloo Road.

She played a teenage schoolgirl alongside her former co-star Jenna Coleman, who currently plays Marie-Andree Leclerc in new BBC drama The Serpent.

Phoebe is also the daughter of Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Webster.

The actresses’ other big TV roles include Doctor Who and Emmerdale.


Phoebe’s on-screen lover in Bridgerton Regé-Jean Page also starred in Waterloo Road as Guy Braxton.

Regé-Jean joined the cast of Waterloo Road in its 10th and final series, which ran from October 2014 until March 2015.

The actor played newcomer Guy, a newly qualified graphics and product design teacher who joined the staff of the comprehensive school in Greenock, Scotland.

The fact the pair both starred in Waterloo Road left Bridgerton fans stumped as one tweeted: ‘Seeing Phoebe Dynevor go from Waterloo Road to Bridgerton is so cool.’

While another commented: ‘Also it’s so funny to me that Phoebe’s mum is Sally from corrie. All British actors lead back to soaps somehow. AND Phoebe was in waterloo road!!! A staple of British TV as a teen!!!’

One added: ‘AS IF Phoebe Dynevor (lady Bridgeton) was in Waterloo Road omg whattttt I can’t believe it.’

We can’t believe it either.

Bridgerton is available to watch on Netflix and Waterloo Road is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
