Best known for her role as Daphne Bridgerton in the first two seasons of Netflix’s hit Regency drama, Dynevor has since made a name for herself on the big screen.

In 2021, she played real-life artist Clarice Cliff in The Color Room, alongside Downtown Abbey’s Matthew Goode and The Walking Dead’s David Morrissey.

Dynevor returned to Netflix last year in Chloe Domont’s thriller Fair Play, which followed a thriving New York couple whose relationship begins to unravel when a coveted position at their ruthless financial firm opens up.

The film received rave reviews after premiering at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, with Dynevor receiving a BAFTA Rising Star nomination at this year’s awards for her performance.

The actor was last seen in Jack Cooper Stimpson’s short film More Flames, which aims to flip the script on the current climate and nature crisis. The comedy-satire also stars The Last of Us’ Bella Ramsey and Aladdin’s Amar Chadha-Patel.

In a recent interview with The Standard, Dynevor spoke about the current lack of film and TV roles for women her age and how she plans to tackle the imbalance in the industry.

“Eventually I want to produce. I would like to create the material that I think is missing. I don’t know when that will be, but it’s a dream of mine,” she said.

Bridgerton season 1, 2 and 3 part 1 are now streaming on Netflix, along with Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. Bridgerton season 3 part 2 premieres on June 13.
