Phoebe has appeared in a number of British shows including Waterloo Road and Prisoners' Wives, and is the daughter of Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor.
Here's your need-to-know on her.
Phoebe, 25, is an actress from Manchester. She is the daughter of Sally Dynevor, known for playing Sally Webster in Coronation Street since 1984.

Phoebe plays Daphne Bridgerton, one of the central roles of the first season.
Speaking to Heart.co.uk about her character, Phoebe said: "When you first meet Daphne she’s this young girl about to make her debut onto the marriage mart. And she’s prepared her whole life for this moment.
"She thinks she’s going to meet the love of her love and live happily ever after, and in her head it’s all one big fairytale, and then quickly obviously she learns that that’s not really the case and not how life works.
"And we see how little she knows about the world, how mollycoddled she’s been, and we go on this journey with her to discover sexuality and adulthood. It’s a coming of age story."
She is! You can follow her on Instagram @phoebedynevor.
