Who is Phoebe Dynevor's boyfriend?
Currently, it looks like Phoebe Dynevor is single.
The star previously dated actor Sean Teale and the pair were very public about their romance, often attending red carpet and public events together, as well as sharing updates on their social media.
Sean - who is known for his roles in Skins and Reign - is also a close friend of actor Luke Pasqualino, who co-starred with Phoebe in The Musketeers. It’s a small world!
Recently, she has been linked to her Bridgerton co-star Regé-Jean Page and while the two have not confirmed a romantic relationship online, Regé-Jean did make some comments about their chemistry in a recent interview the pair did with Access Hollywood.
"I think that everything you need to know is on camera," he said. "All of the sparks that flew came off of the beautiful scripts that we were handed and so I think that the sparky words, scripts and material are more than enough."
Phoebe also previously told Harper's Bazaar that the pair got close during filming.
"We had so much time to get to know each other. We did a lot of rehearsing. I think the thing that actually really helped the chemistry was all the dance rehearsals, because we just spent so much time with our choreographer, Jack Murphy, and loads of time in the studio—just me, Regé, and Jack sort of getting the moves right and dancing and dancing to this modern, fun music. And we just got time to play and sort of form a connection. I think that was so beneficial actually in getting the chemistry right," she told the publication.

Does Phoebe Dynevor come from an acting family?
It seems the Dynevor family are blessed with a talent for the arts, as Phoebe is the daughter of British actress Sally Dynevor, who is best known for her role as Sally Webster in the British soap opera Coronation Street since 1984. Phoebe's father, Tim Dynevor, is also a scriptwriter.
Phoebe comes from a tight-knit family and is super close to her parents and siblings. In an interview with Glamour UK, she said: "The Bridgerton family are a really, super-tight-knit family and I have the same thing at home. I'm really close to my parents and my family—they have shaped me every way they could; they've been such an amazing support system."
What has Phoebe Dynevor starred in?
The 25-year-old actress has appeared in a number of British shows including Waterloo Road (which her co-star Regé-Jean Page also starred in) where she played Siobhan Mailey at the age of just 14 - appearing in 20 episodes in total.
Since then, her other TV credits include Prisoners' Wives and Dickensian, alongside American comedy series Snatch and comedy-drama series Younger, with actress Hilary Duff.
Speaking to Town & Country, Phoebe admitted that the most challenging thing about her role in Bridgerton was the dancing.
"I was really nervous about the dancing, because I've always told myself that I’m not a dancer, so I started to believe it," she told the publication. "We had this incredible choreographer called Jack Murphy, and we had six weeks of rehearsals before filming began. It really helped the chemistry between Regé and me because we had to learn to dance together, and that very much informed our acting relationship.
"There were also a lot of scenes where we had dialogue during these dance routines, which looks easy, but it's quite difficult to pull off. Those scenes were the most nerve-racking, but also the most fulfilling."

Phoebe isn't afraid to call out the mistreatment of women in mainstream press. She often uses her social media platforms to champion issues she feels passionately about, including calling out the press when they target a powerful woman in an attempt to tear her down. Last year, she shared the below Instagram post with the caption: "Trying to wrap my head around the social urge to break apart vulnerable women in the public eye. They do not belong to you."
