Bridgerton famed actress Phoebe Dynevor voiced her concerns over the lack of roles for the young women in Hollywood.

During her latest interview with The London Evening Standard, Dynevor explained how all the best screen roles are written for the older men and women, while younger actresses are still missing out on the best parts.

The Fair Play actress clarified that she was happy for older actresses, however, she just want to produce the kind of content which she thinks is still missing.

“There is still, like, not that many parts going. There is such a space for male actors… there are so many of them. And they’re all great," said the Bank of Dave actress.

She went on to explain, "They’re all very talented young men, and they do not stop working, and good for them. But you know, when I think about the girls my age… there’s way more room for them and there is still not enough room for us."

 “It’s a really good time for older women which is amazing and there’s a lot for these young men, but not a lot for the actresses that I know in my age bracket,” added Dynevor, who recently bagged BAFTAs nomination for Rising Star.

“I bumped into Regé [-Jean Page] on the red carpet the other day and we were both like, ‘But seriously what was that!?’ I’m still just coming down from it,” she said.
