Phoebe acknowledged to The Evening Standard that although she landed a fulfilling lead part in Netflix's psychological thriller Fair Play, she doesn't think her career has gone as planned. The actress said, “I have read some great scripts recently. And yeah, I probably shouldn’t be saying this, but there are still, like, not that many parts going.”

Delving further into the double standards of the industry for men and women, she added, “There is such a space for male actors… there are so many of them. But 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.”
