A new image of Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor in her first big movie role after the success of the Netflix hit has been released.

After her role as debutante Daphne Bridgerton in the regency-era drama - which begins filming this spring - Phoebes has taken a lead role in new Sky movie The Colour Room.

Phoebe will play artist Clarice Cliff, who became hugely famous a century ago for her ceramic art. She worked in Stoke-on-Trent in the 1920s, and blazed a trail in the Art Deco world, and Sky have released a new image of Phoebe in character as Clarice.

She'll star alongside Downton Abbey's Matthew Goode, who'll be playing a factory owner that her character is trying to impress.

The film will be released in cinemas and on Sky Cinema later this year. Here's what it's about:

"The Colour Room follows the journey of a determined, working class woman, Clarice Cliff, as she breaks the glass ceiling and revolutionises the workplace in the 20th century. Clarice Cliff (Dynevor) is a vivacious young factory worker in the industrial British midlands of the 1920s.

"Bursting at the seams with ideas for colours and shapes, Clarice takes more and more dangerous risks – but she manages to stay one step ahead of the workhouse and impress the eccentric factory owner Colley Shorter (Goode) on the way with her talent and innovation.

"Apprenticed to renowned Art Designer Fred Ridgeway (Morrissey) and with support from Colley and other women in the factory, Clarice fights her way through to design the unprecedented Art Deco ‘Bizarre’ range.

"In the middle of the Great Depression, she ensures the factory’s survival and her future as one of the greatest Art Deco designers and a household name.”"
