Phoebe Dynevor dazzles portraying iconic ceramicist Clarice Cliff in the trailer for The Colour Room

Phoebe Dynevor put on a dazzling performance as Clarice Cliff in the official trailer for her new film The Colour Room. 

The actress, 26, who shot to fame last year after starring in Netflix’s Bridgerton, shone in her latest role as the iconic ceramist, who broke the glass ceiling and revolutionised the workplace in the 20th century.

Phoebe looked a far cry from her regency-era Bridgerton character Daphne as she was also seen in a new image for the film alongside Matthew Goode, ditching the glam in favour of a more humble attire as she brought to life working class factory worker Clarice in the Sky Cinema film.

The trailer sees Phoebe as Clarice get excited as she begins working in a ceramics factory, only to be put down by a male worker who snarkily tells her: ‘I hope you’re trained in tea making.’

Not put off my the remark, Clarice was later seen telling a co-worker: ‘I have ideas’, only to be discouraged once again as he pal replied: ‘how many women modelers do you see?’

Her hard work appeared to be paying off as Clarice was later informed by her boss Colley Shorter (played by Matthew Goode): ‘You’ve got some talent.’

The encouragement further spurned Clarice on as she later said in the clip: ‘I say we stop playing it safe… thicker strokes and colour!’ 

While in another at the film, she’s told by a gentleman: ‘The modern woman does not want tat’, only for her to defiantly reply: ‘The modern woman is forward looking, not backward looking!’

Earlier this year, Phoebe showed off her newly-darkened mane in a curly cropped style, and cut a pale pensive figure as a first look still of the film was revealed.

A far cry from the silky baroque dresses of Regency Era London, she donned a black coat and a coloured scarf, hung loosely around her neck as she stood in a misty street – a cart in the background, and phesants hanging from a hook.

Talented: Her hard work appeared to be paying off as Clarice was later informed by her boss Colley Shorter (played by Matthew Goode): ‘You’ve got some talent.’

Clarice is a vivacious young factory worker in the industrial British midlands of the 1920s. 

Her creativity and ambition drives her to move factory to factory, despite the financial impact on the household she shares with her widowed mother Ann (Kerry Fox) and youngest sister Dot (Darci Shaw).

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 (Matthew Goode) on the way with her talent and innovation.
