Viewers soon learn that the couple are ‘breaking company policy’ with their relationship as they battle to hide it from their co-workers.
A sinister twist sees Emily and Luke turn on each other as Luke grabs a knife from the kitchen before blood drips over the floor.
Speaking in a recent interview with ELLE UK Phoebe admitted her years in the entertainment industry were all the preparation she needed to understand how it might be for a woman working at a hedge fund firm.
‘I felt like I knew enough about working in a very male-dominated environment,’ Phoebe revealed.
‘There is an extra pressure being a woman in this industry, but I also think that it motivates me to work on stuff like Fair Play and to feel like, Oh, I can have a say at moving the needle—a very tiny, tiny say, but we use those things to our advantage if we can.’
Netflix’s full synopsis for the Chloe Domont directed production states: ‘When a coveted promotion at a cutthroat financial firm arises, once supportive exchanges between lovers Emily (Phoebe Dynevor) and Luke (Alden Ehrenreich) begin to sour into something more sinister.
‘As the power dynamics irrevocably shift in their relationship, the couple must face the true price of success and the unnerving limits of ambition.’
However, Fair Play will not be Phoebe’s first experience when it comes to filming raunchy scenes for TV.

Phoebe recently opened up about her raunchy scenes for Bridgerton.
She explained: ‘In a lot of the Regency stuff we’ve seen in the past, we see a very composed woman.’
‘There’s not much sexuality there. It’s very much the male gaze. I wanted to make [Daphne] feel modern and have sexual desires, as women do, and have a lot going on that isn’t surface level.’ She concluded.
The raunchy Regency series has been a smash-hit for Netflix ever since the first season dropped in late 2020, and fans are more than ready to return to the world of high society gossip, scandal and the raunchiest of romances.
Fair Play will be released September 29 in select theaters and premiere globally October 6 on Netflix.
