Andrew’s character The Priest was introduced in the second series of the show after he was brought in to officiate her father and his second wife’s wedding, and forbidden sparks immediately flew between him and Fleabag.
The sequel series ended with Fleabag and the Sexy Priest going their separate ways during a tearful goodbye at a bus stop, however it seems their on-screen experience as resulted in a firm friendship between the pair.
Andrew previously revealed during an interview with the Guardian that he was so ‘grateful’ to Phoebe for casting him in the role as the astonishingly attractive Sexy Priest.
The actor said it was ‘uncharted territory’ for him, as he has never been given the opportunity to play the heartthrob in a role, but admitted he likes not being defined by his sexuality, profession or nationality.

Nothing to see here: Sandra went for an androgynous black and white suit combo with trainers
He said ‘I like a fluidity in relation to the work I do – even in my own personal life. I like the idea of not being defined as one particular thing, whether that’s being an actor, or being Irish, or being gay, whatever the fuck it is. I don’t think there’s too much value in saying, ‘This is what I am.’
Andrew, who came out in his early 20s, said: ‘I always thought this about being gay – it’s a great gift that you’re given, when you have to go around to everybody in your life and say, ‘This is me, I hope you love me,’ and they say that they do.’ Did he think people would reject him? ‘Yes, absolutely.’ And did any? ‘No, not one person.’
After TV scribe Phoebe parked her script-writing duties on Killing Eve to concentrate on penning the latest James Bond outing No Time To Die, she also seemed thrilled to reunite with the show’s stars Fiona Shaw and Sandra Oh.

In the play, Phoebe takes on the titular role, a sexually voracious woman living in London who speaks her mind in a fourth-wall breaking performance.
Following the sitcom’s finale, Phoebe announced that she would be resurrecting the stage version – which then sold out all 30 dates in less than an hour.
Since taking to the stage, Phoebe, who was recently called in to offer her expertise for the upcoming Bond film No Time To Die, has seen her play receive a plethora of five-star reviews.
The writer first created and performed Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013, before a successful run at the Soho Theatre led her to adapt the show for BBC Three in 2016.
Phoebe also performed a limited-run of the theatre production in New York City at the Soho Playhouse from March to April this year.
