Ted Lasso's Phil Dunster on Jamie's Maturation, Love Triangle With Roy and Keeley and Memeification of 'Poop-eh'

One could argue that no Ted Lasso character has evolved more than Phil Dunster‘s Jamie Tartt. While the internet’s been obsessing over his pronunciation of “poop-eh,” AFC Richmond’s well-coiffed striker has been putting in the work to become the best possible version of himself — on and off the pitch.

Much of that progress is evident in scenes opposite former teammate-turned-coach Roy Kent, who in Episode 3 offered to train Jamie to become an even greater footballer than Zava. Whereas the Jamie we first met would be doing this solely to outshine the club’s new star recruit — remember his response to Dani Rojas’ arrival in Season 1? — the Jamie of Season 3 is doing it because he’s determined to reach his full potential. Zava’s purely a motivator.

Ahead of Episode 4, TVLine hopped on the phone with Dunster to discuss Jamie’s evolution from narcissistic twit to caring and compassionate teammate, his burgeoning bromance with Roy and their lingering love triangle with Keeley.
