Jodie Comer Talks Killing Eve, Sandra Oh, and Her Fav Thing About Villanelle | ELLE

  • Published on Mar 11, 2019
  • Are you watching Jodie Comer? The 26-year-old actress plays the terrifyingly-efficient assassin Villanelle on BBC's Killing Eve, who commits atrocious crimes with an almost feral femininity. In her favorite Liverpool slang, she's what you would call "boss.” But just like her character, Comer isn't one thing. Get an exclusive look at her shoot for our April 2019 issue, and read what Comer has to say about Sandra Oh and tapping into her dark side, here:

    Great show. Her character needs some serious assassin competition for season 3. I’d throw Natalia Tena (Osha from Game of Thrones) into the mix.

    I am from Liverpool and get mistaken for Eastern European all the time. I am thrilled when I see glimpses of a dosy art student type in Killing Eve. That is so well observed its genius.
    I hated her middle class character in Doctor Foster. She is my favorite actress now.

    Comer is a 1000 Karat actor (and none too hard on the eyes)
    There would be no "Killing Eve" without her, she is the show.

    It seems like they switched the traditional sexy male assassin role to be a female assassin instead. It makes sense if you consider it a weird show. *i thought Eve was going to get complete revenge for Bill...

    How did Jodie not win ANYTHING for her performance in season 1?? She did an exceptional job. While Sandra's performance was good, Jodie really made the role her own and it is sad she didn't receive the acclaim she deserves. I hope she gains more recognition.

    Jodie is an amazing and rapidly rising British actress. I saw her in the BBC series 13 and I thought that she was a Bristolian and never once thought she would have a Liverpudlian accent! Great lady and I'm currently watching Killing Eve which is fantastic. Look forward to seeing her in more series.

      @Patricio Jesus I wish people would stop pitting women against one another. They never quibble over men's performances in a show (whether one man deserves an award over another one). Only when it involves women. Very few Americans watched Killing Eve, so for Sandra Oh and Killing Eve to win awards at all was a blessing. The BAFTAs just recognized Jodie's performance last week for lead actress in Killing Eve. She'll get recognized by the Americans eventually.
