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:

    I think it's a measure of her talent as an actress that you can never quite stop seeing Villanelle's unsettling gaze behind her eyes . . . Wonderful lady.

    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.

    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.

      @1961Blanchflower no she won it for the first season because at the time she won the award. The second season hadn't yet come out here

    • 1961Blanchflower
      1961Blanchflower Month ago

      @M L Was that for the second series (well deserved anyway)? I agree with zara - her performance in the first series was so eye-catching, so versatile and charismatic. She had already done some great work in other things, but this was a leap forward. In a great cast, she still stood out, and it was odd that Sandra Oh got an Emmy nomination rather than her. Best since Tatiana Maslany in Orphan Black, in my view.

      Yes - playing an underwritten role as the husband-stealing 'other woman', in a series that was mainly a showcase for Suranne Jones's pyrotechnics, she still shone through (not a hint that she could do anything as brilliant as Villanelle though!).

      Don't know why so many Brits look down at the scouse accent. Everybody loves the Beatles. Americans like all other versions of English accents.
