JODIE Comer’s career is skyrocketing thanks to her role as Villanelle in BBC’s Killing Eve.
Here’s the lowdown on the rising star who is taking over the world.
What award did Jodie Comer win at the 2019 Emmys?
In September 2019 Jodie took home the gong for Best Actress in a Drama.
She won the award for her much-loved role of Villanelle in Killing Eve.

What has Jodie Comer said about season three of Killing Eve?
As you know, Killing Eve propelled Jodie to stardom when it hit our screens in 2018.
Fans are now eagerly awaiting the third series – which will drop in 2020.
Season two ended with Vilanelle shooting Eve – with fans wondering if she was going to live or die.
Speaking about how the show will pick up from this incredible cliffhanger Jodie told Entertainment Weekly: “That’s something that we’re going to look at and have to think about in [season] 3.
“As we tap into this woman’s emotions more or getting into the psyche of what she does feel and what she doesn’t feel, it’s: what is it about this woman that has such a hold? Does she, in fact? There’s so much to delve into in regards to that.”
She added: “We have to think about if she’s shooting her to kill her.
“Villanelle doesn’t do a job halfheartedly or not go through what it is she’s out to do. So, we have to make a lot of big decisions in that moment, and a lot of these decisions were very final. These are somethings that we have to pick up with in [season] 3.”
Is Jodie Comer married?
Jodie is currently single.
Her last long-term relationship ended in early 2019.
Jodie says playing a psychopathic killer has its drawbacks on her love life — as men can be terrified when they meet her.
She told The Sun: “I wanted people to be scared of her. But when I am introduced to men sometimes they are a little bit hesitant and yes, maybe they can be a bit frightened.
“But then when they meet me, they see the real me and it’s like, ‘Oh, she’s safe, she’s all good’.”
