‘Killing Eve’ star Jodie Comer: ‘A fan once asked me to strangle her’

Series 2 recently aired in the US

Killing Eve star Jodie Comer has revealed that a female fan once asked if she would strangle her.

The actress who plays psychopathic assassin Villanelle in the BBC America/AMC series said the incident happened after a fan asked her for a picture.

She told The Graham Norton Show in tonight’s show (April 20): “A lot of people just look at me in a ‘is it her?’ sort of way.

“Recently I had a really strange one – a woman asked for a photograph with me and then she whispered in my ear: ‘Will you strangle me?’ I said: ‘No’.”

Comer also said despite the success of the Golden-Globe winning first series, there has been a lot pressure on the second series.

She added: “There is a lot more pressure because of expectations and everyone is waiting on tenterhooks for it to come out, but once you start filming, you just have to put that to one side.

The second series recently aired in the US but is still to be screened in the UK.

A third season of Killing Eve was recently confirmed, despite the fact that the UK air date for season two has not yet been announced.

This time around, Suzanne Heathcote will act as showrunner, taking over directly from Emerald Fennell.
