Jodie Comer Joins Killing Eve


Jodie Comer is set to star opposite Sandra Oh in BBC America’s highly anticipated thriller Killing Eve from Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The BAFTA-nominated actress’ credits include The White Princess, Thirteen and Lady Chatterley’s Lover. She has been cast as assassin Villanelle opposite Oh’s Eve, a security services operative who aspires to be a spy. The series is based on the novellas by Luke Jennings.

Produced by Sid Gentle Films, the eight-episode drama is set to premiere in 2018. IMG has been appointed international distributor.

“Jodie Comer is amazing, and will capture the precise, genius psychopathy of the character Villanelle,” said Sarah Barnett, president of BBC America. “With Sandra Oh playing her foil and Phoebe Waller-Bridge as creator, there is a boatload of brilliance fueling this new show.”
