Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer discusses filming the final series of show and working with Ryan Reynolds


Killing Eve‘s Jodie Comer has discussed filming the fourth and final series of the hit show and her new role in blockbuster Free Guy in a new interview with Digital Spy

The actress, 28, who plays assassin Villanelle in the acclaimed drama, is currently filming the final series with co-star Sandra Oh, and said she felt ’emotional’ about the thought of her career-making role coming to an end.

She said: ‘It doesn’t feel different, but I suspect it will in a couple of weeks’ time.

‘I definitely had a moment where I looked at the clapperboard the other day before doing a take and I was like, “Oh God”. 

‘I was thinking about the moment when that’s going to be the last take, I felt a little bit emotional. We have two more blocks to go before we can let that get the better of us.’

Jodie’s latest acting role sees her star alongside Hollywood superstar Ryan Reynolds in Free Guy and she believes her villainous role in Killing Eve helped her. 

‘I guess so, maybe subconsciously because Villanelle is definitely multi-faceted and there are so many elements to her. 

‘I was less intimidated coming to Free Guy and that being a big aspect of the film, for sure. They are very, very different though.

‘It’s funny as well because people tend to think Killing Eve is quite physical, but it isn’t so much. Working with the stunt team and doing all of that felt very new to me.’

Jodie also praised Ryan, 44, saying: ‘He’s everything you think he’s gonna be and more. He really is wonderful. 

‘I met him initially at my first audition, I flew to New York a day after finishing season two of Killing Eve, and he was just so generous. 

‘Even on set, he was always making sure that everyone was comfortable, everyone was having fun, so he’s just been a great person to learn from and watch, really.” 

  Free Guy follows Ryan as a bank teller who realises he is a background player in an open-world video game, prompting him to re-write himself as the ‘good guy.’ 

She said: 'I was thinking about the moment when that's going to be the last take, I felt a little bit emotional. We have two more blocks to go before we can let that get the better of us'

Reynolds’ character Guy goes about what he sees as normal daily life in a city riddled with absolute chaos (bank heists, people crashing through windows), until Jodie’s character Milly unlocks the truth about the simulation that he has been living in all along. 

After she reveals the reality of his situation, Guy is determined to re-write his own destiny as the hero of the world, and they take on the city together — eventually striking up a romantic connection.   

The star-studded cast also includes Stranger Things’ Joe Keery and Taika Waititi as the game-world’s mastermind. The Twentieth Century Studios’ production is set for release on August 13. 

When Waititi’s ‘God-like’ character Antoine, gets wind of Guy’s knowledge, he is determined to destroy both him and the world he’s created which has been dubbed ‘Free City.’ 

The interview comes as fans eagerly await the final series of Killing Eve – series three left viewers ‘in tears’ following the emotional finale that saw Eve and Villanelle decide to ‘walk away’ from each other.

The ‘will-they-won’t-they’ storyline that dominated the plot appeared to come to an end when Villanelle and Eve stood back-to-back on London Bridge and agreed to walk away and ‘never look back’.

However in the final moments of the episode both Villanelle and Eve turned back around to look at each other – suggesting the two characters might end up together.

The promise of a future relationship delighted fans, who begged for the next series to start with the two characters together.  

The episode also tied up loose ends of the series, including revealing Konstantin as Kenny’s apparent killer. Security footage showed Konstantin (Kim Bodnia) arriving at the office and meeting with Kenny (Sean Delaney) hours before his death.

Armed with the footage, Carolyn confronted Konstantin, with Paul (Steve Pemberton), Eve and Villanelle also in attendance.

She came close to killing Konstantin but instead killed Paul, who was working for both MI6 and The Twelve.

Konstantin, who had planned to leave to Cuba, left but Villanelle decided not to follow.  

The episode also saw Villanelle being rejected by Carolyn after she said she was ready to become an MI6 agent. Carolyn responded: ‘What use are you to me… to anyone?,’ referring to the assassin’s desire not to kill any more.

The drama culminated in the conversation between Eve and Villanelle on the bridge, during which they discussed their future.

The full interview with Jodie Comer is available now on the Digital Spy website.
