Jodie Comer initially feared the worst after landing Killing Eve’s Villanelle as nude: GQ Photosoot

Jodie Comer has admitted that she initially worried about playing female assassin Villanelle in the hit BBC series Killing Eve over how much she’d have to be naked.

The 26-year-old actress, who revealed she doesn’t get approached by men since she started playing the character, confessed she originally feared her part in Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s adapted drama because of the costumes – or lack of.

In an interview for GQ HYPE, Jodie confessed how she reacted after first hearing she’d landed Villanelle and recalled: ‘I was like, “Oh, f*** no.” Because I always think of someone in a leather catsuit and six-inch heels scaling walls.

‘Also, How naked is she going to be? I should have known better, knowing Phoebe was the writer.’

Jodie has a great admiration for showrunner Phoebe, who also masterminded the BBC Three comedy Fleabag.

‘I love her so much,’ she enthused.

‘I’ve said to her she has to cast me on every single thing she makes from now on. Otherwise I’ll send Villanelle!’
