Danielle Stein Chizzik conducts the interview ‘Jodie Comer Is Hollywood’s Next Great Chameleon’.
“It’s hugely demanding,” says her co-star Sandra Oh, who plays the MI6 agent on Comer’s chameleonic Russian assassin character Villanelle’s trail, of Comer’s role. “There’s the fighting, the accents, the languages. It’s not like a film where you prepare for a year and then you know Russian perfectly. We get new scripts, and she goes, ‘Oh, gotta speak French.’ I’d be very hard-pressed to do some of the things Jodie does. She was born with an uncanny ear, and she just has tremendous innate talent. She travels at light speed.”
BBC America surprised the ‘Killing Eve’ stars today, announcing that ‘Killing Eve’ has been renewed for a third season.
AMC Networks (including BBC America and IFC) by group president Sarah Barnett announced that British writer Suzanne Heathcote takes over for Emerald Fennell as the Phoebe Waller-Bridge drama continues to pass the baton to a new female writer every season, writes THR.
"We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw on our networks,” Barnett said. “Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons. As we did last year, we’re renewing Killing Eve right out of the gate, now with Suzanne Heathcote as lead writer, as a sign of confidence — we adore this show as much as our fans do. ‘ Killing Eve’ doesn’t do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark.”
Returning to her extensive, let me introduce myself Town & Country interview, we learn that Comer will soon be filming ‘Free Guy’ after promoting season two of ‘Killing Eve’. And she was recently cast alongside Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer in a new version of ‘Death on the Nile’ directed by Kenneth Branagh. Comer’s role played by Mia Farrow in the 1978 film version.
Kudos to a fresh dose of Marc Hom fashion photography at Town & Country, with a solid interview to boot.
