Jodie Comer will “always miss” ‘Killing Eve’, but doesn’t “long” to do another series.

The 30-year-old actress, who starred as Villanelle in the BBC drama alongside Sandra Oh’s Eve Polastri, finished working on the show in 2022, and has admitted she misses playing the character, but is happy with leaving the programme behind.

She told Metro newspaper's SixtySeconds column: “I’ll always miss her.

“But I do think the show had to come to an end. I don’t long to come back for another series and revisit her.

“I feel like I did all I could with her. And that’s a nice feeling - to come away from it with a sense of contentment.”

The ‘Free Guy’ star is set to take to the big screen again in ‘The End We Started From’, where London is plagued by extreme rain and flooding, all whilst a new mother and her child are forced to flee the city.

Reflecting on the picture, Jodie explained that she was drawn to the project because of director Mahalia Belo’s interpretation of the realities of motherhood.

She said: “One of the many reasons I wanted to work with the director, Mahalia Belo, wis that she didn’t want to shy away from the beauty but also the brutality of labour and motherhood, and all of these kinds of complex emotions that you can have with your own body. How you change fundamentally as a person.”

The actress also admitted she struggled working with the babies, and that she was left “visibly shaking”.

She explained: “I’m not a mother, and the first babies I et were eight weeks old and tiny. My hands were visibly shaking.

“I remember thinking, ‘Oh my God, what have I done? This is terrifying’, and then slowly, as we filmed, I became more comfortable.

“The babies had to have a break every 20 minutes - rightly so. But it meant that you could be on one shot and the baby’s looking at you in a way that kind of lights you up and gives you something spontaneous, and the has to go on a break and it’s, ‘Ok, now you have to do it with a doll.’

“And you have to try to summon that same emotion, which feels really artificial.”
