Cast & Creatives
Emmy and BAFTA-winning actress, Jodie Comer, is best known for her starring roles in KILLING EVE, FREE GUY, THE WHITE PRINCESS, THIRTEEN and DOCTOR FOSTER.
Jodie first rose to prominence in BBC legal drama JUSTICE and E4’s BAFTA and International Emmy Award nominated British comedy-drama series MY MAD FAT DIARY.
Following this, Jodie played a teenage care assistant, in BBC One supernatural mini-series REMEMBER ME opposite Michael Palin.
In 2015, Jodie was seen in the TV movie LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER, an adaptation of D. H. Lawrence’s tale directed by Jed Mercurio for BBC One. Jodie starred alongside Richard Madden, Holliday Grainger and James Norton.
2015 also saw Jodie in the BBC One ratings phenomenon DOCTOR FOSTER alongside Suranne Jones and Bertie Carvel. The mini-series was written by award-winning writer Mike Bartlett. The BBC series resonated on the Awards circuit, scooping up Best New Drama at the 2016 National Television Awards, the TV Drama Award at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards and the Best New Drama Award at the TV Choice Awards 2016. DOCTOR FOSTER was also nominated for Mini-Series and the Radio Times Audience Award at the British Academy Television Awards 2016. Jodie reprised her role in the second series.
Jodie was announced as one of Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow in 2016. In the same year she received a BAFTA TV nomination for her leading role in BBC Three’s first major online series, THIRTEEN, a five-part psychological drama about a young woman working her way back into society after being abducted. Jodie played Ivy Moxam, who escaped from a cellar that had been her prison for the last thirteen years. Jodie received wide praise for her performance in THIRTEEN, The Telegraph commented, "Comer’s performance as the disturbed Ivy, a twitching bundle of nerves and vulnerability, was excellent” and “Jodie Comer, as Ivy, has done a superb job of imagining the unimaginable, and hers was a doubly difficult brief (...). This required Comer to act as if her character might herself be acting, a thin line that she toed impeccably throughout." Sunday Times, Culture added, “movie stardom surely awaits Comer.”
In 2016, Jodie was seen in BBC One’s RILLINGTON PLACE. This gripping three-part drama was based on the real-life multiple murders committed by John Christie in London in the 1940s and 50s. Jodie starred alongside Tim Roth, Samantha Morton and Nico Mirallegro.
In 2017, Jodie played the title role of Elizabeth of York in the Starz series, THE WHITE PRINCESS, the sequel to the acclaimed historical TV drama The White Queen. THE WHITE PRINCESS is part of Philippa Gregory’s best-selling The Cousins’ War novels, chronicling the long-running War of the Roses.
Following this, Jodie made her film debut in Mark Gill’s, ENGLAND IS MINE, a portrait of UK rock star Morrissey as a young man before he joined The Smiths. She starred alongside Jack Lowden and Jessica Brown Findlay.
Jodie received worldwide praise and attention for her starring role in the BBC America thriller KILLING EVE, opposite Sandra Oh. KILLING EVE follows Eve (Sandra Oh), a MI5 security officer whose desk job does not fulfil her fantasies of being a spy, and a glamourous, sociopathic Russian assassin known as Villanelle (Jodie). When Eve is tasked with tracking down Villanelle before she can strike again, the two women are thrown into a cat-and-mouse game that turns the traditional spy-thriller on its head. Alternating between darkly funny and chillingly tense, KILLING EVE explores themes of obsession and sociopathy. Villanelle is handed various new assignments, which see her leading a trail of bloody and creative murders across Europe and thus stalked by MI5 investigator, Eve. As Eve and Villanelle continue to encounter and become fixated with one another, they become part of a much larger conspiracy that suggests they may not actually be on opposing sides. The shadowy organizations they ultimately work for might be more closely connected than expected, as both women come to discover in their independent ways. The series is based on the ‘Villanelle’ series of novellas by Luke Jennings and has received a 100% “fresh” approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Jodie received rave reviews for her performance, with The Hollywood Reporter commenting, “the biggest surprise is probably Comer as the Russian-originated assassin now using Paris as her home base. Comer was last seen as the shell- shocked kidnap victim in the BBC miniseries Thirteen, but turns 180 degrees here as the young assassin Villanelle... Villanelle might be the most coquettish sociopath in some time, if not ever, and Comer manages to be magnetic, weirdly funny and extremely dangerous in the same breath.” Vanity Fair added “one of the most magnetic, roguish psychopaths in TV history”, and TV Line commended her performance, “Comer is an absolute revelation as Villanelle, in a star-making performance: seductive and terrifying, juggling multiple accents and shifting emotions on a dime” and Entertainment Weekly went as far as to laud Jodie’s performance as “probably the single best TV performance of 2018.”
Much like the first series, the second series of KILLING EVE was met with widespread critical and audience acclaim. The opening episode picked up 36 seconds from where the first series finished, with Villanelle trying to remain hidden and recuperate from her injuries whilst a new cat-and-mouse game unfolds. Reviewed with 5* from The Telegraph and with 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, The New York Times said that Jodie “burn(s) just as brightly” as in the former series. KILLING EVE is BBC iPlayer’s biggest non-continuous drama programme of all-time - with nearly 110m requests to view both series one and two to date.
Jodie won the Leading Actress award at the 2019 BAFTA Television Awards, the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award at the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards, the Best Female Actor award at the Royal Television Society Awards 2019, the Best Actress award at the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards 2019, and Entertainer Of The Year at Stylist’s Remarkable Women Awards 2019. She has also received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama, a Screen Actor’s Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Drama Series, a Television Critics Association for Individual Achievement in Drama (2018 & 2019), a National Television Award for Outstanding Drama Performance, and a Gold Derby nomination in the Drama Actress category. KILLING EVE was nominated for Best Television Series at the Golden Globes, Primetime Emmy Awards (2018 & 2019), Gold Derby Awards, Gotham Awards (won), People’s Choice Awards, Television Critics Association Awards (won in 2018 & nominated in 2019), Critics’ Choice Television Awards, Peabody Award (won) and National Television Awards. The series was nominated for 14 awards at the 2019 BAFTA Television Awards, including Drama Series (won) and Must-See Moment.
Jodie reprised her role in the third series of the multi-award-winning drama with The Telegraph saying, “It’s been repeatedly written about, far and wide, but it’s worth saying again: Comer’s performance as Villanelle remains about as perfect as one can get. She is one of Britain’s most staggering talents, a magnetic, gripping, precise performer, not to mention that exceptional mastery of accents.” Jodie picked up Leading Actress nominations at the BAFTA Television Awards, Critics Choice Television Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Primetime Emmy Awards, Satellite Awards and Screen Actors Guild Awards. KILLING EVE was nominated for Drama Series at the GLAAD Media Awards, Golden Globes, Primetime Emmy Awards and Satellite Awards.
Jodie is currently filming the fourth and final series of KILLING EVE.
In 2018, Jodie starred in the comedy short SNATCHES: MOMENTS FROM WOMEN’S LIVES, inspired by women who have spoken out, challenged the status quo or made a stand – often at great personal cost. Jodie starred as Bovril Pam, a Scouse secretary on the cusp of the sexual revolution in 1961. SNATCHES: MOMENTS FROM WOMEN’S LIVES aired on BBC Four and Jodie’s episode was nominated for the Short Form Programme BAFTA Award at the 2019 BAFTA Television Awards.
Jodie made a surprise cameo appearance in STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, where she played Rey’s mother, alongside Billy Howle as Rey’s father.
Last year, Jodie was seen in Alan Bennett’s TALKING HEADS on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Alan Bennett’s critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning TALKING HEADS monologues, first aired on the BBC in 1988 and 1998, breaking new ground for television, and widely celebrated as Alan Bennett’s masterpieces. This year, ten of the original pieces were remade, with the addition of two new ones written by Bennett. They were produced by Nicholas Hytner’s London Theatre Company. Jodie starred in Her Big Chance (1988), directed by Josie Rourke. The original monologue was performed by Julie Walters. The contained nature of Bennett's monologues allowed the opportunity to tell timely and relevant stories while following the latest government guidelines on safe working practices during Covid-19. Filming took place at BBC Elstree Studios using existing sets. “For 40 sublime minutes, the award-winning Scouser plays aspirant, ’80s actress Lesley in Her Big Chance... Comer has brought all her dazzling, own-brand pathos to what is sure to be one of the most talked-about slices of TV of the year.” – British Vogue
Jodie can currently be seen in her first feature film, Twentieth Century Fox’s epic adventure-comedy FREE GUY, opposite Ryan Reynolds. Directed by Shawn Levy, FREE GUY tells the story of a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game and decides to become the hero of his own story.

Set in a fictional Liverpool care home, HELP tells the moving story of the relationship between a care home worker (Jodie) and a Young Onset Alzheimer’s patient (Stephen Graham), whose lives are changed forever by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. This project also marks Jodie’s first time as an Executive Producer.
Later this year, Jodie will star in Ridley Scott’s period drama, THE LAST DUEL, alongside Matt Damon, Adam Driver and Ben Affleck. Set in 14th century France, the film is an epic tale of betrayal and justice, told from three distinct points of view: two knights (Matt Damon and Adam Driver) whose bond is tested by treachery and a young woman (Jodie) forced to navigate the brutal and oppressive culture of the era in order to survive. The film will premiere at the 78th Venice International Film Festival.
