Who is Jodie Comer?

Many wonder where Jodie Comer grew up, especially after hearing her many different accents in her role as international assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve. Her Russian accent is just as convincing as her posh English, French, Italian, German and many more.  

In fact, Jodie Comer is originally from Liverpool, UK. Comer told The Metro that she mastered her many accents from when she was young, practicing different accents and mimicking people on the TV as a sort of game with her dad. Clearly, the game paid off because Jodie has fast become one of the most sought after actresses around, winning multiple awards including two TV Choice Awards for Best Actress (2019 and 2022) and a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (2019).  

Now let’s take a look at the great shows Comer has featured in which earned her all this acclaim!  


Killing Eve 

Stream on BBC iPlayer

Comer’s most iconic role was for Killing Eve, a violent but funny thriller that follows Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), a spy for MI5 who sets out to track down a stylish, complicated and lethal international assassin (played by Jodie Comer.) The two quickly become obsessed with each other, their twisted game of cat-and-mouse leading to lethal consequences. The combination of a perfect cast, Phoebe Waller-Bridges witty writing and some seriously edgy fashion, Killing Eve was an immediate hit.
