Their chemistry is sparking on screen and off, too.
Killing Eve‘s Jodie Comer has shared how much of her relationship with Sandra Oh remains “unsaid” off screen.
In the thriller produced by BAFTA TV Award winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Academy Award nominee Emerald Fennell, Comer and Oh’s on-screen bond has turned from antagonist to intense fascination over the course of three series.
Speaking to Digital Spy and other media ahead of the Virgin Media BAFTA Television Awards, Comer explained how her own real-life relationship with Oh is so unique.
“What’s incredible is sometimes you get to set and you can act with people and it can work well and it can be great and then sometimes, a handful of times, you can meet someone and there is so much that goes unsaid,” she said.
The actress continued: “There’s a really strong connection and I feel like I found that, felt that, with Sandra from the moment I auditioned with her. It was the same with Kim Bodnia, and in this series where we introduced Villanelle’s mother.
“Those relationships where you don’t have to say an awful lot. We don’t actually see each other an awful lot when we’re off set but then when you’re on set and you’re doing the material, it’s all kind of fizzing away. She’s been incredible to me.
“To think of where this show started and I remember her and Phoebe [Waller-Bridge] being like, ‘This show could be kind of a big thing. We’re just warning you so you can prepare yourself.’ So she’s always put her arm around me in that way, so yeah, I’m interested to see where series four goes.”
The cat-and-mouse game between Villanelle and Eve – and those who want them both dead – will come to its conclusion in Killing Eve‘s fourth series, with the BBC promising fans that “anything worth having is worth the wait”.
