Killing Eve: Villanelle ‘resonated with LGBT community’


Killing Eve stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer have discussed acting together in a new interview, with the latter saying her character is much closer connected to the LGBT community than anyone could think and the show itself declares the promotion of LGBT acceptance as one of its key goals. As for relationships between Villanelle and Eve, the actress is sure that the two characters have a mutual obsession. You can have these relationships with women, this fascination, this compulsiveness to know this, and I don’t think that I’ve ever really seen that explored on television,” Comer told Entertainment Weekly. Comer also said that, of all the things, she had a near-death experience when she choked on a dish of pasta during the filming for one Killing Eve scene in Season 2. The actress’s brother, whom she told this story, said that this is the clearest example of who Villanelle is – she can create a mouthful of pasta even on the edge of the death. Season 1 of Killing Eve, based on Luke Jennings’s Codename Villanelle book series, received rave reviews and picked up a number of awards, including Sandra Oh winning a Golden Globe for her role as Eve. The trailer for Season 2 of the show, which combines black comedy and psychosexual elements, was released on February 14.
