BBC America is excited to announce that BAFTA-nominated actress Jodie Comer (Thirteen, The White Princess, Lady Chatterley’s Lover) has been cast opposite Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy, Sideways) in the network’s highly anticipated original series Killing Eve. The new show is a dramatic thriller revolving around a psychopathic assassin and the woman charged with hunting her down. The eight-episode drama comes from Phoebe Waller-Bridge (BBC UK and Amazon’s Fleabag, UK Channel 4’s Crashing), and it will premiere in 2018.

Based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve centers on two women; Eve (Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Comer) is an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

You may recognize Jodie Comer from BBC America’s miniseries Thirteen, for which she was nominated for a BAFTA award for Best Leading Actress. She’s also appeared in numerous other programs including The White Princess, the recent adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, and the drama series Doctor Foster.

Sandra Oh has appeared in numerous TV series and films, receiving widespread critical attention. Oh was recognized for her outstanding performance on Grey’s Anatomy with a Golden Globe®, two SAG awards and five Primetime Emmy® Awards nominations. Other notable television roles include American Crime and HBO’s Arli$$ for which she won a Cable Ace. Her award-winning performances in film include Sideways, Last Night and Double Happiness. She has also been featured in films such as Under the Tuscan Sun, The Princess Diaries, Dancing at the Blue Iguana and Rabbit Hole. Most recently, she starred in the cult film Catfight, and Window Horses. Recent theater credits include Office Hour at SCR, Death and the Maiden at Victory Garden theater and the public workshop of Wild Goose Dreams at the Public.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge will serve as Showrunner and Executive Producer, alongside Executive Producers Sally Woodward Gentle and Lee Morris. The series is produced by Sid Gentle Films.

MONROWE – In STARZ’s new original series, “The White Princess,” 24-year-old actress Jodie Comer inhabits a world of corsets, arranged marriages, and monarchies. But Comer doesn’t want to stay there forever. She refuses to be categorized and hopes to continue to surprise her audience as she jumps from genre to genre. MONROWE took the time to speak with Comer about her successful television career, her jump to the silver screen, and her hopes for the future.

You’ve recently been nominated for a BAFTA for your role in “Thirteen.” What was it like to get in the headspace of a character like Ivy? I’m always drawn to darker material. I don’t know why, but just find it quite fascinating. I think for Ivy, she was such a complex character. In my head, I was like, “Oh God, no matter what performance I do, I’m never ever going to be able to fully imagine what this experience must be like.” So I knew it was really going to kind of test me in that way. What I thought was amazing about “Thirteen” was that you never really got the gory details. A lot of it is left to the imagination.

Was there any specific method of preparation that you would use before a take to transport yourself into that type of tormented psyche? I’m quite good at kind of flipping in between the two. Sometimes you just joke around and jump into it, but then other times I just go off and sit on my own and put my headphones in. For each job, I’ll have a kind of music that I’m drawn to that I feel relates to the piece or makes me feel like that character would listen to it.

[…]

Jumping to your work now in “The White Princess.” It’s quite a leap, content-wise, from “Thirteen,” so what was it like transitioning from playing a woman like Ivy, who had half of her life stolen from her, to then playing Lizzie, who definitely has her life planned for her but finds her own strength within that? It was amazing! That is definitely something that I want to continue to do in my work, to go from one extreme to the next. Well, not extreme — but now I’m really hungry to do something quite modern and gritty; I think it’s good to challenge yourself, and keep it fresh, and to surprise people. I never want to be pigeonholed.
