Last night, Jodie Comer made her return as TV’s most charming assassin in the second season of Killing Eve. This morning, Jodie is the cover star of Town & Country’s May 2019 issue (on newsstands April 10th).
Inside the issue, the 26-year-old breakout star opens up about her childhood, her serious skincare regime, why she and her mother love to watch Judge Judy together, and more. T&C also secured an exclusive interview with Jodie’s London facialist, Jasmina Vico.
On childhood and if her parents ever expected her to be a famous actress: “I recently asked my mom if she ever thought I’d end up doing this professionally, and she said no. I didn’t really go to a local drama school until I was maybe 11. But as a child I was always doing impressions – of Cilla Black, of the singer Anastacia. I was very extroverted, very in touch with my emotions. I loved to talk, and I was probably a bit of a nuisance in the classroom because I never shut up.”
On how she views her character Villanelle on Killing Eve: “…I viewed Villanelle at the start as an actress of sorts. The way she prepares for her jobs, how she takes them very seriously and is proud of her work and gets off on seeing people be convinced by her guise and her charm.”
On her dedication to sunscreen: “Every day, rain or snow. I try and tell everyone how important this is, and they’re all like ‘Shut up, I’m not putting [SPF] 50 on when it’s thunder and lightning outside.’ And I’m like, ‘You can still get the damage!’
On why she and her mother love to watch Judge Judy together: “She’s fierce – she takes no sh*t!” Image courtesy of Town & Country. (source)
