KILLING Eve’s Jodie Comer has revealed fans have asked her to CHOKE them in photos.
The 28-year-old made the shocking revelation on BBC Radio 1 as she divulged some of the pitfalls of playing glamorous assassin Villanelle.
Since Killing Eve started in 2018, Jodie has become a household name thanks to playing the unhinged Russian killer obsessed with her pursuer, MI6 agent Eve Polastri, played by Sandra Oh.
Jodie said the most common fan requests she gets are people either asking her to pose in the photos by pretending to strangle them or to speak in Villanelle’s Russian accent.
She is currently starring opposite Ryan Reynolds in box office smash Free Guy along with Stranger Things star Joe Keery.
But she was spotted last month filming in Margate for the fourth and final season of Killing Eve.
While to date the show has filmed in locations all over Europe including Paris, Tuscany and Berlin, the first scenes of season four were filmed in Margate, Kent.
Jodie was pictured on set with co-star Fiona Shaw, 63, who plays MI6 agent Caroyln Martens.
Season three of Killing Eve ended with Villanelle and Eve deciding to “walk away” from each other once and for all.
The pair – who have had sexual tension between them since the very beginning – stood back to back on London’s Tower Bridge and agreed to be apart from one another and “never look back”.
However, both women ended up turning back to look at one another, meaning their unfinished business continues.
Show bosses also revealed the next series of Killing Eve will deliver its biggest shock yet.
The final season of the BBC drama will see Villanelle, transform from sick assassin to born-again Christian.
A TV insider said: “Villanelle actually turns to God quite early on in the fourth season, which will be a real eye-opener for viewers since she’s spent most of her life murdering people.
“But it’s a characteristic curveball from the makers of Killing Eve, who have always liked to keep fans on their toes with unexpected plots.
“And this ensures the drama, which has been one of the most talked about of the past three years, doesn’t end by simply tapering off.”
The show, created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, has seen Villanelle stab, poison, shoot and choke her victims.
And after a second and third series aired in 2019 and 2020, it attracted a long line of big-name actors including Fiona Shaw, Dame Harriet Walter and Steve Pemberton.
Filming of the fourth series was held up due to coronavirus restrictions, but production has just restarted and the resulting episodes are set to air next year.
