She starred as Oksana Astankova / Villanelle in the BBC America spy thriller Killing Eve (2018-2022), for which she won a British Academy Television Award for Best Actress as well as a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Millie Rusk / Molotov Girl in Free Guy (2021) and Marguerite de Carrouges in The Last Duel are two of her major film roles (2021).

Comer, who was born and raised in Liverpool, began her career in an episode of The Royal Today in 2008. She landed the roles of Chloe Gemell in the E4 comedy-drama series My Mad Fat Diary (2013-2015) and Kate Parks in the BBC One drama series Doctor Foster after appearing in several television series (2015–2017). Between series, Comer received praise for her performance as Ivy Moxam in the BBC Three drama miniseries Thirteen. Elizabeth of York in the Starz historical miniseries The White Princess (2017) and Sarah in the Channel 4 television film Help are among her other notable television roles (2021). In 2022, Comer made her West End debut at the Harold Pinter Theatre in Suzie Miller's play Prima Facie.

Early years

Jodie Marie Comer was born on March 11, 1993, in Liverpool, to Merseyrail employee Donna Comer and Everton FC physiotherapist James Comer. She grew up in the Liverpool suburb of Childwall. Charlie, her younger brother, is her only sibling (born in 1995). She went to St Julie's Catholic High School in the Liverpool suburb of Woolton, where she met future Olympian Katarina Johnson-Thompson. She began acting when she was 11 years old at a local weekend drama school called CALS in the Belle Vale area of Liverpool, and it was through this school that she entered the Liverpool Performing Arts Festival in 2006 at St George's Hall and won first place in her category after performing a monologue about the Hillsborough Disaster.

Because a holiday with her family clashed with rehearsals for the school's talent show, Comer's friends kicked her out of their high school dance group, and she instead decided to perform a monologue for the show. Despite the fact that she did not win, her performance prompted the school's drama teacher to request a favour from friends in the entertainment industry, which allowed her to audition for a BBC Radio 4 play. Her co-stars in the play advised her to get an agent and told her she could have a successful acting career, and this would be her first acting job.


Beginnings in one's career (2008–2017)

Comer's career began in 2008 with a guest appearance on an episode of The Royal Today, a spin-off series of The Royal. She went on to appear in shows like Waterloo Road, Holby City, Doctors, Silent Witness, Casualty, Law & Order: UK, Vera, and Inspector George Gently. She starred in the five-episode drama series Justice, the supernatural miniseries Remember Me, and the E4 comedy-drama series My Mad Fat Diary as Chloe Gemell. Comer appeared in the BBC One television film adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover in 2015. Comer starred as Kate Parks in the BBC One drama series Doctor Foster the same year.

Comer made her starring debut as Ivy Moxam in the BBC Three miniseries Thirteen, which premiered in February 2016 and earned her a British Academy Television Award nomination for Best Actress. In December 2016, she starred as Beryl Evans, one of serial killer John Christie's victims, in the BBC miniseries Rillington Place. Comer was named one of Screen International's "Stars of Tomorrow" in 2016, in collaboration with the BFI London Film Festival. In 2017, she portrayed a young Elizabeth of York in Starz's The White Princess, a sequel to the BBC miniseries The White Queen. She made her feature film debut in 2017 as Christine in the Morrissey biopic England Is Mine.

Killing Eve and global acclaim (2018-2022)

In April 2018, Comer debuted as Villanelle, a psychopathic Russian assassin who develops a mutual obsession with Eve Polastri (played by Sandra Oh), the MI6 agent tasked with tracking her down. The ambiguity—and impossibility—of Villanelle's character has worked (through the first season) thanks to Comer's mercurial, unassailable charisma," according to Jia Tolentino of The New Yorker. Because her character switches between multiple accents from around the world as part of her various disguises, Comer's native Scouse accent has received a lot of attention, much to the surprise of viewers who hear it for the first time. Comer was nominated for three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and three British Academy Television Awards for Best Actress for her portrayal of Villanelle, which she won in 2019.

In June 2018, Comer appeared in a BBC Four monologue series called Snatches: Moments From Women's Lives, which was inspired by events that occurred in the century since women first gained the right to vote. Comer appeared in the episode "Bovril Pam" as a secretary in 1960s Liverpool who was exploring her sexuality. Comer was ranked 94th on the 2018 Radio Times "TV 100" list. The Hollywood Reporter named her to their "Next Gen Talent 2018: Hollywood's Rising Young Stars" list in November 2018. During her Happy Sad Confused podcast interview in April 2019, Comer was asked about upcoming work and revealed that she had been forced to drop out of Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile due to scheduling conflicts.

Comer appeared as Rey's mother Miramir in flashbacks in the 2019 film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Comer will play Lesley in a BBC iPlayer reboot of the Talking Heads episode "Her Big Chance" in June 2020. Josie Rourke directed the episode, which was shot in a lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Comer was cast in the action comedy film Free Guy in December 2018, which began filming in May 2019. Comer co-stars with Ryan Reynolds as the female lead. In the film, she played two characters: Millie, a game developer, and Molotov Girl, Millie's in-game avatar. The film will be released on August 13, 2021. It will then be available for home viewing on Disney Plus on February 23, 2022. Comer sang a cover version of Mariah Carey's song "Fantasy" in the film. She was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress for this role.

Later that year, Comer collaborated with writer Jack Thorne and actor Stephen Graham to star in the Channel 4 drama Help, in which she played a young care home worker struggling during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom. She was also an executive producer. The role earned her a fifth nomination for Best Actress at the British Academy Television Awards, which she eventually won. Comer co-starred in Ridley Scott's The Last Duel as Marguerite de Carrouges, alongside Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Ben Affleck. On October 15, 2021, the film was released worldwide.

Comer made her West End debut in Suzie Miller's play Prima Facie, which premiered at the Harold Pinter Theatre in April 2022 and ran until June 2022. Comer received widespread acclaim for the role. When Prima Facie transfers from the West End to Broadway in spring 2023, Comer will make her Broadway debut. NT Live began showing a filmed performance of the play at the Harold Pinter Theatre in cinemas around the world on July 21, 2022.

Projects in the works

Comer will star in and produce a limited series adaptation of Jen Beagin's novel Big Swiss for HBO in March 2022. A24 and Adam McKay's Hyperobject Industries will produce the film. She has also agreed to star in and produce The End We Start From, an adaptation of Megan Hunter's debut novel directed by Mahalia Belo. SunnyMarch and Liza Marshall's Hera Pictures will produce the project, which will begin filming in August 2022. In the same month, Comer was cast alongside Austin Butler and Tom Hardy in Jeff Nichols' The Bikeriders, a fictional story inspired by Danny Lyon's photography and his 1967 book of the same name. New Regency will release the film, which will begin filming in October 2022.

Public perception

Comer was named to British Vogue's list of "The Most Influential Girls of 2018" in December 2018, and Forbes named her to their annual "30 Under 30" list in February 2019 for being one of the top 30 most influential people in Europe's entertainment industry under the age of 30.

Comer was announced as the face of the Loewe spring/summer 2020 fashion campaign in September 2019, just days after winning an Emmy. She starred in a short film for the brand, which consisted of her repeating the brand's name with different emotions. Comer was named the brand ambassador for skin-care company Noble Panacea on March 31, 2020.

Comer discussed her experiences with class discrimination as a working-class city dweller in 2020.

Comer is known for keeping her personal life and relationships private. She was previously active on Twitter, but she left the platform in 2020 after being harassed by fans who believed they had discovered proof that her American boyfriend was a Trump supporter. She stated in an interview with InStyle magazine, "It was the first time I'd been dragged into anything like that. It wasn't just me; it was my entire family. I had witnessed the absurdity of what I was accused of, as well as what my partner was accused of. For my own sake, I resolved not to try to persuade these people otherwise. I was simply not going to do it." She still has over 2.4 million followers on Instagram, but her posts can only be commented on by other verified accounts.
