Killing Eve immediately hooked viewers when it premiered in 2018. People are downright obsessed with the cat-and-mouse story of MI6 agent Eve Polastri’s twisted (and mutual) obsession with assassin Villanelle. After much anticipation from fans, the show will return for Season 2 on April 7th. Recently, stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about the new season, and in the interview, Comer revealed that she had a particularly scary—and life-threatening—experience on set.
For some background, Comer plays Villanelle—a woman who has been hit in the face with a Scotch glass, ridden a motorcycle, and scaled literal buildings. But ironically, a pasta-eating scene is what almost took her down. When the interviewer brought up the incident, the 25-year-old actress said that it was “really triggering,” although it seems like she can laugh about it now.
She elaborated, revealing that during one scene, while her character was eating pasta “in a very grotesque way,” she started choking.
We’re just glad that Comer is okay.
Comer and Oh also shared more details about the predator vs. predator dynamic of Killing Eve Season 2. Oh said that Villanelle is is angry, clarifying:
We absolutely can’t wait for the upcoming season.
