Who is Jodie Comer?
Jodie was born in Liverpool, Merseyside in the United Kingdom. She grew up in the suburbs of Liverpool in Childwall. Her dad, Jimmy, is a sports massage therapist for Everton FC and her brother now works for Huddersfield FC. Her mother, Donna, works with Merseytravel. Despite being tight-lipped about her family and friends, Jodie admits that;
"Liverpudlians have an amazing sense of humour. They're very loyal and warm. All my family and friends are there (Liverpool), so when I'm not filming, I like to go back and catch up with everyone. We're a very close family."
For her education, the actress graduated from St Julie’s Catholic High School in Woolton, Liverpool. She started acting while in school partly because she finds human emotions fascinating. This led her to start acting professionally at the tender age of thirteen.
Before settling on just acting, she used to do singing, dancing and acting but she later realized that she enjoyed acting more. At fifteen, Steven Graham saw her in a show and later recommended her to his agent. Jodie later chose to leave the agency she was working for and join Steven's agent. This move landed her first big break in the acting world.
Jodie Comer Killing Eve
Based on the novel Codename Villanelle by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve follows the character Villanelle played by Comer. As Villanelle, she has a heavy Russian accent and is very adept at killing people in sometimes gruesome ways with no feelings at all. While she is probably a psychopath, Comer's character is also beautiful, high-class, deadly, sexually fluid and unapologetic in all her actions.
She feels no remorse, has no empathy whatsoever but is also totally adorable and reels in her audience with her antics. Jodie plays her character beautifully and it is no surprise to see that she has won great and noticeable awards for her work in Killing Eve.
Of all the awards for Killing Eve, perhaps the most prestigious ones are her BAFTA TV Award that she was nominated for in 2017 and later won in 2019 and her Primetime Emmy Award. She won both awards under the Lead Actress category.
In Killing Eve, the actress has been cast with the phenomenal Sandra Oh.
Jodie Comer height and measurements
The celebrity is quite tall as she stands at 5 feet 8 inches (173 cm). She weighs 58 kgs (127.8 lbs). The actress has a slim body build. Other Jodie Comer measurements are 34(bust) - 24(waist) - 35(hips). She wears US size 8 shoes.
Jodie Comer boyfriend
While the star as Villanelle in Killing Eve has an adventurous dating and sex life, attracting the attention of both men and women, real-life Comer is quite different. When the first season of Killing Eve aired, the actress said that she had a longtime boyfriend back in her hometown, Liverpool.
"My friends are in Liverpool, I have a boyfriend in Liverpool. He isn't in the industry so this is an interesting job for him to understand."
She remained very tight-lipped about who he was and never revealed his picture or name. However, when the second season came out, the beautiful actress and her boyfriend had broken up. Since then, the star has stated that she has 'zero dating life'. Once in a Jodie Comer interview, the actress attributed her none existent dating life to her psychopathic character on the BBC America show. She said,
"Men don't approach me anymore. I don’t know if it’s particularly because I’ve played a psychopath. I don’t get approached at all. I wanted people to be scared of her. But sometimes when I am introduced to men they are a bit hesitant."
Despite all the misconceptions about her, the real Jodie is a soft-spoken woman who is a home bird that likes hanging out at home with her brother and watching reality television. When she is not hanging out with her brother, she loves spending time with friends, especially her best friend Katarina Johnson-Thompson.
