Jodie Comer became famous when she played Villanelle in the big success series Killing Eve – but how did she become a globally recognized star?
The Liverpool actress has received critical acclaim for the role and even pocketed her BAFTA for the Main Actress at the 2019 award ceremony.
Now a household name, with upcoming roles dealing with Hollywood giants including Matt Damon and Ryan Reynolds in the work, as well as the prestigious Vogue cover under his belt, the sky is the limit for young players.
But how did Jodie move from working at Tesco to all global superstardom before the age of 30?
But it was abandoned from the school’s talent show that put Jodie on the road to fame.
At the age of 14, he would do a routine dance from the Chicago Broadway musical with his school friends but after skipping practice for a family vacation, his friends kicked him out.
Jodie said in an interview with Build NYC Series that he was “totally devastated”, but had a monologue prepared for the Liverpool Drama Festival whose mother encouraged him to appear on talent shows as well.
After his monologue on the school talent show, he was encouraged to pursue a career in acting and a drama teacher sent him to audition for BBC Radio drama, which later became his first professional acting job.
In an interview with W magazine, the actress said: “My first professional audition was for radio plays in Manchester. That was the first audition I got.
“That was my first paid job, which, in my opinion, was £ 150, and I thought it was megabucks.”
An actor in a radio drama introduced Jodie to an agent and things began to change for the young star.
When he was working towards a major breakthrough, Jodie worked at Tesco in the West Derby so some of us might have been served by him at one point.
He also spent a little time working at the bar collecting glasses before his acting career took off.
But Jodie was quickly on the path to big things and then appeared on famous events including Holby City and Waterloo Road, before becoming a star when another woman, Kate Parks, was in an important role in Doctor Foster.
While shooting a scene in Good Cop in 2012 with actor Kirkby Stephen Graham, Jodie’s career changed.
He was so impressed with Jodie’s acting that he called his agent Jane Epstein to arrange an introduction.
Epstein held a meeting with Jodie and later became his agent, who began his acting career and headed for an audition for the role of Villanelle.
When Jodie won the BAFTA award for Killing Eve last year, he thanked Graham for introducing him to Epstein and making his career possible.
Jodie is still a lover of her hometown.
His best choices in Liverpool include the Bunch Wine Bar on Berry Street, which he said is the best place to drink a glass of wine and Bold Street Coffee which, according to Jodie, is “the best coffee in town”.
Jodie’s latest film, Free Guy, starring with Ryan Reynolds, will be out later this year.
