Jodie Comer (born 11 March 1993) is an English actress, known for her roles as the assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve, Chloe Gemell in the comedy-drama series My Mad Fat Diary, Ivy Moxam in the BBC Three miniseries Thirteen, Kate Parks in Doctor Foster and as Elizabeth of York in the miniseries The White Princess.
Jodie Comer was born on 11 March 1993 in Liverpool, England. She attended a weekend drama school and performed at her school, St Julie's Catholic High School, in Woolton, Liverpool. After being excluded for not being able to attend dance rehearsals for a school talent show, she came to the attention of her drama teacher when she entered the competition solo, performing a monologue that had previously won her first place at a local drama festival. This led to her being sent to audition for a BBC Radio 4 play and a role that was her first acting job. Others working on the play told her she could make a career out of acting and advised her to engage an agent.
Comer's television career began in 2008 when she had a part in The Royal Today, a spin-off series of The Royal. She then made appearances in Holby City, Doctors, Silent Witness, Casualty, Law & Order: UK, Vera and Inspector George Gently.
She was then cast in leading roles in the five-episode drama series Justice, the supernatural miniseries, Remember Me and the E4 comedy-drama series, My Mad Fat Diary where she appeared for three seasons as Chloe Gemell.
Comer appeared in the 2015 adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover, a television film broadcast on BBC One. In 2015, she also appeared in the BBC One drama series Doctor Foster as Kate Parks and was cast in the BBC Three miniseries, Thirteen which premiered on BBC Three on 28 February 2016. In 2016, Comer was listed as one of Screen International’s Stars of Tomorrow in association with BFI London Film Festival.
In 2017, Comer starred as a young Elizabeth of York in The White Princess on Starz, a sequel to the BBC miniseries The White Queen. In 2017 she also starred in her first feature film, the Morrissey biopic England is Mine, as Christine.
In April 2018, Comer began a leading role in Phoebe Waller-Bridge's BBC America spy thriller series Killing Eve, portraying a psychopathic assassin, Villanelle, who develops a mutual fascination with her MI5 pursuer (Sandra Oh). The series had already been renewed for a second season before its première. Jia Tolentino wrote in The New Yorker that, in the context of the show's "constant reversals in tone and rhythm", the "ambiguity—and impossibility—of Villanelle’s character has worked (through the first season) thanks to Comer’s mercurial, unassailable charisma".
In June 2018, Comer was one of the actresses in a series of BBC Four monologues called Snatches: Moments From Women's Lives, inspired by events that took place in the century since women first won the vote. Comer appeared in the episode Bovril Pam where she portrayed a secretary in 1960s Liverpool exploring her sexuality; the episode was written by Vicky Jones.
Comer was number 94 on the "Radio Times TV 100" list for 2018, a list said to be determined by television executives and broadcasting veterans. In November 2018 “The Hollywood Reporter included her in their “Next Gen Talent 2018: Hollywood’s Rising Young Stars” List.
