BANG! NEWS – Jodie Comer “loves” that Prince William is a fan of Killing Eve – even though she’s not sure when he has time to watch the BBC drama.
The 26-year-old actress – who plays psychopathic assassin Villanelle in the hit BBC show – was incredibly shocked to find out the Duke of Cambridge watched her show.
Speaking at the Emmys, she told E! News, “I heard about this, I was like, ‘When does he have the time to watch Killing Eve? I mean, I love it!”
Prince William was gifted a pair of the children’s pyjamas worn by Jodie during series two of the programme when he helped to launch the Behind the Screens exhibition at the new BAFTA building
in London. The show’s producer Sally Woodward Gentle said, “Apparently he has watched it all. We didn’t test him, but he did say it was quite a final ending to series two. So at least he watched the last three minutes of the last episode.
“He said he loved it. He talked about the dark humour of it, and Jodie and Sandra Oh, how amazing they both are. And he talked about the humour you can get through the costumes, which is what Phoebe de Gaye is so clever at.”
