Killing Eve star Jodie Comer says fans have asked her to STRANGLE them as they pose for snaps… after admitting there’s ‘more pressure’ on new series
Killing Eve star Jodie Comer has revealed that fans ask her to strangle them as they pose for selfies.
Speaking on Friday’s Graham Norton show the actress, 26, recalled some of the most extreme reactions from die-hard fans who recognised her from the show, with one even asking her to mimic Villanelle’s murderous ways.
It came as Jodie also told Graham that there’s ‘a lot more pressure’ on the second series of the BBC assassin drama, which has already been praised by fans following its premiere in the US.

As she spoke about Killing Eve’s worldwide success, Jodie told Graham that even she’s been stunned by fans’ extreme reactions after meeting her off-screen.
She said: ‘It’s been a good year! A lot of people just look at me in a ‘Is it her’ sort of way, but recently I had a really strange one – a woman asked for a photograph with me and then she whispered in my ear, ”Will you strangle me?” I said, ”No!”’
Jodie then went on to speak about the new series – which is yet to begin airing in the UK – and said fans have had high expectations for the show.
