Early life

Jodie Comer, the daughter of Merseyrail employee Donna Comer and Everton FC physiotherapist James Comer. She grew up in Liverpool’s Childwall suburb. She has a younger brother named Charlie (born in 1995). She attended St Julie’s Catholic High School in the Liverpool suburb of Woolton, where she became close friends with future Olympic athlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson. She started acting at a local weekend drama school called CALS in the Belle Vale area of Liverpool when she was 11 years old, and it was through this school that she entered the Liverpool Performing Arts Festival in 2006 at St George’s Hall and came first in her category after performing a monologue about the Hillsborough Disaster.

Comer’s friends kicked her out of their high school dance group because a holiday with her family clashed with rehearsals for the school’s talent show, and she instead decided to perform the monologue for the show. Although she did not win, her performance prompted the school’s drama teacher to call in a favour from friends in the entertainment industry that would allow her to audition for a BBC Radio 4 play. This would become her first acting job, with her co-stars in the play advising her to get an agent and telling her that she could have a successful acting career.

Career

Career beginnings (2008–2017)

Comer’s career began in 2008 with a guest role on an episode of The Royal Today, a spin-off series of the medical drama series The Royal. She then made appearances in series such as Waterloo Road, Holby City, Doctors, Silent Witness, Casualty, Law & Order: UK, Vera, and Inspector George Gently. She was cast in leading roles in the five-episode drama series Justice, the supernatural miniseries Remember Me, and as Chloe Gemell in the E4 comedy-drama series My Mad Fat Diary. Comer appeared in the 2015 adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover, a television film broadcast on BBC One. In the same year, Comer appeared as Kate Parks in the BBC One drama series Doctor Foster.

Comer was cast in her first starring role as Ivy Moxam in the BBC Three miniseries Thirteen, which premiered in February 2016 and earned her a nomination for the British Academy Television Award for Best Actress. In December 2016, she appeared in the BBC miniseries Rillington Place as Beryl Evans, one of serial killer John Christie‘s victims. In 2016, Comer was listed as one of Screen International’s “Stars of Tomorrow” in association with the BFI London Film Festival. In 2017, she 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 made her feature film debut, as Christine in the Morrissey biopic England Is Mine.

Killing Eve and worldwide recognition (2018–2021)

In April 2018, Comer began starring in the BBC spy thriller series Killing Eve as Villanelle, a sociopathic Russian assassin who develops a mutual obsession with Eve Polastri (played by Sandra Oh), the MI6 agent tasked with pursuing her. Comer garnered universal critical acclaim for her performance on the series, with Jia Tolentino of The New Yorker stating 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”. Due to her character swapping between multiple accents from around the world as part of her various disguises, much attention has been given to Comer’s native Scouse accent and the surprise of viewers who hear it for the first time. For her portrayal of Villanelle, Comer has been nominated for three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and three British Academy Television Awards for Best Actress, with her winning both in 2019.

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. Comer was ranked No. 94 on the Radio Times “TV 100” list for 2018. In November 2018, The Hollywood Reporter included her in their “Next Gen Talent 2018: Hollywood’s Rising Young Stars” list. In April 2019, Comer was asked about upcoming work during her Happy Sad Confused podcast interview and revealed that she had been forced to drop out of Kenneth Branagh‘s adaptation of Agatha Christie‘s Death on the Nile due to scheduling conflicts.

Comer performed a cameo in the 2019 film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, appearing as Rey‘s mother Miramir in flashbacks. In June 2020, Comer played the lead role of Lesley in a BBC iPlayer reboot of the Talking Heads episode “Her Big Chance“. The episode, directed by Josie Rourke, was filmed in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Comer next appeared in the action comedy film Free Guy alongside Ryan Reynolds, in which she played two roles: Millie, a games developer, and Molotov Girl, Millie’s in-game avatar. The film was released on 13 August 2021. It later debuted on Disney+ for home viewers on 23 February 2022. A cover version of Mariah Carey song “Fantasy” sung by Comer was used in the film. For this role, she was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Later in 2021, Comer teamed with writer Jack Thorne and actor Stephen Graham to star in the Channel 4 drama Help, in which she played a young care home worker struggling during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK. She also acted as an executive producer. The role earned her a fifth British Academy Television Awards for Best Actress nomination which she ultimately won. Comer portrayed Marguerite de Carrouges in Ridley Scott‘s The Last Duel alongside Matt Damon, Adam Driver and Ben Affleck. The film was released worldwide on 15 October 2021.

Prima Facie and further accolades (2022–present)

Comer made her West End debut in Suzie Miller’s one-woman play Prima Facie at the Harold Pinter Theatre which started in April 2022 and concluded in June 2022. For the role as criminal defense barrister Tessa Ensler, Comer received significant critical acclaim. Comer made her Broadway debut with Prima Facie when the production transferred from the West End, in spring 2023. Starting 21 July 2022, a filmed performance of the play at the Harold Pinter Theatre was shown at cinemas around the world by NT Live. For her performance, she won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress and the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play.

In 2023, Comer starred alongside Austin Butler and Tom Hardy in Jeff NicholsThe Bikeriders, a drama inspired by the photography of Danny Lyon and his 1967 book of the same name. Comer later revealed that she took up smoking to deliver a more authentic performance for her role in the movie, only to accidentally singe her eyebrows. She then starred in and produced the environmental thriller The End We Start From, an adaptation of Megan Hunter‘s debut novel, directed by Mahalia Belo. Both films received generally positive reviews.

Acting philosophy and technique

Comer is often considered to be one of the finest actors of her generation. She has stated that the performances she takes on have affected her mental state, claiming, “I guess I was naive to think that something wouldn’t filter through from work to life eventually, even if you’re not conscious of it.” Comer has been commended for her ability to perform multiple accents throughout her projects.

On what attracts her to roles, Comer said, “[If I know] why I’m stepping into it and know what I gain from the experience, then if it goes out into the world and people hate it or it completely goes unnoticed or it’s a huge success, it doesn’t matter… That doesn’t change my experience and how I felt.”

In September 2019, a few days after her Emmy win, it was announced that Comer would be the face of the Loewe spring/summer 2020 fashion campaign, which saw her star in a short film for the brand that consisted of her repeating the brand’s name with different emotions. In March 2020, Comer was announced as the brand ambassador for skin-care brand Noble Panacea.

Comer is known for guarding her private life and relationships. In 2020, she discussed the class discrimination she experienced during her career as someone from a working-class city.

Quotes:

“When you wear the costumes in a period drama, you already feel like a different person – the clothes make you stand differently, change your posture, the way you walk. You really have to have stamina – you have two hours in hair and makeup, and then another hour to remove all that.”

“In ‘The White Princess,’ the women are leading the story, and they’re holding everything together. It’s definitely a world of women’s empowerment.”

“My mum used to always say to me, ‘What’s meant for you won’t pass you by,’ and it’s true. If I didn’t get something, it wasn’t meant for me.”

“The White Princess’ follows Princess Lizzie, who was forced into marriage with Henry Tudor. It’s kind of about how their marriage united the Yorks and the Tudors – the two families do rival but have to unite.”

“I’m really into boots.”
