You'd be forgiven for thinking Jodie Comer leads the perfect life. Thanks to her oh-so-glowy skin, impressive career and, well, incredible Killing Eve accents, on paper it might look like she has it all.
But the actress insists she also suffers at the hands of imposter syndrome, namely because of where she comes from in Liverpool.
"I think it's something that is ingrained in you without you even knowing," she told Glamour. "Like [with the actor] Stephen Graham, I always talk about this imposter syndrome because of where you're from.
"It's like, 'Well, actually, no. You have as much right to be there as anybody else with any other kind of background. But I think it is a subconscious thing."
While it feels comforting to hear such a big star talking about having insecurities too, Jodie is absolutely right - nobody should feel negatively defined by their background.
The 27-year-old previously opened up to Radio Times about how she tried to ditch her accent early on in her career, because she thought it would be a hindrance. "When I was much younger, when I was with another agency and really young, I don't know where I got it from, but I thought 'I have to lose my accent'," she recalled.
"And I remember working with Stephen Graham and he was great. He was like, 'Don't you dare lose your accent!' And I didn't. Maybe it's just this idea of being working class from the North West, you don't hear those voices all the time on television."
