Jodie Comer is "trying not to think too much" about saying goodbye to her Killing Eve character Villanelle.
The actress found fame playing the psychopathic assassin Oksana Astankova/Villanelle, who becomes obsessed with Sandra Oh's MI6 officer Eve Polastri, in the hugely popular spy thriller series in 2018, and she has almost finished filming her episodes for the fourth and final season.
"I'm trying not to think about it too much, honestly," she told U.K. Harper's Bazaar magazine about leaving Villanelle behind. "It's sad, you know? I've been with this character for a really, really long time. I would rather we ended on a good note and kept our integrity, instead of going on and on, and being kicked out the door.
"There are so many layers to Villanelle. She's multifaceted and you can't really pin her down. She's instilled a sense of fearlessness in me. Through playing her, I've had to shed my own self-consciousness."
While the Free Guy star was unable to share many details about the final season, she teased that showrunner Laura Neal has "really pushed the boundaries with Villanelle" and fans can expect to be shocked with one particular scene.
"One of my only requests with season four was that I wanted Villanelle's fire reignited, as I felt it had fizzled out a bit. There is a particular moment that's like nothing we've ever done in Killing Eve," she shared.
