With the fourth and final series of Killing Eve set to land on our screens in just a few months (hopefully) we're not really sure we're ready to wave goodbye to Villanelle, Eve, Konstantin and Carolyn just yet, but we know we're going to have to come to terms with it. Jodie Comer aka Villanelle herself, however, seems pretty ready to leave the role behind, at least when people ask her to do the accent on demand. Something which, she revealed in a recent interview makes her "toes curl".

The Russian character became a pop culture icon almost overnight and with it, the accent that we've all got so used to it's hard to remember that Jodie Comer doesn't sound like this in real life.

Speaking to Time Out the actor revealed that people often ask her to do her Villanelle accent while on nights out, and she's not a massive fan.

"Sometimes I get asked to do it if I'm out in a bar and someone's had a couple of drinks. My insides just go: 'Urghhh' and my toes curl up. So no, I never get that one out – only when I'm on set and they say 'action.'

Comer also spoke about filming Help with fellow Scouse icon Stephen Graham, calling him "mischievous," and adding, "He doesn't take himself too seriously, which I love. When you think of how crazy talented that man is and he's so modest, unassuming and a lot of fun."

We're just gonna put it out there: how about a Killing Eve spin off starring the both of them? We're so, so in.
