Who Is Jodie Comer? What's Her Net Worth, Age And Who's Her Boyfriend?
Jodie Comer is best known for playing Villanelle on the BBC drama, Killing Eve. As the third season approaches, we decided to do a bit of digging to find out all about the impressive actor.
She was born in Liverpool on 11 March 1993, making her 26 years old. She attended St Julie's Catholic High School in Woolton, Liverpool and came to the attention of her drama teacher when she entered her school's talent show competition. She landed her first acting role after auditioning for a BBC Radio 4 play.
Comer is loud and proud about her heritage, and often talks about her love for Liverpool. She told Stylist: "When I was starting out I got really paranoid about having to lose my accent. Now I'm so glad I never succumbed to that pressure.
"I love home, I love the people there. It's a huge part of who I am."
As many actors do, she began landing smaller roles in UK shows such as Holby City, Waterloo Road, The Last Bite, Casualty, Coming Up, Good Cop, Silent Witness, Doctors, and Justice. She told the Evening Standard that she'd tried other routes as well as acting: "I used to do singing, dancing and acting, but as I got older, I realised acting was what I enjoyed. Plus I grew lanky and completely lost all my rhythm".
She then upped her game by acting in several notable shows such as Thirteen, Doctor Foster, Lady Chatterley's Lover, Rillington Place, The White Princess and then My Mad Fat Diary.
Career after 2018
The year 2018 was a fantastic year for Jodie. Not only did she land the leading role of a Russian assassin called Villanelle in the TV show Killing Eve, but she was also cast in the action comedy Free Guy opposite A-list celebrity Ryan Reynolds. It was also announced that she would star in the Death Of The Nile film adaptation opposite Gal Gadot, Kenneth Branagh and Armie Hammer.
Despite her fame, Comer admitted that she still lives at home. In 2018, she said: "I live in Liverpool, still at home with my mum and dad. I get the best of both worlds. I'm here now for six months [filming in London], but as soon as that six months is over, there's nowhere else I want to go other than home...
"I just love Liverpool. I love London, but I like to leave."
Who's her boyfriend?
Jodie split with her long term boyfriend in March and says she has had zero dates since. "It's ok though, as I'm rarely in the same place for long," she says.
According to cheatsheet.com, Jodie Comer's Net worth is currently reported to be around $1 million (£860k). This is made up of earning from roles on BBC shows and TV appearances.
Keep your eye out for the release of Killing Eve season 3 - Comer's star is well on the rise and she's becoming a household name as well as a firm favourite with viewers.
