Jodie Comer was the victim of harassment by a 44-year-old man from Roubaix. The actress lodged a complaint after the man was threatening. He was taken into custody.
Jodie Comer, revelation of Killing Eve
Jodie Comer has had a rapid rise in recent years. Noticed with the miniseries The White Princess (2017), it exploded internationally in 2018 with series Killing Eve. In it, she plays Villanelle, a psychopathic killer to say the least original. When MI-5 agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) is hired to hunt her down, she develops an obsession with her. Uneven, the series applies above all to this character of Villanelle and the crazy interpretation of Jodie Comer. The actress also received in 2019 theEmmy Awards for Best Actress.
But if we appreciate to see in the series this game of the cat and the mouse set up by Villanelle, it is much less fun in reality. This is unfortunately what happened to Jodie Comer, victim of harassment by a resident of Roubaix.
From fiction to reality
The French would have developed a fascination for the actress and first sent him several messages on social networks. In the absence of any answers, he would have subsequently found her personal contact details and sought to reach her by also sending messages to members of her family. Things took a different turn when the 44-year-old was threatening. Based on information from France blue, he would have said he was ready to go to England for “make a carnage“.
Jodie Comer has therefore lodged a complaint in recent weeks and the English justice, with the help of the Lille prosecutor’s office, has placed the man in custody. We hope that the story will end there and that the actress can concentrate on her personal life and her work.
Soon, we will find her in the cast of Ridley Scott’s film, The Last Duel. A historical drama that takes place in the 14th century in which she plays Marguerite de Thibouville, a woman who accuses a squire of having raped her.
She is also expected to participate in the film Kitbag, still by Ridley Scott, on the youth of Napoleon Bonaparte. But before that she will be in a duet with Ryan Reynolds in the comedy Free Guy, planned for August 11 in the rooms.
