Sandra Oh on her ‘Killing Eve’ Chemistry With Jodie Comer
Everybody is excited about the third Killing Eve season, especially after that epic lesbian wedding in the season opener.
While Oh is not a lesbian in real life (she currently lives with her boyfriend) she brilliantly portrays one on the screen.
Killing Eve’s viewers love the never-ending love/hate story between Eve Polastri, the MI6 agent portrayed by Sandra Oh, and Villanelle, the assassin played by Jodie Comer.

And actress Oh says that the main secret to keeping the characters’ relationship as interesting as it is, is by maintaining a sense of mystery.
We really dive into the relationship. We both understand there’s a lot of mystery between Eve and Villanelle and we play it as such. Usually what happens is, story-wise, Eve and Villanelle are kept apart and at a certain point they crash into each other, then have their storyline together.
Sandra Oh, who played Cristina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy for 10 seasons has grown very fond of her co-star.
She describes Jodie as being “profound” and they “trust each other when the magic is happening.”
Oh is also very impressed by Jodie’s ear for accents.
Jodie has a remarkable ear. She is so talented. When you hear what she really sounds like you’re blown away.
As the situation with the COVID-19 is still very uncertain, no one knows exactly when they’ll go back on set for season four.
We are scheduled to go back to Killing Eve in September, but we don’t know. Our show is international. You can’t shoot Africa in Scotland, for example. And we don’t know what is going on with Scotland.
Sandra Oh Believes That Killing Eve Will Entertain People Staying At Home
Oh agrees that the times we’re living are tense right now, but she is hopeful regarding the future.
The new Killing Eve episodes will definitely provide some entertainment to the people staying at home.
For us, globally, this month is very tense. And the fact that the show is coming earlier and hopefully providing a little respite, a positive distraction, and energy for people while they are sheltering inside, I’m really grateful for.
It’s nice to see positive views on the situation, and we’re all hoping that this global situation will be over soon, and we will all go back to our normal lives!
