Killing Eve star Jodie Comer takes the cover of British Elle Magazine‘s May 2019 edition captured by fashion photographer Mariana Maltoni. Styling is work of Jenny Kennedy, who for the cover selected look from Prada. In charge of creative direction was Tom Meredith, with beauty from makeup artist Celia Burton, and hair stylist Nao Kawakami.
“The thing is, she could easily be just a murderous villain, but there are so many loveable qualities about her. When I first read the script and I read ‘assassin’, I thought, ‘Ah, f*ck, I’m not an assassin’ – the stereotype of what a female assassin is – and I felt a bit deflated. But I related to Villanelle. There were so many moments from scene one, such as when she flicks the ice cream on that six-year-old. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’ve wanted to do this so many times but I never have.’ I strangely respect it, the dark corners of our minds that we have to bring to the forefront.” – Jodie Comer on Killing Eve’s Villanelle.
