Jodie Comer officially becomes a millionaire after Killing Eve success
KILLING Eve’s Jodie Comer has made a different kind of killing, after becoming a millionaire.
The actress, 28, who stars as the assassin Villanelle in the BBC show has banked £912,406 this year.
Paperwork for the star’s company Jodesco Limited, set up last year to handle her acting pay, shows she has £872,809 cash in the bank and is owed a further £39,577.
On top of the money she has made in previous years, it means she now has more than £1million.
Jodie is set to see her wealth grow further with a series of bonanza paydays, as her star continues to rise.
She recently completed filming for the final season of Killing Eve, due to hit screens next year, and will star in Ridley Scott’s blockbuster Kitbag about Napoleon Bonaparte.
Jodie is also believed to have made a six-figure sum by signing up as the face of skincare brand Noble Panacea last year.
The Liverpool-born actress has won a Bafta and an Emmy for her role in Killing Eve since it launched in 2018.
She has recently starred in comedy Free Guy alongside Ryan Reynolds and also The Last Duel with Matt Damon and Adam Driver.
In September, Jodie spoke of the fun she has had playing assassin Villanelle during an interview on ITV's This Morning.
The popular cat-and-mouse thriller, starring the British actress as the Russian assassin and Sandra Oh as now-former MI5 agent Eve Polastri, will end with its fourth series, due to premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in 2022.
Jodie said at the time: “The thing that I will miss the most is not having to apologise for anything.
"All the mischief that I get away with, there’s something just so fun about that.”
Elsewhere, Jodie received much acclaim for role in Channel 4 drama Help alongside her friend Stephen Graham.
Written by Jack Thorne and directed by Marc Munden, Help is set in a fictional Liverpool care home in spring 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic begins to affect both its staff and patients.
The story focuses on Sarah (Jodie), a young care worker who forms a bond with a 47-year-old patient Tony (Stephen) who has early onset Alzheimers.
Her success in establishing a rapport with Tony helps build her confidence, and restores her self belief, but when the pandemic hits in March 2020 everything Sarah has achieved is thrown into doubt.
Help provides an insight into the struggles faced by care workers and patients across the country.
