COLOMBO (News 1st) – “Killing Eve”, the story of a security operative called Eve (Sandra Oh) who is on the hunt for a female assassin Villanelle, became a television phenomenon.
The series, whose first season was written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, was nominated for numerous awards and saw Sandra Oh win best actress awards at both the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild awards.
“It’s been phenomenal,” said Oh at the premiere of the second season in Hollywood on Monday (April 1). She added “It’s really really hard to make good television and in this day and age to actually have a show that breaks through – there are plenty of good shows out there – but to actually break through is very very difficult and I’m fully aware of that and very very proud of it and the second point of how is it socially significant? It just came at the right time, it just came at the right time and that’s to do with luck.”
The other breakout performance is by British actress Jodie Comer, who herself takes on different roles in order to kill.
Comer said at the premiere about the success of the show, “I think it’s got everything to do with Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s voice and her writing. She went against so many stereotypes that we’ve seen on screen and these women are so unapologetically themselves and that enables an audience to connect with them even when they are doing bad things, we relate to it and we understand it and I think that’s really refreshing and people like to be surprised.”
The first season ended with Eve and Villanelle sharing a moment where the dynamic between the two looks set to change.
“Oh they try it out,” said Oh, adding “They try to make in some ways form a new dynamic and I just think they’re just pushed to the limit. They’re just pushed to the limit.”
The second season goes on release on April 7.
