In Liverpool, England, on March 11, 1993, Jodie Marie Comer was born. Jodie, who grew up in the Childwall area, went to school at a Catholic institution in Woolton where she met Katarina Johnson-Thompson, a future Olympian. She began acting for the first time during this time and also began learning to sing and dance. She competed in the Liverpool Performing Arts Festival that year, and her monologue about the Hillsborough Disaster earned her first place.
During this period, she was a member of a dancing company as well, but she was finally expelled for missing practise. She decided to concentrate on acting as a result, and a theatre teacher noticed her right away. She was subsequently sent for her first audition by this theatre teacher, which she passed. Then, Jodie was strongly advised to find an agent. She started to pursue a career as an actor after taking this advice.
Comer’s career started off reasonably well despite what she later referred to as “class prejudice.” She secured an early part in “The Royal Today” in 2008. She later continued her acting career by appearing in additional TV shows like “Waterloo Road,” “Holby City,” “Doctors,” “Silent Witness,” “Casualty,” “Law & Order: UK,” “Vera,” and “Inspector George Gently.” “Justice” gave Comer one of her first main roles, and she soon secured another one in “Remember Me.” With yet another prominent part in the comedy-drama series “My Fat Diary,” she maintained her buzz. With the TV movie “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” in 2015, a movie role finally arrived.
Some would say that her big break came in 2015, shortly after landing a part in “Doctor Foster,” when she landed the lead in the miniseries “Thirteen.” She was nominated for a British Academy Television Award for “Thirteen,” which subsequently brought her a prominent role in the miniseries “Rillington Place.” She was already being hailed as the next great thing; one journal even referred to her as one of the “stars of tomorrow.” Jodie secured a second part in the miniseries “The White Princess” in 2017, and she made her feature film debut in “England is Mine.”
Jodie Comer secured one of her most important career-defining roles in “Killing Eve” in 2018. She portrays a Russian assassin named Villanelle. She received a lot of applause from critics for this performance because the character was called “mercurial” and “unassailable.” Comer received recognition for using a variety of accents in this role. She was also a nominee for a number of honours, including three British Academy Television Awards and two Primetime Emmys. In 2019, she eventually took home one of each.
Comer has managed to fit in time to feature in a variety of other projects in addition to his role in “Killing Eve.” She made a fleeting appearance in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” and she landed the lead role in one “Talking Heads” episode. She joined the cast of the 2018 motion picture “Free Guy,” where she starred alongside Ryan Reynolds as the female lead. She performed one of the songs on the soundtrack as well as two other roles in this movie.
She collaborated with Stephen Graham to appear in the new series “Help” in 2021. Comer also acted as this series’ executive producer. She starred in Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel” in 2021 opposite Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Ben Affleck. Despite being regarded as one of the best movies of 2021, the picture had a dismal box office performance, earning just over $30 million against a $100 million budget. Ridley Scott attributed this failure to the lack of interest in history among the millennial age.
Over the years, Jodie Comer has added a number of brand endorsements to her acting resume. Shortly after winning her Emmy, she was chosen as the new face of the Loewe Spring/Summer fashion campaign in 2019. She was named the new Noble Panacea skincare brand ambassador in 2020.
Jodie Comer decided to stay with her parents for a long period. She reportedly announced in 2019 that she was leaving her Liverpool house of many years. The 25-year-old was reportedly haggling over the price of a posh two-bedroom apartment close to Liverpool’s Albert Dock. Comer reportedly wanted to invest in real estate while still living close by so she could visit for dinners with her parents.
