Killing Eve star Jodie Comer has said she was "terrified" by premieres and photoshoots when the show first became a worldwide success.

Comer, who has since appeared on the cover of high-end fashion magazines Vogue and Elle, said she learned to "surrender" to the global recognition and not take it too seriously. 

The 27-year-old actress said: "I lead a very normal life. My job has a different side to it, which is in the public domain and you were able to experience these very other-worldly... premieres and magazine shoots, which I'm actually having so much fun with now.

"I was kind of terrified of all that when I started out, and now I'm like: 'Ah OK.'

"The more that you kind of surrender to it and have fun and not take yourself too seriously, the more enjoyable it can all be.

"So yeah, you've just got to take it in your stride, and not overthink it too much, I think."

Comer was recently in France filming Sir Ridley Scott's new historical drama The Last Duel, which also stars Matt Damon, Adam Driver and Ben Affleck.

However, filming was called off due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Comer added: "I was filming. I was shooting a film with Ridley Scott which has now been put on hiatus, like the rest of the world.

"And as much as I'd want to definitely be carrying on with that, I've actually been able to come home, unpack like seven suitcases because I haven't been here, and I've thrown out so much rubbish.

"And actually to have a bit of stillness, and be stationary, I'm actually really kind of... I'm a bit embarrassed to say I'm kind of enjoying it.

"But then, it's like I was saying before, it's week one for me, and I've got friends who are on week three, and they're pulling their hair out.

"So, you can come back and ask me that in a couple of weeks and I'm sure the answer may be very different."
