She explains: “We went to a TV festival in Cannes, we were all having a little drink and they were like, ‘ Just so you know, when this goes out it might get a bit crazy’. I’m around Sandra a lot, she gets recognised everywhere and I can see how intense that can be.
“I’m in no way in that kind of bracket but they were like, ‘ This is something you need to be more aware of ’. They gave me a heads up.” Series two of Killing Eve – set to be on the BBC in late spring – has Sandra’s character Eve Polastri still hunting wounded killer Villanelle.
But Jodie insists yet more fame won’t be going to her head, adding: “If I ever did get too big for my boots my mum and dad would tell me straight away... and my brother!”
