‘Killing Eve’ slays com­pe­ti­tion at Bri­tish TV awards

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

Sharp-edged spy thriller “Killing Eve” has won three ma­jor tro­phies at the Bri­tish Academy Tele­vi­sion Awards, in­clud­ing best drama se­ries.

Jodie Comer was named best ac­tress for her per­for­mance as ruth­less as­sas­sin Vil­lanelle. She beat co-star San­dra Oh, who plays Vil­lanelle’s se­cret-agent neme­sis Eve.

Fiona Shaw was named best sup­port­ing ac­tress on Sun­day for play­ing a spy chief in the BBC se­ries.

The show’s cre­ator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, thanked her cast “for tak­ing risks. Jodie Comer al­most swal­lowed a wasp in Tus­cany. It was a re­ally edgy mo­ment that we did cap­ture on camera.”
