One weird thing about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is that it really makes us all have this collective experience. It’s very scary, real, and serious, and at the same time, everyone is urged to stay home, celebrities included. So what are the two leads of Killing Eve doing during quarantine? Trying their hardest not to have an anxiety attack. Celebrities: they’re just like us, right?
Jodie Comer is spending some much-needed time at home with her family
While Villanelle is all style and Russian and elusive on the show, Jodie Comer seems pretty different. Starting with how she sounds; her Liverpudlian accent being a real shocker for most who’ve never heard her real accent before. But, overall she’s, of course, not the serial killer she plays on TV. And unlike Villanelle, she loves to spend time with her family, which she’s taking advantage of during quarantine.
“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,” she told Press Association, according to Hello Magazine. “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.“

Even though some people have gotten into crafts or painting, Comer admits she hasn’t really done that. But for someone who acts as completely different people for a living, her creative side gets out quite a lot other times of the year.
As for how she’s handling her mental health during this time, Comer told the outlet that she’s really trying not to focus on things that stress her “too much.”
“I feel like when things are out of your hands you just have to try and surrender to it,” Comer said. “In all honesty my family are healthy and I feel as though I cannot complain. I’ve been told to stay in my house and spend time with my family who I see a lot less now so I’m finding a lot of…
