Jodie Comer opens up on ‘intimidating’ transition to Hollywood actress: ‘It’s just a million times bigger’

Jodie Comer has opened up on her transition from acting on TV to performing in Hollywood, revealing it was ‘intimidating’.

The actress, best known for her role in the BBC series Killing Eve, stars alongside Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi in new film Free Guy, in which she takes on the role of video game developer Millie.

Speaking to the PA news agency, Jodie admitted it was a big step to break out into Hollywood and ‘realising how huge it is and how much of a machine it is’.

The 28-year-old went on: ‘And I think I’d always kind of told myself that film acting was different to TV acting, and you were either made for one or made for the other, and so it was quite a relief to get there and go, “OK, we’re all working towards the same thing. I prepare the same”.

‘It’s not so different, it’s just a million times bigger. So, I really found my feet as we were filming, which is always the way.

‘It’s really weird, I remember doing season one of Killing Eve, and I didn’t feel like I knew what I was doing until like episode six, which is a long way in.’

Jodie also spoke about her role in Free Guy, saying it explores the ‘heavily male-dominated industry’ of computer gaming, and she hopes the film will ‘shed light on that’ and the experiences that her character has dealt with.

The star also revealed that performing stunts for the film was ‘hard’, and there was a particular scene which she says ‘took like four or five days to film’.

Free Guy follows teller Blue Shirt Guy (Ryan), who is a non-playable character (NPC) living in the open world video game Free City.

After becoming self-aware of the fact that he is living in a video game, he decides to become a hero and save his friends from being deleted by the game’s creator Antwan (Taika).

The movie’s release date had previously been moved around several times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and if the reviews are anything to go by, we can safely say it was worth the wait.

Free Guy is out now in cinemas.
