Sandra Oh On What Is In Store For Her Character On The Third Season Of ‘Killing Eve’

New episodes of the third season of the hit series ‘Killing Eve’ premiere every Wednesday night at 20h45 on FOX and continues to entertain viewers with its excellent storylines, brilliant writing and exceptional acting. The series centres on two women; Eve is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle is a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.

As the third season continues the series’ gripping storyline, we get up close with star Sandra Oh as she opens up about what fans can expect this season and a deeper look into Eve’s character.

Where do we meet Eve at the start of series three of Killing Eve?

Eve is in a place of recovery, trauma and trying to heal herself. You see her back to her roots, back to safety and comfort. It’s a new place that we’ve never seen her in before. But she’s also in a place of great strength, even though it might not look it. Weirdly, for the first time, she’s truly independently taking care of herself and doing something specifically for herself.

How do you get into the mindset to play Eve?

Every season there is a certain amount of chaos in our job, in trying to make a television show and make it good. It’s a very mysterious thing but when challenging chaos is present, somehow I’ve been able to use it creatively. Eve’s own life is consumed by chaos – she’s trying to find her way through the mystery of The Twelve and deal with the tremendous chaos and loss that she has undergone. You don’t have to step very far to make something creative from that.

How have the actions of Villanelle affected Eve over the last three seasons and how has that changed her?

So much has affected her relationships. I think the characters, the Eve-Carolyn relationship, the Eve- Villanelle relationship, the Eve-Niko relationship, have really deepened and evolved. Because of my relationships with these specific actors, there’s a lot that happens that is not on the page. That’s a magical part of our show and I give credit to the cast because of how we approach each other. Many of us are similar types of actors in how it costs us to tell the truth and I really admire that. Jodie and I don’t actually spend that much time filming together so it makes the scenes between Eve and Villanelle quite powerful. Jodie and I trust each other very much and we both have our deep understanding of the characters. It’s wonderful when you’re surprised, when everyone thought the scene was about this and then something different happens between the actors.

What can fans expect from Season Three?

Fans can expect a lot of change in Villanelle. It’s quite remarkable where she goes. And for Eve, so much loss. You’ll see what happens when someone is pushed to such an extreme.
