Jodie Comer Instagram: Her Life Behind The Scenes

The Liverpool actress has shot to fame playing the psychopathic assassin Villanelle. Looking at Jodie Comer’s Instagram, we’re seeing what her life is like behind the scenes.

Being included in the list of Vogue’s “Most Influential Girls of 2018“, Comer is going from strength to strength in being a super female role model.

Plus, it is safe to say that that Comer‘s character’s fashion definitely extends into her personal life. So, just what do we know about this scouse superstar?

What Was She In Before Killing Eve?

Jodie Comer grew up in Liverpool, attending St Julie’s Catholic High School in Woolton. It was her drama teacher at this school who sent her to audition for a BBC Radio 4 play which turned out to be her first acting job.

On Instagram, Jodie posted this snapshot of her first ever headshots.

After her professional career began in 2008, Jodie Comer’s TV show appearances included Waterloo Road, Holby City, Doctors, Silent Witness, Casualty, Law & Order, Vera and My Mad Fat Diary. 

Continuing her upwardly successful career, she appeared in Lady Chatterly’s Lover and Doctor Foster before securing her first starring role in the BBC 3 series Thirteen. Playing the role of Ivy Moxam, she received a nomination for Best Actress at the British Academy Television Awards.

In 2016, Comer portrayed the role of Beryl in Rillington Place; a three-part series about serial killer John Christie and a year later was cast as Elizabeth of York in The White Princess.

Who Are Her Family?

Jodie Comer has a brother called Charlie who has made the odd appearance on her Instagram feed.

She calls him the ‘clever clogs’ of the family on what appears to be his graduation day.

As of 2019, Comer is believed to still live with her parents in Liverpool where her dad works for Everton Football Club as a sports massage therapist. Her brother works for Huddersfield FC as an analyst.

In interviews, Comer has spoken about her experience of classism and imposter syndrome as directors and producers have asked if she can lose her accent. Many have been surprised at her ability to act and adopt different accents.

She also publicly thanked Liverpudlian actor Stephen Graham as he recommended her to his agent after he had seen her perform in a play when she was just 15.

Comer posted this snap on Instagram of her and her mum attending the BAFTA awards with her mum.

On her Instagram, we see Comer appear on plenty of magazine covers as she has impressively shot to fame having been acting since the age of thirteen.

However, we rarely see any snaps of her personal life. Comer explains:

“I’ve seen comments where people say, all you do is post work stuff. And it’s so hard, because I understand that it’s about balance and engaging with the people who support you, but I also have to be protective of my own world, you know?”

“It’s an adjustment. Doing gorgeous glamorous magazine shoots and all the rest of it, that is a part of this world that you don’t know about until it happens.”

Jodie is an open supporter of Girls vs Cancer posting a snap of her wearing a ‘tit-tee.

Comer wrote:

“Ladies, head over to the @girlvscancer page and check out the work that Lauren and her team are doing to help provide comfort and raise awareness for women affected by cancer. She has created a safe space in which women can offer support to one another and communicate. Enabling them to not feel so alone in what can be an incredibly isolating situation.”
