Killing Eve Sandra Oh
  • Sandra Oh revealed in a recent interview that she had originally pitched for her own character, Eve Polastri, to die in the season finale of her spy thriller TV series “Killing Eve.”
  • Fans were left devastated last month after witnessing the unexpected death of Villanelle, the main antagonist and Polastri’s love interest, in the show’s fourth and final season.
  • In an interview with Deadline’s chief film critic and awards columnist Pete Hammond, Oh revealed that this was not her preferred ending: “Honestly, it was going to be the other way around. … I was like, you should kill my character. I thought that was going to be the strongest and most interesting [ending].”
  • The COVID-19 pandemic changed everything, and the show’s writers told Oh that Eve had to live.
  • “Eve is the way into this world, she’s our everywoman,” Oh explained. “So it’s kind of really super depressing if she dies. So we switched it around and Jodie [Comer] was very much on board with that.”
  • “Killing Eve” follows the story of bored M15 security officer Eve Polastri, played by Oh. When Polastri is recruited by a special British investigation team and tasked with catching psychopathic assassin Villanelle, played by Jodie Comer, she is thrown into an all-consuming game of cat and mouse.
