Jodie Comer’s Hollywood rejections made her fearful of pursuing a career: ‘We all have insecurities,’ she says.
JODIE COMER discussed her fears of never being able to act in a movie.
Jodie Comer, a 28-year-old British actress, has gained international acclaim for a number of roles.
The Liverpudlian has a long list of TV and film credits, but she admitted that she was unsure whether she would ever be accepted into Hollywood before landing her big screen debut in 2017.
I believe that people must see it to believe it.
Jodie Comer is an actress who has appeared in several films.
She is perhaps best known for her role as Villanelle, a charismatic psychopath in the BBC America drama Killing Eve, which aired for seven seasons.
At the age of 26, her portrayal of the Russian assassin made her the youngest-ever winner of the Emmy for best actress in a drama series.
She also starred in the E4 comedy-drama series My Mad Fat Diary, Doctor Foster, Thirteen, Elizabeth of York, and The White Princess, among others.
She most recently appeared on television in the Channel 4 short film Help, which she co-starred in with Stephen Graham in 2021.
During the height of the coronavirus pandemic, care homes in the UK faced enormous pressure and harrowing struggles, as depicted in this moving film.
She also landed her first lead role in a major studio Hollywood film, Free Guy, with Ryan Reynolds, last year.
She’s now a front-runner for an Academy Award for her performance in Ridley Scott’s film The Last Duel as a 14th-century woman who dares to accuse a man of rape.
Jodie spoke about previous film auditions that she was turned down for, and how it made her wonder if she was destined to be a TV actress instead, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast Award’s Chatter.
However, the actress, who is regarded as “a generational talent” by Jason Bourne star Matt Damon, reflected on how she never imagined any of this would happen before her meteoric rise to fame in Hollywood.
When asked if she believed she would be remembered as a TV actress in people’s minds, she admitted that she used to be afraid of not being able to act in films.
“After going to many, many film auditions and not getting the part, I thought to myself, ‘Oh gosh… maybe I’m a television actress!’
“I was thinking this.”
Jodie, on the other hand, was successful.
