UK Vogue Magazine April 2020: JODIE COMER Killing Eve Cover



Jodie Comer Covers The April Issue Of British Vogue

As ever, extraordinary women feature throughout our pages, and I am especially taken with this issue’s subjects. Meet British actor Lashana Lynch, talking for the first time about her role in No Time to Die – the 25th instalment in the James Bond franchise will be in cinemas this April. No end of media coverage in recent years has been given over to the questions, “Could Bond be a woman?” or “Could Bond be black?”. Portraying the first black female spy with “00” status to feature in the beloved series, Lynch is reigniting this fascinating debate, and marking her arrival as a major screen talent.

In fact, talent abounds. After another impeccable showing at London Fashion Week, designer Simone Rocha welcomes us into her world. Photographed with three generations of her family, she talks about blood ties, business and the art of making clothes that women love. While Californian artist Alexandra Grant invites us to her LA studio to discuss her upcoming show and the internet’s hot topic – her relationship with actor Keanu Reeves. Meanwhile, literary favourite Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage and Silver Sparrow, talks about the unique lessons that come from achieving success later in life, once you’ve started to feel a little disheartened. It’s a moving lesson that it’s never too late. 

Then we come to the divine April cover star, Liverpudlian actor Jodie Comer. Like her legions of fans across the globe, I have been awed by Comer’s fast wit and mercurial powers on the small screen. Ahead of the next season of Killing Eve and her first Hollywood lead in this summer’s Free Guy, I travelled to New York to style her, with photographer Steven Meisel. Over the course of a joyful shoot, Comer proved she is not only a dynamite performer, but one of the smartest, funniest and most naturally chic young actors working today.
