Jodie Comer’s relationship with her boyfriend –
Recently in an interview with Marie Claire Australia, Jodie gushes about how everything has fallen into place for her since she started dating James. She goes on to state that she feels that she has settled down.
The actress told people how she met her beau. She said that her first encounter with him was in the summer of 2019 when she was shooting for “Free Guy.” She met him at a party in Boston where she was shooting. The actress said that it wasn’t something she had expected before. “When you feel it, you come to know how it feels like, which is – special!” In her opinion, their relationship feels “special” as well as “different” at the same time.
The actress’s boyfriend, James reportedly works in the tech industry. He visited Jodie in her hometown last summer. James last played during the 2016 season. He is from Duxbury, Massachusetts, and has majored in Communication Arts and Science.
Jodie Comer was in a relationship before James in the year 2018. Her then-boyfriend did not come from the same world as she does. She also goes on to say why she didn’t want to live in her hometown in Liverpool.
She says that her friends are in Liverpool, and so is my boyfriend. He is not in the film industry, so it’s interesting for him to understand. However, Jodie did not reveal the name or anything much about her then-boyfriend. We don’t know anything about him except for the fact that the relationship did not last long.
The actress also expressed her thoughts on why she finds it so hard to have any relationship when working in the film industry. She feels that the tight schedule and constant moving around a lot for shooting make it almost impossible to have a steady love interest.
When Jodie realized she had an acting talent –
When Jodie was just a child, she loved to make impressions, same as her character Villanelle in Killing Eve. She revealed that she joined the drama school when she was 11 years old. “I was very extroverted and very much in touch with my emotions,” she said. “I just loved talking, and I was probably a bit of a nuisance in my class because I never shut up.”
It was at the age of 12 that Jodie realized she had a talent for acting. She performed a monologue at a local drama festival. The show had many other kids performing, and her father was worried that Jodie wouldn’t be very good. But Jodie was very good indeed. She won the competition for performing a monologue on the Hillsborough disaster.
While talking to the “Town & Country,” she said what her father’s reaction was. She said, “I remember seeing my father’s face after I finished. He was just like – Whoa!”
Her hometown Liverpool has always been in her heart. She is really close with her family and never wanted her career to bring any distance from her family. In an interview with “The Times,” she said that she would live with her mom and dad till she was old if she could. But she’s definitely looking to move out of her home. She feels that she needs her own space and liberty.
In an interview with “InStyle” magazine, Jodie admitted the public reaction to her new relationship was “really shocking.” She also stated that the biggest lesson for her this year was she “came to know who she is.” Further, she added that she and James have been able to keep their long-distance relationship alive. She quotes, “I feel like with anything, if you want something enough, you can make it work!”
