Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is planning her own death. Speaking to UK tabloid the Mirror, she said she was planning on writing a part for herself into season 3. One where she gets chopped the eff up: “I was like, I am going to write myself a part so that I can be murdered by Jodie.” Waller-Bridge is a versatile writer-performer, playing entirely different nightmares of human beings in Fleabag and the UK series Crashing. Waller-Bridge actually wrote Killing Eve intending to play one of the two lead roles. But as the story developed, she aged herself out of both parts. “I just had a really strong instinct that there should be this age gap because I just felt like it was something I hadn’t seen,” she told the Mirror. “I’m not a 25-year-old Jodie Comer — I mean, let’s be frank. And I don’t know if I could have scaled a wall quite like she could have done, and I’m not in my early 40’s either.” Waller-Bridge is working on the new James Bond script, but after that it’s all about getting absolutely destroyed by Jodie Comer. Lucky.
