By Keith Perry

This could be the beginning of the end for telly assassin Villanelle as actress Jodie Comer takes a pack of pills while filming the final scenes for the last series of hit BBC drama Killing Eve.

Jodie, 28, in baggy shirt and pyjama-style trousers, was filming with Sandra Oh, 50, who plays Eve, on the beachfront in Margate, Kent.

Jodie, who plays the callous killer in the BBC drama, looked downbeat as her character was passed the pills in a scene.

The Emmy Award winner was dressed down in a baggy shirt and pyjama-style trousers for the final season of the show.

She was joined by her co-star as they recorded scenes near the Nayland Rock Hotel.

Jodie has previously spoken about her struggle to come to terms with the programme ending.

The Emmy Award-winning actress has played the psychopathic assasin - who becomes obssessed with Sandra’s MI6 agent Eve.

Speaking to NBC, she admitted she has been feeling emotional about the show coming to an end saying: ‘I had a little moment where I saw the clapperboard and I had a kind of lump in my throat.’

When asked if she’s already mourning the loss of her iconic character, Jodie answered: ‘Not yet, because I cannot let myself. I have two months left [of filming].

‘It is like a marathon,’ she explained. ‘If you are at the start you cannot think of the finish.’

While the end of the hit series might upset devout fans, there is some good news amid the gloom.

Variety reported earlier this year that that the show's production companies MC Networks and Sid Gentle Films Ltd are developing a potential spin-off series.

Jodie told Variety back in March: “Killing Eve has been the most extraordinary journey and one that I will be forever grateful for.

“Thank you to all the fans who’ve supported us throughout and come along for the ride. Although all good things come to an end, it’s not over yet. We aim to make this one to remember!”

While lead star Sandra, 50, said: “Killing Eve has been one of my greatest experiences and I look forward to diving back into Eve’s remarkable mind soon.

“I’m so grateful for all cast and crew who have brought our story to life and to the fans who have joined us and will be back for our exciting and unpredictable fourth and final season.”

Jodie has teamed up with Stephen Graham for an all-new Channel 4 drama ’Help’.
