Sandra Oh says Killing Eve season two will resonate with people who ‘struggle with addiction’.

Oh, who plays Eve on the show, has described the game of cat and mouse between her character Eve and assassin Villanelle as ‘an obsessive relationship’.

The former Grey’s Anatomy star hinted that she can relate to the drama for this reason, but annoyingly didn’t want to go any further.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, Oh said: ‘We really dive into the relationship between Eve and Villanelle.

‘If you’ve been in a bad, obsessive relationship, or if you’ve struggled with addiction, you’ll relate. I have and…. Let’s leave it at that.’

The actress added that she had to stop partying in order to stay fresh for the shoot, which took place across Europe – including London – for six months.

She joked: ‘I cut all my regular vices, but I don’t miss it. That’s what I love about getting older, your focus changes. All I care about is being on point to do the work that I love.’

Killing Eve, which has already been renewed for season three, is currently airing in the US and will arrive in the UK at a later date.

However the first season, written and created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is still up for a string of TV Baftas which will be handed out today (12 May).

Bafta defended the nominations after the show’s eligibility was called into question.

Bafta’s TV awards eligibility rules state that ‘programmes must have had their first transmission in the UK between 1 January and 31 December 2018’ and that ‘the programme must have had the worldwide premiere transmission in the UK’.

Killing Eve had its premiere in April on BBC America, which is owned by the BBC and American channel AMC, and considered a totally separate body to the BBC.

It aired in the UK on BBC Three and later BBC One last September.

Under the rules Killing Eve should not necessarily qualify for the categories it has landed in.

Bafta defended the nominations in a statement to Metro.co.uk, noting the ‘significant creative contribution from UK talent’.

Bafta said: ‘BAFTA’s Television Committee deems Killing Eve a British series.

‘Killing Eve received 14 nominations, 9 of which were eligible under BAFTA’s criteria, and 5 of which were deemed eligible by the TV committee due to the significant creative contribution from key UK talent throughout the production.

‘The Television committee is the arbiter of all eligibility.’

Russell T Davies’ A Very English Scandal scored 12 nods including best actor and supporting actor for Hugh Grant and Ben Wishaw respectively.

Killing Eve season two will air on the BBC at a date to be confirmed. Season one is available on BBC iPlayer.
