For W’s 2020 Television Portfolio, the most sought-after and influential stars of the moment have been asked to embody characters from their favorite shows of the past few months.

You’ve been watching I Hate Suzie, which unfortunately isn’t available yet in the U.S. It’s a real trip. I think what Billie Piper and Lucy Prebble have done is brilliant. The series is very, very immersive. In the first episode, you meet an actress who’s having a photo shoot in her house, doing some sort of publicity for a role. And in the midst of all that, there’s a notification on the news that a group of celebrities’ and public figures’ phones and accounts have been hacked. Compromising, private images have been released, and the images are of her. I don’t really want to give you any spoilers, but the series follows how she deals with it and goes through it. Each episode follows a certain emotion—I guess the kind of journey you go on when something catastrophic like that happens in your life. But it’s really funny. It’s got a lot of comedy, and Billie Piper is just incredible. And I think the way they portray people in the industry is so spot-on. It’s so fun to watch when you’ve been on sets before, when you’ve been on photo shoots, and all those clichés.

But I think ultimately what really fascinated me is how she explores handling something like this, having your privacy invaded and put out there for all the world to see and what that does to a person. And also the expectations we have of people, whether they’re in the public eye or not. You know, it seems like now people can’t afford to make mistakes or slip up or seem to have been doing wrong, even within their own lives. It’s something that everybody takes part of in one way or another, the ridicule. Everyone jumps on top of it. I think sometimes in society now, it’s like this mob mentality, isn’t it? I really admired the way she explored that, and once I started, I just couldn’t stop. Like Michaela Coel and I May Destroy You, this show has this very particular tone, and it’s very fresh. And I just feel like it’s women who are doing this. I’m like, please give me the name of a man who is doing this! It’s just women, like, of course, Phoebe [Waller-Bridge]. It’s so inspiring.

Do you miss red carpets and getting dressed up? Yeah, I do. You know, I think actually what I miss more about that whole experience is the team of people I’m always around, like the hair and makeup team. My stylist, Elizabeth Saltzman, is just one of the best human beings ever. She’s so much fun. I think what I miss most is being around like-minded people like that, who really celebrate those moments and make them fun. They’re always such a good energy to be around. So I look forward to the day when, when we can all do that again in person.

Massive congratulations to Sandra Oh, who is also nominated in that same category, and to Fiona Shaw for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series.

Killing Eve is also nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Contemporary Program (One Hour Or More) and Outstanding Contemporary Costumes (Are You From Pinner?), Outstanding Music Supervision (Meetings Have Biscuits) and Outstanding Casting For A Drama Series.

DeadlineProduction on Season 4 of BBC America’s Killing Eve has been postponed without a clear return date as the show’s complicated European shoot schedule has been hammered by coronavirus.

Deadline can reveal that Sid Gentle Films was originally aiming to get cameras rolling on the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning drama in August, as it has with the past three series. But the company has now abandoned the plans and is yet to set a restart date for later this year.

The main reason for the delay is because Killing Eve is a jigsaw of European location shoots, many of which have been rendered difficult at this time due to the pandemic. Producers are being tight-lipped about where Season 4 will take Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), but past locations include Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bucharest and Tuscany.

[…] The Killing Eve production delay will almost certainly push back its premiere date in 2021. The show works on a fairly fast turnaround basis, shooting in late summer and through the autumn, before premiering in early April on BBC America.

A spokesman for the show said: “Killing Eve shoots across multiple European locations. Due to the uncertainty of the world as a result of Covid-19, no shooting schedules for Killing Eve season four have been locked in at this point and there are various scenarios in play.
