As she prepares to say goodbye to the assassin, Jodie recently opened up on working with Sandra Oh on the BBC series.

Ahead of the 2021 BAFTA TV Awards, she said: “A handful of times, you meet someone, and you don’t have to say an awful lot, but there’s just like a really strong connection. I felt that with Sandra the moment I auditioned with her.

“She’s incredible and has always kind of put her arm around me. Now, we have a kind of shorthand, like when we were figuring out the ballroom dance scene in season three.”
