Jodie Comer says The Last Duel is 'very relevant' in the #MeToo era

British actor Jodie Comer has said the themes of her new film The Last Duel, which deals with the rape of a 14th century noblewoman and her subsequent disempowerment have not done away.

Comer, who shot to fame playing the iconic Villanelle in BBC series Killing Eve, said the cast and crew felt “a real duty of care” when dealing with such a sensitive subject matter.

The 28-year-old actor from Liverpool stars alongside Matt Damon and Adam Driver in the new Ridley Scott-directed film The Last Duel.
