Jodie Comer: Emmy-winning ‘Killing Eve’ star is red-hot Oscar contender for ‘The Last Duel’

Comer could go from Emmy glory to Oscar recognition this year with her acclaimed starring role in Ridley Scott’s medieval epic “The Last Duel.” She portrays Marguerite de Carrouges, a fiercely defiant woman who sacrifices her own life for the sake of truth.
