Killing Eve stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer have addressed the possibility of a movie spin-off - but sadly, it doesn't look likely any time soon.

But fans of the show hoping that it might get a big-screen outing look set to be disappointed.

Speaking to Extra, Oh who plays MI6 agent Eve said of the possibility of a film version: "I don’t know, because for me, when I close something, I close it… For me, just how I work, I do and I don’t really need to go back."

Comer, who plays assassin Villanelle, joked: "She hates me. It’s me. I’m the problem."

Talking about the decision to end the show after four series, Oh said of Eve and Villanelle: "It was just the right time to explore the end of this relationship.

"It’s actually a very tricky dynamic to continue on for multiple seasons, and so that has always been a challenge after the first season to sustain truthfully and sustain how they’re gonna grow… It just felt in our bones that this was the right time to bring them to a new place of growth, but it was time to close it."

Killing Eve has been a career-defining role for Comer, who has kept viewers entertained with her glamorous assassin adept at using a range of accents and identities.

Comer admitted that the character had helped her "shed a skin" and added that it was "liberating" to play someone who didn't care about consequences and that it had "filtered through into my own life".
