Thinking: The Korean-Canadian actor (pictured as Eve Polastri) is interested in figuring out is what it means to be Asian in the West
Eve was shot (on the ground) by Villanelle in the season 2 cliffhanger
'This has something to do with the psychological depths Eve has gone to and she wonders if that’s why the show has struck such a nerve, particularly among women: “Eve is changing, and the deeper you go, the deeper the resonance can be".'

She explained that when she first received the script for Killing Eve, she couldn’t make out which role was for her, taking for granted that it wasn’t the lead.

She said: 'I still wonder what that was about. That was one of those moments when you believe you are on a journey, making progress, and then you realize, inside you are back here.
'I was filled with shame, anger, humiliation, heartbreak. And that was only three years ago.'
The success of Killing Eve has helped her to move on, and has also led to a number of breakthroughs, including Oh becoming the first Asian-American woman to be nominated for a Lead Actress Emmy, to host the Golden Globes, and to win multiple Golden Globes (after her Best Supporting Actress gong for Grey’s Anatomy in 2006).

Sandra revealed she took her mother and father to see the billboards for Killing Eve in 2018.
She said: 'This is what I really love about my parents. Not only is it, this is my daughter on this billboard, it’s absolutely an Asian face too, and that has a profound meaning for them, which we don’t need to talk about, but I know they carry it.
'And I know they carry it for everyone in their generation.'
The star also discussed her first role outside of college, a TV film about Canadian poet Evelyn Lau.
She said: 'It was very difficult subject matter. With scenes of Evelyn doing drugs and being a prostitute.
'[My mom had] this very old-school mentality that acting is one step above prostitution, and the first thing I do is play a prostitute!
'It aired and the next week at church some people were not [supportive]. But I never felt any pressure because [my parents sided with me] and that was clearly very difficult.
'The only thing I remember [my mom] saying to me afterwards was, ‘That must have been very hard.’ It’s amazing the ways we feel understood by our parents.'
