Jodie Comer cuts a casual figure in a shabby anorak as she joins co-star Stephen Graham in a caravan while filming scenes for new drama Help

She’s recently been nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as wicked assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve. 

And Jodie Comer took on an all together different role as she filmed scenes for new Channel 4 drama Help in a caravan in Cheshire on Monday. 

The actress, 27, was joined by co-star and fellow Liverpool native Stephen Graham, 47, for the scenes, in which she plays a carer, while Stephen is her patient who suffers from early on-set Alzheimer’s disease.

Jodie, who plays Sarah, cut a casual figure on set, dressing down in a shabby black anorak and green wellies, teaming this with a cream jumper and black leggings. 

Immersing herself in character, the star’s blonde tresses were worn loose and unkept, while she also went make-up free.

Meanwhile, Stephen, dressed in a burgundy cardigan, looked geared up for a day of filming in his role as Tony as he was seen chatting to members of the crew.

The filming in a caravan reflects the real-life situations of carers, with many moving into mobile homes rather than heading home in a bid to reduce the transmission of the Covid-19 virus to their patients.

Help is set in Liverpool and centres on the relationship between the young care home worker and her patient as they deal with the effects of the pandemic. 

It will tell the story of Sarah’s relationship with Tony – a 47-year-old man with the degenerative condition – as the care home struggles to cope with the spread of the virus. 

When Channel 4 first announced the drama, Stephen said: ‘I’ve wanted to work with Jodie for ages, and together we’re hugely passionate about shining a light on one of the biggest tragedies of our time and the people at the heart of it.’

Jodie added: ‘For us to be able to explore such a relevant and emotive story through the eyes of such beautifully real characters, and in our home city of Liverpool, is a real honour.’

The duo lauded creator Jack Thorne, as Jodie went on: ‘I am, of course, thrilled to finally be working alongside Stephen and the supremely talented Jack, Marc and those at Channel 4…

‘We’re determined to do justice to so many of the untold stories and heroes that have been affected as a result of this crisis and to handle them with care.’

Echoing her sentiments, Stephen said ‘Jack is one of the greatest and most truthful writers of our generation and in Help he has crafted a profoundly important piece of social realism’. 

Care homes have one of the hardest-hit areas during the COVID-19 pandemic, with many residents separated from loved ones for months. 

Jodie is known to many for her role as the ruthless assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve, a role which saw her awarded with a BAFTA and a Primetime Emmy.

She is looking at adding to her trophy cabinet as it was revealed on Wednesday that she has been nominated for a Golden Globe.
