Jodie Comer arrives on BAFTA red carpet for Help nomination
Jodie Comer stepped onto the BAFTA red carpet wearing a black suit and statement silver earrings after her nomination for her performance in Channel 4 series Help.
The 29-year-old actress, best-known for her role as Villanelle in the BBC series Killing Eve, had her hair swept back and sported glamorous make-up. She joined fellow Liverpool actor Stephen Graham on the carpet, posing for the cameras together.
Jodie described it as an "honour" to be involved in the drama, Help, which was set in a Liverpool care home at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. She plays a carer who bonds with a patient (Stephen Graham) during the horrors of the first lockdown.

"The incredible thing about Channel 4 is that they're there to tell those types of stories," Jodie said, during an interview on the red carpet. She then continued to say filming during a pandemic was "surreal", reports OK!
Jodie also addressed the fact that Killing Eve has come to an end, she said: "My head has been consumed by theatre at the minute. But it is strange, and all good things come to an end. It's probably more fresh for the audience than it is for me."
Jodie's red carpet appearance comes after she was reportedly whisked away from a theatre show after being in the midst of a "security scare". The Killing Eve star was caught in the centre of the action after fans reported "worrying" behaviour.
It comes after fans recalled a man – who was carrying a bouquet of flowers whilst wearing a suit – was acting suspiciously and caused concern at the star's usual exit.
Jodie was encouraged out of the building through a separate exit to avoid the man in question. The man attempted to enter through the stage door by attempting to get under a shutter.
The actress has been starring in solo show Prima Facie at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London.
