Sandra continued: ‘I would have loved it, because I just thought that there was so much material there to potentially explore. Because the setting and the characters were established… I’m just happy that it happened, it was a great experience. But I am sad that it’s over.’ 

The series premiered on the streaming service in August 2021 and highlighted the Grey’s Anatomy star as playing the first woman of color to become chair of a major university’s failing English department. 

Sandra’s role as Dr Ji-yoon Kim in the series earned her a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for lead female actor in a comedy series category.

The Killing Eve star’s next project is the Disney Pixar’s upcoming coming-of-age movie Turning Red as she will voice the young lead’s protective and pedantic mother. It also marks the animation studio’s first Asian-led feature movie. 

Sandra is gearing up for the release of the final season of hit show Killing Eve, opposite Jodie Comer.  

Eve Polastri and Villanelle will be engulfed in their usual game of cat and mouse, while Eve’s boss Carolyn, played by Fiona Shaw, is setting her sights on hunting down the international organization that employs assassins, The Twelve.

Ahead of the February 27 series premiere on BBC America and AMC, the trailer shows Villanelle, in her classic style, divulging: ‘I killed two people last night after I tried really hard not to,’ to which a man replies, ‘Okay, well, that’s not ideal.’ 

The next scene tells a similar story, where Eve confesses to shooting someone in the hand.

When asked how it felt, she says to the man in the scene: ‘Like you said it would feel. Want to have sex?’

In other trailer snippets, Carolyn asks Eve to take over The Twelve investigation after members of the organization were killed.
