Jodie Comer: ‘I thought I was missing the maternal gene until now’

She’s not yet tempted to capitalise on the stateside spotlight that Prima Facie shone on her, though, by actually making the United States a permanent home. “I just can’t see myself moving to Hollywood,” she laughs. “I loved living in New York for that time period but it’s so non-stop. And I think for me, home is where the heart is — it would be too big a move.” Her native Liverpool is where she yearns for when she’s in the US, she tells me. Though she never went to drama school — and has spoken widely about the “self-doubt and insecurity” she carried with her due to her lack of formal training — her parents were always supportive of her talent and she attended many drama camps in Liverpool. Americans tend to think she’s Scottish because of her softly Scouse accent. “I get that a lot, the Scottish thing. I find that if I’m in the States and I’m doing a chat show or something, I’ll always subconsciously slow myself down. Because I’ve been in situations where people are like, ‘sorry, what?’ But then of course, when I go home I revert back to my child self and it becomes 10 times stronger.”
