Worried: Killing Eve star Fiona Show, 63, sparked concern when she attended the screening on crutches

She finally won a role in the film Three Men and a Little Lady, in which she played a frumpy headteacher, ‘completely finished my film career,’ she says, laughing.

She added speaking to the Ipaper, ‘Once you’ve passed the age of being a heroine you’re doomed’.

Award winner: Speaking on the role of MI6 chief Carolyn Martens of which one the 2019 Bafta was one that she feels she waited ‘all her life for’

Fiona describes her character in Killing Eve ‘as a bag of monkeys, I don’t know what she’s up to.

‘That unknowability is key to her magnetism viewers are drawn to the MI6 boss

‘Who, in many respects, is a deeply unlikeable character – because’, says Shaw, ‘she’s mysterious.’ 

She knows a lot more than she lets on… She is sometimes playing a longer game than her behaviour might appear to show.

‘The personality needed to work in MI6 is not warm and cuddly. Because you have to be wary of everything everyone says to you’. 

‘You also have to be very careful of what you say, how you behave and who you love.  It makes for really good tension.’
