Sandra Oh says viewers who have experienced a “bad, obsessive relationship” will relate to the second series of Killing Eve.

The newest instalment of the darkly comic cat-and-mouse crime drama, created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is airing in the US but not yet in the UK.

Oh told Sunday Times Style: “We really dive into the relationship between Eve and Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

“If you’ve been in a bad, obsessive relationship, or if you’ve struggled with addiction, you’ll relate.”

She said she avoided nights on the town while shooting the hit drama.

“That’s what I love about getting older, your focus changes. All I care about is being on point to do the work that I love.”

The show is up for five Baftas at Sunday’s TV awards ceremony, including nods for best actress for Comer and Oh, as well as best drama.

The ex-Grey’s Anatomy actress told how her mother disapproved when she went into her profession.

“My mom saw acting as ‘low’, that was her thinking coming from Korea. She’s just a classic East Asian parent – constantly dissatisfied!,” she said.

“But not being satisfied gives you drive, it’s not bad. Western society is all about being super supportive and believing in your children.”
