Fiona describes her character in Killing Eve ‘as a bag of monkeys, I do not know what she’s doing.

‘This unrecognizability is the key to her magnetism, viewers are attracted to the MI6 boss

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

She knows a lot more than she lets go… She sometimes plays a longer game than her behavior seems to show.

‘The personality needed to work in MI6 is not warm and affectionate. Because you have to be careful about everything everyone says to you ‘.

‘You also have to be very careful about what you say, how you behave and who you love. It gives really good excitement. ‘
