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 appeal, viewers are drawn to the MI6 boss

“Who is a very unappealing character in many ways — because,” Shaw says, “she’s mysterious.”

She knows a lot more than she lets on… She sometimes plays a longer game than her behavior seems 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 about what you say, how you behave and who you love. It creates a very good tension.’
