The company was only filed in February 2020 and Jodie has managed to continue acting throughout the coronavirus pandemic. 

Jodie, who is about to star in the final fourth series of the BBC spy thriller has cemented herself as one of the UK’s most in demand actresses.

She has most recently starred in the channel 4 film Help alongside Stephen Graham.

Film director Ridley Scott also cast her alongside Matt Damon in the historical movie Last Duel, which was released last month.

Even after costs and liabilities were deducted including £28,537 in Corporation Tax, Jodie still had more than half a million still left over – £583,856.

Elsewhere, Jodie recently opened up about finishing the fourth and final season of Killing Eve during an interview with Harper’s Bazaar.

She  said: ‘I’m trying not to think about it too much, honestly. 

‘It’s sad, you know? I’ve been with this character for a really, really long time. I would rather we ended on a good note and kept our integrity, instead of going on and on, and being kicked out the door.’

On playing her iconic character she added: ‘There are so many layers to Villanelle. She’s multifaceted and you can’t really pin her down. 

‘She’s instilled a sense of fearlessness in me. Through playing her, I’ve had to shed my own self-consciousness.’ 

She added of the killer’s style: ‘Villanelle’s style is loud and a little bit mismatched. She dresses for herself, which I adore. I’m happy when I’m comfortable, I want to explore fashion but ultimately, I want to feel like myself. Villanelle would probably hate me!’

Since rising to fame on the hugely-popular show, Jodie has gone on to star in films such as The Last Dune and the pandemic drama Help.    

On transitioning from TV to film she explained to the glossy magazine: ‘It was so intimidating, it just felt so much bigger. I had a lot of stunts and I’d never really worked with green screen before. 

‘I learnt how to draw emotion from myself while having to imagine everything around me. I’d always told myself there are television actresses and there are film actresses. I’d made up this story in my head that film was totally different, and it isn’t at all.’

In the Channel 4 drama Help which was shown last month, Jodie plays the role of a new care worker as the coronavirus pandemic takes hold of the UK. 

On filming the show she said: ‘When I left the job I was so upset, I’ve got shivers even thinking about it, it was just non-stop. 

‘I came away from it feeling like I’d never felt about any other project. The story felt bigger than all of us, so important and precious.’

She then starred in the film The Last Duel which centres around the story of the knight Jean de Carrouges and his wife Marguerite, played by Jodie, who is assaulted.

Jodie said of the film: ‘It’s just crazy when you look back at this story from such a long time ago and you go ‘Wow, have we learnt at all?’

‘That’s the sad thing, you could go back to any decade in history and people would say, ‘God this is so relevant today.’

On The Last Duel’s world premier being at the Venice Film Festival she added: ‘I mean, the boats! It was hilarious because my dad messaged in our family WhatsApp group being like, ‘Just waiting for my taxi.’ 

‘And we were waiting for our water-taxi to go home and I sent a picture of the entrance to the hotel and was like, ‘Me too!’ and he replied, ‘Oh, you b***h!’

On which genres she has on her bucket list she explained: ‘I’d love to do some very grounded sci-fi and I really, really want to work with [this year’s Palme d’Or winner] Julia Ducournau. 

‘What I love about her is that she clearly has such a distinct voice and her films are so unexpected.’ 

It was revealed in March that Killing Eve’s much-anticipated fourth season will air on television next year.
