Jodie Comer reportedly found herself at the centre of a security scare after an overzealous fan allegedly tried to get under a shutter to the stage door at the theatre of her play Prima Facie in London.

It is claimed the actress, 29, was whisked out of a separate door after a man in a suit with flowers attempted to meet the Killing Eve star at her usual exit last Saturday.

According to The Sun, the gentleman was exhibiting ‘worrying’ behaviour to security staff and Jodie will no longer be meeting fans outside the Harold Pinter Theatre in the West End ‘to protect Jodie as much as possible’.

A fan told the publication: ‘The crowd was mostly young girls, so this man was very out of place.

‘He claimed to be from Hungary, but he spoke with a French accent.

‘He was scrolling through images of Jodie on his phone. A few of the fans standing near him were worried by his behaviour, so they notified security staff.’

A source told MailOnline any security worries were settled after the CCTV was reviewed and the curbing of fan meetings is to reduce the chance of Covid infection.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Jodie and the Harold Pinter Theatre for comment.

It comes after Jodie was left fearing for her life after a French stalker threatened to kill her, before a man was arrested by police in France last August.

There is no suggestion the man from last week’s alleged incident is the same person.

The star, best known for her role as the assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve, alerted authorities after receiving sinister online threats, and an unnamed man, 44, was apprehended after officers stormed his home in the city of Roubaix.

Jodie, who was noticeably absent from social media while police investigated her case, received terrifying messages from a stalker, including one warning: ‘I am coming to England to create carnage.’

It’s thought that technology experts were brought in after Jodie and her family received the threats, which were traced to the northern French city of Roubaix.

Armed officers raided the man’s home during a dawn raid last month, and held him in custody.  

Computer files and other technical equipment were seized during the raid, when the man cooperated with officers.

Prosecutors in Lille, confirmed that the alleged threats from a man, who lives in nearby Roubaix, were ‘a matter of great concern’.

A spokesman for Lille prosecutors said at the time: ‘Following an official approach by the British authorities, a man was taken into custody for acts of harassment against an English actress.’
