Jodie seemed in high spirits as she kept warm under a blue denim jacket and a black face mask. 

She opted for a pair of black slip on shoes as she carried her personal belongings in a chic tote bag. 

Jodie completed her look after taking to the stage by styling her blonde tresses in waves as they cascaded down to her shoulders.

The star’s security were close by as fans attempted to get as close as possible to Jodie for a picture of an autograph. 

Jodie is swapping the theatre boards of the West End for the bright lights of Broadway as she heads to the US with her play. 

She has received critical acclaim for her West End debut in the role as Tessa in Prima Facie, a one-person play by Suzie Miller, 

The production sees Comer portraying a brilliant barrister who has progressed from her working class origins to the top of the profession, when an unexpected event forces her to ‘confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge’.

Sharing the news on Instagram, alongside a picture of her with tears in her yes, Comer wrote: ‘I am so honoured to play a part in the telling of this story and beyond thrilled that next week isn’t the end.

‘It means so much to see and hear so many of your positive responses.

‘Thank you to all of you who have supported the show and a special shout out to those who have travelled thousands of miles, now it’s our turn. I love you Tess, we’re going to BROADWAY!’.

It comes after she reportedly found herself at the centre of a security scare last month, after an overzealous fan allegedly tried to get under a shutter to the stage door at the theatre of her play.

Her popularity has no doubt soared after picking up the Leading Actress gong for her role in Channel 4 ‘s Help at this year’s BAFTA Television Awards held at London ‘s Royal Festival Hall earlier this month. 

The star who won the category in 2019 for Killing Eve, admitted she was ‘very nervous’ as she took to the stage to receive her award for her outstanding performance in the pandemic drama.

The Liverpool-born actress has been lauded for her role in BBC spy thriller Killing Eve in which she stars as Russian assassin Villanelle alongside Sandra Oh as Eve Polastri.

She has also starred alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names appearing in Sir Ridley Scott’s historical epic The Last Duel alongside Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and sci-fi comedy Free Guy with Ryan Reynolds.

At this year’s Bafta ceremony, Comer claimed the leading actress award for her role in Channel 4’s Help – a fictional drama set in a Liverpool care home during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

Prima Facie will arrive on Broadway in 2023, Comer confirmed.
