Oh tweeted her excitement about the new role.
According to Cinema Blend, the assassin is named Villanelle, a skilled murderer who finds joy in killing people and doesn’t lose sleep doing it. It’s a high stakes game of cat and mouse with both Villanelle and Eve becoming obsessed with each other. The role of Villanelle has yet to be filled.
