During their conversation, Sandra revealed why Shonda Rhimes turned her down for the role of Olivia Pope on the hit series, which went to Kerry.

“I’ve got to tell you, I remember exactly where I was when I read that damn pilot,” Sandra revealed.

“Really?” Kerry asked.

“Oh yeah. I was on Grey’s. We were on stage five. Someone snuck it to me, I don’t know who it was, but I got my hands on that pilot and I read it and I was just like, ‘How could I play Olivia Pope?’” Sandra continued.

“Oh, for sure!” Kerry added.

“I remember going to Shonda, and it’s like, ‘How could I do this? What is this script? Could I do this too?’ She goes, ‘No, you’ve got to play Cristina Yang!’” Sandra explained.

Sandra also revealed her own theory about this Killing Eve finale…

Sandra Oh Has Her Own Theory About the 'Killing Eve' Season 2 Finale

During the chat, Sandra talked about the end of Killing Eve‘s second season, in which Villanelle left Eve for dead but walked away without making sure.

“I have my own theory, which might not be in line with the writers or even Jodie [Comer], because I don’t really know what Jodie felt like. What I thought is that [Villanelle] knows. She’s too good at her job. She knows,” she revealed.

She also talked about Season 3, and Villanelle in a clown costume – and whether that was meant as a Joker homage.

“I don’t think so. I think that would definitely be a conversation to have with Suzanne Heathcote, the head writer, but I don’t think so. I think it was really to put Villanelle in an outrageous situation, and then the horror that can happen. No one likes clowns really,” she said.

As for whether Eve and Villanelle could ever actually live a happy life together?

“No, and I think that’s what makes great drama. I think that’s what makes great romance. It’s the yearning that brings people in. It’s that dramatic storytelling. It’s based on desire and yearning,” she explained.

'Killing Eve' Star Jodie Comer Talks More of Season Three & Says Villanelle Is 'Faced With A Lot of Stuff'

Villanelle (Jodie Comer) goes incognito as a delivery person in this still from the season three premiere of Killing Eve, which is back tonight, April 12.

Jodie spoke to EW about what fans could expect from the new season and what’s in store for Villanelle.

At the end of season two, Villanelle shot Eve (Sandra Oh) as she was walking away – however, Eve isn’t dead at all.

“[She's] trying to carry on with her life and trying to live a more normal life. It’s six months later. It wasn’t like in [season] 1 where we jumped into [season] 2 where we picked up from that moment. So time has passed and we see her trying to get on with things,” Jodie shared of the time jump and what’s going on with her character now.

She adds that “a big theme for Villanelle is her trying to gauge some sense of control. She is a very free spirit and she always seems to be under the thumb of this higher entity, whoever that may be. She’s really trying to shake that off — and she wants to be in charge of her own destiny in a way.”

“Her past definitely comes into play in a very, very big way,” Jodie continued. “I think it enables the audience to see her again in a different surrounding and kind of endearing and frightening. She’s faced with a lot of stuff.”

Jodie also spoke of the symbolism you’ll see of where Eve was shot and how it connects.

“It’s symbolic in a way that when Eve stabbed Villanelle in series 1, for Villanelle, Eve was a part of her in some way. She has this marking that was from her and was now a part of her,” she says. “…I think the biggest thing is that you’re faced with this constant reminder of your past and what it is that you’re dealing in the present. So I think it’s definitely symbolic.”

Killing Eve premieres TONIGHT, April 12 at 9/8c on BBC America.
