KILLING Eve actress Jodie Comer appears to have netted a lacrosse champ.
She was spotted having a cosy dinner with James Burke in her home city of Liverpool.
It came after he was seen arriving at her family home, and she was spotted in a hoodie with the crest of his club, Boston Laxachusetts, while out shopping.
Meanwhile, James, 26, deleted his social media profiles when his name became public and mentions of him on Jodie’s accounts have disappeared.
Award-winner Jodie, twisted killer Villanelle in the hit BBC drama, split from her long-term boyfriend in March 2019.
And the star, 27, claimed she was too focused on her career to begin chasing a new romance.
She said: “I feel like if I meet someone at the right time that would be great, but at the moment I am cool with just being by myself. It’s nice.”
Meanwhile, playing a ruthless assassin made dating awkward. Jodie said: “Villanelle has issues and she has no remorse. But when I am introduced to men sometimes they are a little bit hesitant and yes, maybe they can be a bit frightened.
But when they see the real me and it’s like, ‘Oh, she’s safe, she’s all good’.”
James, of Duxbury, Massachusetts, is kick-ass just like Villanelle — his team once suspended him for kicking an opponent.
“Cancel culture” trolls blasted James for his apparent support for President Trump.
One tweeted: Jodie Comer if you’re reading this, you can’t play a gay character and call yourself an ally when you’re dating a Republican, you disgusting piece of s***.”
Another said Jodie’s critics had “worms for brains”.
