It’s fair to say that Jodie Comer can do no wrong, whether it’s on stage, on screen or on the red carpet. Proving the point yet again, the actor stepped out at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA over the weekend, wearing a look that can only be described as a masterclass in the art of the smoky eye.

Focused around a palette of hazy browns – specifically Tom Ford’s Eyeshadow Quad in Mink Mirage, according to Comer’s make-up artist Georgie Eisdell – the mocha-toned mix added subtle drama to Jodie’s face without feeling too heavy. To recreate the same effect, use your darkest shade along your lash line to add intensity, then gently smudge it out over lids and brow bones incorporating the lighter colours with a soft blending brush as you go. To add extra definition, the actor’s lashes were coated in YSL’s inky black Faux Cils Mascara to anchor the smokiness.

Comer wore her smoky eye on the red carpet, but happily for the rest of us, the look is the perfect way to segue from the office to after-dark activities. Although it’s resolutely smoky, the lack of sparkle in the shadows means it doesn’t veer into “Christmas party” territory, nor does it feel too full-on for a quick drink after work. To make it work on you as well as it does on her, take Comer’s lead and pair with sparkling skin (hers comes courtesy of Noble Panacea’s Brilliant Glow Hydration Oil) and blusher with an almost toffee undertone, to tie all the tones together.

David Harbour stated that he did a horror game with Jodie Comer, but it wasn’t clear what game it was. That has now been confirmed, as the two actors are the two main characters in the upcoming Alone in the Dark remake.

Who are David Harbour and Jodie Comer in the Alone in the Dark remake?

Harbour plays a detective Edward Carnby, a grizzled private investigator that’s quite visually different from its 1992 counterpart. Writer and game director Mikael Hedberg, who’s known for writing Frictional Games’ first two Amnesia titles and Soma, said that Harbour has a “strong presence” as an actor and can do well in both comical and dramatic situations. Harbour also chimed in about the series and what he likes about Edward.

“I knew of past iterations of the game,” said Harbour. “The video game world is something that I’m very interested in in general. The horror genre specifically. He’s kind of a gruff detective and he’s searching for something, and he’s hard-boiled, but he’s got some humor to him. He’s a bit of a trope or a type, and I like that. And I like the world and sort of how he’s exploring this insanity amidst all the horror and stuff.”

Comer plays Emily Hartwood, the niece of Jeremy Hartwood who has been haunted by a character named the Dark Man. Hedberg said Comer brings a lot of nuance to the character, which makes it easier for players to sympathize with her. Comer also talked about Hartwood and how she tried to juggle all Emily’s complexities.

“I love the mystery of the game, and I love the picture of her,” said Comer. “There was so much about her that I was curious of. There’s a lot of fear within her and a lot of speculation, curiosity, dread, intrigue. There’s a lot about her that’s on edge. Yes, there is the scary element, but then she still has to go on a journey and discover different things. And there should still be room to breathe and have a funny moment or a sarcastic moment or a moment of discovery. So it’s just trying to keep all of those other beats alive amongst the darkness of it all.”

Developer Pieces Interactive also spoke more about the game by talking about the psychological horror that is “more than just jump scares,” the resource-driven gunplay, numerous puzzles, and thick atmosphere. The team also announced the release date for the game, which is October 25 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

The actress said she hopes that the play continues to generate discussions around sexual assault and said the response so far has been “beautiful.”

That Jodie Comer should have received a nomination for her work in the solo show “Prima Facie,” a role that already won her Olivier and Evening Standard Theater awards, should have come as a surprise to no one. Except apparently Comer.

“I’m in shock,” she said from the back of a taxi late Tuesday morning.

In “Prima Facie,” which also earned nominations in three design categories, Comer plays Tessa, an ambitious young barrister who finds herself transformed after a colleague rapes her. With compassion, bold physicality and raw, febrile emotion, Comer enacts that assault and its aftermath eight times a week, standing in the stage rain (which the backstage crew has usually, though not always, warmed up) as Tessa struggles to gain a new perspective on her life and the law.

Comer said she hopes that the play continues to generate discussions around sexual assault and hopes that her nomination is in service of the many women she endeavors to represent. These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

How do you feel?

We’ve been on such a journey with this play. I never dreamed that this would be a point that we would be at. So it just feels incredible. The response has been beautiful, and I just feel very, very grateful that so many on the team have been recognized as well. I can’t stress enough how much of a team effort this piece truly is.

On the night I saw the play, as it ended, I could hear several women weeping. Has the response here been any different than it was in London?

The only difference, I would say, has been to the humor. People find humor in different moments. But given the subject matter, which is so universal, the response has been very, very similar to the U.K. We’ve had a lot of people sending letters to us backstage, explaining their experiences watching the play and how it affected them. And we’ve had people reach out who came to see the play in London, and have also come to Broadway, expressing and confiding how their lives have changed within the past year. It feels like we can have the same conversation here.
