Playing MI6 operative Eve Polastri in the award-winning Killing Eve. Being named by Time as one of the world’s most influential people. Co-hosting the Golden Globes. Guest presenting Saturday Night Live. Giving an impassioned speech at a Stop Asian Hate rally in March 2021. Even if your eyes have never scanned the halls of Grey Sloan Memorial, there’s no way you cannot have felt her impact.
