Jodie Comer has seen a ''shift'' in her levels of fame since starring in 'Killing Eve'. The 26-year-old actress plays fiery assassin Villanelle in the hit BBC drama, and has said that whilst she hasn't seen a ''drastic change'' in the number of people who approach her on the street, she does now get ''strange men'' who wait for her at airports. She said: ''Do you know what? It's not a drastic change, but there's definitely been a shift.

The video, which gained thousands of views on Facebook Monday, shows the man speaking with a staff member at the cash register. The man steals a jar of tips at the front and walks out of the store once the staff member turns around.

The man can be seen wearing chalklike, pale makeup, with green-coloured hair which appears to be dyed. He’s wearing a black jacket and black pants with a white collared shirt and a dark backpack in the video.

Stevens told the Star this isn’t the first time he’s seen the man in his store.

“There’s some strange people in Kensington, so it’s not that surprising to me that this happened,” he said. “I’m not sure if it’s intentional that he appears to be dressed like the Joker from the Batman comics, but it certainly caught people’s attention that he looked like that online on Facebook.”

Stevens said other store owners in the Kensington area reached out to him with reports of thefts at their locations as well. He’s making efforts to decrease thefts in his store, he said.

“The man’s come in to our store multiple times as well,” Stevens said. “He’ll come in and head straight to the toilets, staying in there for more than half an hour. It’s funny because I’m not such a big fan of the Joker, anyway.”

Other store owners who commented on Stevens’ post did not immediately respond to the Star’s request for comment.

Police spokesperson Katrina Arrogante said she’s not sure other stores have also filed a report with police, but Division 14 is currently investigating the incident at Wafels & More.

“Theft under is a possible charge,” Arrogante said in an emailed statement to the Star.
