Position: Villanelle’s Handler
Cover story: Nobody knows. He’s that’s good.
Konstantin is not afraid of anything or anyone. He recruits and runs assassins, but none more complex and demanding than Villanelle.
He understands that her ego is a beast, and he is constantly walking the tightrope of being able to manage it.
Konstantin is not a psychopath, he’s more pragmatic and self-interested than that – he does whatever he needs to survive.
That said, he also has an aversion to violence and getting his hands dirty. That is why Villanelle’s indifference to brutality makes her his most important asset.
He’s probably the closest thing Villanelle has ever had to a stable relationship.
He’s amused by Villanelle but he’s clever enough to be frightened of her. He is the only person we meet who isn’t powerless to Villanelle’s charms.
He knows her too well. After all… he did create her.
Konstantin is played by Danish actor Kim Bodnia, who has also appeared in crime dramas The Bridge and The Killing.
On the big screen he has appeared in the Pierce Brosnan comedy drama Love Is All You Need and talk show host Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater.
