"Killing Eve" star Jodie Comer had to leave her Wednesday performance of her one-woman Broadway play, "Prima Facie," after telling the audience she couldn't breathe because of smoke from Canadian wildfires, Variety reported.
Comer stopped the performance of "Prima Facie" about 10 minutes into the matinee show, a spokesperson for the show confirmed to Insider. Variety reported that Comer was helped off the stage by a stage manager.
The spokesperson told Insider that Comer had difficulty breathing because of the smoke that engulfed the city. Comer's understudy, Dani Arlington, took over the role for the remainder of the performance, the spokesperson said.

New York is experiencing terrible air quality as smoke from Canadian wildfires blows south.
The city's sky has had a yellow hue for the last two days, and the air smells like smoke. The haze has been so bad that it blocked out the NYC skyline and forced nearby airports to ground and delay flights.
The National Weather Service has urged vulnerable people, including seniors and young children, to limit their time outdoors until the smoke clears.
