  Eve Hewson spent more than a year living under lockdown with her parents and three siblings in Dublin, including her father Bono, (born Paul Hewson)
frontman for the band U2. With a mischievous glint in her eye, she described the experience in an interview as if the Osborns and the Kardashians combined to make a show, a time of love and healthy mischief rooted in familial ties that not even a pandemic could break.
Hewson, whose given name is Memphis Eve Sunny Day Iris, turns 30 this year after making her film debut 10 years earlier.
It’s been a long road for the beautiful and gifted actress who has taken on roles such as Mary in This Must Be the Place (2019) and Nurse Lucy in Steven Soderbergh’s television series The Knick (2014). But it’s her latest roles that are garnering attention and accolades.
“When people don’t expect much of you, it’s more enjoyable when you prove them wrong.”
