Memphis Eve Sunny Day Hewson[1][2] (born 7 July 1991), known professionally as Eve Hewson, is an Irish actress. Her first major role was in the 2011 film This Must Be the Place.

Early life[edit]

Hewson was born in Dublin, the second daughter of activist Ali Hewson (née Alison Stewart) and U2 lead singer Bono (Paul David Hewson). She was named after being born at 7am on 7 July, as "eve" is the middle of the word "seven".[3] She has an older sister, Jordan, and two younger brothers, Elijah and John. She was educated at St. Andrew's College in Dublin and New York University.[4] The U2 song "Kite" was inspired by a moment when Bono took a kite up on Killiney Hill with Hewson and her sister, but the kite blew off and smashed.[3]

Career[edit]

Although Hewson's parents were against her performing,[5] she made her acting debut in 2005 alongside her sister Jordan in the short film Lost and Found.[6] She made her feature-length debut in 2008 in another film directed by Dunton, The 27 Club.[7] The same year, Hewson took part in an acting programme at the New York Film Academy. In 2010, she appeared in the music video and accompanying short film for Irish band The Script's song "For the First Time".[8]

In 2011, Hewson appeared as young punk Mary in Paolo Sorrentino's This Must Be the Place.[9] She portrayed Yvonne in the 2013 thriller film Blood Ties.[10] In July 2013, Jack Quaid of The Hunger Games and Hewson asked fans to help them fund a new film called Roadies using crowdsourcing.[11] In September that year, she appeared in the romantic comedy film Enough Said.[12] In November 2013, she was nominated for the Tatler Irish Woman of the Year Award for her work in films.[13]

In 2014, she co-starred in Steven Soderbergh's Cinemax TV series The Knick.[14]

Personal life[edit]

Hewson lives in Brooklyn, New York.[citation needed] She received her degree from New York University on 22 May 2013; her father, Bono, turned down the offer of an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters on the same day.[15]
