CONTENTMODE – You’re originally from Dublin. Tell me what it was like growing up in Ireland. What’s the one thing from home you miss the most?
Mainly, I miss the people. But the potatoes are also really, really good.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Aim high. If you’re lucky, you might get half way there.
You moved to New York at age 18 to attend Tisch School of the Arts and later received a degree at NYU. Tell me about your decision to receive schooling in the states and why you decided to call Brooklyn your home.
I really wanted to study theatre. I love acting but I didn’t want to just move to LA, get an agent and wing it. I really respect the actors that study and continue to study throughout their careers. I think you can have a lot of talent and luck but if you’re not serious, it’s not going to last. Tisch was the only school I wanted to go to. It has a great drama program and obviously it’s in the greatest city in the world.. It was also the only school that my parents let me apply to, so, if I didn’t get in, I was fucked.
What drew you to acting?
I honestly can’t tell you why I like acting. For a long time I really didn’t want to do it, I thought it was ridiculous. It’s so lonely and unsettling. Having a career in Hollywood is like having a really bad boyfriend. You love him so much but he’s totally cheating on you. There are times when I desperately want to quit and become a kindergarten teacher. But it takes one trip to the movies and I’m sucked right back in. Because I really love storytelling, I really love movie making and I’ll always want to be a part of it. I’d say most actors feel the same.
Tell me about one performance that inspires your own acting method.
Honestly, I love comedy more than drama. So I would say any performance that’s made me laugh tears. Colin Farrell in In Bruges. He’s so heartbreaking and so funny. It’s so perfectly Irish. And Goldie Hawn in anything. Even her Instagram videos. I am so inspired by her Instagram videos.

INSTYLE – For the record, Eve Hewson was way ahead of the athleisure trend. “I started wearing Adidas tracksuits and Reebok sneakers when I was 11 and never really stopped,” she says with a chuckle. “So I’m lucky it became stylish right when people began paying attention to what I wear.”
Her tomboyish wardrobe and wry sense of humor are not the only things to notice about the Irish actress. She’s also game for a challenge. She persuaded her parents, U2 frontman Bono and activist Ali Hewson, to let her move from Dublin to New York (they wanted her to study law) and then auditioned incessantly before clinching her breakout role on the hit Cinemax series The Knick.
Now, thanks to a decade’s worth of nonstop hustle, the 27-year-old’s star is rising. Earlier this summer she headlined the indie film Paper Year, and now she’s appearing as Maid Marian opposite Welsh actor Taron Egerton in a blockbuster remake of Robin Hood. “I learned while filming that I’m a good stuntwoman,” she muses. “Now I plan to be the next Tom Cruise!”
Despite her ambitious career goals and rock-star roots, everyday life remains low-key for Hewson. She calls Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood home, where she lives near her older sister, Jordan, and several childhood friends. Downtime consists of wine-filled dinner parties and dancing at any bar with a good DJ. “I’m one of those people who like to fist-bump in the club to the Top 40,” she says. “I’m kind of uncool in that way, but I don’t care.” And while Hewson readily admits she enjoys a get-together, fancy awards shows and VIP events don’t faze her.
“I’ve been around that [scene] my whole life, so it doesn’t get me going,” she explains. “Parties are not the things that make me value my work, but I do hope I keep getting invited!”
Eve was interviewed by the New York Post for their Alexa magazine, november issue. A new photoshoot is also included and can be found in our gallery as well.

NY POST – Eve Hewson finds the humor in everything, from her dangerously single status to her prepubescent-boy dress sense. When she’s not poking fun at her personal life, the Irish actress is making light of her on-screen escapades, especially the stunts and smooches.
There are plenty of both in her first action flick, director Otto Bathurst’s gritty, reimagined “Robin Hood,” out Nov. 21. The ingénue plays Maid Marian, love interest of both The Hood (Taron Egerton) and his rival, Will Scarlet (Jamie Dornan). And she had a laugh doing it.
“It was great — I was the only girl on set, I got all the attention,” the 27-year-old tells Alexa with a twinkle in her sky-blue eyes.
Hollywood is also paying attention to Hewson, the daughter of U2 frontman Bono and activist-entrepreneur Ali Hewson. With her dramatic coloring, easygoing personality and quick wit, she’s part of a new breed of hilarious beauties who banter. And unlike her cagier counterparts, she’s happy to talk about canoodling with co-stars.
“I don’t find make-out scenes embarrassing at all,” says the Brooklyn-based leading lady. “Everybody knows how to kiss. We’ve all had a lot of practice. I find other things to be more challenging, like learning to ride a horse or learning an accent or things that you don’t normally do in your daily life.”
