Eve Hewson admits she hates seeing herself on screen

“I usually loathe watching myself!” Eve Hewson admits she hates seeing herself on screen – but broke her own rule after playing a killer sister on new show Bad Sisters

Eve Hewson admits she hates seeing herself on screen despite her growing reputation as a talented actress.

The daughter of U2 star Bono and his activist wife Ali Hewson refuses to judge her own achievements after completing a project – but admits she broke her own rule after filming new show Bad Sisters.

Eve, 31, stars alongside Sharon Horgan in the AppleTV+ series about a group of female siblings who hatch an unorthodox plan to murder their brother-in-law.

Appearing on Thursday’s This Morning, she claimed the show was so well written that she couldn’t resist watching it – although she knew it would mean seeing herself in her role.

She said: “I usually despise watching myself, but I kept rewinding and watching scenes. It is so good.’

The actress revealed that she was immediately drawn to the project after the script was sent to her over Christmas, prompting her to cancel her plans.

She explained: “I was on my Christmas break and they sent me this and I thought I didn’t want to do an audition tape today, but then I read it.

“I had to change my Christmas Eve plans and do the tape. I had a zoom with Sharon.’

Commenting on Horgan’s comedy-drama, she added: “It’s about five Irish sisters who hate one of the sisters’ husband because he’s a horrible person and decide to kill him.

“All these things happen, they fail many times, but you know he’s dead from the first episode.”

The eight-part series stars Eve as Becka, one of the Garvey sisters who appear to be working together to kill older sister Grace’s abusive husband, played by former Shameless star Anne-Marie Duff.

Adapted from a Flemish series by Horgan, the series also stars Dracula’s Claes Bang and Brooklyn’s Eve Birthistle.

Reflecting on the decision to revamp an existing show for an English-speaking audience, Sharon admitted she was concerned.

She told This Morning: “It’s an adaptation of a Flemish series, which was scary because I’d never adapted anything before.

“At its core, it’s an extremely abusive relationship, that’s what’s scary about the humor, you don’t want to take anything lightly, but it’s a balance.”

The first two episodes will be available to stream on AppleTV+ starting August 19. New episodes are released weekly.
