1. She Comes From A Creative A Family

Lots of creative people have to deal with being surrounded by people who don’t understand their dreams, but that as never Eve’s reality. She was lucky to be born into a family where the arts were appreciated. Her father was a design journalist and her mother founded a theater company called Shakespeare Link.

2. Her Name Isn’t Actually Eve

Although she is known to the world as Eve Best, her name is actually Emily. She decided not to use her ‘real’ name for her acting because there was already an actress named Emily Best. The name Eve was her grandmother’s maiden name. She told The Guardian, “I hated having to change it – because your name defines you.”

3. She’s Been On Broadway

Many people are aware that Eve has had a successful theater career, but they aren’t aware of just how successful it’s been. Eve made her Broadway debut in 2007 as a cast member in A Moon for the Misbegotten. She returned to Broadway in 2008 and 2015 for The Homecoming and Old Times respectively.

4. She Studied At Oxford

Education has always been important to Eve and she is a graduate of the world famous Oxford University. Some people will be surprised to know that she didn’t study acting there. Instead, she chose to study English. Although many people feel like majoring in English is a dead end, Eve is one of the many examples of how the possibilities are endless.

6. She Likes To Paint

Eve’s love for the arts extends beyond acting and producing. When she isn’t busy with work, she loves to spend her free time painting. Not only is painting another way for her to express herself, but it’s also a relaxing activity that allows her to take her mind off every day stresses.

7. She’s A RADA Alum

In addition to attending Oxford, Eve also did her acting training at another legendary institution: the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art  (RADA). She was initially rejected the first time she applied, but was accepted when she was in her early 20s. RADA boasts a long list of successful graduates including James Norton, Tom Burke, and Alan Rickman.

8. She Enjoys Being Outdoors

The entertainment industry can be very hectic, and even though Eve loves her job sometimes she needs a break from it all. What better place to get that break then spending time out in nature? When the weather is nice, Eve loves to head outdoors and sailing is one of her favorite activities.

9. She’s Won Several Awards

Almost every actor would probably admit that they would love to win at least one major award during their career. Eve is fortunate to say that she’s already won several. In 2006, she won a Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress. She has also been nominated for two Tony Awards for Best Actress.

10. She Doesn’t Back Down From A Challenge

If there’s one thing that has become incredibly clear during Eve’s career, it’s that she isn’t afraid to take on a challenge. She has played a wide variety of characters over the years and she has been able to move seamlessly from one genre to the next. No matter what kind of role she’s tasked with playing, Eve always finds a way to step up to the plate and do it to the best of her ability.
