BIOGRAPHY:

 

 

 

Recent work includes After Orlando at the Finborough Theatre directed by Sara Joyce and playing the title role in biographical drama Henrietta Lacks written by Miles Gallant.

However she is best known for playing the feisty yet loveable Faith Walker in the BBC drama series Doctors. Appearing in hundreds of episodes over five years, Eva had the pleasure of being at the centre of many exciting and provocative storylines ranging from date rape, a troubled marriage and being widowed. She then developed Retinitis Pigmentosa which led her to give up medicine in order to see the world (while she could).  Faith left the Letherbridge medical practice in love and looking forward to becoming a mother - a positive ending for her considering she started off as a reckless, drug taking party girl.

Eva also had the privilege of starring alongside the indomitable Maria Charles in Doctors' first ever two hander episode, Ticking. An interesting Doctors trivia fact: This episode nearly didn't make it to air as the subject matter (an elderly patient pleads with Faith to help her end her life) was deemed too sensitive when our much beloved Queen Mother passed away the day before. Luckily it was inserted into the schedule a couple of months after.  

Other work includes her role as DI Bain in Casualty and treading the boards in two immensely popular and critically acclaimed Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams revivals. Click here for more info.

Eva regularly teaches for Top Hat Stage school, including LAMDA exam coaching.  She is also a qualified Yoga Bugs instructor. For further information see www.tophatstageschool.co.uk and www.yogabugs.com.
