People Shocked To Discover Behind Her Eyes Star Is Bono's Daughter

People Shocked To Discover Behind Her Eyes Star Is Bono's Daughter

If you've been looking for a series to binge recently - of course you have - you will no doubt have come across Netflix's new psychological thriller Behind Her Eyes. Who knows, you may even have watched it.

But did you know that the lead actor, Eve Hewson, is, in fact, Bono's daughter? No? Well, you're not alone - it turns out that tons of people out there didn't have a clue either.

The 29-year-old plays Adele, whose husband is having an affair with one of his patients. And without giving much away, from there, it gets pretty murky.

Despite some criticism, the series has proven extremely popular and is currently the number one trending series on the streaming site.


But while it's a very bizarre show, viewers have been most surprised by finding out that Eve's dad is the lead singer of U2.

One fan said: "Really likin #BehindHerEyes Had no idea Eve Hewson was Bono's daughter."

Another chimed in with: "So the girl who plays Adele (Eve Hewson) in #behindhereyes is the daughter of U2's lead singer BONO! Wow."


While a third wrote: "Just finished watching the first ep. of Behind Her Eyes. Goggled the actress who plays the wife. It's Bono's daughter (Eve Hewson). My mind is blown."

If you're wondering what exactly it's all about, here's the synopsis: "Simona Brown plays Louise, a single mother who has an affair with her psychiatrist boss David (Tom Bateman).

"Her life takes a strange turn when she later befriends his wife Adele (Hewson), and she finds herself caught in a web of secrets and lies where nothing is what it seems.


"Also starring Robert Aramayo, Behind Her Eyes is produced by Left Bank Pictures (The Crown) and written by Steve Lightfoot and Angela LaManna, based on the best-selling novel by Sarah Pinborough."

Aside from Eve's lineage, the series has also had people talking about the huge twist at its core.

And while we're not going to ruin it for you if you haven't seen it, speaking about it earlier this year, Eve said she had no idea it was coming when she went for the audition.


She told Digital Spy: "I had to do my audition in the middle of the night because I was shooting something else, and I only had time to read the first episode.

"So I didn't know what the twist was. And so I had a very different take on the character, and I thought it was a completely different show than it actually is.

"So when I then met with [director] Erik [Richter Strand] on Skype, he said, 'I know you haven't read the script. I'm going to have to tell you - this is the show, this is the twist...'

"I was shocked. I was genuinely shocked. And kind of excited because it's just so left field, I really didn't see that coming at all."
