  • -My next guest is a talented actress

  • who you know from "The Knick" and the movie "Bridge of Spies."

  • She stars in the new show that everyone is talking about.

  • It's like the number-one show right now.

  • "Behind Her Eyes," streaming now on Netflix.

  • Here is Eve Hewson.

  • Oh, Eve, it is so good to see you.

  • -Hello! -You look fantastic.

  • Thank you for coming back on the show.

  • -Thanks for having me, virtually.

  • -Where are you Zooming from? -I'm Zooming from London.

  • -Oh. -I have been --

  • I moved back home to Dublin once the pandemic hit,

  • so I've been living with my whole family

  • for about a year. -[ Laughs ]

  • -Which just -- I'm laughing because --

  • -Super fun. [ Both laugh ]

  • -I'm laughing because plenty of people

  • probably wish they could have quarantined with your dad,

  • with Bono, but -- -Yeah.

  • But, you know, a dad's a dad.

  • Family is -- -A dad's a dad.

  • It was sort of like if the Osbornes and the Kardashians

  • combined to make a show.

  • Like, that was my lockdown experience.

  • -Yeah. -My dad's, like, broken the TV,

  • he's like, "Sharon!" -[ Laughs ]

  • -What did you guys get into? What mischief, what trouble?

  • -You know, we tried to stay healthy during the week.

  • We did, like, green juices and solo walks.

  • You know, everyone got their space

  • from each other during the week. -Yep.

  • -And then, Friday nights, we tried to make it

  • a little bit more exciting.

  • We did, like, themed cocktail hour,

  • and we had, like, you know, Spanish night and Italian night

  • and Mexican night, which i still can't talk about

  • because I'm still hung over from Mexican night.

  • -[ Laughing ] -Mexican night was rough.

  • -Yeah. -But it was fun.

  • -But you have obviously a very talented family,

  • and people are musically inclined.

  • Can you tell everyone what 10 Past Two means to you?

  • Does that ring a bell? -This is --

  • I might get killed for saying this

  • because I started a band with my best friend,

  • Sorcha Richardson, who's actually a professional

  • singer/songwriter now.

  • And, yeah, when we were 11, we had this band

  • called 10 Past Two, which I thought was a genius name,

  • because that was the time we got out of school.

  • -I think that's still genius.

  • -Yeah, it kind of is. Thank you.

  • But, yeah, we played to nobody.

  • Our babysitter was, like, our only fan.

  • -Do you remember any of the song titles?

  • What would you sing about, 11-year-old?

  • -Well, our big hit was -- -[ Laughs ]

  • "Our big hit."

  • The babysitter enjoyed this one. -It was a banger.

  • Our big hit was, "She Only Wants You for Your Money."

  • -Oh. Oh, whoa.

  • "She Only Wants You for Your Money"?

  • -Yeah. Oh, yeah.

  • It was about a girl using a guy for his cash.

  • -Wow. -We were really deep back then.

  • We were 11, you know?

  • We were talking about real things.

  • It was poetry. -Yeah, you really kind of

  • went for it there. Yeah, of course.

  • Oh, my gosh. Maybe I'll have to have

  • a reunion of 10 Past Two on the show once COVID --

  • -You know, I had a reunion. I had a birthday party,

  • and my best friend, Sorcha, she got up,

  • and she was performing, and as a surprise,

  • she made me go up on stage, and we did the gig.

  • We did "She Only Wants You for Your Money."

  • -You did the hit song that everyone came to see?

  • -And it was crowd-pleaser. Everyone loved it.

  • People said we were like the female Beastie Boys.

  • -Oh, my gosh.

  • If only the babysitter was there.

  • That would have been full circle.

  • Full circle. -Full circle.

  • -Well, you've been doing a great job

  • keeping all of us entertained.

  • You have "Behind Her Eyes,"

  • which I want to talk to you about.

  • You also have a show on Starz, called "The Luminaries,"

  • which is -- it airs Sundays at 9:30.

  • And that looks like it was fun to do.

  • -It was super fun to do.

  • I played a pregnant prostitute on trial for murder.

  • So I had a wild time.

  • -I want to talk about "Behind Her Eyes,"

  • 'cause it's all over the Internet.

  • Everyone was going, like, "Okay, I love this show.

  • Get it. This is great."

  • And then the first twist comes in, you go, "Okay.

  • Wait. What?"

  • And then another twist comes in.

  • You go, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, what?"

  • And then there's another twist, where you're like,

  • "All right, I give up." -Everybody went nuts.

  • And when we made the show, I was kind of like,

  • "I don't know if people will get this.

  • I think it's cool. I think it's really weird."

  • -Oh, I love it. -But people just ate it up.

  • I mean, everyone's taken the twist personally, too.

  • You know, they feel personally attacked by this twist.

  • And I've been googling myself nonstop, like,

  • trying to find out all the memes and see people's reactions.

  • Everyone's just -- -That means you guys

  • did a great job because everyone was invested

  • in these characters.

  • And you're like, "Yeah, I know it's -- what?"

  • -Yeah. -I was going to ask you,

  • "What's it like to get into the character?"

  • But here's how awesome you are.

  • You sent -- You actually have a video for us.

  • A video of how you get into character on set.

  • Do you want to explain it, or do you want to just show it?

  • -Just show it, and I'll explain it after.

  • -Here we go. Take a look.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -How do you feel, Eve?

  • -Ready.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -Yeah. I would say so.

  • What is that? What do you call it?

  • Is that like a therapy pillow? What is that thing?

  • -So, my character, which, without revealing too much,

  • my character gets to some very heightened emotions.

  • There's lots of rage, let's say, that she --

  • that I have to go through in the show.

  • So I was a little bit scared that I wasn't gonna be able

  • to get there, and I came up this idea one day.

  • I said, "I just think I need a baseball bat.

  • And I just want to smash a pillow before I go into a take."

  • And our director, Erik Richter Strand,

  • is kind of wonderful and weird, and he was like,

  • "I like it. Do it.

  • And so I have this baseball bat that props kept for me.

  • And every time I went to go do

  • a very intense scene, I would just whack that thing.

  • And then, they'd call action, rolling, and I would go into it.

  • I'd fling the bat away.

  • But it sort of became, like, this communal experience

  • where if anybody on the crew was having a bad day

  • or if they just needed to get their stress out,

  • they were like, "Can I have a go at that thing?"

  • And I was like, "Go on."

  • So it was like this strange communal therapy bat

  • that went around the set of "Behind Her Eyes."

  • -Well, whatever you did, it worked, buddy.

  • Congrats on all of this. I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's Eve Hewson in "Behind Her Eyes."

  • Take a look at this.

  • [ Indistinct conversations ] -Top you off?

  • -No, thanks. Two's my limit.

  • -Oh, that's no fun.

  • -Table full of psychiatrists.

  • I like to keep my wits about me.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -You're probably very wise.

  • -Whereas I know the truth.

  • We're just as messed up as anyone else.

  • Just better at hiding it. -Hmm.

  • -And you don't want me getting drunk

  • and sharing all your secrets.

  • -Eve Hewson. "Behind Her Eyes"

  • is streaming right now on Netflix.

  • Check it out.

  • Follow the twists. You will love it.

-My next guest is a talented actress
