Think 1970s Wonder Woman, but with a twist. Under The Radar have recently done a really good and in-depth interview with Eve and it covers everything from her pregnancy, the new series of Torchwood, her fans, Johnny Cash and Wonder Woman. This interview shows you what Eve’s really made of.
Some of you may be wondering how Eve is going to juggle being a mother and an actress. She explains it by saying:
Well I think that I kind of put off being a mum for almost three-and-a-half years now. For the very fact, actually, that work seems to have always been first, with the nature of my job, it’s very, kind of, distracting, and you’re never in the same place, you do terribly very long hours, and with Torchwood—they are kind of dangerous jobs in a way. I tend to all my stunts myself, so it would be impossible for me to be pregnant while doing explosive scenes and fight scenes, and you know, kind of running for six, seven hours a day in heels and absurd things like that. So we’ve been waiting, waiting, waiting. And it came Christmas time and we said, “Right, that’s it. Whatever happens next year happens, but for certain one thing is happening this year, we’re going to have a child. And whatever happens then, we’ll just have to work around that.” I’m sure it will be difficult, I’m sure it will be challenging, but it’s everything that I’ve ever wanted and I’ll work around it. And if I can’t work things around it, c’est la vie, it’s not meant to be. I think my motto in life is very much, “I’ll enjoy today, tomorrow will take care of itself.” You know, we’ll see what happens. Luckily, Brad and I have both got big families who can’t wait to step in and help out. We’ll work it out.
As for her fans, she does feel very rewarded knowing that people are interested in her work, but not so much by the marriage proposals:
And the fans are just absolutely lovely. It’s all ages—you get little girls and boys, from the age of like six and seven, and I think the oldest person I’ve met must be, 83, 84. It’s right across the board, you know, and that’s really rewarding for me. That makes me very very happy. It lights a little flame in my belly, makes me nice and warm, it’s a really nice feeling. So long may they continue. But the weirdest stuff I’ve had? I don’t know if I can go into it that. There’s been marriage proposals and crazy things like that. But you just put those to one side and concentrate on the good stuff. [Laughs] But we’ve got a lot to thank the fans for. If we didn’t have such a cult following, maybe I wouldn’t be speaking to you today. It was kind of word of mouth, if we didn’t have those people really fighting for us maybe it wouldn’t be what it is today.
Oh my god. She’s like, my hero. I try to make Gwen like her as much as possible. I even mentioned this year maybe doing the entire third season in hot pants…and a little leather tiara, on the beach. But they didn’t go for it. And I’m hounding Russell T. Davies to write me the new, kind of Sin City style Wonder Woman. It could look like a comic series of the new Wonder Woman. Yeah that would be wicked!
Now, this I’d LOVE to see!
She also mentioned in the interview that there’s a possibility of her doing a project in the USA, and she also plans to come to Los Angeles for a visit. It appears that she may be up for a role in a big Hollywood film or TV production, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Be sure to read the entire interview because it’s packed with goodness that only Eve can deliver. You really have to respect her honesty and strength. It’s just another reminder of what a funny, warm and beautiful woman she is. A true Wonder Woman indeed.
A special thanks goes out to Mark Redfern from Under The Radar magazine for sending me this!
