Eve Myles on Hollywood
Eve Myles is a very popular woman right now. Sheâ€™s just accepted a role in the BBC Wales drama Baker Boys, which she felt was too good an opportunity to pass up. On top of that, sheâ€™s filming the latest series of Torchwood so all in all, sheâ€™s in the spotlight right now!
After giving birth to her daughter, Myles thought that acting would be the last thing on her mind but you canâ€™t take the stage from the girl, as he recently discovered
â€œIâ€™d been offered a couple of jobs after I had Matilda but I just didnâ€™t like them… But then I got this script through and the offer to play Sarah…I just had to do it. Sheâ€™s a lovely, lovely character.â€
But whilst sheâ€™ll be returning to Wales to film the drama, her life is very mush based in America at the moment while she films scenes with John Barrowman to bring Torchwood back to life in an exciting new epic. But how is the starlet coping with life overseas?:
â€œI always said I didnâ€™t think Hollywood was for me but it just happened…Iâ€™m not the sort of person to go out there and do networking…I would rather work for the RSC or the National Theatre…Iâ€™ve not ticked off a quarter of the boxes I want to fill over here (the UK) yet…but to be out there for this project is just wonderful…What a brilliant little start in life for Matilda.â€
Myles and her partner are currently living stateside but will return soon once Torchwood requires filming in Wales.
