Mini Bio (1)

Eva was born in England in 1953. Few details are known of her early life or of her break into acting. Her biggest success on television was her role in Widows (1983) as Bella O'Reilly. After the show's successful first series a second was commissioned, but Eva left the show after rowing with the producers. She was replaced by another actress who substantially changed the character Eva had crafted so well.

Another role she was famed for was Corrine in Only Fools and Horses.... (1981). Her character was introduced in the episode 'Who's a Pretty Boy?' along with her screen husband, Denzil. She was a headstrong, if sharp-tongued, woman and nobody wanted to be in her bad books. Writer, John Sullivan, had planned to bring Corrine back into the show, seeing great potential in her character. But sadly this was never to be. Eva died on 14th February 1985 from a suspected drugs overdose. She was just 31 years of age. Any 'Only Fools and Horses' fan will know immediately who Corrine was. She may only have appeared in one episode, but her performance was strong enough to merit her a place in the show's history books.
