Interview: A Star is Born in Eva Bourne

Eva Bourne’s talent was born out of the loving encouragement of her eccentric parents, along with her own knack for creativity and her driven nature. To turn her dreams of becoming an actress into a reality, she made the bold move of dropping out of college in Cranbrook, B.C. and moving to Vancouver to pursue acting. Bourne booked her first role on the TV series, “Psych”, and since then, has guest starred on “Emily Owens M.D.”, “Motive”, and “Falling Skies”, and had recurring roles on “Caprica” and “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour”. She is best known for her portrayal of Princess Eva on ABC’s “Once Upon A Time”. Beyond television, Bourne has ventured into the big leagues with appearances in the films Words and Pictures and The Big Year, working alongside notable actors such as Clive OwenJuliette BinocheSteve Martin, Owen Wilson, and Rosamund Pike.

Bourne will be next seen as a series regular on Hallmark Channel’s original series, “When Calls The Heart“, in which she plays Clara Stanton, the widowed sister-in-law of Abigail Stanton (played by Lori Loughlin). In an exclusive interview with The Hudsucker, the rising star talks about her new television role, her time on “Once Upon a Time”, and her admiration for Emma Watson.

Brooke White’s “Sun Up Sun Down”

“Sun Up Sun Down” was written and recorded by Brooke White for the Hallmark Channel television-movie, Banner 4th of July.

Featuring guest vocals by co-star Christian Campbell, the folksy-Americana tune is reminiscent of last year’s smash hit, “Home” by Phillip Phillips, in how it echoes words of encouragement – this time with an added message to wake up, go outside, step into the new daylight, and live life to the fullest.

The Banner 4th of July soundtrack also includes another original from Brooke (the piano ballad “Fly Fly Fly”) along with two songs (“XYZ” and “Voices”) from Jack and White (her duo with Jack Matranga).

Sun up, sun down
We’re gonna paint this town

Turn your blues into a shade of red
Oh you gotta live your life like you mean it
‘Cause you ain’t seen nothing yet
Yes we’re gonna turn this thing around
Like a sun up, sun down

Listen to “Sun Up Sun Down,” along with “Fly Fly Fly,” “XYZ,” and “Voices,” from the Banner 4th of July soundtrack on Spotify.
