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 Owen, Juliette Binoche, Steve 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.
