EVA BIRTHISTLE (Edie)

     Eva Birthistle's first major role was on "Glenroe," one of Ireland's longest running TV soaps. She subsequently starred in Jimmy McGovern's stirring docudrama SUNDAY and John Strickland's TRUST. In 1997, she starred in her first feature film, ALL SOUL'S DAY, which was closely followed by work on Peter Sheridan's BORSTAL BOY, SALTWATER for Conor McPherson, THE AMERICAN alongside Matthew Modine and Diana Rigg, and TIMBUKTU.
     It was her portrayal of Roisin in Ken Loach's AE FOND KISS, however, that really caught the industry's attention. When AE FOND KISS premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, Birthistle was selected to represent the UK as one of Europe's "Shooting Stars," then followed with a succession of awards and nominations. She was joint winner with Kate Winslet for British Actress of the Year Award at the London Film Critic's Awards; was awarded the Best Actress title at the Irish Film and Television Awards; and was also nominated in the same category at the Scottish BAFTAs and at the British Independent Film Awards.
Birthistle recently finished shooting SAVE ANGEL HOPE along with Luke Mably and Billy Boyd and she can be seen as the female lead Eily in Neil Jordan's BREAKFAST ON PLUTO with Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy.
