Eve Hewson, daughter of U2 frontman Bono, has revealed that she aspired to be just like her dad and become a musician!

The 27-year-old has taken a different path in life, becoming a successful actress and starring in upcoming movie Robin Hood alongside fellow Irish star Jamie Dornan as well as Jamie Foxx.

However, Eve recently revealed that as a child her ambition was always to become a singer.

“I always wanted to be a musician,” the Dubliner told The Laterals Magazine.

“Growing up, I played the piano and the drums and all sorts of instruments, but I would never practice. I was a terrible student.

“It wasn’t until I started acting in school plays that I realised I could spend all day long going over my lines and it didn’t bore me the way practising scales did.

“That’s when I realised I’d be a much better actor than musician.

“Thank God I figured that out early.”
