Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson is being honoured at the US-Ireland Alliance’s annual Oscar Wilde Awards with the Wilde Card Award in March by production company Bad Robot.
Fellow Irish actresses, Kerry Condon and Jessie Buckley, will also be honoured at the event.
The first such award was presented in 2010 to a young Saoirse Ronan.
Trina Vargo, president of the US-Ireland Alliance, noted that “the Wilde Card has been used to bring attention to rising talent who may not yet be a household name, but who we expect will be.”
Hewson can next be seen starring as the lead of John Carney’s Flora And Son, which will have its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival.
She currently stars in Apple TV+’s hit dark comedy series Bad Sisters, which recently received a Critics Choice Award nomination for Best Drama Series.
Adapted by and co-starring Sharon Horgan, the Dublin-set series has been renewed for a second season.
In 2021, Hewson starred in the highly rated Netflix series Behind Her Eyes. She also received rave reviews for her performance in Claire McCarthy’s mini-series The Luminaries which debuted in summer 2020 on BBC.
Past credits include Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award nominated Bridge Of Spies opposite Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance, Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said opposite James Gandolfini and Julia Louis Dreyfus, and This Must Be The Place opposite Sean Penn and Frances McDormand.
Her big screen debut in Erica Dunton’s acclaimed indie hit The 27 Club, premiered at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.
On the small screen, Hewson starred in Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick, opposite Clive Owen.
