Bono may be her very famous dad but Eve Hewson is carving her own niche in the fame gallery with her acting talents.

The 23-year-old is now the third most searched for actress on IMDb's STARmeter, just behind Saoirse Ronan and Game of Thrones star Michelle Fairly, who played Catelyn Stark.

Eve's role as a nurse in the US television series The Knick has rapidly pushed her up the list of top Irish actresses in Hollywood.

IMDb's managing editor Keith Simanton credits her latest role for her rise up the rankings.

"There is a lot of buzz around The Knick. The show has also been renewed for a second season by Cinemax without even having debuted here in the States."

He agrees that being Bono's daughter has probably helped too as "people looking up the famous U2 frontman may also find her page from his".

The first season of the 10-episode show about a New York City hospital in 1900, debuts on Cinemax in August.
