AS her career on the silver screen soars, actress Eve Hewson seems keen to show off her diversity in front of the cameras.

The 22-year-old, who made her first mark on the industry as a gothic punk opposite Sean Penn in 'This Must Be the Place', is currently filming Steven Soderbergh's period drama 'The Knick' in New York.

The series is based in and around New York's Knickerbocker Hospital in 1900, as the staff strive to break new ground in medicine.

The daughter of U2 frontman Bono plays Lucy in the 10-part Cinemax mini-series, a young, naive nurse from the South called who comes to the Big Apple in search of adventure.

Wearing a long green overcoat, with hat, gloves and leather boots, the Dublin-born starlet was spotted filming yesterday on the snowy streets of New York.

Hewson has been cast opposite Clive Owen, whom she worked with previously on thriller 'Blood Ties', as well as Andre Holland, who has taken on the role of a talented surgeon battling race barriers.

Soderbergh has been tasked with directing all 10 episodes of the show's first season, expected to air next year. Hewson has been based in the US for the past four years and last May graduated with a degree in acting from NYU.
