Biography

An accomplished theater and television actress in the U. K., Eve Myles soared to fame when she landed the female lead on the hit British series "Torchwood" (BBC, 2006- ). Myles launched her career in her native Wales before making her mark on the theater stage, performing in Royal Shakespeare Company productions, and starring on the BBC series "Belonging" (2000-09) as a housewife and businesswoman who endured her fair share of drama. After a landmark guest appearance on the long-running cult hit "Doctor Who" (BBC, 1963-1989; 2005- ), Myles nabbed a co-starring role on its equally popular spin-off "Torchwood" the following year. The epitome of a classic TV heroine, Myles' gutsy, alien-hunting Gwen Cooper became a sci-fi fan favorite alongside the dashing Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman). She further stretched her acting muscles with plum roles in period drama miniseries and stage plays, yet ultimately it was Myles' breakout performance on "Torchwood" that endeared her to a mainstream audience and established her as a bona fide star.
