The hit Netflix series ‘Behind Her Eyes’ has had viewers hooked with chaotic and nail biting scenes and a shocking twist ending, which has left fans desperate for another series.

The story follows three main characters: Adele, David, and Louise. After David, who is married to Adele, starts having an affair with his new employee Louise, things take a dark turn as Adele and Louise start to befriend each other.

This is where Louise soon finds out that there is more to the couple’s marriage than meets the eye.

That’s where the simple plot lines end. What happens from then on takes a sinister spin and spirals into an unexpected turn of events.

So, who are all of these twisted and creepy characters? Here’s a dive into their lives off screen.

Louise – Played by Simona Brown

Louise Barnsley in Behind Her Eyes is played by 26-year-old actress, Simona Brown.
Having trained at The Identity School of Acting in London, she can also sing and write, and has said she would like to go into directing one day.

Her first ever role was in Channel 4’s 2013 series Run. Since then, she has appeared in Murdered by My Boyfriend, Grantchester, Roots and The Casual Vacancy.

The Netflix scene isn’t all new to Simona, as eagle eyed viewers may recognise her from the Channel 4/Netflix series, Kiss Me First.

Keeping her personal life fairly private, she doesn’t appear to have any public social media profiles.

David – Played by Tom Bateman

31-year-old actor Tom Bateman was cast as David in Behind Her Eyes on Netflix.

Brought up in Oxford, as one of fourteen children, he was a pupil at Cherwell School before joining the National Youth Theatre and enrolling at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

He is best known for his roles on the television series Da Vinci’s Demons, and in the film Murder on the Orient Express.

He also featured in ITV’s period drama Beecham House, where he played the title role, John Beecham.
In 2018, Tom won the Hugo Boss Breakthrough Actor of The Year in Men of the Year Awards 2018 from British GQ magazine.

Aside from acting, he seems to appear in a lot of photo shoots, having coined a bit of a ‘dreamboat’ reputation.

Adele – Played by Eve Hewson

Spooky and Mysterious Adele in Behind Her Eyes, is played by Dublin born actress Eve Hewson. Her full name is actually Memphis Eve Sunny Day Hewson.

Now living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, she surprisingly still has a pretty strong Irish accent in real life.

After first getting into acting at age 15, she quickly decided she wanted to do it full time. From here she then went to acting school at NYU.

Her first major role was in the 2011 drama film, This Must Be the Place. She played Yvonne in the 2013 thriller film Blood Ties and Nurse Lucy Elkins in TV series The Knick.

On Instagram she has an impressive 208k followers, describing herself as ‘very Irish’ in her bio.

Her stunning feed gives a glimpse into her work on current acting projects, as well as pics of her at home and all dressed up for shoots.

Talent obviously runs in the family, as she is the daughter of U2’s legendary vocalist, Bono.

In an interview on This Morning, she confessed how she used to be a ‘little troublemaker’ and would often steal her rock star dad’s contacts book and prank call the likes of Justin Timberlake.

She said: “I like to take advantage of my circumstances sometimes, and when I was younger I stole my dad’s address book, I tried to prank call a few people.

“But Justin picked up, so we asked him trivial questions from the back of a cereal box. He did well and I think that’s why he didn’t hang up, I don’t know what his need to win is he must be a very competitive person.”
