Who does Simona Brown play?

Simona Brown plays Louise, a single mother who works as a secretary for psychiatrist David.

"I think it’s quite dark to watch but not disturbing."

Where have I seen Simona Brown before?

Simona Brown has appeared in shows including The Casual Vacancy, The Night Manager, Guilt, Outlander, and Kiss Me First.

The 26-year-old has also appeared in films Man Up and Riding with Sugar.

Speaking to The British Blacklist, Brown credited The Lion King as her inspiration to pursue acting.

"I knew I wanted to be an actor after I saw The Lion King for the first time when I was about nine, on a school trip. I would watch TV when I was younger, and I thought it was cool," she said.

Eve Hewson aka Adele

Who does Eve Hewson play?

Eve Hewson plays the mysterious Adele in Behind Her Eyes.

After moving to a new city with her husband David, Adele secretly becomes friends with his employee, Louise.

"Usually when I’m on a movie, I’m like the only girl in the cast with all old men. This was the first time I’ve shot with a bunch of young people my age. It was a damn good time," Hewson told British Vogue.

"I always say my dad’s a crazy stage mum with me. Whenever we’re out, he’s always introducing me and talking about my work," she told the Daily Mirror.

"He gives my full IMDb credits to whoever we’re having dinner with."

Last year, Hewson quarantined with her famous parents and three siblings in Dublin, Ireland.

"Mum is ecstatic to see her four children for three meals a day," she told i News. 

"We’ve been having board game nights, Friday-night cocktail hours and themed meals, although I don’t contribute to the cooking. I just consume and wear sombreros."
