Eva Bourne grew up in the East Kootenays of British Columbia in the town of Creston, where her creativity was consistently encouraged by her parents. Bourne began studying to be dental assistant after high school, but quickly realized her passion was elsewhere. She moved to Vancouver to study acting and soon after booked her first role on USA Network’s “Psych.” A slew of opportunities followed; Bourne’s TV credits include guest starring roles on The CW’s “Emily Owens M.D.,” CTV’s “Motive” and TNT’s “Falling Skies.” Bourne has also been seen in recurring roles on SyFy’s “Caprica,” Discovery’s “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour” and most notably, on ABC’s mega hit “Once Upon a Time” as Princess Eva. On the big screen, Bourne has appeared in the feature films Words and Pictures with Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche, and in The Big Year with Steve Martin, Owen Wilson and Rosamund Pike.
Bourne can currently be seen in a recurring role as Clara Stanton on Hallmark Channel’s drama “When Calls the Heart,” opposite Lori Loughlin. She co-starred as Hannah Shannon in nine previous “Garage Sale Mystery” titles: “The Deadly Room,” “The Wedding Dress,” “Guilty Until Proven Innocent,” “The Novel Murders,” “The Art of Murder,” “The Beach Murder,” “Murder by Text,” “Murder Most Medieval” and “A Case of Murder.”
