* BIOGRAPHY *
Eva Neide was born and raised in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, in a family of ten brothers and sisters. She is one of the youngest daughters of a Brazilian Rubber Soldier who at the young age of twenty,was sent as soldier of war to the wild Amazon jungle during the World War II in execution of Brazilian and the Unites States governments mission to extract latex in the Amazon jungle so it could be used in the war effort in 1942.
Eva's childhood in the jungle was nothing of ordinary. Her jungle name was "Tonco" (a nickname her father gave her), her dolls were made out of corncobs or watermelon skins, she went swimming and fishing on wild rivers, and at night, since there was no electricity, movies or TV,she counted the stars in the skies. At the end of the day, she used to seat down and daydream that one day she would secretly discover were the Sun went hiding every afternoon. She thought that, if SHE discovered that, it would make HER the most important person in the world!
Many, many, afternoons and sunsets later, in her continuous search for the Sun, and thirsty for cultural diversity, Eva traveled across Brazil, then Europe, Asia, and learned three foreign languages in the process. Now in the United States, Eva Neide decided to settle down to pursue her long time overdue dream of becoming a professional actress.
Eva has taken some time off from her acting career to direct and produce the documentary film "The Rubber Soldiers: the forgotten army" (in post production now). See TRAILER
