Eve Birch arrived in the village and immediately made an impact. Her grandmother, Edna considered her to be sweet and innocent, but this was not true. Eve set her eyes on Marc Reynolds, even though he was already with Donna Windsor. In September Eve, Marc and some other teenagers from the village went to a nightclub in Hotten. They missed the last bus, and stole a car. Marc was driving home when he hit something, Ms. Strickland, their head teacher. Eve’s true nature came out when she was the one who convinced the rest to keep it a secret. Later, Eve slept with Marc.
Eve continued to keep the web of lies going, until Marc confessed. Eve’s true colours came to her grandmothers attention, after Eve kicked Edna’s pet Batley. Edna was shocked and sent Eve to live with her aunt.
About Raine Davidson: Raine Davidson’s other roles include playing a part in Brookside, in 2000. After leaving Emmerdale Raine started working on Crossroads, playing sweet and innocent chambermaid Abby. Abby is very different compared to manipulating Eve!

loved Emmerdale so you can imagine how I felt when I'd got the part.
Eve sounds like a really strong willed girl - a character I can really
get my teeth into."
