Eve Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Executive Producer
  • Born: Nov 10, 1978
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Philadelphia native Eve Jihan Jeffers started out as part of a five-girl singing group before getting her big break in the world of rap, when she moved out to L.A. to meet [[Performer~P88199~Dr. Dre~drdre]]. Briefly signed to [[Performer~P88199~Dr. Dre~drdre]]'s Aftermath label, she recorded a demo tape including a song that made it to the [[Feature~V158810~Bulworth~bulworth]] soundtrack. Calling herself Eve of Destruction, she then met [[Performer~P265499~DMX~dmx]] and joined Ruff Ryders Records, becoming the only female rapper on the label. Using the simple name Eve, she released two solo rap albums -- {^Let There Be Eve...Ruff Ryder's First Lady...} and {^Scorpion} -- before making her first film appearance in a brief role as J.J. in [[Feature~V260394~XXX~xxx]], a spy thriller whose title song she also composed. After releasing her third album, {^Eve-olution}, she then appeared in the urban comedy [[Feature~V260400~Barbershop~barbershop]] (starring [[Performer~P34311~Ice Cube~icecube]] and [[Performer~P237294~Cedric the Entertainer~cedrictheentertainer]]) as Terri, the only female member of a south-side Chicago barbershop. Eve reprised her Barbershop role for its sequel in 2004, and was praised for her turn as the suspicious co-worker of a former child molester in The Woodsman the same year. The actress/singer dropped off the movie scene for several years in order to pursue her musical career and other ventures, then came back with a bang for a supporting role in Whip It, a comedy drama following an ex-pageant queen's experiences on a roller derby team. She also appeared on several episodes of Glee, Fox's hit television series following the oftentimes musical adventures of a high school glee club. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
