Eve Brent


Born - 30 November 1929, Houston, Texas, USA
Died - 27 August 2011

Fluffily blonde, attractively high-cheekboned actress, probably best remembered as Tarzan's Jane in two films and a TV series. Born Jean Ann Ewers, she arrived in Hollywood with the first of her five husbands and an infant son, and began working in films and TV as Jean Ann Lewis. Early films, often in 'bit' roles as Jean Lewis, included Female Jungle (1955), The Storm Rider (1957) and Forty Guns (1957). Then came a name change and Tarzan and the Trappers (1958, originally episodes for TV), Tarzan's Fight for Life (1958), The Sad Horse (1959) and Stakeout! (1962). Moving into character roles, she made Mara of the Wilderness (1965), Coogan's Bluff (1968), Airport (1969), The Barefoot Executive (1971), Timber Tramp (1974) and The White Buffalo (1977). In her later years, acting as Eve Brent Ashe, she appeared in The Experts (1989), The Green Mile (1999), Garfield (2004), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) and Hit List (2011), her last. Despite being plagued by arthritis in recent times, she kept working to the end.
