Why is she famous?
After relatively brief appearances on The Young and the Restless and
L.A. Dragnet (the modern remake of the classic drama), Eva scored
big as sexy Gabrielle Solis on ABC's Desperate Housewives. The
prime-time soap opera-style series rocketed to the top of the
ratings, and those who had never seen Eva before began taking
notice. A "hot new face" according to USA Today, Variety and TV
Guide, Longoria is one of the finest women to have made it to the
top in 2004.
