Longoria’s timing couldn’t have been better, and she was determined to see where her acting dreams would take her. Her persistence has certainly paid off. After landing roles on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “General Hospital,” and co-starring on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” she auditioned and won the role of “Isabella” on the popular series “The Young and the Restless",for which she won an Alma award for "Outstanding Actress in a daytime drama". After her sucess in daytime TV Eva was casted to play Gabrielle Solis in the now explosively popular show, "'Desperate Housewives".

Her acting talent also hasn't gone un noticed. She's was nominated for a Golden Globe award and won a Screen Actors Guild award along with the cast of Desperate Housewives. Longoria's popularity has reached such heights that industry giants such as Pepsi and L'Oreal have chosen her to star in commercials for their products.
Longoria's future in movies is also growing. Eva recently had her big screen debut in the action thriller "The Sentinel" along with big names, Michael Douglas and Keifer Sutherland. Her second movie "Harsh Times" will hit movie theaters this year. In 2007 fans will get to see Eva in a romantic comedy titled "How I Met My Boyfriend's Dead Fiance".
