Hewson will receive the Wilde Card Award, which event organizer Trina Vargo, president of the US-Ireland Alliance, notes is used “to bring attention to rising talent who may not yet be a household name, but who we expect will be.” The first such honor was presented in 2010 to Saoirse Ronan.
Fellow Irish actresses Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin) and Jessie Buckley (Women Talking) also will be feted March 9 at J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath’s Bad Robot production company in Santa Monica.
Vargo also revealed that The Coronas will perform. The Irish band’s seventh album, Time Stopped, was released in October and topped the album charts in their country.
Hewson, 31, followed her big-screen debut in Erica Dunton’s The 27 Club (2008) with turns in such films as Paolo Sorrentino’s This Must Be the Place (2011), Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said (2013) and Steven Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies (2015).
The Dublin-set Bad Sisters, created by Horgan and also starring Anne-Marie Duff, Eva Birthistle and Sarah Greene, has been renewed for a second season.
