Eva María Hernández Villegas (born 7 August 1972), better known as Eva Hache, is a Spanish comedian, actress and television show hostess. Among other performances, she is known for her late night show Noche Hache, and for hosting two successive Goya Awards ceremonies (2012 and 2013).
Hache was born in Segovia, Castile and León. After majoring in English, she began her career as a stage actress. She performed in several classical plays with director Juan Antonio Quintana's company at the Aula de Teatro of the Universidad de Valladolid. After four years, she decided to take some free time to travel around the world, and on her return on 2000 played in a self-produced cabaret piece, Todo por la Talanga, el Chou, in which the audience played an active role.
She managed to do monologues in several programs for the Paramount Comedy channel until, in 2003, she won the 4th Monologue Contest from the Comedy Club (El Club de la Comedia). After that, she was hired by producer-company Globomedia, which decided she should accompany Manel Fuentes, conductor of the late night show, Fuentes y cia, where she would play a comic reporter. She achieved popularity in the show, which enabled her to participate in other shows, such as Splunge (a comic sketches show), and make punctual appearances as an actress in television series, like the popular 7 Vidas and Casi Perfectos.
As a theatre actress, she had main roles in 5mujeres.com (2003-2004) and Hombres, mujeres y punto (2004-2005). Eva Hache has performed in films too, most notably in Locos por el sexo, directed by Javier Rebollo. She has also done radio performances in Cadena Ser's La ventana del verano, hosted by Gemma Nierga.
After that, and still under contract with Globomedia, Hache became the hostess of the late night show Noche Hache, on Cuatro TV.
She won the 2005 Academy of Television (ATV) Prize, in Best Communicator of Entertaining Programs category. That same year she was also nominated for the TP de Oro TV award for Best Entertainment Program Hostess.
In 2012 and 2013, Eva Hache presented the 26th and 27th editions of the Goya Awards.
