Eva Rueber-Staier (sometimes spelled Eva Reuber-Staier) is an Austrian actress and former Miss World.

Eva was born in 1951 in Bruck an der Mur, Austria. She won the title of Miss Austria and participated in the Miss Universe contest in 1969, in which she was a top 15 semifinalist. She went on to win the Miss World pageant that same year. During her tenure, she starred in the Bob Hope USO tour in Vietnam.

Her acting career contains a recurring James Bond credit: she played General Gogol's assistant Rubelvitch in the films The Spy Who Love Me, For Your Eyes Only and Octopussy.

She has lived in an Elizabethan Grade II listed house in Pinner for 23 years with her current husband, publisher Brian Cowan and loved son Alexander.

She also played the Cadburys Flake girl in the 1980s Austrian Skiing advert directed by Ridley Scott. She now produces metalwork sculptures; some were exhibited during Hertfordshire Visual Arts Forum's "open studios 2008".
