Get to know the London-based genius behind The Creature, Witches and The Werewolf as she takes us behind the scenes of the show and tell us what to expect on season 3…
A lot of Penny Dreadful fans already know you by name but could you tell us more about yourself?
I am the Key Prosthetic Make-Up Artist on Penny Dreadful and I work closely alongside Nick Dudman, the HOD. I apply the prosthetic makeups with Nick or by myself with the exception of Sembene’s facial scarring which is done by the make-up department.
The design and look of the characters is a collaboration between Nick and I. The final look and maintenance of the actors on set is all part of my job. I am a Make-Up Designer in my own right and I have the versatility of also being a beauty make-up artist. That skill has proven extremely beneficial whilst working on Penny Dreadful. Nick wanted someone to work with him who had that versatility because we were not creating rubber monsters. We were creating characters. I am incredibly passionate about my work and always strive to improve and be the best I possibly can. Trying to have a work / life balance is really important as this type of job can all consume if you allow it. Practicing yoga is part of my life and helps me focus and switch off from work at the same time.
Milan, 2010. To mark the 150th anniversary of Campari, Campari Orange – a symbol of the brand’s long history – is revisited with a modern twist to show that passion, when authentic, can withstand the passing of time.
We wanted to take a moment and address the issue of the events and photoshoot sections being removed from the gallery. When our old host closed its doors and we had to relocate the site quickly, we, as a staff decided it would be in our best interest to remove these sections in order to avoid any potential issues that might arise after the move. The site still has plenty of other wonderful content to peruse and we hope that our loyal visitors will continue to visit and enjoy all that we have to offer. Thank you for your loyalty and for visiting EGW for all things Eva Green!
In the race to have the first big female-fronted superhero movie (if race is the right word for something that’s taken decades to happen – which it isn’t), Marvel might apparently have a new frontrunner to play Carol Danvers in “Captain Marvel” in the shape of Rebecca Ferguson, but Warner Bros. and DC are undoubtedly in the lead: they had multiple writers penning drafts simultaneously, a director in the shape of “Monster”’s Patty Jenkins, a love interest in Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor, and even a Wonder Woman, in Gal Gadot, who’ll first appear in next year’s “Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.”
And now, according to the latest rumor from the rumor-hole, they might have some villains. Heroic Hollywood, who are normally well placed to know about this sort of thing, report that the studio are targeting Eva Green andSean Bean to play the villains in the movie.
Neither are officially signed on, but if she was to get that far, Green would seemingly play sorceress Circe, a key figure in Homer’s Odyssey who’s been a traditional supervillain in the DC-verse since 1959, and an immortal intent on wiping out the Amazons, including Wonder Woman herself. Bean, meanwhile, would be Ares the god of war, and an even longer-serving adversary of Diana Prince (it’s not the actor’s first brush with the pantheon: Bean also played a Greek God, in that case Zeus, in “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief”).
It’s still all to play for, but neither have been particularly shy of taking blockbuster paychecks, and with filming due to begin in November, the Warners do need to find someone to fill the roles sooner rather than later. Once they do, “Wonder Woman” will open on June 23rd, 2017.
The Broadway legend, who guest starred as Joan Clayton (aka the Cut-Wife) in the sophomore season of Showtime’s Victorian England-set horror series, is back for season 3 as a series regular. She’ll also be playing a new role: Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Eva Green’s bewitching Vanessa Ives with an unconventional new approach.
The third season, which returns in 2016 with nine episodes, will also be adding another familiar name to the list of literary characters who appear on the show. Shazad Latif (“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) will play an interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll.
“Penny Dreadful” has also added Wes Studi as a series regular. The “Hell on Wheels” and “Red Road” alum plays Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett). He also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton).
Guest stars also include Christian Camargo as Dr. Alexander Sweet, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa; Sam Barnett as Dr. Seward’s mysterious young secretary; and Jessica Barden as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney).
“Penny Dreadful” is created, written and executive produced by John Logan and executive produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris, both of Neal Street Productions. It is a co-production of Showtime and Sky.
Eva Green says wearing lipstick helps her feel “comfortable”.
The 35-year-old actress is known for her glamorous appearance and always brings out her inner femme fatale when she hits the red carpet. A major part of her look is sultry make-up and the stunning brunette reveals that she could never go au naturel with her pout.
“I’m a huge lipstick fan,” she confided in the British edition of InStyle magazine. “It’s the one thing I always wear. I can go out with very little mascara and just red lips and feel totally comfortable. YSL Beauty has beautiful strong, bright shades.”
Just as Eva doesn’t mix up her make-up look too much, she stays faithful to one fragrance. For many years she’s used Santa Maria Novella’s Melograno, even feeling it’s become “a part of” her. When it comes to looking after her body, she sticks to moisturiser from Sisley.
But Eva isn’t just stylish off screen; in action flick 300: Rise of an Empire she went gothic glam with kohl-smudged eyes and full battle gear. While she loved the look, Eva admits that some of her character’s outfits weren’t practical for her energetic scenes.
“I always try to take a hand in the costumes because you have to be comfortable,” she previously explained to UK magazine ShortList.
“But my hair actually got caught in one of the outfits I wore. I was in the middle of this huge fight scene and had to go, ‘Oh f**k, wait a second.'”
USA, around 1922. This is the Stars and Stripes version of the Negroni. It uses the characteristic American spirit – rye whiskey- instead of gin and became famous in the 50s. It is both strong and fascinating, like its most famous admirers, the male stars of Hollywood of the time.
There’s a dreamlike quality about Eva Green. Her stunning dark looks and impenetrable smoky eyes appear almost unreal, belonging in a whimsical fairy tale, or a Tim Burton set. Her on-screen characters only elevate the intrigue, from James Bond’s wayward lover in Casino Royale (2006) to a creepy clairvoyant on TV’s favourite horror-drama,Penny Dreadful. In Green’s make-believe world she’s always confident, alluring and not without an evil streak. “But I wouldn’t call myself self-confident in real life,” she admits. “It’s always been a fantasy for me to play powerful women — with some cracks in their personality — because I am not like that.” And though she’s found firm footing as Hollywood’s go-to femme fatale, she’s not entirely thrilled about it. “I don’t like being put in a box,” she says. “I’m many things.” Here, she gives us a glimpse of some of those things, as well as her inner demons, her beauty rituals and the big, bad Hollywood beast.
On inhabiting Tim Burton’s universe
“He’s like a child; happy and easygoing with a passion that is contagious. In Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children [out next year], my character is like a dark Mary Poppins. It’s a beautiful story set in the ‘40s and all the other roles are played by children — this was my first time working with children, and that was a bit of a challenge. The movie is slightly bonkers, but in a poetic way.”
On her red-carpet ritual
“The last thing I do before stepping onto the red carpet is put on some perfume. I’ve been very faithful to this brand called Santa Maria Novella. They have a fragrance called Melograno that’s very simple, and very me.”
On being the new spokesperson for L’Oréal Professionnel
“My hair is thin, fragile and tortured every day. My hairdresser always uses L’Oréal Professionnel hair products. I tried their deep moisturising Pro Fiber treatment, which is magical, and their new Wet Domination by Tecni.ART styling range. I also love oils, both for the body and the hair. I use L’Oréal’s Mythic Oil twice a month — leaving it on overnight and shampooing the next morning.”
On surviving Hollywood
“It’s a tough business. As an actor you have to keep your vulnerability for your roles, and at the same time, you have to build an armour around yourself because there are so many… I have to find a polite word… arseholes. You have to have faith in yourself and remain strong. And, if you find that you’ve lost your passion one day, I think you should move on to something else.”
