Eva Green has played a lot of witches. “Different kinds of witches,” says the French actor, sipping a dark red juice that looks, naturally, like a cup of blood. Tim Burton made her a blonde witch in his 2014 film Dark Shadows, and liked her so much that he cast her as the lead in his next film, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. She’s done indie films, arthouse films and blockbusters, was a Bond girl in the best Daniel Craig Bond Casino Royale and put in some serious action hero green-screen time with 300: Rise of an Empire and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. If there’s a complicated woman who may have a murderous side, or a supernatural side, or both, then Eva is top of the list.

She’s suitably goth-like today, dressed entirely in black and speaking in such a whisper that it’s sometimes hard to hear her. She says ‘I don’t know’ before she gives an answer, almost every time; sometimes to deflect, if she doesn’t necessarily want to get into something, and sometimes because she often seems unsure of herself. She says she was desperately reserved as a kid. Actors do that ‘Don’t look at me I’m shy’ false modesty thing all the time, but with her, you can believe it.

Right now she’s putting her dark side through its paces in the third season of Penny Dreadful, in which she plays Vanessa Ives, a demon-hunting medium who was possessed by the devil and fell in love with a werewolf. This time she looks set to romance a suspiciously mysterious stranger, as well as going through some early form of proto-psychotherapy. We talked about how it feels to be Hollywood’s go-to goth and why everyone expects her to take her clothes off on screen.

VICE: I just saw the first episode of Penny Dreadful season three.
Eva Green: Oh god. I haven’t seen it. I am not good at watching myself.

So what do you do when you have premieres and things like that? Do you just leave?
Yeah, actually it’s funny, I was thinking about it this morning on the train. Most of the time it’s OK but then one director, I won’t mention his name, took it really, really badly that I couldn’t stay. I stayed for the first 10 minutes then I had to leave. I just can’t… I don’t know, it’s weird.

Because you’re scrutinising yourself?
Yeah. It’s too subjective. It’s negative narcissism. It’s not good. I wish I could. Some actors can [watch themselves and] improve. I can’t.

Penny Dreadful – The all-new Victorian horrors coming your way in the third season of the hit show.

In addition to Jekyll, season three will introduce another physician pulled from the pages of Victoriana – Bram Stoker’s Dr Seward played (in a bit of gender reversal) by veteran actress Patti LuPone. As therapist to Eva Green’s Vanessa Ives, Seward is tasked with overseeing the enigmatic medium’s mental reconstruction in the wake of season two’s narrowing events.

(…)

“The thing about Dr Seward is she’s trying desperately to help Vanessa, but she’s a woman of science. So the idea of the supernatural and the occult are things that for her aren’t necessarily grounded in reality. But eventually she comes around to understanding who Vanessa is, and who is behind all of the darkness inside her.”

LuPone appeared in season two of Penny Dreadful as the now deceased witch Joan Clayton (aka the Cut-Wife). But “when the idea of creating someone who helped Vanessa came up, John said, ‘I have to have Patti back.’ It’s revealed throughout the season that perhaps she has some sort of blood relation with Joan Clayton, with the Cut-Wife, so you’ll come to understand why the same actor is playing two different roles.”

These stills are official and released by Showtime. So if Showtime thought they were too spoilerish they wouldn’t release them. However, some fans believe that stills can be spoilerish. Don’t click if you’re one of them and “don’t want be spoiled”. You’ve been warned! Don’t complain later!

A day in the life of French cinema.

From Ireland. Eva Green sent us this postcard. “Crazy day on the third season of Penny Dreadful… A little break with my hairdresser Orla and my makeup artist Morna. My character is locked in a cell and the whole crew is losing their minds.”

The actress, muse of L’Oréal Professionnel, shares with us her indispensable treatments and make-up. And reveals to us her vegetarian advices.

What time do you wake up in the morning?
6:30am or 7am. I have a clock in my head. I never sleep in late, this is my Swedish side.

Do you go out without make-up on?
Yes, most of the time. I make little effort in everyday life, I prefer to play the Invisible Woman and let my skin breathe. Maybe that’s why I make a big fuss about it on the red carpet, with extreme looks.

Is sport a part of your life?
Every day when I wake up, I go for a run or do at least 20 minutes of elliptical machine. It’s essential for my balance.

What are the beauty products that you can’t live without?
The Pro Fiber shampoo and the Re-Charge monodose by L’Oréal Professionnel that help strengthen my hair over time. The very moisturising Magic Cream by Charlotte Tilbury. The skincare products and cosmetics by that make-up artist are extraordinary and innovative. And the lipstick Lady Danger by Mac, an orange-red that highlights the eyes and is enough when we want to turn heads without putting make-up on other parts of the face.

What perspective did your mother bring to your physical appearance?
That of a mama bear, concerned for my happiness and my health. I always saw her put lots of moisturising cream on. She taught me the importance of staying hydrated, including drinking water.
