Thanks to the lovelies Irene and Olga from Eva Green Russia (a site that hasn’t been updated in months but still lives in my heart), we have captures and a video from a Russian news show about the BAFTA Orange Rising Star Nomination.

Eva has the amazing ability of making the funniest/silliest faces and still look gorgeous! Lucky girl!

    Thank you Irene and Olga and Mariana!

    I love Eva’s face! I completely agree with you, Mariana

    Thanks a lot for these screen captures and video !

    I first had a look at the pics, so I imagined that she was pulling face all time LOL But in the video it’s just a short instant that camera has filmed, you simply made many screens of her funny face 😀 You’re right coz she has never seemed so natural and close to us. I wonder what caused her face’s reaction.

    It’s the first time I have a look at her fingers (how she holds the sheet of paper), and I can see she has pianist fingers 🙂

    so cute 🙂

    Thanks Irene and Olga. Look at Eva’s face- expression in the last seconds of the video when she is looking at her pages.

  5. George Says:

    Tango_down you are very right. Long, thin, delicate, kind of fragile, fingers. Let’s guess what caused her surprise…It must be something related to BAFTA ORSA awards. I guess it has to do with Lust, Caution and Tang Wei…

  6. Tango_down Says:

    Most of all she has a wide distance between her fingers, she can spread them easily, she has that kind of hand some people in music call “witch hand” 😀

    I’m not saying that all people who play piano have these fingers, I also know people who play piano with tight fingers. But it’s certainly easier to play with it, it predisposes to.

  7. George Says:

    Tango_down: I guess you are playing piano too. In general it seems you have elevated musical education !

    PS Of course Serafina has “witch hand” !

    Tango_down: Piano player! I used to take piano lessons, but it ended badly when my pregnant piano teacher (who was high on the hormones) said that might notes were bigger than her stomach…who could blame me? I was eight, and my penmanship was horrible…
    I couldn’t agree with you more, though…I love it when Eva looks so natural…it makes her seem like she’s just next to you or something…

    You know, I noticed her fingers in that scene in Casino Royale where she held Daniel Craig’s face in her hands (the part where he said that whatever was left of him was hers) She has what we call here: “mahahaba na galamay/daliri” (it just means “long fingers”) most of the thin and tall people I know have long fingers too (come to think of it, most of the piano players I know too have long fingers)…she doesn’t have long fingernails, though (at least in that Casino Royale scene, she didn’t) that’s good, it looks clean…

  9. Monique Says:

    Oh, and by the way, I’m rooting for Tang Wei (go, girl!) and Sam Riley! Yeah! Best of luck to you both!

  10. Tango_down Says:

    It’s true I can play piano but it’s not my predilection instrument, I had to use it to learn music theory, but as I said I’m that kind of people with tight fingers, I’m not totally at ease with this instrument, so I wasn’t interested by making progress very far. Today playing playing 3rd movement of Moonlight Sonata would make me die 😀

    I met happiness with the clarinet 🙂

    I heard somewhere that Eva writes her own compositions, that means she has a rather elevated level at the piano, I would be so glad to listen to some of them.
    I would bet she writes in minor, some dark and icy melodies, maybe in romantic type (Chopin…)

  11. Monique Says:

    Hey, Tango: I’m in complete agreement…I’d like to listen to her compositions as well…I don’t play any instruments, but I do sing (that’s why I was happy to learn that Eva can sing as well)

  12. Liz Says:

    hey, monique:
    eva has even taken some singing lessons… i read that in context with her wish to star in “my fair lady” or something on stage…

    i liked your discussion about her fingers=)
    i also noticed them in casino royale in the same scene as you did, monique. they look kind of elegant.. very clean and caressing(or is tender the better word???=)
