Attention Londoners! Eva is featured in today’s issue of ES Magazine. There’s a whole page dedicated to Miss Green and “her London”. That’s a very interesting reading! 🙂

I’ve added a scan to the gallery! Enjoy! 😀

Thanks to Lorna for the heads-up!

    Yes it’s really interesting to know something about her “normal” life !!!
    thanks Mariana

  2. George Says:

    Thanks Lorna nad Mariana, very informative although the journalist confused Ridley with her daughter Jordan. I realized that we have the same life philosophy with Eva! I am also smelling participation in Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” (see also http://www.sbwebspace.com/DarkShadows.htm)

  3. EvaAnne Says:

    Great interview!

  4. Liz Says:

    Thank you, Mariana and Lorna for posting the new article!
    Is this magazine only today available or can you buy it also the following days?

  5. Mariana Says:

    Liz: Only today.

    I like to have some informations concerning her tastes on classical music, but I don’t think that it looks “old” to listen to it, she should take it as a refinement lol. I’m not surprised she listens to Chopin and Beethoven, the two have a very dark atmosphere on piano which correspond perfectly to her character. If they also correspond to her favorite repertoire, it would mean that she has a high standard in piano, but I would be very surprised.
    I’m not sure about which piece of Chopin would correspond the best to Eva, in each one (nocturne, waltz, polonaise…) there is a part of dark romantism which goes well with her. But concerning Beethoven, I like to imagine her portrait through the 2nd movement of Pathetique Sonata :

    Nice mention to holidaying in Morocco since she was a kid!

  8. Liz Says:

    Tango_down: I followed your recommendation and listened to Beethoven’s 2nd movement… and WATCHED the piano player in the video… I kind of like it… He seems quite passionate about this Beethoven piece, especially in the end;)
    Since I have hardly an idea or rather NO idea of the other pieces you mentioned, I cannot comment on them… but I like Chopin in a way.
    With the “high standard in piano”: do you mean Eva’s abilities in playing the piano?? Sry if I am totally wrong;)

    I like the fact taht Eva is passionate about eating… I just LOVE it… =)
    But I think she has less problems keeping her body in shape…
    She mentiones Tim Burton as her favourite director… tell me when I am wrong but isn’t she rumoured to star in his next movie “Dark Shadows”??? Perhaps then, this rumour will turn into reality?!=)

    I also like Chopin most polonase a dur. I from Poland :). I end reading of Norwegian wood. Very good book. Eva know what is nice 🙂

  10. Tango_down Says:

    Liz : that’s what I meant, but I may be wrong using the word “standard” ?

    fx_razor : I love the “Grande Polonaise Brillante” (with introduction Andante Spianato), there’s a great version with orchestra (Warsaw Philarmonic National Orchestra of Poland) at the end of “The pianist” movie, the interpret is Janusz Olejniczak (it’s not the actor lol), also a polish pianist 😉
    Poland is a great country of pianists, Chopin and Rubinstein are the best examples 🙂

  11. Tango_down Says:

    Liz : 2nd movement of Pathetique Sonata is quite an exception (with maybe also the 2nd movement of Sonata Appassionata), it’s a peaceful piece with this melancholia always present in Beethoven pieces, but there’s something luminous, a kind of hope, something special that we can’t find in others movements or sonatas.
    Beethoven was a very depressive man, but he always kept a little light in his pieces, to keep some hope, for example most of the time he never ended his sonatas peacefully but in a booming way (the end of moonlight sonata is impressive), because a peaceful end made him think about death.
    That’s why I think that this exception which is the 2nd movement of Pathetique Sonata can correspond to Eva. She’s not totally dark, she’s a mix between the darkness of her hair and her clothes, and the brightness of her skin and her Persian eyes.

    Concerning Beethoven’s sonatas, the Moonlight one is the most famous, you would all recognize the main theme. If I had a preference, it would be the 3rd movement of Sonata Appassionata : a very serene theme and a funny end.

    All sonatas are great and very technical pieces which need very high skills at the piano, especially fast movements as you can see.
    They’re a great monument and inheritance in classical music, and one of the great works of Beethoven with his symphonies and string quartets cycle.

  12. Johnny Says:

    OMG! I really hope that Eva stars in “Dark Shadows”!!! My favorite actress starring in a movie directed by my favorite director Tim Burton! What a dream!

    Eva must start to be in more movies =)

    By the way forgive my English.

  13. Liz Says:

    hey guys.. absolutely different subject but I just gotta tell you what’s up..
    I’ll answer later, tango_down..
    anyway, I was surfing thru the internet for about 3 hours (OMG… that’s too long) and now it is halb past five in the morning.. I ought to get some sleep but I just can’t!!!
    I was looking for some new old interviews with eva, of course.. and I got across some quite interesting stuff…
    unfortunately, I do not find everything I would like to see!!! actually a matter-of-fact but the amount of not-seen videos should get less, I would say…
    then there is THE question of the early morning: Do you, Mariana, have many (or all, but that’s not really realistic) videos especially interviews with eva taht had been held once… I am especially looking for premiere interviews of LOndon and paris premiere of Casino Royale… AND world premiere of The Golden Compass…?? Please, help me!!
    I hope I don’t bother you all too much but sometimes, I just can’t get enough of all this!!!!
    in love (for EVA) LIZ

  14. Mariana Says:

    Liz: I have tons but I have yet to find time and motivation to upload them to the “new” video archives. The old one was an insecure script.

  15. Monique Says:

    Hmmmm, weird… the interview has her stating that RIDLEY Scott is directing Cracks…huh? or maybe I just read wrong…

    Tango_down: Nocturne, definitely…

    I’ve read Norwegian Wood too and I loved it…

  16. fx_razor Says:

    Tango_down: I saw pianist but i dont remember this music. I find in youtube lol its great 🙂 Thanks 🙂

  17. Lola Says:

    Thank you so much for your link: http://youtube.com/watch?v=klZYv-f9kCE
    TangoDown, it was beautiful. I also listened to parts 1 & 3, and saved them as a playlist on my YouTube account! 😉 😀

  18. Liz Says:

    Mariana: Fantastic!! That makes me really happy to hear taht they do exist!=)
    I would really like to help you if I can!!! Just tell me!

  19. Tango_down Says:

    fx_razor : in fact, the “Grande Polonaise Brillante” is at the extreme end of the movie, during the end credits (you had to stay in the cinema or not stop the DVD yet to watch it lol) :

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=9mI3tcOYxyo&feature=related

    The shot on the pianist’s hands is great 🙂

    PS : the piece Szpilman plays in front of the nazi officer is Ballade N°1 in G Minor, Op. 23 😉

    Lola : it’s great to have continued your discovery on the 2 others movements. I love the 1st one with its low and romantic introduction, then it starts suddenly fast with a melodious main theme.
    You can also continue your discovery on others Beetov’s sonatas (moonlight the most famous, “les adieux”, appassionata) 😉

  20. Maz Says:

    i LOVE how u can wake up early get a train to central london and go to the national gallery for FREE! never get bored of my city

  21. fx_razor Says:

    Mariana: I have signed for me photo of Eva. This is link http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll24/fx_razor/eva.jpg Could you add this in gallery? I will be wery happy

  22. EvaAnne Says:

    Slightly off-topic, but still Eva: I just read that actress Emma Thompson has been asked to write the screenplay of a My Fair Lady remake. Wasn’t it Eva’s dream to star in a new version of this film? She should give Emma Thompson a ring! 😉

  23. George Says:

    EvaAnne: good discovery. I wish that Eva occassionally reads EGW’s comments, ESPECIALLY THIS ONE (capitals to attract her attention…)

  24. Liz Says:

    Mariana: I am nerving again=)
    I have just browsed the news archive and found many posts that included videos… why are theyy gone now.. I can’t watch even one of them accepted the few videos in the videos area…
    All those interviews from premieres that exist but that I cannot watch make me go insane some day;)!!

    Once again, email me if I can help ypu with anything concerning this website… I would really like to add some of my work to this great fansite!!

  25. Liz Says:

    …hello… =)
    well, I just want to say good-bye for about 10 days that I will not be able to post any comments!
    I am leaving for Spain tomorrow. Hopefully, I can check the news segments for the following week, at least!
    Have a nice time and feel yourself to be greeted from Lloret!!!

  26. EvaAnne Says:

    Liz: Have a lovely time! 🙂

  27. George Says:

    Liz: A lot of trips lucky girl… Have a nice time in Spain (I am sure you will if Barcelona is in the schedule). (Maybe you can meet Eva in some airport!!!)

  28. Monique Says:

    Bye, Liz!!! See you when you get back!!!

    Eva might hate me for this…I just dissected one of her preferred daemon’s kin for zoology class yesterday…I’m so so sorry…It was pitiful to watch him die, but at least his death was for the sake of the health sciences and it was not in vain…I named him Hoppy after his mode of locomotion…poor, poor Hoppy the frog…
    And my lab partner made it worse by saying she had already eaten frog, and that it tasted like chicken…WAAAAHHH!!!
    Sorry, Eva…
    *Monique sobs*

  29. Tango_down Says:

    Monique : lol your anecdote is very funny, thanks to share it with us 😀
    I also dissected a frog when I was in lower secondary school (in france we call it “college” but that is not the same “college” in anglo-saxon countries, I mean the level). We had to open the body and to strech its limbs, fixing its with drawing pins. But mine was too streched, it gave a funny posture to the frog. That was my first steps discovering the practice of Art, even if it was a biology lesson.
    Your lab partner has great culinary tastes 😀

    So I have to add my apologies to yours

  30. Tom Says:

    Damn!!! You actually had to kill the animal? We only ever dissected dead animals. ICK!

  31. Monique Says:

    Tango_down: I’ve never had the courage to eat frog, particularly because of my fear of them (ranaphobia, is it?) Although I distinctly remember my parents ordering shark for me when I was younger and me eating it…
    Hoppy was too limp to be pinned and we had to skin him so we couldn’t pin him down…

    Tom: I know…lucky you…at least the cats waiting for us to dissect them will already be dead…as if that’s any consolation…

    Poor Hoppy died of strangulation when my partner squeezed him to death trying to hold him still long enough for me to insert the pithing needle…

    EUUUUUURGH!!!!
