We thank Eva and her twin sister Joy copiously for making this possible! Enjoy! :D

“Dear Eva,

First of all we feel privileged that you so willingly accept to devote some of your scarce free time to complete once again the Q&A session for EvaGreenWeb.com. It says something about your humble character despite your tremendous success. Thank you so much.”

Here are our new questions:

1. After a tiresome period you will at last have some time to relax. What do you enjoy most in these breaks? Being lost in the crowd? Family time? Exotic destinations?

Eva Green: 1. I’m usually exhausted after a shoot, so I go somewhere beautiful to relax like Sri Lanka (I recently climbed “The Sīhāgiri », the Lion Rock, the most amazing view that I have ever seen anywhere), I like going somewhere I can explore, rather than lying down like a turnip on the beach…

2. In “300: Rise of an empire”, even though the critics for the film were controversial, the comments about you were dithyrambic (worldwide). Did you expect it? How do you feel about it? You’re probably going to be a “recherchée” (= in demand, sought-after) for blockbusters in the future. Does it mean “no more indie films”?

Eva Green: You never know how a film will be received and of course that type of film targets an action audience – it was fun to do because I got to train and fight, and Artemisia was a really over the top character… As far as Indie films go, I adore doing them – that’s where my heart is – unfortunately they rarely get the attention they deserve. You always hope when you do an Indie film that it will magically take off and become a huge success…

3. Are you going to visit Comic Con in San Diego for “Sin City 2” as you did last year for “300”?

Eva Green: I don’t know if I’ll be going to Comic Com this year…

4. “Penny Dreadful”: What kind of novelty this TV series brings us? What was actually new for you?

Eva Green: “Penny Dreadful” is set in Victorian London with great characters who interact with some of Literature’s great characters – Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and Dracula. My character’s name is Vanessa Ives… She is a non-conformist, an individualist, hungry for life, at a time when women were repressed… Vanessa is a kind of magnet in the series, she draws all the other characters around her in their quest to find Sir Malcolm’s daughter…. Vanessa is at war with the demons inside her, possessed by some obscure force but she has such an amazingly strong will that she is able to keep it dormant… Except those times when Temptation arises…. Vanessa exults in the power and freedom her possession has allowed her, but she is alienated and alone because of it…

This role has been the most demanding – on every level – that I have ever done. Vanessa is the most complicated and exciting character that I have ever played.

    Call me stupid but where exactly is Joy’s part in the interview?

  • Stef
    Posted on June 06, 2014

    David: Joy is our intermediary. Without her, we wouldn’t be able to email our questions to Eva and receive a reply. It’s the third year that she does it for us. She’s not a public person, so we don’t interview her. We let her lead her normal life breeding horses.

    May i know if Eva Green sings? Cause I’ve got this huge feeling that this woman has a great voice that matches her jaw-dropping acting skills… and if she sings, would you mind asking her for me if she would also consider taking a role in a musical film? Thanks bigtime, EGW people. My deep respect and appreciation goes out to all of you x

    Vanessa Ives was indeed the most demanding and complicated character that Eva could ever played. Every time I watch episodes of this serie, even though I love Eva and keep telling myself that it’s not true, I end up being pretty scared! She’s really talented, really! It’s like… It’s like she’s not herself anymore when she’s acting but her character. I admire her a lot. And I found myself loving her more and more when I read the Q&As.
    Thank you so much EvaGreenWeb and Joy for making this!
