Mo, you have already chimed in for Penny Dreadful, but I want to chime in particularly for Eva Green. She plays Vanessa Ives, a woman with a traumatic past and a penchant for communing with spirits. Late in the season she became possessed, and not by some semi-friendly neighborhood spirit. Ives’ possession looked painful, brutal, and physically taxing. Green threw her body around with convincing abandon and was even scarier when she opened her mouth. (I will say, Mo, that I found Reeve Carney as Dorian Grey, his kissing abilities aside, to be a total bore—a handsome dull patch.) Prior to Penny Dreadful, I always thought of Green as the best-ever Bond girl. That may be a debate for another club, but it speaks to the regularity with which Green toggles between small and silver screens.

    I’m inclined to agree with him about Dorian Gray. He’s a an empty presence, pleasantly pretty with but no threat or depth, and his accent is unconvincing. He makes Stuart Townsend’s version in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen impressive by comparison.
