“We thought she was dead!” Eva Green shouts. The sultry 30-year-old French actress, best known as the James Bond-taming Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale, has an idea how American audiences will react to seeing her on the big screen for the first time since 2007. Green returns in Cracks, a British indie directed by Ridley Scott’s daughter Jordan. Set in the 1930s, it’s a racy drama in which she plays a boarding-school teacher who falls headlong for a female student. “They don’t make movies like this anymore,” she says. “People are too scared. It’s very raw and naughty.” She’ll also make her television debut this month in the Starz mini-series Camelot, as the vampish, villainous half-sister of King Arthur. And her revival will continue next year when she stars opposite Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s reimagining of the gothic sixties soap Dark Shadows. She’s anxious about having to play an American for the first time, but at least one part of it appeals to her: “I love an American accent—it can be very sexy.”

On the new Starz series “Camelot,” Green treats herself big-time — and makes the most of it.

There she is, as Morgan, in the series’ opening scene, fiercely facing down King Uther, the father Morgan believes has betrayed her. Drawing on her sorcery skills, she soon will arrange the king’s sudden death. She means to succeed him on the throne. And when Uther’s unknown son, Arthur, emerges to claim the crown, Morgan declares war on her half brother as well as the wizard Merlin, Arthur’s mysterious mentor.

“This castle and realm should be mine,” she proclaims.

“Camelot” premieres Friday at 10 p.m. EDT (airing opposite “Merlin,” a retelling of the Arthurian legend with Merlin as a young man, now in its third season on Syfy).

“Camelot” stars heartthrob Jamie Campbell Bower (the “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” film sagas) as Arthur, a carefree, impetuous young man who was raised from infancy as a commoner and is as surprised as anyone to learn his destiny: to lead Britain from a dark, troubled present into a bright, hope-filled tomorrow.

Joseph Fiennes (“Shakespeare in Love,” the TV series “FlashForward”) is Merlin, who has foreseen the legend of Arthur and aims to see it come to pass.

But Merlin and Arthur will have their hands full with Morgan as their rival.

Most of us know Eva Green as the ethereal Vesper Lynd, the woman who broke James Bond (Daniel Craig)’s heart in Casino Royale and tragically died as a result of her betrayal.

That character went on to make Green one of the most popular Bond girls of all time and she finally became an international star after years of working in theatre, doing off-beat movies like The Dreamers; and having small roles in big movies that failed to become blockbusters such as Kingdom of Heaven and The Golden Compass.

Her latest movie is Perfect Sense, a romantic comedy opposite Ewan McGregor which was screened at the Sundance Film Festival.

Green’s mother is French actress Marlene Jobert while her father is Swedish dentist Walter Green. Her exotic looks can be attributed to her mixed parentage and she seems to fit into a variety of roles well.

A role in “Casino Royale” a few years back helped elevate Eva Green in the eyes of Hollywood decision makers, but along with the attention came a lot of offers for the prettygirlfriend roles.

Green, however, turns them down.

“I do, but that’s probably why I don’t work much,” says Green, who stars in Starz’s new miniseries, “Camelot.”

“I don’t think I’d be very good, because I need to be passionate about something,” she adds. “I think small parts are even harder than big parts. I find it quite hard. I like strong women who have secrets and are a bit f-ed up.”

That certainly could describe Green’s role as Morgan in “Camelot,” launching Friday at 10 p.m on Starz. She’s a pagan, she’s evil, she’s lovable, and she uses her sexuality to get ahead.

“She’s such a cool, ballsy character to play, it’s not like playing the girlfriend in a movie, she’s like a warrior queen,” Green says.

It’s the first TV series for Green, who’s spent the rest of her career in movies. Indeed, she’s now working on an American accent so she can head to London to film Tim Burton’s take on “Dark Shadows.”

French actress Eva Green needs love when she works on a new project.

“If I’m not passionate about the character, I can’t do it. Some actors work and work and work. I wish I could be like that,” Green says. “But I need to be in love.”

Her latest love is Morgan, half sister to King Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower), in the Starz original series “Camelot” that launches Friday night. Morgan believes she’s the heir to the throne until Merlin (Joseph Fiennes) reveals the existence of Arthur.

The series will follow the battle between Morgan and Arthur for control of the kingdom.

Green wasn’t familiar with Morgan before being offered the role. The more she researched the character, the more her passions grew for the role.

The trick was to find just the right way to portray Morgan, a character who has been depicted in literature as everything from saint to sinner.

GK-tv president Craig Cegielski, producer of Camelot — the new epic series premiering at MIPTV with Joseph Fiennes & Eva Green — explains its origins.

(…)

Was it difficult getting Fiennes and Eva Green (Morgan) on board?
It was tough! With Joseph, Flashforward was still shooting during the Camelot casting process. But I was thinking of how he made Shakespearean nuances seem so contemporary in Shakespeare In Love, and knew he would be the perfect Merlin. So the moment Flashforward was cancelled, we told our casting director to get on the phone with his agent! But yes, it took some conversations. Eva, on the other hand, is a film actress. So that took some time and some listening. She’s never done a TV series. So locking in someone like that for five years (the objective is ten episodes per year) is quite a coup. It notably took a lot of conversations about how we were going to present the show. You don’t just lob in an availability request to Eva Green! We got on the plane and met with her…

So what’s next?
We basically got all of our financing partners secured at MIPCOM and MIPTV 2010. Signing Eva Green was considerable proof of concept during that phase. That’s just one of the reasons people bought in early; and I think they’ll be well rewarded when the ratings come out. So bringing the show to MIPTV’s International Screenings is a celebration of that. Dealwise, we’ll round out 100% of the world at MIPTV; but it’s really about celebrating with our broadcasters and revelling in the grandeur of the show with them. After all, Camelot is the biggest universal story; we all share it somehow!

Trish Shorthouse, who heads the Highlands and Islands Film Commission, said yesterday: “We have heard they are looking at Scotland.

“We would be absolutely delighted if they do choose to film here.”

Dark Shadows ran in the US from 1966 to 1971.

At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, we at ScreenCrave have been making a big deal out of Kevin Smith’s Red State for the last few days, because it’s been the hottest ticket, carried the most controversy, and frankly, been most exciting movie so far. But with the premier of David Mackenzie’s Perfect Sense, it is without a doubt that we’ve seen the best, most effective and affecting movie of the festival. The film is a romantic/sci-fi/horror film which stars Ewan McGregor and Eva Green. It is graceful, tender, heartbreaking, and terrifying. It is also a movie with a very organic flow, with plot reveals that are best left as a surprise. But it is impossible to discuss the emotional weight this film carries without getting into some of these finer points. So the following review contains a few mild *SPOILERS* with regard to the story, so please be warned. Check out the rest of the review after the jump…

French actress Eva Green captivated onlookers in Paris yesterday evening when she attended the opening of her aunt’s photo exhibition in Paris where she wore jewellery from Montblanc.

The former Bond-girl was seen at the exhibition, called Green, wearing three rings from Montblanc’s 4810 Classic collection, each in either red, white or yellow gold and set with diamonds and a pair of earrings from the Star collection, made in silver and onyx.

The subject of the exhibition, which was held at the Galerie Catherine Houard, was the actress’s aunt, Marika Green, who has put together a series of 100 photographs tracing the history of four generations of the family. The exhibition runs until December 25 in Paris and then will travel the world with stops in Vienna and Zurich.
