2 new “Camelot” behind the scenes videos

Here are a couple of new behind the scenes video from About Camelot. HD screencaps will be added soon as well.



Eva Green weaves magic on the big and small screens

Posted by Stef in Mar 20,2011 with Comments Off

Eva Green, French actress famous for her roles as femme fatale on Bernardo Bertolucci’s “The Dreamers” and Bond Girl on Martin Campbell’s “Casino Royale,” plays a witch once again on the series “Camelot,” which airs on AXN Beyond starting April 4.

She’s not the least bit worried about being typecast as a witch. After all, she played Serafina Pekkala, the Witch Queen, in the movie “The Golden Compass.”

On “Camelot,” she portrays Morgan, nemesis of Arthur and Merlin.

In a conference call with Asian media outfits (including the Inquirer), Green (who was in New York at the time) explained that she doesn’t regard Morgan as pure “evil,” the way she was characterized in the past.

“She’s damaged,” Green said of Morgan. “She was exiled by her father to a nunnery for 15 years because she discovered that he murdered her mother. He wanted to silence her. Well, 15 years gave her plenty of time to be bitter.”

She described Morgan as “complex.”

“At the start, she seemed tough and vengeful, but little by little, I also tried to show the human being … the little girl in her.”

Eva Green on ‘Cracks,’ Nudity, & the New Tim Burton Film ‘Dark Shadows’Eva Green on ‘Cracks,’ Nudity, & the New Tim Burton Film ‘Dark Shadows’

Posted by Stef in Mar 20,2011 with 4 Comments

If you think Cameron Diaz is the only actress playing a bad teacher these days, go check out new release Cracks. In it, you’ll find French actress Eva Green as Miss G, a glamorous swimming instructor at an elite 1930s all-girls boarding school who hypnotizes her students with exotic tales of far-off places. The thing is, Miss G has spent her entire life on campus, her stories merely semi-delusional constructions that win over her students’ devotion. But when a beautiful new student arrives, a girl who possesses the very qualities Miss G mimics, teacher becomes obsessed with student, and everything spirals rapidly towards a tragic finale.

Eva Green is no stranger to dark, ambiguous roles. In Casino Royale, she played a Bond girl with a secret, who left Daniel Craig weeping in the shower like a lost boy. And in her first role, in Bernardo Bertolucci The Dreamers, Green played a young Parisian who may or may not be sleeping with her formerly conjoined twin brother. The 30-year-old actress is drawn to these complex roles, and it was the chance to explore such a character in even greater depth that led her to a lead role in the Starz network’s upcoming King Arthur retelling, Camelot. Up next, she’ll star as a witch opposite Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s horror comedy, Dark Shadows. Here she is on her twisted new character, the disturbing reaction to her onscreen nudity, and why she had to back out of Lars von Trier’s Antichrist.

Camelot: The Genesis

Posted by M. in Mar 03,2011 with 4 Comments

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!

An Arthur Worthy of the Modern Ages

Posted by Stef in Mar 02,2011 with 2 Comments

Forget everything you thought you knew about Camelot — the hulking round table, the wizened Merlin, the Lerner and Loewe book and score. This “Camelot,” the latest historical epic from Starz, skews young and sexy with a “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” alumnus (Jamie Campbell Bower, as King Arthur), a Bond girl (Eva Green, as Morgan) and an MTV Movie Award winner for best kiss (Joseph Fiennes, as Merlin).

“What if you took the guys from ‘Friday Night Lights’ and put them in the middle of the Dark Ages, how would they respond?” Chris Chibnall, the show runner, as well as an executive producer and writer, said of his concept for the series, which has a sneak peek on Friday night at 11. (The series begins officially April 1.) “It’s a stripping away of the dressing of the legend and trying to look at the emotional truths that lie behind the myth.”

And that cast? “We went for all of the best actors, a lot of whom are hot, which is fortunate for us,” Mr. Chibnall added.

In a recent phone interview from his home in Dorset, England, Mr. Chibnall spoke with Kathryn Shattuck about strong women among warring men, leaders bearing promises of hope, and why the idea of building an idyllic society from the ground up resonates today. Excerpts from the interview follow.
