I received an email from Ms. Elisa Favreau from StudioCanal on March 20th and this might be really interesting to many of you.

Are you an aspiring writer? This might be your chance! StudioCanal is looking for a brand new novel written by an unknown, unpublished writer. If you wrote an original, unique, interesting, captivating, well-written novel that’s not available on the interwebs or in print, keep reading. Plagiarism won’t be accepted! The novel must be original and you musn’t be a published writer. StudioCanal wants to encourage new writers. They want to adapt and eventually co-produce the best novel in partnerships with small independent production companies from the UK and Italy. Nobody is looking for the new Twilight!

If you think you have a chance, please submit your full name, place of birth, city of residence, resume, synopsis of your novel (they’ll probably receive many submissions that they’ll need to read a synopsis before reading the entire novel), your major inspirations behind the novel, favourite books and authors, what made you want to be a writer, and, finally, a pdf file containing your novel. By submitting your novel, you give you on rights to it, meaning that they’ll belong to the database of StudioCanal now. You may be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. Languages accepted are English, French and Italian.

You must be older than 18.

Your deadline is up until June 1st, but, in case this is a success, the deadline can be extended.

The email you have to use is Elisa Favreau favreau.elisa [REMOVETHIS] @ [REMOVETHIS] gmail.com

All legal stuff, payment and detailed info will be then discussed via them. I’m just passing the news forward.

Her real enthusiasm is for French actress Eva Green, who played Serafina Pekkala, the flying witch queen, in the film. “She’s someone I look up to. I think she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, but she’s just so calm and collected and kind. And yet humble, and I think those are such endearing qualities, and yet at the same time she’s so talented.

“At the red carpet events, she’d pose for pictures and look such a movie star and then she’d turn round and … [Richards mimes sticking out her tongue]. I just loved it. It was like: completely be in that moment and be that person they want from you, and yet know at the same time that it’s all just silly.”

As you guys know, we don’t post many non-Eva related things here, but this is really important and I’d like to ask for your help. Some of you may already be familiar with Jaylen who started Jaylen’s Challenge to try and help stop bullying in schools. If you aren’t familiar with Jaylen’s mission, I highly recommend checking out his website and learning more about him and his mission. I promise you that you will be glad you did.

Now for the reason I am writing today…In addition to Jaylen’s mission to end bullying, he is currently doing a very sweet thing by trying to help out his friend Carissa Bodner who was recently in a horrific accident. Carissa was participating in a group bike ride when a drunk driver, speeding at more than 60+ miles per hour, ran into her and a group of other cyclists. She was the first one hit and was thrown from her bike and ended up unconscious in a water-filled ditch. She sustained a multitude of injuries including, but not limited to, brain damage, blood on her brain, swelling of her brain, damage to her spleen and her right eye, her jaw was broken jaw in 4 places and has been wired shut, broken arm, broken leg, fractures in her pelvis and tailbone, torn ligaments in her right knee, road rash across her back and the list goes on and on. She was in a coma for a while and has also suffered from pneumonia and seizures due to the injuries she sustained in the accident.

Donations would be great, but I know times are tough and not everyone has the means to help financially and that’s perfectly fine. If you can help by spreading the word and the link to Jaylen’s Carissa page (link below) through your blogs, Twitters and Facebooks though, that would be really great because it will allow for more people to hear about Carissa’s struggles and hopefully bring in more help for her. You can also help by simply saying a prayer for her or sending her a sweet message on Facebook to brighten her day. I’m sure she would really appreciate all the kind thoughts and good vibes that you guys can help send her way.

Actress Eva Green has a hard time coping with the stresses of being an actress. From her looks to tough auditions, Eva Green freaks out about getting it all wrong.

“I hate my bum. I’m like everybody,” Eva confessed. “I only really decided to act because I am crazy, it is quite masochistic.

“I am aware of the whole sexy French girl thing. You become a product and people typecast you. It is very stressful, because you take it personally if you are not right for a part and you question yourself a lot.

“There’s always something wrong,” Eva said referencing casting directors at auditions.

“They’re brutal, it’s a jungle. It’s as if you’re a facade, like a model who can’t act.

“When I’m prepping and really working on it, I’m freaking out — that I’m not going to measure up, it’s not going to work. That I’m going to look so bland, and I have no idea what the director wants. I freak out completely.”

3. Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) – ‘Casino Royale’
Nervously attractive and elegant at the same time, Eva Green’s Vesper Lynd was one of the many high points in “Casino Royale.” Though ultimately treacherous, she was a Bond girl that girlfriends could love.

It proved an enchanting evening for soprano Celine Byrne as she strolled on to the stage with one of the world’s most famous tenors.

The Naas-born singer shared the bill with Catalan tenor Jose Carreras as the 17th century gardens of Kilruddery House in Bray, Co Wicklow, played host to a rapt audience of more than 5,000 people.

(…)

BAFTA-winning French actress Eva Green, currently filming Camelot in Wicklow and who starred in Bond film Casino Royale, turned a few heads as she was escorted to her seat. As dusk fell on the Sugarloaf the first strings of the orchestra began to swell.
