Eva Green

Her magnetic allure is the key to her inscrutable sensuality. She’s gorgeous, fragile, and utterly irresistible

 

You needed a really special woman to irremediably break James Bond’s heart: an inscrutable woman able to convey contrasting sentiments such as fragility, determination, fear, sensuality, desperation and mystery with just a glance. That would be Eva Green, the actress who played Vesper Lynd, the great love of Daniel Craig’s 007. Hers is not a stage name, but she followed in the footsteps of her mother, the French actress Marlène  Jobert. “In the beginning, my mother kept telling me not to choose this career because it is a cruel world and I’m very fragile. Perhaps I was also afraid of being compared to her, not only in terms of a mother-daughter relationship, but also on a professional level.” When you meet Eva for the first time, you are struck by her beauty and by her magnetic allure, those slightly guarded smoky eyes, dusky voice, and disarming shyness. “I know I’m vulnerable, extremely shy and insecure. I feel I can only truly express myself when I’m acting.”

Discovered by Bernardo Bertolucci, who launched her in the film The Dreamers in 2003, Eva became internationally famous with Casino Royale. It was, in a certain sense, an opportunity that turned out to be a mixed blessing. It made her one of the most famous and unforgettable Bond girls, but it also transformed her, despite herself, into the femme fatale archetype that every director wants. That is why she is twice as happy today to be the heroine of the action fantasy flick 300 – Rise of an Empire. In it, she is Artemisia, the warrior queen thirsting for revenge. It is a very virile and physical role. “I like having to handle a sword and fight like a man. What girl wouldn’t be happy to be a man for at least one day?” But that was just an interlude because Eva has gone back to being the dark, sensual, and enigmatic actress that we were accustomed to seeing on the screen. Whether it is on TV, with the series Penny Dreadful where she is Vanessa Ives, an unsettling girl from a good family possessed by evil spirits in Victorian London, or in the movies as Ava Lord, “the dame to kill for” in the next Sin City, Eva is quite the irresistible femme fatale.

Let’s talk about your latest, very exciting, project – the television series Penny Dreadful. How did you get involved?

This is a good question. I’m not quite sure. It was the fortunate turn of events that Showtime approached me with an offer to write the score. Not the opposite, as it usually happens. There were apparently a few people who recommended me. Firstly, John Logan, the writer and creator of Penny Dreadful, knew and appreciated my work. Secondly, it was Juan Antonio Bayona who directed and shaped the series. Eva Green would play my music on the set, while they were shooting. She was a great ambassador (for my music).

I got invited to Dublin for meetings with Bayona, Logan and Eva Green. It was a great feeling, that my music was expected and requested. Also, seeing all the sets, built with such astonishing level of detail, was really a great experience.

White Bird in a Blizzard will be shown during BFI’s London Film Festival next month which runs between October 8-19.

  • Director Gregg Araki
  • Producers Pascal Caucheteux, Sebastien K. Lemercier, Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Pavlina Hatoupis
  • Screenwriter Gregg Araki
  • With Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe
  • USA 2014
  • 90 mins
  • UK distribution Altitude Film Distribution

As soon as the Cocteau Twins’ shoegazing ‘Sea Swallow Me’ kicks in over the luminous haze of the opening credits, it’s clear we’re in Gregg Araki territory, and with his latest creation the New Queer Cinema alumna continues to explore his favourite obsessions; sex, mortality and adolescence. An impressionistic adaptation of Laura Kasischke’s novel, the film follows Kat, a sexually adventurous teen dealing with the fallout from her mother’s unexplained disappearance. Battling her own teenage crises, Kat must make sense of her broken family, and face the dark realities that exist at its core. Styled with a dreamy sense of hyper-reality, and featuring a deliciously unhinged performance from Eva Green, White Bird in a Blizzard is every bit as formally exciting as we would expect from Araki, and every bit as rebellious in its examination of the agonies and ecstasies of young adulthood.

UPIE will release Kristian Levering’s feature, co-starring Eva Green, across Latin America, Eastern Europe and South Africa

Universal Pictures International Entertainment (UPIE) has picked up Kristian Levring’s western The Salvation, featuring Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen, for multiple international territories.

In a deal announced in Toronto, UPIE acquired The Salvation for all of Latin America, Eastern Europe and South Africa.

TrustNordisk is handling international sales on the feature, which co-stars Eva Green. Trust’s head of sales Susan Wendt negotiated the deal.

“(This deal) strongly indicates that the international market place is more than ready for a western of Scandinavian origin,” Wendt said.

The Salvation, co-written by Levring and Denmark’s Anders Thomas Jensen (In a Better World) features an ensemble cast that includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mikael Persbrandt,Jonathan Pryce and French soccer star turned actor Eric Cantona.

Mikkelsen stars as a Danish settler in 19th century America who sets out to avenge his family.

Buyers jumped on the film after its premiere as a midnight screening in Cannes, with IFC Films picking up North American rights, Concorde taking Germany and Austria and Tohokushinsha acquiring Japanese rights, among several other deals.

Eva Green

Sorry, ladies! It is the year of Eva Green! This French beauty is WERKIN’ in 2014, pumping out four films and a hit TV show! Although Green tries to stay out of the eye of the public, no one can help but take notice of this woman being everywhere! ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” was just released in the U.S. this past Friday, and Green plays the actual dame to kill for. I rest my case.

What You Should be Watching: ‘Penny Dreadful.’ The perfect combination of creepy gothic literature plot lines and fantastic acting! Find it on Showtime!

Film You Should Watch: ‘The Dreamers.’ It’s my favorite film of all time. That’s really saying something!

Look Out For: ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.’ Set to begin shooting in early 2015. Green just signed on to play the title character and Tim Burton will be directing it! I’ve never been this excited!

The Salvation will be shown under the Thrill Gala during BFI’s London Film Festival next month which runs between October 8-19.

  • Director Kristian Levring
  • Producer Sisse Graum Jørgensen
  • Screenwriter Kristian Levring
  • With Mads Mikkelsen
  • Denmark 2014
  • 91 mins
  • UK distribution Warner Bros UK

The western rides again in Kristian Levring’s gripping tale of hate, murder and revenge on the pioneer trail. The year is 1871, and ex-pat Danish soldier Jon (Mads Mikkelsen) is welcoming his wife and son from the old country. Taking the stagecoach to his farm near Black Creek, the family are joined by a drunken outlaw and his taciturn sidekick, and when the bandit makes a pass at Jon’s wife, all hell breaks loose. Jon fights back, but his actions send shockwaves through the local community, drawing the ire of local tyrant Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who demands that amends must be paid with human lives. Paying steely, square-jawed homage to the laconic antiheroes of Sergios Corbucci and Leone, Mikkelsen fights dirty to keep the town clean, finding an unlikely ally in Delarue’s mute Native American wife Madelaine (Eva Green), a woman with a fierce warrior spirit. As for Black Creek itself, populated by shifty, characterful faces – notably Jonathan Pryce as the undertaker/mayor Keane and Douglas Henshall as the priest/sheriff Mallick – that, too, may be more than it seems, while Levring gives the muddy, bloody Old West a hyperreal makeover as tempers hit boiling point under its thunderous killing skies.
