Thanks to Isabell for the link to the new interview. 🙂

We’ve been wondering how Tim Burton was planning to compress over 1,200 “Dark Shadows” episodes into one feature film. The answer, it seems, is to keep some things the same while also taking great creative liberties.

To wit, while Johnny Depp told us his take on Barnabas — the vampire at the center of the ’60s-era supernatural soap — won’t stray far from the character pioneered by Jonathan Frid on the TV series, co-star Eva Green’s Angelique will be a far different creation than the one Lara Parker portrayed back in the day.

Elegant Eva Green sat down with Cinematical during Sundance to discuss her new movie ‘Perfect Sense,’ an intense love story with a sci-fi bent. Green plays Susan, a successful epidemiologist who’s falling in love with a caddish chef named Michael (Ewan McGregor) just as a bizarre disease begins spreading around the world. Known for her star turns in movies like Bernardo Bertolucci’s ‘The Dreamers,’ ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ and ‘Casino Royale,’ Green’s intensity and intelligence is matched perfectly with McGregor in David Mackenzie’s affecting Sundance standout.

Cinematical: In researching your career in ‘Perfect Sense’ as an epidemiologist, did you learn anything that you didn’t want to know?
Eva Green:
I went to a biologist’s office and the lab … She started talking about all the viruses around and it was so complicated and I was really bad in biology in school, so I didn’t understand everything, but what was amazing was the sense of humor that they have. They joke about death and diseases all the time, and it’s kind of [a] very dry sense of humor, and that was very interesting.

In the Starz original series Camelot, premiering on April 1st, French actress Eva Green plays Morgan, the beautiful and ruthlessly ambitious daughter of King Uther, who wishes to claim her right to her father’s throne. However, she has not counted on Merlin’s (Joseph Fiennes) plans or the existence of Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower), her newly revealed half brother. In her pursuit of power and her willingness to do absolutely anything to take the throne that she believes is rightfully hers, Morgan gives herself over to dark forces that threaten the court of Camelot from within.

In a recent interview to promote this new epic series, Eva Green talked about stepping into the role of such an iconic character, working with both Joseph Fiennes and Jamie Campbell Bower, getting to shoot in Ireland, and the fantastic costumes she gets to wear. She also talked about her Sundance film, Perfect Sense, with Ewan McGregor, and the possibility that she will play opera star Maria Callas in the biopic, Callas. Check out what she had to say after the jump:

Question: What’s it like to step into the role of Morgan?

EVA GREEN: It’s a great character. It’s full of colors, and it’s a gift. At drama school, I always wanted to play dark characters, like Lady Macbeth and Cleopatra, so it was a dream. It’s not a clichéd role. She’s not evil. I see her more as damaged. She believes herself to be the rightful heir to the throne, but because she’s a woman, she’s denied the throne and she will do absolutely anything to get it back.

    Sensuelle, ténébreuse, mystérieuse, sublime, Eva Green ne laisse pas indiférent… Bien au contraire.

    Et le magazine Envy ne s’est pas trompé en allant interviewer la belle à Londres, où elle y mène désormais sa “vie de femme”. Dans les colonnes du journal, elle se dévoile et révèle quelques traits de sa personnalité qui concourent à lui donner une image troublante…

    Même si son visage et son regard perçant ne passe pas inaperçus et charment la plupart des hommes, elle jure pourtant que personne ne la reconnaît dans la rue. Et même sa célébrité ne lui sert pas à obtenir de passe-droit : “J’ai même essayé de me faire surclasser pour voyager : ça ne marche pas !” En cause ? Sa vie “ni fashion ni tumultueuse”…

    Adepte du cinéma indépendant, elle reconnait cependant qu’il faut “faire quelques films à gros budgets qui rapportent de l’argent comme le James Bond, Casino Royale” dans lequel elle séduisait un Daniel Craig de marbre. Pourtant, la fille de Marlène Jobert cache une timidité qui lui fait perdre ses moyens lors des castings. Une épreuve nécessaire pour exercer ce métier d’actrice un peu particulier, qui lui a permis de tourner avec Ewan McGregor : “Il faut être un peu malade pour le faire, parce qu’on est sans cesse remise en question. Et ça, ça fait souffrir”. Mais Eva Green aime souffrir… et il lui “faut sortir de ce cercle vicieux” confesse-t-elle.

    Auquel cas, elle pourrait “finir à l’asile” : “J’ai beaucoup d’assurance et à d’autres (moments), je panique et fais des crises d’insécurité. C’est extrême et je n’arrive pas à concilier ces deux personnes”. Des révélations intimes qui peuvent surprendre alors qu’elle confiait il y a peu de temps vouloir rester mystérieuse…

    Et l’une de ces deux personnes voue notamment une passion sans bornes à la taxidermie ! Eva Green est subjuguée par les insectes épinglés et sous verre. Récemment, elle s’est rendue chez Deyrolle, mythique maison de taxidermie parisienne depuis 1831 où elle y a acquis une chouette ! “Ma mère est horrifiée chaque fois que j’y vais. Ca fait très famille Adams, non?”

    Eva Green en Mercredi, ça vous dit ?

    Sky News spoke to Bond girl Eva Green as she tried on jewellery for the red carpet. She told us attitudes to woman here are slowly changing.

    “Sixty years ago we weren’t so free as we are today. Now we’re earning almost as much as the men, and we’re getting there – gradually, gradually, we are becoming equals,” she said.

    Today I have a special and rare treat for you! It’s an interview with Eva for Version Femme magazine dating from 2001! She was promoting her stage play “Jalousie en 3 Fax”. 🙂

    PS: It seems like Eva was born on July 6th 1980 instead of July 5th or 7th. We had already seen the July 6th date in an old (from 1980) interview with Marlène Jobert (view scans here).

    I wear more hats and scarves than anyone

    by Alice Collins

    What is your favourite item in your wardrobe and why?

    A black leather Dior bag. It has my initials on it which makes it extra special. I take it everywhere; it’s my Mary Poppins bag!

    What is your fall-back outfit?

    When I don’t know what to wear, I put on skinny black jeans and an oversized cashmere jumper — preferably from Donna Karan. If I can face it, I’ll put on heels.

    What has been your favourite costume and why?

    I loved all my costumes in Cracks [her new film], I’m crazy about that everyday Thirties look. I wore beautiful high-waisted trouser suits, headscarves and gorgeous printed silks. The costume designer Alison Byrne is a genius.

    Thanks to George for the heads up! Scans and anyone willing to translate the following are of course welcome. 😉

    Timide, anxieuse, la James Bond girl est une actrice grave, idéaliste, mais pour nous cette perfectionniste se met à nu

    La poisse! L’enregistreur est en panne. De l’autre côté de la table, Eva Green, sourire compatissant, me fixe de ses grands yeux bleu indigo: «Donnez-le moi, je vais voir ce que je peux faire.» Trente secondes plus tard, la jeune femme me tend l’objet réparé: «Je crois que c’est bon.»

    With her latest role finding Eva Green courting controversy as an over-familiar teacher, the Bond girl and Golden Compass star tells Rob Driscoll she’s ready to push cinematic boundaries

    Not for nothing was Eva Green dubbed the most original, unconventional and bankable Bond girl ever in Casino Royale.

    This is an actress who goes out of her way to push boundaries and explore the darkness in any character she plays.
