BBC Two has released a first-look of Eva Green (Casino Royale, Penny Dreadful, Sin City, A Dame to Kill For) as Lydia Wells in The Luminaries, the adaption of Eleanor Catton’s 2013 Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name.

Currently filming in New Zealand, the six-part series also stars Eve Hewson (Robin Hood, The Knick, Bridge of Spies) as Anna Wetherell, Himesh Patel (The Aeronauts, EastEnders) as Emery Staines and Australia’s Ewen Leslie (The Cry, Top of the Lake: China Girl) as Crosbie Wells.

They are joined by an ensemble of antipodean acting talent including Marton Csokas as Francis Carver (The Equalizer, Lord of the Rings, Into the Badlands), Erik Thomson (The Code, Packed to the Rafters), Benedict Hardie (Hacksaw Ridge, The Light Between Oceans),Yoson An (Mortal Engines, Dead Lucky) and New Zealand newcomer, Richard Te Are.

The series will be broadcast on BBC Two in the UK and TVNZ1 in New Zealand. Produced by Working Title Television and Southern Light Films, it is being adapted for the screen by novelist Eleanor Catton and director Claire McCarthy (Ophelia, The Waiting City).

The Luminaries tells an epic story of love, murder and revenge, as men and women travelled across the world to make their fortunes. It is a 19th century tale of adventure and mystery, set on the Wild West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island in the boom years of the 1860s gold rush. The story follows defiant young adventurer Anna Wetherell, who has sailed from Britain to New Zealand to begin a new life. There she meets the radiant Emery Staines, an encounter that triggers a strange kind of magic that neither can explain. As they fall in love, driven together and apart by fateful coincidence, these star-crossed lovers begin to wonder: do we make our fortunes, or do our fortunes make us?

The Luminaries (6×60’) will be produced by Working Title Television – a joint venture between NBCUniversal International Studios, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, and Southern Light Films for BBC Two, in association with TVNZ, Fremantle and Silver Reel. The series will be executive produced by Mona Qureshi for the BBC; Eleanor Catton, Andrew Woodhead, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner for Working Title Television; Christian Vesper for Fremantle, Claudia Bluemhuber for Silver Reel and Tim White for Southern Light Films with Producer Lisa Chatfield. The series will be sold internationally by Fremantle. The Luminaries has been supported by the New Zealand Film Commission.

Have you read the original novel? Have you been inspired by it to write the script?
Tim Burton: I was, above all, interested in the simplicity and beauty of what is found in all the old Disney movies. What I like is this way of talking like a fable before drawing a visual inspiration. It was a strange film to shoot because it lacks, in the end, the main character. At the same time, I wanted to make it different from the original while keeping all its emotional heart: I had absolutely no plan to make a remake but, on the contrary, to propose a singular exploration of the history.

When you came to film, what did you feel when you saw the circus imagined by Tim Burton?
Eva Green: One of the first scenes we shot is where we were all in the car and where we were entering Dreamland. We had the luxury of working without any green screen discovering the set, extras, acrobats and jazz band. It was pretty amazing because we felt like we were going back to the Hollywood Golden Age.

What was the most difficult part of the movie for you? Overcoming your fear of heights or using your French accent to embody the character of Colette Marchant?
Eva Green: The fear of heights, of course. I learned that it was called acrophobia. I really thought I would never make it and I managed to overcome that fear with the patience and passion of the acrobats. Their passion is very contagious, I trained in a big tent where they all live together : they help each other, there is a great support and a love that is fascinating.

There is another very committed aspect with your character Colette, who emancipates from a toxic man. Is this a deliberate criteria in choosing your roles? When we look at your filmography, we realize that this is an aspect that is often present …
Eva Green: I do not choose a role by telling myself that it must be feminist but I like strong women and not submissive women. Women who have a story like Colette. Complex women who have courage, modern women. Colette Marchant was a typical artist from the Golden Age of Hollywood, very glamorous, that Vandevere (played by Michael Keaton) finds in the streets of Paris and that he transformed into a superstar by bringing her to Dreamland. She’s a beautiful bird in a cage that will eventually fly away.
