Q&A session for Eva Green – 09.05.2013
9. What was your experience with Robert Rodriguez’s way of filming? I guess you shot a lot of scenes in front of a green screen. Was it more difficult than conventional shooting? How was the chemistry between you and Josh (Dwight) Brolin?
Well for the green screen, it was pretty distabilizing as there’s nothing real around you, so the most important thing is to connect with the other actor, otherwise you’re lost… Josh Brolin was a wonderful partner, he really does have that «film noir » aura about him, hard boiled with a heart of gold…
10. How do you spend your free time during shooting periods, e.g. in Austin and Johannesburg? (I hope there was (is) some free time…)
In Austin, it was a very intense shoot and as I was cast last minute, I spent all my free time working with my coach in my hotel room…
One of the nicest things about being an actor is you get to discover all these exotic places, and South Africa is one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever been to. We shot « Salvation » surrounded by baboons, cheetahs, and buffalos… How cool is that ?
11. What do you prefer more: reading books or watching movies? Any books or movies that you liked lately?
I love both.
« Tabu » by Miguel Gomes was the last film I saw and I thought it was really a gem, we don’t make movies like this anymore. It was eccentric, gentle, and daring…
I just read « A Long Walk to Freedom » by Nelson Mandela and he is my hero !
12. What is your favorite sport? (either to watch or to do)
I love watching rugby. Very sexy, dirty men!
13. What’s more likely for you in the future: to play in a London theater someday or to create a twitter account 🙂 ? What’s your relation with new technologies (internet, smartphones, tablets, social media)?
I love the internet but it can be addictive…
14. According to your experience, talent or hard work is more important in becoming a good actress? Or is it actually talent for hard work?
Both talent and hard work are needed to become a success in any job.
15. A lot of reunions lately in your projects. How do you feel about collaborating with familiar people? By the way, do you keep contact with Bernardo Bertolucci?
It’s always nice to work with people whom I’ve worked with before… your first day of school becomes less daunting…
16. What was the best and the worst thing that happened to you during the last couple of years?
Working with Tim Burton was a dream come true… I can die now…
17. Finally, where are you now while completing this Q&A session?
I’ve just returned from South Africa… and keeping busy as usual…
— THE END — I hope that you enjoyed the reading! Thank you very much to Eva Green, her sister Joy and George. 🙂

I’ve been doing some updates into the media archive lately, added few videos we were missing and more will come for sure. Meantime enjoy those.
Our first EvaGreenWeb.com autograph contest was a huge success! We received tons of submissions, from lots of different countries! While I knew our contest would be well received, it exceeded my wildest expectations. That’s why, instead of 1 single winner, I decided to pick 2, so that more people would have the chance to win. We’re proud to announce that our first contest winners are: .Rooz (who won the Angelique Bouchard still from Dark Shadows, autographed especially by Eva Green) and spot (who won a beautiful professional shot autographed by our very own Ms Green as well)!!! Both girls are from different countries and different continents. We received submissions from all over the world, from Argentina to Indonesia, from Serbia to Taiwan, from Guatemala to Slovakia, from Brazil to Australia, from Bulgaria to China (for real, I kid you not!!!), etc, etc, etc!
Now, let me explain you how the winners were picked. We wrote down the names of all the contestants and had a friend of ours who has nothing to do with EGW and who doesn’t know any of you draw them from a hat.
We’re still holding a DVD contest for original and still wrapped R2 DVDs of Cracks and The Perfect Sense. Before entering our contest, be sure that you can play R2 DVDs and that you don’t own these films already. You still have time to enter the DVD contest in case you haven’t already!
Thanks to all of you for participating in this event. You are an amazing community and we love working with you! 🙂
Last but not least, .Rooz and spot, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full names and addresses. CONGRATS!!! 😀
Don’t worry, it won’t be our last contest… Stay tuned! 😉

If you’re looking for a vamp, a sorceress or a sex bomb for your latest blockbuster, you call Eva Green. But away from the spotlight she’s misunderstood, finds Richard Godwin
When I arrive to have tea with Eva Green at Sketch, she has already taken command of a plush velvet sofa. One hopes to retain a certain cool when meeting an actress, particularly a French one, particularly one so devastating, and yet, I can’t help noticing, the only chair I can politely take is no higher than a badger. ‘It’s like Alice in Wonderland,’ she laughs, clearly happy to play the spectral queen as I perch at her feet. Or perhaps it’s simply the spell Eva Green casts?
Dressed all in black, dyed hair falling over her grey eyes in black strands (she’s a natural blonde), she appears to recede into the shadows. However, what at first seems like Gothic hauteur turns out to be something a little more delicate. She speaks in a soft staccato, with the barest breath of French accent. Occasionally, her voice fades out altogether, as if she is discreetly turning down the volume, but she is also quick to laugh. ‘A friend was telling me recently that people are scared of me,’ she says. ‘That’s the image I give, I guess. When they know me, they see it’s kind of a shyness thing. I don’t know why they’re scared. Is it my hair? The fact I don’t talk much?’

Stella (UK) – May 6, 2012
She was the most memorable Bond girl in an age and now relucant star Eva Green is having her wicked way with Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows. She talks to Michele Manelis.
If Eva Green has become Hollywood’s femme fatale du jour, at least she won’t need help with a translation of the job description. She was born and raised in France, but had a bilingual education in England and the American University of Paris. Her clipped British tones came in handy as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.
But largely her screen roles since, having made her acting debut in Bernardo Bertolucci’s controversial The Dreamers in 2003, have consisted of queens and witches and a recurring theme: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”
In Tim Burton’s gothic farce Dark Shadows Green certainly has fun playing kooky angry witch, Angelique.
The lusty sorceress has cursed Johnny Depp’s Barnabas Collins into vampiredom and left him entombed for 200 years. The film, which shows what happens when Barnabas is exhumed in 1971 and reunites with the immortal Angelique, is a remake of a 60s television series of the same name, a horror soap which had a cult following which included Burton and Depp.
“This role was a gift from heaven,” says Green. “Angelique is absolutely bonkers, and is undoubtedly one of the best roles I’ve ever played. I got really lucky with this film, and to work with Tim Burton was the ultimate fantasy of mine. He’s a genius.”
