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?’

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.”

Don’t be fooled by her habit of baring all – the former Bond girl Eva Green is an unexpectedly self-conscious siren. Nisha Lilia Diu meets the star of Tim Burton’s new vampire comedy, Dark Shadows.

What would you buy Tim Burton for his birthday?
He clearly has all the dark garments and violet-tinted specs a man could need, and the director of Corpse Bride and Edward Scissorhands doesn’t seem the type to make use of a tie.
‘I got him a rainbow beetle,’ says Eva Green, Burton’s leading lady in his new vampire comedy, Dark Shadows. A beetle. Of course.
‘There’s this shop in New York I go to, it has bones and fossils and insects that are like works of art. I have a few on my wall. Some people collect butterflies – I love beetles.’ Did Burton like his beetle? ‘He loved it.’
Eva Green, 31, is a woman of possibly more gothic tastes than her director. It’s as apparent in her acting roles – she’s played several witches, power-hungry princesses and killers of various descriptions – as her dress.
It’s official: even as a vampire, Johnny Depp is irresistable! Eva Green and Bella Heathcote speak to Entertainmentwise about kissing the superstar in their latest movie…
Most women around the world are powerless to Johnny Depp’s charms, no matter what he’s wearing. And it seems dressing as a 200 year-old vampire can’t put off the ladies either.
The superstar’s character Barnabas manages to attract the attention of just about every female in Tim Burton’s latest gothic comedy ‘Dark Shadows‘.
Eva Green, who plays a witch so obsessed with Barnabas that she buries him alive, spoke to us on the purple carpet at the European ‘Dark Shadows‘ premiere.

Eva Green has revealed the inspiration for her eccentric Dark Shadows temptress Angelique Bouchard.
Lara Parker played Angelique on the original Dark Shadowssoap opera, but Green has said that a variety of influences helped her re-create the character for Tim Burton’s film.
“I got inspired by many things, you know? The music of Janis Joplin, Bette Davis in her more bonkers roles. Also, Jack Nicholson sometimes, his great way of being on the edge,” Green said, reports Flicks and Bits.
“It was many things. But also there’s something quite human about her. I think she may be the ‘baddie’ but she’s kind of a damaged character. Damaged by love.”
Green further suggested that she loved playing such an off-kilter character whose motives aren’t entirely clear.
“Angelique is definitely a bit cuckoo. She’s a very big character, she’s mad about Barnabas,” the star explained. “When we first meet her it’s in the 18th century, and she’s a servant working for the Collins family.
“She has this affair with the young master, Barnabas, but he breaks her heart when he rejects her for Josette (Bella Heathcote).
“She’s not very happy. She’s a witch and she takes her revenge by turning him into a vampire and decides to lock him in a coffin for several centuries… as we all do, you know, when we get a bit hurt.”
Green previously said that she relished the chance to work with acclaimed director Burton, who she described as “a filmmaker and a painter that [she] worship[s]”.
Dark Shadows opens on May 11 in the US and the UK.
Eva Green wore a navy velvet cocktail dress, open toe sandals, and crocodile stamp gold plated cuffs all by Tom Ford.
As she posed with her hands on her hip, Green made sure that the two bright gold cuffs she had worn stood out, and a pair of peep-toe heels could be seen underneath her dress.
In the upcoming film – which is directed by Tim Burton – Green plays Angelique Bouchard, a vengeful witch who plots a vendetta against Johhny Depp’s character, Barnabas Collins and his family.
However, when asked what it was like to kiss her co-star, Depp, Green simply replied: ‘Not bad.’
