The A.V. Club interview with Eva

Posted by Stef in Apr 15,2011 with 5 Comments

In 2007, Eva Green was poised for stardom. After roles in Ridley Scott’s Crusades epic Kingdom Of Heaven and opposite rebooted Bond Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, and with the big-budget franchise-starter The Golden Compass on the way, she was riding high. But even if Compass hadn’t tanked, that likely wouldn’t have changed her plans. She probably still would have gone on to a series of eccentric, low-profile features—Franklyn, Womb, the newly released Cracks, and the upcoming Perfect Sense—that are still finding their way to these shores. She hasn’t turned her back on the mainstream, as her role as the villainess Morgan in Starz’ overheated Camelot attests; but she’d sooner take interesting roles than high-profile ones. Shortly before Cracks’ release, Green called The A.V. Club to talk about exploring her dark side, the difference between Bond and Bertolucci, and her reaction to the anti-Semitic remarks of designer John Galliano, for whom she once modeled.

The A.V. Club: Since The Golden Compass, you’ve made some fairly idiosyncratic choices, appearing in a number of small, hard-to-market movies that still haven’t been released in America. Was that a deliberate decision, after having done the Bond movie and Kingdom Of Heaven, to go smaller?

Eva Green: No, it’s just, you fall in love with the script, with a character, and then you meet the director. If you like the director, you decide to get on board. Of course, if you need the money, you do a big-budget movie, but I just fell in love with the story. It’s true it’s rather dark, but it’s a very strong story, and a great role for an actor.

CableFax Q&A with Camelot’s Eva Green

Posted by Stef in Apr 12,2011 with Comments Off

CableFAX: Storytellers have revisited the Camelot legend so many times. Why did you want to be a part of yet another retelling?

Green: They approached me. I was a bit reluctant. And then I met Chris Chibnall, who was just so passionate about it and told me a lot about the story and where he wanted to go with the characters. They’re so calm and complex. She’s borderline brave but also very damaged, very sensitive. As an actor, it’s really great. It’s a gift.

CableFAX: Why the initial reluctance?

Green: Because you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into. They give you a [series] bible, and you need to trust the people you’re going to work with and, thank God, I’m very proud of all the 10 episodes that we did.

CableFAX: Up until now, you’ve been a movie actress. This was your first TV experience. How was it different for you?

Green: It’s very intense. The pace of it is very intense. Otherwise, it’s the same as any other movies. It’s very fast. I learned a lot, actually. You have to sometimes just stop thinking. You just go for it. It’s a different pace. But it’s okay. I usually prep too much, so it was good.

Camelot’s Eva Green on Sex Scenes and Paganism

Posted by Stef in Apr 04,2011 with 2 Comments

French actress Eva Green, 30, all angular features and piercing blue eyes, got her start playing a clothing-averse hedonist in Bernardo Bertolucci’s erotic political drama The Dreamers. Since then she’s worked hard to challenge the assumption that she is some latter-day Maria Schneider, yet has sorta stoked it, too, by starring as a hottie princess in Ridley Scott’s Crusades drama Kingdom of Heaven and a smarter-than-average Bond girl in Casino Royale. But starting tonight, she can be seen in the new series Camelot, playing her ugliest role yet: sneering sorceress Morgan Le Fay, who’s out to destroy her sun-kissed half-brother King Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower) and his bestie, Merlin (Joseph Fiennes), in a bid for the throne. This being a Starz series, there is a heap of sex and violence. But as Green explains to Vulture, Camelot may finally be her ticket to another specialty: weirdness.

You’ve said that when you do a nude scene, you have to think twice. Why is that?
The Dreamers was the first movie I ever made, and people made such a fuss when it came out. Sex was a theme, but there was more to it. And then I saw a lot of pictures of me naked [on the Internet] — oh my God. This was terrible. I love the movie, but now I know that if I do a nude scene that people will talk about it. I always feel like I have to prove myself. I want to be taken seriously.

Knowing Starz has earned a reputation for pushing boundaries, why would you take this role?
This is not Spartacus at all. I have one sex scene. I don’t want to disappoint people [laughs]. That is it. Then Morgan’s a nun. She’s disappointed by men. She’s not a lesbian, either, but she surrounds herself with strong women. This is not, like, a show about sex and violence.

Have you seen Spartacus?
I don’t know if I can talk about that. I’ve seen bits and pieces. It’s … interesting. But this is not Spartacus.

Camelot certainly has violence, though.
Yeah. You’ll see it evolve. I mean, for my character.

Eva Green Discusses Playing Morgan in ‘Camelot’

Posted by Stef in Apr 04,2011 with 2 Comments

Famed for her beauty since she was handpicked for “The Dreamers” by Bernardo Bertolucci, actress Eva Green has a penchant for choosing complex roles and feisty characters. As Morgan in the new Starz epic “Camelot,” she embarks on a power struggle to wrestle power from her brother Arthur, locking horns with Joseph Fiennes’ Merlin and poisoning her father to boot.

Speaking in Cannes on the eve of MipTV, she tells The Hollywood Reporter about intensity, comedy and why she likes getting ugly.

The Hollywood Reporter: What is Morgan like?

Eva Green: I love her, she’s a very cool character for a woman. You don’t get many roles like her. She’s ballsy, she’s manipulative, she’s very brave, but also sort of damaged and vulnerable. Little by little you understand why she behaves like this. She’s an empowering, strong character. There aren’t that many strong female roles — that’s why the character was very appealing.

THR: How does making this miniseries compare to making films?

Green: It’s completely intense — so much quicker — the pace is completely crazy. I’m usually quite cerebral and like to think about something before I do it. Here I had to trust my instinct much more and I learned a lot — don’t think, do. But otherwise it’s the same job. You don’t really notice the difference, just the pace.
