A role in “Casino Royale” a few years back helped elevate Eva Green in the eyes of Hollywood decision makers, but along with the attention came a lot of offers for the prettygirlfriend roles.
Green, however, turns them down.
“I do, but that’s probably why I don’t work much,” says Green, who stars in Starz’s new miniseries, “Camelot.”
“I don’t think I’d be very good, because I need to be passionate about something,” she adds. “I think small parts are even harder than big parts. I find it quite hard. I like strong women who have secrets and are a bit f-ed up.”
That certainly could describe Green’s role as Morgan in “Camelot,” launching Friday at 10 p.m on Starz. She’s a pagan, she’s evil, she’s lovable, and she uses her sexuality to get ahead.
“She’s such a cool, ballsy character to play, it’s not like playing the girlfriend in a movie, she’s like a warrior queen,” Green says.
