A year after the movie mogul’s disgrace, Bond actor Eva Green speaks for the first time to Craig McLean about surviving in a sexist industry — and why London beats Paris for pubs and trees.

BRITAIN’S favourite witchy actress has been considering the hex that Brexit is casting on the country. She has to. Eva Green is an adoptive Londoner of 13 years’ standing. But, despite that Anglo-sounding surname — and a career-launching role as a cut-glass-accented HM Treasury official in Casino Royale, Daniel Craig’s first outing as James Bond — she’s French.

“For me as a French resident, I’m thinking, what’s going to happen?” ponders Maida Vale-based Green.

“Are they going to kick me out? Do I need to get a British passport? Should I marry an Englishman? No, I won’t go that far,” she jokes.

Does she feel rejected as a European expat living here? “No, because everybody is against it in London. But I’m quite scared, waiting for the tsunami to come. Some people have left already.”

Still, it’s hard to imagine this redoubtable 38-year-old upping sticks for home. For one thing, the Paris-born daughter of a French actress mother and Swedish dentist father has forged a career acting in Anglo-American projects in her second language. Oui, in her next two films she plays Frenchwomen: a single-mother astronaut headed for the International Space Station in Proxima, and a trapeze artist in Dumbo, the live action reimagining of the Disney classic directed by Tim Burton (her third film with the London-based American).

But broadly: “Bond girl” Vesper Lynd, flying sorceress Serafina Pekkala in The Golden Compass, Morgana in TV series Camelot, the titular headmistress in Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the witch who curses Johnny Depp in Burton’s Dark Shadows, and the demon-battling Vanessa Ives in Sky Atlantic’s Penny Dreadful are all English-language characters. Not to mention all parts with something of the night about them.

Green — who is considerably more fun in person than her gothic roles would suggest — feels at home here. Having come to London to study at South Kensington’s Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art when she was 17, she’s been based here almost her entire career.

“I love the fact that London is so green. There are so many trees. There are no trees in Paris; well, not many. It’s weird. When I go there I get frustrated.”

That Anglophilia is probably one reason Green has been chosen to star in a short film for classic British car marque: Jaguar.

“Jaguar is such a legend, for a French person anyway,” Green tells me when we meet in a studio near Hanger Lane, the base for the Jaguar shoot. “When you imagine Jaguar you imagine them in old movies, something beautiful and classy. This felt very special — and British special as well.”

The-Luminaries-Cast

 
Sin City star Eva Green and The Knick’s Eve Hewson are to star in BBC Two adaptation of The Luminaries.

The pair will star in the six-part drama, produced by Working Title Television alongside New Zealand actor Marton Csokas, who starred in Lord of the Rings.

Green plays Lydia Wells, while Hewson stars as Anna Wetherell and Csokas stars as Francis Carver.

The drama is based on Eleanor Catton’s 2013 Man Booker Prize winner The Luminaries. She adapts. The period tale of adventure and mystery is set on the Wild West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island in the boom years of the 1860s gold rush. It’s billed as an epic story of love, murder and revenge, as men and women traveled across the world to make their fortunes.

Working Title Television will produce for BBC Two and TVNZ with Catton and WTT’s Andrew Woodhead, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner exec producing. Lucy Richer exec produces for the BBC.

Kicking off in 1865, 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. But Anna must survive the dangerous world, where shipwreck and murder, blackmail and betrayal, greed, gold and false imprisonment all conspire to keep her apart from Emery. The star-crossed lovers begin to wonder: Do we make our fortunes, or do our fortunes make us?

Green says, “I’m thrilled to be joining Working Title and this wonderful team. Eleanor has written a series of brilliant screenplays. I loved her original novel and it’s so exciting that her own screen adaptation reveals yet more exquisite material.”

Director Claire McCarthy added, “Ever since I read Eleanor’s incredible novel I’ve been completely captivated by the rich world she has created. What an honor to bring this beautiful and original work to the screen. I’m delighted to be joining forces with such wonderful actors and dynamic creative team.”

Andrew Woodhead, executive producer and MD at Working Title Television UK said, “It is such a privilege to work with Ellie, Claire and our New Zealand partners at Southern Light on this unique and magical story. To now have such an amazing cast led by Eva, Eve and Marton joining us on our Luminaries journey is also truly exciting and a testament to the beauty and brilliance of Ellie’s writing.”

Fantastic news everyone! Eva’s amazing twin sister Joy recently granted us an Exclusive Q&A! We thank her for her candidness and kindness for being available to us for this interview. Thank you for reading and feel free to leave some message or comments for Joy, Niccolò and Eva. Enjoy!!
 
We’ve added a Swedish translation of the interview and you can read it HERE.
 
 
Running a vineyard is not a joke, especially during harvest season. What’s a typical day like for you?
 
It is both a period of positive adrenalin and stress all at the same time, especially the days prior to the start of harvest. Once we begin it’s a bit like a marathon, you put your head down and work!! Wine, as you know, is a living thing. Every harvest is a bit like having a new born. It’s fragile and delicate…. since its early stage it already shows its character, its nuances. It’s certainly a very exciting period of the year.

There is no real typical day actually. We all generally wake up very early. Niccolò runs around, from his work as Director of another winery and the vineyards to coordinate the picking and the arrival of the grapes. I prepare the kids for school then I prepare everything at the winery. During harvest, we know when we start and never when the day’s work will be finished…

What does your work mean to you?
It’s a beautiful art. I find it extremely joyful to be able to play different characters. In true life I am shy, my job allows me to canalize my demons. It is jubilant to be able to “liberate “ myself by performing a role.

Was becoming an actress your dream as a child?
Not at all. At the start I wanted to be an Egyptologist…. But then at age 18 I started taking theater courses and… here I am!!!

The movie The Dreamers was the picture that put you on the spotlights. How important was that role for both your personal and professional growth?
I have wonderful memories of working with the great maestro Bertolucci, it’s most certainly one of my most memorable experiences. It’s thanks to him that I’m still acting today. On the set he was very gentle, respectful and fatherly. When the movie came out , on the other hand, it was a brutal experience. Most journalists wanted to talk about was nudity, when in my opinion there were other more important subjects in the movie …no?

What is your favorite movie?
Cries And Whispers

Is there a role you would have liked to play?
Virginia Woolf

What is your opinion on Weinstein?
I already expressed myself repeatedly on this matter; I would rather not talk about it anymore.

You are of French origins, how difficult was it to be accepted in Hollywood? I bet it hasn’t been an easy task…
In France the film director has full power of decision, unlike in the USA where even a famous professional such as Ridley Scott doesn’t have the last word! For my part the work it’s identical wherever it is an independent movie or a big Hollywood production. You may feel the difference in the budget they dispose for the movie set , the number of actors featuring in the movie… As far as I’m concerned, the hardest part is definitely to train for roles with all the different accents, in different languages, other than my mother tongue.
