“I love extremes”

Fatale in Sin City, possessed in Penny Dreadful, the actress with 50 shades of dark is now shooting the new Tim Burton film. Today, the bewitched muse of L’Oréal Professionnel dreams of comedy.

Daughter of a cinema icon of the 70’s – paragon of the sexy and cheeky French – and of a Swedish dentist, Eva Green resembles nobody else, even if she comes with a twin sister the story reveals nothing about but the name. 

The chosen one, it’s her. Eva Green. Even if it may sound like a pseudonym, it isn’t one. Eva, Ève, biblical name of legendary echo and cinematographic reminiscence – Losey, Mankiewicz. Green : the green of her eyes? They’re blue, huge and particularly expressive. Back in the days of mute cinema, she would have made acarnage. Although it would have been a shame, her low voice is a treasure.

“I’m almost invisible. Black leggings, black t-shirt. I don’t really take time to dress in the morning. I don’t look in the mirror. I should probably wear a few dresses….I should make more efforts, in fact. I don’t make enough efforts.”

“I’d love to shoot a french movie. I need a french project that really pleases me. Maybe to have more freedom, as french is my native language. I always liked english. I could have been an english teacher…I dont know…but it’s really a second language for me.”

“My lack of confidence is disastrous. I still don’t know what I’m missing. It’s an inner thing I can’t untie, and being successful doesn’t change anything to it. This job is a constant questioning. I can put on a strong face, but I don’t get used to it… On the other hand, I know that being an actress doesn’t solve everything. We live intensely, but it’s not enough. I don’t want to wake up at age 50 telling myself that I’ve done nothing but films.” – Eva Green

By Patricia Dahaner

 

For a former ‘Bond’ girl, Eva Green certainly knows how to keep under the radar. After two years of living quietly in Ireland, she says that she’s happier walking the Wicklow hills – make-up free – than in a Dublin nightclub

Eva Green has been doing so much work in Ireland in recent years that the Paris-born actress jokes that she should get herself an Irish passport.

Living in Dalkey, Co. Dublin, for the past two years, she is very at home in a house by the sea, to which she retreats each night, after days at Ardmore Studios filming Penny Dreadful.

A self-described introvert – who says she took up acting to help with her acute shyness – the embrace of the coastline of Dublin Bay comforts her.

“There’s something very magical and very spiritual in Ireland. The nature is very particular here and there are forces,” she tells me in her very quiet voice. It’s a statement befitting of Vanessa Ives, the mysterious clairvoyant that Eva plays in supernatural TV series Penny Dreadful.

Though set in Victorian London, the show – which also stars Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett and is now in its second series for American network Showtime – is filmed in Dublin. When we meet on the set at Ardmore Studios, 34-year-old Eva is dressed in a purple silk shirt and black tie from Dolce & Gabbana over a pair of black leather trousers and high boots. She’s friendly and wants to give a decent interview, but there’s also an arms-length reserve which she can’t help but give off. There’s almost no trace of a French accent when she speaks.

“I shot Cracks here in Ireland, it’s a small film. A long time ago, I did a TV show here also, called Camelot. I’ve spent two years here now doing Penny Dreadful, so I think I should get an Irish passport!

April 17th, 2015   G Interview, Penny Dreadful, Site Exclusive Comments Off on The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful Book Author Sharon Gosling Talks About The Making Of The Book

Writer Sharon Gosling started as an entertainment journalist, writing companion books for various television shows and movies and eventually becoming a young adult novelist. She’s no stranger to the world of Penny Dreadful having written two successful Victorian era young adult novels.  In this interview, Sharon talks about her work in writing the fan essential The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful, the process of making it, her writing process and being on the set of Penny Dreadful.

First of all, tell us a little bit about yourself.

I live in a very small village in the north of England, surrounded by fells and sheep, with my husband and a cat who likes to surprise me by hiding perfectly unharmed baby rabbits under my bed.

 

How did you get started as a writer? Have you always wanted to be a writer?

I never wanted to be anything but a writer. As a teenager I realized that I needed some way to support myself as I tried to be a novelist, and I hit upon journalism. I started while I was still at school, writing book reviews for a national magazine and doing general articles and interviews for a local magazine in my hometown. Then I did a Literature degree, during which I continued to work for national magazines. When I graduated, I was lucky enough to be given a job as a staff writer on one of them and things slowly grew from there.

 

You started as an entertainment journalist then ventured into Young Adult Literature with The Diamond Thief and The Ruby Airship. Can you tell us more about The Diamond Thief and The Ruby Airship?

The Diamond Thief is set in London in the 1880s and follows the exploits of Rémy Brunel, a young French trapeze artist who also happens to be the best jewel thief in Europe. Her master brings her to London to steal a famous diamond from the Tower of London, but she finds herself pitted against a determined policeman called Thaddeus Rec. They end up having to work together to thwart a greater threat to the city. The Ruby Airship is the sequel, and I’ve just finished writing the third in the series. It will be out in 2016 and is called The Sapphire Cutlass.

EVA GREEN’S BIGGEST MYSTERY 

 

Uniqueness is a special edge of her talent. Eva Green first attracted the attention of the audiences with her bold scenes in the legendary Bertolucci’s “The Dreamers”. And she was remembered. Till this day she has to fend off journalists with questions about her demonstrative nudity in the film. “Yes, I filmed something that was nearly a porn scene! But the film isn’t about that! The erotica in the film is a tool, which demonstrates the liberation of the antagonists from social taboos, the film is about 1968, about the revolution in people’s minds.”

So Eva doesn’t like discussing this topic. Anyway, international fame found her after the role of Vesper Lynd, a Bond girl, in “Casino Royale”. She followed it up with gothic and mysterious roles in “The Golden Compass” and “Franklyn”, and with a femme fatale role in “Sin City 2”. In the TV show “Penny Dreadful”, she exorcises the Devil and fights vampires. Why this choice of roles? She thinks it’s the “best way to liberate one’s self”. She feels the need to transform even during photoshoots. She can be a pin-up girl, a real lady, a seductive creation of the dark forces – anyone, really! Even her last name has been changed due to circumstances: it’s pronounced “Green” in English, but it actually sounds as “Grayne”, as her Father is a Swede. Eva’s also not a brunette but a natural blonde. Even in her soul she’s a little infantile, modest and fearful. But she dyed her hair and became a vamp, which she doesn’t regret.

 

ELLE: Is there anything we don’t know about you?

Eva Green: I often play confident and powerful women. People think that I’m like that in real life too. Labeling people is habitual but I’m a closed-off and shy person. This is why during photo sessions I try to be bolder and I choose eccentric and dramatic looks for my red carpet outings like Galliano and McQueen, which I love, and which have a certain level of oomph, but I try to avoid this type of escapades in real life.

 

ELLE: What are your everyday clothes?

EG: Black leggings, biker boots and a cool t-shirt, for example.

 

ELLE: How do you feel when people closely watch you and judge you?

EG: At first I had panic attacks! But as outings in the spotlight became more frequent, I started to be more confident. You don’t need special skills for that. You just need to understand why you’re getting the attention and be proud of a job well-done. I concentrate by listening to classical music. During shoots I often listen to Chopin.
