“I’m the money,” asserts Vesper Lynd (aka Eva Green) to Daniel Craig’s James Bond in the 2006 remake of Casino Royale. As the sexually charged banter ricochets between Green’s character and Craig’s, her smoldering blue eyes give off an intensity sharp enough to penetrate the cold heart of her colleague, yet warm enough to win over her audience, who, despite her guarded exterior, find Vesper vulnerable, sweet, clever and likeable. She’s smarter and more sensual than your average Bond girl, and in this breakout role, we watch Green evoke more range in one gaze than many actors do in an entire feature.

That was five years ago, and since this killer performance — which won the young actress a BAFTA — Green has been steadily carving her niche as master of dark, impassioned roles. She took to these very early on, starting with her film debut in the Bernardo Bertolucci incestuous drama The Dreamers, where she memorably bathes with her onscreen brother and their modest American “protégé.” In Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven, she’s the fierce Queen of Jerusalem at the time of the Crusades, and in The Golden Compass, again alongside Daniel Craig, she’s the queen of witches, but this time her powers allow her to fly. Currently, Green stars as Morgan in the new cable series Camelot on Starz — a network known for original series with penchant for sex and drama — as a Goth seductress and the ambitious heir to King Arthur’s throne, battling her brother for control of the kingdom. Next is her dream character, Angélique Bouchard, in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, a remake of the classic 1960s vampire TV show, scheduled for a 2012 release. Alongside Johnny Depp, who plays Barnabas Collins, Green is a love-scorned witch — a siren, but like none we’ve ever seen.

But for all these powerful female roles, where she reduces her lovers to pieces, in person, the French-born Eva Green is anything but. The self-proclaimed “shy” actress is actually quite mellow. Save for her remarkable good looks, it’s hard to imagine this calm starlet — whose wry humor that every once in a while cuts through her serious demeanor — as a man-eater. With a throaty voice that sounds well beyond her 30 years when speaking English coupled with a breathy French dialect that could win over even the most staunch Anglophile, Green at times appears to live in two separate worlds.

Eva Green rose to fame as the Bond girl who won the heart of 007 in Casino Royale. Now she’s back in more familiar territory as the elemental, mysterious Morgan in Camelot, she tells Elizabeth Day – dabbling in witchcraft and reinventing nudity.

It is a sunny, blue-sky day when I meet the actress Eva Green. The London streets are peppered with cherry blossom and the heady scent of fake tan hangs thickly above the city like ozone. It is a day for white linen and flowing dresses and flip-flops. But when Green arrives, it is clear that she is not embracing the joys of spring time. Her tiny frame is swathed in black and dark grey and she is wearing a heavy coat over a lace blouse, jeans and boots. The pale flawlessness of her face is accentuated by jet-black hair and smudged eye-shadow the colour of coal dust. The overall effect is rather striking: a cross between Miss Havisham and an astonishingly beautiful extra from Twilight.

“I have a dark side in the way I think everybody has,” Green says, taking off her sunglasses. She orders a disappointingly tame berry smoothie rather than a cup of virgin’s blood. Yet she acknowledges that, professionally speaking, she is drawn to roles that are “evil but damaged. It’s fun to play evil”. She looks at me calmly with blue eyes. “I like characters that have secrets. It’s nice not to know it all. Complex is interesting.”

Hi guys! I just wanted to let you know that I didn’t see the recent rude comments about Eva until this morning and have since deleted them. I have also banned the person who posted them, so hopefully that is the last of the ugliness here. If for some reason any other tacky comments slip through the cracks before we see them, please don’t hesitate to let us know and we’ll take care of them.

Thank you guys so much for being so sweet, helpful and respectful to us and each other. We really appreciate it. 🙂

On Thursday, 12th of May 2011, Robert Coutts, CEO of 46664 Bangle Initiative unveiled the 46664 Bangle Legacy Book at the Montblanc Bond Street boutique, London. A memorable moment for Montblanc and especially Lutz Bethge, CEO Montblanc International, who had the honour to strengthen his support for the cause by writing the foreword of the 46664 Bangle Legacy Book.

The 46664 Bangle Legacy Book visually chronicles the 46664 bangle story which began three years ago, when the 46664 Bangle Program was established on the occasion of the 90th birthday of Nelson Mandela in order to raise awareness of HIV / Aids.

Today it continues to work in the area of HIV prevention – especially in South Africa where the 46664 Bangle aims to raise significant funding
for HIV / Aids prevention and helps to create jobs for those most affected by this global disease.

Underscoring Nelson Mandela’s inspiring humanitarian legacy and his believe that nobody should be reduced to a number, the Bangle Program is named after his prisoner number. The 46664 bangles represent the organisation’s action to address the broader social injustices of society and to continue Nelson Mandela’s legacy of helping others. At least 60 percent from the sales of the bangles will go directly to the HIV / Aids prevention campaign.

Montblanc in support of the 46664 Bangle Initiative

Brand Ambassador Eva Green joined Montblanc at the launch event of the 46664 Bangle Legacy Book to show their continued support for the initiative and The Nelson Mandela Foundation. Montblanc has been a venerable supporter of the 46664 initiative since its inception in 2008, when the 46664 bangles were launched in selected Montblanc boutiques worldwide. The 46664 Bangle is the only non-Montblanc product that is sold in selected Montblanc stores all around the world.

Tim Burton fans in Los Angeles can rejoice now that his LACMA exhibit is open. The Wrap took the chance to chat with the director at the exhibition’s opening. Of his Dark Shadows adaptation (currently in production), Burton says, “we’re sort of getting right in there.” He confirms the project has a “weird tone,” and will be somewhat soap-opera-esque (like the 1960s TV show that precedes it), but adds:

“I’m early into it because it’s a funny tone, and that’s part of what the vibe of the show is, and there’s something about it that we want to get. But when you look at it, it’s pretty bad. I’m hoping that it will be — it’s early days, let’s put it — I’m very intrigued by the tone. It’s a real ethereal tone we’re trying to go for and I don’t know yet.”

The good news is that Burton won’t be shooting the film in 3-D, or at least he currently has “no plans for that.” Stars Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote and Chloe Moretz will appear in all their 2-D glory.
