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.

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.

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.

Eva Green shattered the bubbly, sex-crazed Bond Girl stereotype with her eloquent and seamless turn as Vesper Lynd in 2006’s explosive blockbuster “Casino Royale.”

But the French beauty has always been an indie darling at heart, first winning acclaim for taking us on a twisted romantic journey in Bernardo Bertolucci’s “The Dreamers.” Now Green returns to her roots with “Cracks,” starring as the sophisticated yet shattered Ms. G, who battles her forbidden love for a female students while trying to tame a fierceful student body at a secluded 1930s British boarding school.

NextMovie caught up with Ms. Green to talk “Cracks,” Johnny Depp, and her burning desire to kick some ass.

What drew you to “Cracks”?
It was such a unique script — the tension in it and the kind of old-fashioned feeling, we don’t make movies like this anymore. And the character is so complex and strong and seems full of confidence, seems perfect. But underneath she’s a very vulnerable character. Gift for an actor, so many things to play.

On the new Starz series “Camelot,” Green treats herself big-time — and makes the most of it.

There she is, as Morgan, in the series’ opening scene, fiercely facing down King Uther, the father Morgan believes has betrayed her. Drawing on her sorcery skills, she soon will arrange the king’s sudden death. She means to succeed him on the throne. And when Uther’s unknown son, Arthur, emerges to claim the crown, Morgan declares war on her half brother as well as the wizard Merlin, Arthur’s mysterious mentor.

“This castle and realm should be mine,” she proclaims.

“Camelot” premieres Friday at 10 p.m. EDT (airing opposite “Merlin,” a retelling of the Arthurian legend with Merlin as a young man, now in its third season on Syfy).

“Camelot” stars heartthrob Jamie Campbell Bower (the “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” film sagas) as Arthur, a carefree, impetuous young man who was raised from infancy as a commoner and is as surprised as anyone to learn his destiny: to lead Britain from a dark, troubled present into a bright, hope-filled tomorrow.

Joseph Fiennes (“Shakespeare in Love,” the TV series “FlashForward”) is Merlin, who has foreseen the legend of Arthur and aims to see it come to pass.

But Merlin and Arthur will have their hands full with Morgan as their rival.
